    My mind is literally blown with this battery life, Samsung has really outdone themselves.

    Pushed my S8 last night all the way down to 14 percent and got over 6 hrs. The 835 is impressive.

    I had a fairly light day with my S8: About two hours of screen time, Android Auto, Samsung Pay, email, Facebook, etc. Still to be at 63% after 12 hours is pretty amazing. I hope it lasts this way!

    Day 2 of having my S8+ (Verizon). Wow, just wow. I really pushed it this time; with QHD+, sync on, using GPS, heavy YouTube and video streaming, Facebook chat, web browsing, and some phone calls, with around 25-30% brightness most of the time (the screen is bright enough that it doesn't need to be set any brighter than that, at least for me), I got over 9 HOURS of SOT! Probably could have pushed it to 9.5 hours or more, but I decided that enough is enough. How impressive is that? See for yourselves!

    How did Samsung do this? I'm thoroughly impressed; this is the best battery life of all the phones I've had!

    I have the zagg glass. It's horrible on rhe s8. Returning it tomorrow.
    I had the Zagg curved glass screen protector on my S8+. It was horrible on my phone as well because it didn't adhere to the edge display, even though the mold to install the screen protector makes it foolproof to install it. I took it off today and installed a Yootech screen protector instead.

    Do not feel bad, everyone is going to get different results. It varies quite a bit depending on apps installed, usage, reception, etc. Just because you are not getting the screen on time that some others are does not mean anything is wrong at all.

    For comparison, here is my S7 edge.

    I'm amazed. The S8+ is the best battery I've ever had on a phone. Actively TRYING to kill it. 100% brightness. QHD. Streaming movies, Twitch, YouTube. Beyond impressed. Well done, Samsung.

    I do too. Friday my battery was down to 50% with only 45 minutes SOT. My 7 Plus only goes down 7% max throughout work. Yesterday I just kept it on airplane mode all day so it was ok. Just seems stupid though to have to do that.

    My experience with S7 Edge was just the opposite. Battery life started off terrible and got better. It only went down drastically after updating to Android 7.0 (one of the reasons you never see me crying about not getting the newest OS fast enough). Ultimately it wouldn't even matter to me anyway, because I always have a wireless charger and when my phone is not in use, I always set it down on it. So battery life has never been a major issue with me.
    My experience with the s7edge was the battery was horrible right off the bat. In 5 hours at work, not using the phone in my pocket. I would be down to 40-50%. Since nougat with it's more advanced doze settings I only lose about 2% an hour when I'm not using the phone. After nougat I can get a whole day out of my phone instead of just 7-8 hours with 2 hours sot. I even got 7 hours sot a few times after nougat.

    Well, here's my stats on my s8+ at almost 24 hours on battery. Auto brightness and WQHD. Not quite as good as everyone else's but still good. The one thing I noticed is the high phone radio and Wi-Fi usage. This is not normal on my other phones. I have good signal too. If it wasn't for the two radios my battery would be amazing

    That's a bummer to disable a new expensive device to make the day, since Apple is going to use Samsung displays on the new iPhone why can't Samsung use a Apple battery then we would have the best of both worlds.
    Now that I'm back with Samsung I need to carry a charger in my car

    They only used 8% & 11% in 22 hours. That isn't so bad.

    So far so good here with the S8. I haven't checked out the stats, but my work place is a giant Faraday Cage. No signal gets in or out. My G5 and Honor 8 left work with 50-60% battery. Yesterday, my first day in that building with the phone, I left with 71%.
