    Just went through my app manager to look at every app. Things like "Samsung Gear VR Service".. "Knox", and "Help", all show 29% battery usage since last charge. None can be disabled, however. I don't use them, as far as I know. Anything I can do about this?

    Get Package Disabler Pro from the Google Play Store.
    Just disable the offending apps, Do Not Uninstall any of them.....

    Got the same tip from KOLIO. Great app with no root required.

    Doesn't look any easier or more difficult to use,from the examples given.
    If your app has any extras that Package Disabler Pro lacks,I'd be glad to give it a shot.
    Otherwise,I've already purchased Package Disabler Pro (last year) ........................

    And the, ".........................", did read, "and if I'm too tight fisted to buy ironass a drink, I'm certainly not buying another app!"

    I've tried both and, much to my surprise, the one you recommend didn't work on my S7 Edge; instead, package disabler pro works like a charm. I find that kind of weird given the fact that, supposedly, your suggestion is specifically designed for Sammy phones...
