    My galaxy S7 screen on battery life is horrendous. The standby is fine, but it just drops with the screen on. I always keep battery saver mode on, and I have had this problem for a while, but never as bad as this. Any advice? Here are some screenshots

    (The wifi active drain is strange because I didn't have wifi on for most of the day)

    1. Looks like you're not updated. On the latest update, the power saving icon should be on the left as it's now a systrm setting.

    2. How old is the device?

    3. Your signal is horrendous. I would expect subpar battery life in those conditions. The worse the signal, the worse the battery life.

    1: That's actully another problem that I have been having, my phone isn't reviving the update
    2: I got it last Christmas
    3:I actully think that might be it because I just took a 2 hour trip and the signal was great the whole time, and I was really surprised but the good battery life. But does the signal drain happen when wifi is turned on?

    Try using SmartSwitch on a PC to update.

    Wifi has nothing to do with the battery drain from low signal. Low signal, bad battery. The phone will use up a lot of power trying to keep the connection.
