    Im giving up on watching battery life. I have even deleted Gsam off my phone. So far the phone lasts as long as I need it. As long as it doesn't die within an hour with minimal use like my note 5 I'm good. Lol

    Still really really good compared to the LG V10 it replaced which has the same size battery. It's a huge difference. Only lost 6% the other night in standby, didn't top it off that morning and still had just over 60% after a 9 hour day at work with moderate usage. I've had charge cycles with over 6 hours screen on time with some standby time in there too. Would never get even 4 hours of screen on time with the V10 and it would even heat up more than the S8 also. Had 2 different V10's and both had the same results. Very impressed with this phone.

    This is when I realized that this phone is a beast, I had to use GPS all day on high accuracy, Quad Hd, then when I got home watched YouTube for about 2 hours and yeah..

    There's something wrong. Bad signal or not,that's not normal
    And it don't even bad signal. So I'm so confused and frustrated especially considering that I'm turning off a lot of features to try and save battery.

    But still no one has been able to figure out my issue or point me in the right direction.

    But you aren´t alone on that boat. My highest Sot was around 4h Sot. Good signal, no games, just some social Apps. This battery was been worst than in my previous S7 edge. Even the standby drain looks higher on S8.
    Just installed BBS and i have a kernel wakelock that i can´t find no info - "128060000.decon_f"
    Someone knows anything about this wakelock ?

    Have I been reading this wrong all this time? You said 3 hours and 45 minutes, but your screen shot seems to show over 4 hours , which is not terrible.
    Yeah I don't know why it says that cause I've never seen 4 hours sot on my phone. As an example if you look at this screenshot i have 1h45 of sot and I'm half way through the battery. Means I won't pass 3:30/3:45.
    Not sure why it says 4 hours cause that neevr happened to me.
    And anyway 4 hours is pretty crappy compared to the rest of you who get between 6 and 9 hours without turning off all the features of you phone like I have to do.

    I'm pleased with my screen time and battery use. I have a UK version S8+ and didn't have great signal for about 4 hours yesterday.

    I see dramatically different battery life when I'm at work or when I'm at home on WiFi. It's when I'm on WiFi that battery is ridiculously good. This is today at home all on WiFi. I had just over of 30 minutes SOT and my battery was still at 99%. That blew me away. Here's my stats at 80% now

    Well this is pretty awesome life I used GPS to get to the zoo, used Google fit to track my activity in the zoo so it kept GPS on for 2 hours, and I also used GPS to get home. This also is about 1 GB of hotspot for 30 mins. Wifi was on only while sleeping.

    Very happy considering how much I abused it with the GPS. This was also with 100+ pictures and a bunch of group texting.

    I agree. The standby time has been nothing short of amazing for me.
