    Nothing special I use wifi when at home Bluetooth always on connected to my Gear S3 so is NFC, Auto brightness. Only social media app I occasionally use is Facebook but do have Google Plus and SnapChat installed. I do use YouTube app a lot and I noticed it don't drain my battery as fast (watching videos) as it did on my LG V20.

    Finally this weekend after watching so many people with great battery life and a few not so great I decided to stretch my battery and see what I get from it
    This is with wqhd+ sice day 1, optimize mode, location off, WiFi on for 13.5 hours and 1 1/2 hours on the subway with no signal (rest of the time signal was full bars 100%)
    Listen to music on Bluetooth from 2 hours (gym)
    Watched a couple of movies, 3 TV shows, read for a couple of hours, a few phone calls,
    texted all day (whatsapp)
    Internet about a hour
    youtube about 45 minutes
    This is what I got after 38 hours since unplugging

    Did you use power saver mode at all and what do you mean by "optimize mode"?

    22% left and just 3 hours of SOT. Crap battery. And that's with WiFi on, Bluetooth off, auto brightness off, location off, etc....

    Optimize mode is the performance mode the phone comes in, along with 1080p, I left it on the mode it came in but change the screen to
    1440p (wqhd+) that has virtually no impact on the battery
    Main thing is that you have a great signal full bars if possible (I live in Manhattan, New York)
    I keep location off (don't use it unless I need it)
    WiFi I only use it when I'm home
    I turn it off when I leave for work everyday
    No I didn't use power saving mode
    Don't need to on this phone (unless you go camping for a week or something)

    It's not great. 2-3 bars and I'm roaming, but even the day that I turned on airplane mode and used the phone on WiFi only the battery didn't give me more than 4h30 of sot

    Ok, tried to kill the battery today with heavy use. I do have battery saving "mid" enabled. Over 7 hours of screen time. Lots of YouTube, web browsing ECT. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth on all day with a fair bit of speaker use.

    Just to illustrate something here...can the S8+ be used in such a way so as to squeeze out enormous amount of SOT? Yes. Is this realistic for somebody who actually uses their phone for work (i.e., no passive consumption all day, but active use instead)? No, absolutely not. I did a test today along the lines of "what if I really limited my interaction and mostly just consumed content". First two hours were actual productive SOT. The rest that you see is passive consumption, a mix of movie streaming, local playback, and YouTube.

    When I took the screen shots I still had another 1.5 hours at least of Netflix playback left to squeeze out, putting my total SOT right around 8h. All performance settings on the phone maxed out, minus AOD and black theme applied. So yeah, it is possible to get ridiculous SOT in line with what some folks here are reporting, but unless music listening/streaming, movie/streaming video watching, and reading is all you do this is a ridiculous example. I stand by my position before. In actual use, the S8+ is good for 4.5 to 6.5 hours of actual screen time, depending on workload. Nothing to write home about and perfectly in line with the S7 Edge, if not ever so slightly worse.

    Well
    To be honest like I said in my last post
    I read, my phone is my main book reader, and I read about 2 hours a day
    Using play books from Google
    Using black background and sepia letters, that will give you 20 minutes of reading per 1% of battery
    So I read about 2 hours on Sat and another 2 on Sunday (those 4 hours of reading account for only 12% of my battery) I also watch 2 movies and 3 episodes of billions (TV show) they were already downloaded to my phone
    (file sharing)(torrents) not streaming
    I don't stream (Exept for YouTube of Wich I did about 45 minutes) 2 hours listening to music on Bluetooth (gym) and another 2 on Sunday (gym again) (that's downloaded music already in my phone (huge library there) no streaming music either (never do)
    the rest was mostly texting (whatsapp)
    The texting took hours (like always) don't know how many
    All together the phone gave me 38 hours total and 12 hours SOT
    To me this is a normal day, it's what I do every day
    I know a
    Maybe in this context my reading at 20 min per 1% could be misleading, but it's something I do every day
    I fact if it was possible for a human being to read 24 hours straight, that could be achieved by spending only 50% of your battery, or better yet you could read for 48 hours straight in 1 full charge (48 hour SOT)
    This is what my screen looks like when I read

    Hmm no impact on battery? I've always heard having the phone on wqhd+ is a massive drain.
