    After having my s7 for about 6 month,the battery life is non-existent. From 100% to dead in 3 -4 hours. Fast charging no longer works. When I charge using my cable,it says it will take 6+ hours to fully charge.wireless charging takes about 4. Charging time will change within minutes though. I lay on my charger and will say 3(ish) hours to fully charge. Then 3 min later it will say 4 and a half hours to fully charge.it appears that the system is using sometimes up to 90% of the battery. Is that normal? None of this can be normal,right? I've already did a factory reset,wiped the cache,tried multiple chargers.plus if I use it more that 20 min,it gets so hot it almost burns.i cant be 100% sure but it seems like it started after an update.

    Is it still warranty-covered?

    No, it is not normal. Have you cleared the cache partition and rebooted? As asked, is it under warranty?
    If it's as old as my s7, you may need a new battery and a system reset. Can you post a screenshot of your battery usage?

    Also no,its not under warranty unfortunately. I have wiped the cache and rebooted and even did a factory reset,still no improvement.

    I figured that was my only option,but i keep coming back to the battery usage being so high with android system and had me wondering if maybe it was a bug causing it.i just hate to pay to have a new battery put in and the problem still continue because it was an issue with the software.

    If you want to confirm, enter safe mode for a day and see if the battery life improves to rule out any rogue apps.
