When you sleep, does your phone sleep, or does it stay up all night and crunch 1s and 0s? Rate this thread to express how you deem the speed at which the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge's battery drains under standby conditions. A higher rating indicates that when the phone is not in use, the battery drains minimally.

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

I had been having an issue where mine was never entering deep sleep. I tracked it to two things. Google voice recognition on every screen and auto backup. Once I turned those off, the battery drain seems much improved, although I only made those changes this afternoon.

If you're having issues you might try to identify the wakelock via ADB. Run the below code in a loop and see what pops up. It worked for me.
Quote:

adb shell dumpsys power | grep -i partial_wake_lock

That being said, I sure miss having root to run BetterBattery Stats. . . . Sigh. . . .

sorry for the stupid question: does S7 Edge enter deep sleep automatically?

I am having a serious battery drain issue in standby. I did just turn off my google voice recognition on every screen (thanks czucker) so I'll see what happens. Im kinda upset with the performance though. I picked up the phone on Tuesday from my local sprint store (pre-ordered and it came in early) so maybe the phone is still learning my usage patterns but still the standby battery drain is concerning...

Maybe I have the same issue. How could you turn the Google voice recognition and the auto backup off?

I fixed standby drain by turning off NFC and set OneDrive to only upload when charging. Donno if thats your problem, but its my best tips since it worked for me

You will find voice recognition in the Google app under settings/voice/OK Google. The second one is in settings/backup and reset under samsung account.

Never goes to deep sleep
So I've had this phone for about a week, I kept hoping that the battery drain will get betters, specifically "Android System." Android System uses about 30-35% followed by screen (which is normal) followed by Android is at 16%. When the screen is off it drains almost as much batter as when the screen is on so if someone can please help me with the battery drain I'd really apriciate it.
