Samsung S7 Edge Battery Is Very Horrible by yungcheda(m): 5:50pm On Sep 07, 2016
Please advice. Is it normal for Samsung s7 edge battery to go off after just approximately after 7hrs? Otherwise how can i extend the battery? I was wondering why people said gionee battery was just a number. It is indeed better than Samsung in terms of battery only though and in nigeria, we all know how bad our power supply is.

I got it as a new one from micro station in computer village. What is the average number of hours it should last on heavy usage?
My H+ connection is always ON...

i browse very well with Google Chrome. I heard chrome browsing on pc drains battery faster. I don't know if that also applies to using it on phone.

I belong to a lot of groups on WhatsApp so chats keep coming in although i muted them.

With such amount of usage, What is the average number of hours it should last?

S7 edge has a stellar battery. I honestly don't know why you are experiencing problems. My s6 edge still has a good battery even tho it's a year and 5 months old and quite smaller than s7 edge. Perhaps you should check what's draining your battery.

Pls what is the average battery life span for the usage i described above? I want to know if i should return it
Re: Samsung S7 Edge Battery Is Very Horrible by Nobody: 7:28pm On Sep 07, 2016
Exactly the same reason I sold my s6. The battery was so so horrible I charge it 3-4 times a day. The thing with Samsung phones is when u get it new it gets good battery life, but after a few months the battery deteriorates so bad that it can hardly make it past 2pm. My s6 was getting to 30% by 10am even though i use to have 100% by 7am.

Don't compare gionee m5 battery with s7. Gionee has 6020mah battery and on top of that it has just 720p display. It would last at least 3 times more than s7.

I am coming from the gionee end. Even my m3 was legendary although the hardware wasn't awesome. I intend resetting the s7 edge. Is it a good idea??

Your S7 give you 7 hours of use ? Whats your usage during the day ? Have you put your hungry apps behind a firewall ? Is your data constantly turned on ?
7 hours is not bad................................

They are also replacement batteries for non removable devices. It only involves lifting flaps and screws and the batteries can easily be swapped. Sorry to break the bad news..................................................

7 hours is actually not bad. The op might be a medium user.
If OP was a high user, op would only achieve about 3/4 hours

Bro changing the battery on the s7 is one hell of work and if u are not a professional u are going to screw things up. Plus there are 80% chances u will lose waterproof once the phone is opened unless u take it to authorized personnel. Galaxy s7 and s7 edge are not designed to be opened, even the gurus at ifixit can testify to that. Even galaxy s6 that is not waterproof u still need a lot of work to get to the battery. First u have to remove the back glass using heat,this is way more than a few screws. Just know ur s7 will no longer look like it is when it left the factory once it has been opened.

How many hours does yours last?? It's just admitting that the high end specs can't talky new enjoyed because the battery is horrible.

Once again, please how long does yours last?

17 hours? On what level of usage, comparing that to your usage?
It's only 3600mah

In ur dreams. Of course it can last even 48hrs. Just turn off ur data and use the phone for only making and receiving calls on power saving mode.

Might even last longer, turn off ringer, data, wifi & bluetooth.
Set power saving and 6 days is achievable....
NB: Don't play games either

My own was s6 and u don't want to go near it if battery life matters to u. At. Brand new I was getting like 4-5 hours screen on time, it could last from 7am till 3pm on moderate use. But after a few months I started getting 2 and half hours of screen on time. If I have 100% by 7am the phone would already be at 30% by 11am and by 12 noon I will need to charge. On heavy usage it can hardly survive past 10am.

I wonder why Samsung has refused to upgrade their battery. They should learn the technology from gionee.
