    Can anyone offer any battery life tips? I just got mine, but after a full charge this morning around 7:00, I'm at 69% with only 35 mins of screen-on time. And Android System (44%) and Google Play Services (10%) seem to be eating a ton of battery. I have Google Now turned off.
    After some initial issues, my battery issues are all resolved. I usually run in medium power saving mode. Also, my battery was being eaten when I was on vacation and not in airplane mode, since cellular service was constantly looking for a connection. I keep bluetooth and WiFi off if I'm not using it. Try Settings > Device Maintenance > Battery and at the bottom, the app power monitor can help you see running apps and put them to sleep.360 Security and 360 Boost are pretty good at identifying apps like this, too.

    Look down in the main section. I do not own an S7. But there are threads dealing with an update from this week covering the Gear VR & Occulus. That seemed to be an issue for some.

    I've had this phone since it's come out. I have absolutely no desire to upgrade and highly doubt there will be something released in the upcoming year that will make me dump the S7 for that. It's been a stellar phone so far...no complaints at all. Probably looking at a 3 year phone for me. Good buy!!

    I agree, I could easily keep mine for 2-3 years. Just wait until that S8 comes out though. If the rumor mill is to be believed not sure I'll be able to resist.

    It's been good so far, personally I love the sleekness and its a shame the Note 7 was a disaster but S8 looks like it will blow everyone out of the water.
