    I am getting a touch over 5 hours SOT. I'm satisfied with that. My usage today has been browsing the web, playing music, mobile hot spot for about an hour, a little Boom Beach, and about 40 pictures with the camera. I also used Facebook Messenger for about an hour, and a few other apps for a short period of time.

    I have both and the edge drains slightly slower than the S7. Saying that can easily get 36 hours out of both of them with my typical useage.

    Hi, That is amazing battery life! I can hardly get 3-3.5 hours of SOT! I have an international exynos unlocked version. Is something wrong? I am on 3G the whole time. Usage includes browsing, calling, youtube, social media etc.

    My carrier is AT&T, as to the processor, I can't say for sure. Is there a way to tell? I know some of these are made in different places, mine was made in Korea.

    If Android System is showing first in battery usage then it is Snapdragon, if screen first it is exynos. Got that info from xda. 5 hours of sot with at&t is good actually.

    I'd love to know if people getting more than 4-5hrs of SOT have the brightness set to 1%, nothing pushing updates, and nothing intensive going on all day.

    On an average day taking a few photos, maybe a video or two, checking email (set to push), Facebook(set to manual), Twitter, few YouTube videos, Web browsing, and an hours worth of calls I average 4.3% battery drain per hour on Wifi. I tested it out on the town taking photos at an event and I still managed to make it a full day but no more than 4.5 hrs SOT.

    Make it so.

    My screen brightness is set to 50%. It edged downward automatically at night, not sure how low it goes, maybe down to 45%?

    I get around 3.5 with brightness at around 90%

    Weirdly, I have the regular s7 and for some reason my battery varies wildly. If I have power saver on and not moving locations constantly I get up to 6 and a half hours of on screen time, if I move a lot I get about 4 hours tops. Without power saver on I get about 4 and a half hours and 2 and a half hours respectively for not changing locations and changing.

    That is patently untrue. My tmobile Snapdragon 820 phone has been remarkable ever since that tmobile bug fix update last week.

    Are you on T-Mobile? I know that the April update had battery life as one of the improvements. Before the update, Android System was always the main culprit (like you originally said). I'm just wondering whether an S7 Edge update came out as well for T-Mobile.

    I haven't remotely come close to 5 hrs SOT. I've had the phone for just over 1 week,bought 1 for me & wifey part of Verizon buy 1 get 1 free promo. Upgraded from my AT&T S3 and her S4. 1st day barely better than S3, under 2 hrs, almost all time on WiFi. 2nd day much better,about 4hrs and that was going from 100% down to about 7%.Facebook,G+,Flipboard,CoC mostly. Since then it's been about 3hrs roughly with the phone idle most of the time. Hope it gets better because 3hrs SOT on this phone is quite disappointing even with brightness @ 50%.

    T-mobile not so Evil Snapdragon with latest firmware update.

    I'm a moderate user getting 5.5 - 6Hr SOT spread within 2.5 days then recharge at 20% or so.
    I'm more then happy with but wanted to take it step further , Last night I decided Netflix time making it 1/4 way through episode 7 of Breaking Bad

    My setup,
    :Screen Brightness 80%
    :LTE-VOLTE enabled
    :Weather Underground 2 hour refresh.
    :Rain Alarm Pro - Auto refresh
    :Gmail Push active.
    :Samsung Pay:

    Screen shot Graph info 1 Day-14 Hour use summery.
    4/9 100% off charger device slept overnight 12 hours 3% loss to start day 4/10.
    4/10 stared with normal use - Emails , Texting , Twitter , Milk Music , Internet , Samsung pay use , blah blah blah.
    Late day 72% 1.5 Hr SOT had been racked up & it was Netflix time
    App played through evening then device sleep at 33%
    4/11 wake-up 2% loss during 8 hr sleep & it was Netflix time once again.
    Device ran so cool very little heat generated good stuff.

    If I was daily power user 8Hr + SOT very possible on T version with latest firmware

    How did you only lose 3% of battery life overnight, especially over 12 hours. Also how are your Android OS and Android System so low?

    How? Well that's what latest T-mobile firmware update provided.
    Before update performance was good I had no complaints, after update it's even better much lower Android System numbers....heck Playstore numbers are sometime higher then Android System on my device by a couple %. Just depends how device is played.
    T-mobile update was game changer major performance boost on many levels.
    Hopefully other carries will follow soon
