    Somebody on a another topic said to turn off global and set your mobile network to CDMA I am assuming GSM if your carrier uses it. I haven't tried it yet.

    I have the HTC One M8. Just updated to Marshmallow. I have used two battery apps Deep Sleep Battery Saver Pro and recently switched to Greenify. With M having the new DOZE feature, Greenify has in settings Agressive Doze. So far really works great. The BIG users are wifi, bluetooth and app updates/syncing. Most notorious is your push email app and Facebook, they use huge amounts of battery to keep updated. Deep Sleep will turn off things and only check sync a set amount thats adjustable. REALLY reduced battery drain in Android L. With the switch to Android M, Greenify and new built in DOZE has been even better.

    Unfortunately, these are the steps you need to take for brilliant battery life.

    Here's my battery usage. Seems OK to me. Others may disagree.

    OK didn't load up the other pictures. Ignore.

    Damn. That sucks.

    Mine only drops about 1% an hour over night.

    Overall I've been pretty happy with my battery life.
    Just giving an update, after disabling wifi during sleep, a few more bloat apps, and always on display i only lost 4% battery last night during sleep. Wayyy better than the 16% I was getting before the tweaks.
    mumble, grumble. :s That's disappointing.

    I suspect that you have a wakelock somewhere, because your WiFi is on 100% of the time on the GSAM shot and the stats show that the device is active for 3 hr 12 minutes out of 5 hr 47 minutes but the screen was only on for 1 hr 12 minutes. So that two hours could perhaps account for streaming pandora with the screen off, but if that's not the case then that's where I'm suspecting a wakelock.

    Your stats are trending for 3 hours SOT out of 14 hours total usage compared to another user who is trending for 5 hours of SOT over a 24 hour period - so there's definitely room for improvement, we just can't do an apples to apples and say that 5 hours over 24 hours is the goal, because it might be too aggressive or not aggressive enough.

    That's good news, so I changed that setting this morning.

    Have you looked at under Android System , so see what's running?
    I find it odd to see that "camera" has run for 22 seconds, out of the 2 hours my phone has been unplugged. I have not used the camera.

    the exynos doesnt have the battery drain issue. the issue has something to do with snapdragon... hopefully they pusha update that fixes whatever optimization snapdragon left out. th android system should never ever take up more battery than the screen. notice on the exynos versions android system is taking its usual 4-8% on snapdragons its taking 26-34%

    Yeah, got mine down to 1/2 % per hour too. That was what I was getting with the S6.

    You sure knox is disabled? Click on knox in Package disabler and see if it has running = Yes. I bet it does.

    A good part, near 1/2, of the android system is graphics processing when you are using the phone

    Disabling about all of the same bloat with package disabler pro, and disabling location services, I get the same idle drain of 1/2 % per hour as on the S6. And of this 1/2 % per hour an hour, over 15% is android system. I am OK with that.

    Part of this can be the carrier bloat in the US (snapdragon) and not snapdragon vs exynos. On the S6 I found my-tmobile to cause a lot of drain (though it isn't present on the S7).

    i understand what your trying to say but the facts are (at least from ppl posting the shots of their battery on xda) is that the exynos are getting like 10+ hours Screen on time andlike a 24-36 hours battery life with the same stuff disabled ... whereas we are getting 5-6 SOT and 14hours battery life... and the difference is in ours for some reason the sysem is draining the battery. there should not be a 2 times difference in battery life because of "Bloat" i dont care how you try to rationalize it... and dont get me wrong yes the batterylife as is is good enough to get me through the day until im to a charger... but im still perplexed on why were stuck with good battery life and they get excellent battery life.

    I am having the same issue. I downloaded package diabler pro and disabled most bloatware. Knox was using 33% battery, vr gear was 30%. I don't see much improvement today.... The only app that is over 10% is settings... Cant disable that.
    I run my screen at almost 90% and Android OS is almost triple the screen percentage.
    I had a similar problem on my Note 5 but usually I could identify the app and take care of it. I want to see screen time as the highest percentage since I'm always on my phone and run at 90% brightness...

    I turned off the features that I felt were no real use, I have emails sync set to manual rather than push. Regularly clear cache and do a reset every few weeks on all my phones.
    I turn off unused features and sync seldom used mail accounts manually as well, but why would you reset regularly unless something is wrong?
