    I've had the Verizon S7 for about a month now and not sure why the battery is as bad as it is. I literally lose 1 percent a minute it seems. I have just about everything turned off on it and doesn't seem to make a difference. Wifi/bluetooth is off, location services, syncing, brightness, etc.... are all off. I've read numerous threads on what to turn off and have done so.

    I'm coming from an iphone 6 with much less battery capacity and it definitely lasts much longer than this phone without turning everything off. What's the secret for this phone? Ready to get rid of it. I'd hate to see how much less I would have with normal things turned on instead of gimping the phone.

    Anytime someone complains about their battery I immediately recommend Forcedoze. It's significantly improved my battery life. I'm averaging a good 6 and a half hours screen on time with my Galaxy S7 (snapdragon non-edge)

    You could post your battery stats so we can see what's eating the battery.

    You could restrict FB background data. That would reduce power consumption. The best fix is to simply disable FB and use Chrome instead since it's also able to give you notifications.

    You gotta get rid of Facebook. It's using more battery than your screen.
