I've had the phone just a week and if I am using heavy then the battery is pretty good, lasts 4 hours plus. Better than my G5.
However, if I am barely using and only sending the occasional WhatsApp and not much else, then the battery doesn't seem to last as long, for example it drained to 50% today with very little use, only 1 hour of SOT. Wifi and location were on, but Bluetooth off.

I've taken some screenshots of battery stars with gSam. Could someone help me decipher what is causing the drain? Or if this is normal behaviour?

Everyone is saying that this phone has amazing standby battery life because of 7.0, Doze, etc. So I am confused!

Looks like you have something running in The background keeping it from falling into deep sleep which is why. Unfortunately I suck @ troubleshooting these kinds of scenarios. My guess would be a Google service of some type. My brother had a problem with Gmail one time that was draining his battery while the phone was in sleep
