It's amazing how much we actually use our phones in a given day, especially when we watch "videos"! Rate this thread to express how many hours of screen-on time you can get on the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge before depleting the battery.

Then, drop a comment if you have anything to add!

Got the same variant and was pretty impressed. Yesterday I had it 20 hours running until 2 percent. Sounds not much but I had 7 hours screen on time. Think this is pretty good imo.

This sounds not normal. It seems you got some apps running in the background and eating your battery. What apps are on your list at the top in settings?
