    I'm new to android so this might be normal, but android OS and Google play services seem to be draining my battery. I went from 100-90%, it hit 90 right after the picture I attached, in about 90 minutes but I wasn't even on my phone hardly at all. I sent like 3 texts..I have the S7 active which supposedly has a 4000mAh battery, I attached a picture as well. Thank you!

    I suggest you to use GSam Battery Monitor and look for its statistics. I don't think the built-in battery statistic is reliable. See the huge difference between them in my situation:

    Going from 100% to 90% in 90 minutes is normal if Google Play services are running tasks in the background. You will notice a bigger drain during this time...and other times (when the services are not as active) you will notice less battery usage.

    I've already lost another 11% and I even had battery saver on and all ive done is text. It's been like 45 minutes? When I first got this phone like 2 weeks ago it wasn't doing this, it only started like a week ago.

    Yes.
    Go to Settings.
    Click App Manager.
    Click All.
    Scroll down and find Google Play Services...click on it.
    Click Turn Off.
    (This is for my specific device. Instructions for your device may vary slightly depending on which device you have, but that's the gist of it.)
