    I'm coming from the S7 Edge and am having terrible battery life with my new S8. Shouldn't this battery be better than the S7? I have tried everything I could think of so far to make it better but no luck so far. If I can't figure this out soon, I'm going back to the S7 (even though I love the S8, I need a battery to last a full day on only moderate use). My only requirement is that I must leave the bluetooth on all the time.

    I just noticed that my 'Exchange Email' is taking up 23% of battery usage. What settings should I change to make this better?

    Any ideas will be appreciated.

    How long have you had the phone? Can you show a screenshot of your battery stats, please?

    I have had the phone only since Saturday morning. As for the screenshot, I have been charging the phone so it doesn't show anything of value. However, when I looked at it this morning, it showed 23% usage for my exchange email.

    Try closing that out or uninstalling and reinstalling. I am experiencing amazing battery life, something like 18 hours with the phone per day and 5-7 hours of SoT with a ton of stuff running all day. Also connected to the Gear S3 all day and bluetooth headphones for 6 plus hours. This has been the best battery on Android I have every seen but far.

    Great question as I suspect quite a few awesome battery posts are actually the plus and not the regular
