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 Tab S7 / S7 Plus before depleting the battery.

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

On a more serious note, if brightness is set all the way up I can see the 7+ lasting 4 hours or even less. Not only it can get very bright, but the battery life is average, especially on 120Hz, where I'm permanently at because it looks a lot better. It's a waste of a device if you go down to 60Hz.

I actually get around 11 hours screen on time on the S7. Wifi and Location constantly turned on, 50% brightness, 60hz. Do a little gaming, constantly watching videos and doing light programming (still learning Python via Pydroid3).

Going to return my S7 Canadian version, 256 memory :cool:
Got it as an open box from, 750 CAD, right away charged to 100, set 60 Hz and power saving, disabled few apps...

Aaaand i cannot kill this battery, look at the screen time.

Usage pattern - few hrs after work, YT and browsing. Those few days when I only used Xodo to read a book, 2-3% per hour... couldn't believe.

Now, considering that I kept my Note 9 on Oreo and still getting 8-9h SOT, people over at N9 forums regretting updating as it killed the SOT - with all that I will hold off on updating S7 to Android 11, relying on those brave (or desperate) here to update yours and report back how is battery life with UI 3.1

Anyway, the screen shots attached

    I hate how Samsung has implemented battery stats. Tracking usage over an extended period is a chore compared to older versions of OneUI.

    Anyway, at 96/48hz my S7 on A10 is getting about 12-13hrs when I draw. Also own an S7+ that just arrived. Paid 285 for the S7 and 361 for +.
