    Well I wasted money on Package Disabled Pro because Knox is still eating away at my battery between 8-15% per day.

    Make it so.

    How do you know this? Once I disabled Knox, it disappeared from my app list.

    Ugh... that sucks. Mine says it's still running too when I click on it. Damn Samsung...

    Still, I think the battery isn't too bad. Especially if you can plug it in for 30 minutes or so in the afternoon.

    I think you have to do disable it outside of the phone, like with Windows based debloater. by gatesjunior. With this ou have to enable developer options and enable USB debugging mode.

    Having said that I wouldn't chance it myself as it may be needed by the OS and not boot after disabling.

    I just "reenabled" Knox with Package Disabler Pro and went to the app and it has used 29% battery today! So I can confirm two things... 1)Package Disabler Pro is not what is says it is (probably just hides the app) and 2) Knox is the culprit! Anyone else know how to get rid of it or tame it down?

    I didn't see a difference after purchasing the app. Which Knox app(s) are you guys who are seeing success freezing?

    I show 2 Knox apps in the Disabler Pro
    "Knox" and "KnoxAppsUpdateAgent"
    I disabled them both all day today... not real change in battery. I reenabled them and and Knox says it used 29% battery... not quite the "disabling" I was hoping for.

    Are we sure the battery numbers for Knox are directly related to Knox? If you go to other system apps, it will show the exact same percentage. I think its just a percentage usage by that particular set of apps in system. Check out Locaton Services, several spots down the list. Exact same percentage.

    That's a good point. I don't see location services on my AT&T S7 but the settings app shows the same percentage. So what can we do?

    Not a Samsung but step your game up. Every single Android I've had is pretty much like this, unless custom ROMed.
    That's why I used to carry 2 phones around, company iphone and Android. Android will get me through the 6 hours I need after work.

    What causes these long plateaus (see pic in post #138)? Whatever is causing them is the reason you are getting long battery life. Remove those and you have the same slope as me.

    the plateaus are device sleeping lol. Thats a good thing every Android user seeks.
    On my Power user days that consist of 12 hours I get over 5.5 hours of SOT with over 3 hours of milk music pay.

    How are you getting it to deep sleep? Just but freezing the 2 Knox apps? Are you using Greenify or some other app?

    Also, what aren't people freezing the third knox (status) app? Does it trip knox?

    All info you seek can be found in my posting on Page 4 of this thread. I went into good detail on what I have going on.

    I am still worried. I charged phone overnight, unplugged it, looked at GSAM and battery temp was 70F. Over an hour and half, the temp shoots up to 85F and starts to level off. Battery loss was only 2% though. Looking at it again I have 1h 44m since unplugged, held awake 1:36:43, 11%. I don't understand these stats, how can held awake be almost same as time since unplugged but only be 11%?

    I am supposing that some app or service is responsible for this, not that it just decides to warm itself up just for fun. How to figure this out without root on M? I am hoping this isn't a HW problem. I really don't want to swap the phone at this point and risk something worse, everything else seems to run fine.

    I've been experiencing similar battery issues. It was great after the first four or five days, but now it's just taken a dive. I turn it on the in the morning, and 30 minutes later (of using it, screen on) I've lost 10%. It's like I watch that number dip further and further down. I have gone into apps and disabled ones that I don't care for or need, and set other apps to sync either daily or manually. I always have wi-fi on, and while I'm careful with battery life I don't go disabling tons of apps just to save a few hours of battery. It just concerns me how much the phone seems to be using, and how quickly the battery drain has begun not even a week after I first got it. I feel it should be a slow trickle of battery, not a random avalanche.

    I also don't think that you should be required to purchase a separate app program to disable apps to get good battery life. You can start disabling so many apps and features you're left with half a phone. Instead, there should be better tools to help you understand and manage the battery, not just say "Android System." It's frustrating how different an experience 3-4 days makes

    What service provider do you have? Also have you thought about doing a factory reset to completely wipe the phone.
    You can also trying wiping cache instead of a full wipe. Do you have GPS turned on? In settings I make sure I turn off any AUTO update features along with the smart controls. That seems to help a lot. Yesterday I got about 5 hours of on screen time and a full day and half of battery life. Which to me is pretty good. There is no way that would have happened on my S6 edge

    In my case, it's definitely Wi-Fi AC connection that is causing the battery drain. If I connect to 802.11n router, battery is OK.
    but If I connect to my 802.11ac AC2600 router at home, S7 CPU usage suddenly go up and cause big battery drain problem. I also noticed that web browsing on my S7 (with 433Mbps AC signal) is slower than my old S4 (with 150mbps N signal)
    I don't know if it's my router issue or S7 issue.

    I agree with this. I noticed that if I login to the 2.4 ghz network battery life is better than the 5 ghz network on my AC router
