I've been using my S7 for about a week now and I've noticed that the battery drains on average about 1% per hour when it's not used OVERNIGHT.

Is this acceptable or is it considered too much?

Also is there a useful app that you can restrict or close other applications running in the background when they aren't even open?

For example my biggest battery draining app is 1Password. Even when I don't have it open, it's apparently running in the background. I want to close this and other non-system services from constantly running in the background with the convenience of one-touch app.

Any recommendations please?

Re: Overnight Battery % Question & Closing Background Apps

If you have always on display on, that's pretty normal.

And never use those close background apps services. They are running for a reason. Trying to close them will just increase your battery usage.

I don't consider 1%/hr that bad. When my S7 background usage (according to AccuBattery) gets up around 1.8 % I do a cache partition wipe and it goes down to around 0.6%/ hr.
