    The app Greenify has an Aggressive Doze (experimental) setting that seems to be working great. Overnight my Galaxy S7 edge lost only 7% of battery going went from 100% charged state to 93% this morning. See my Doze activity through the night below.

    I use Greenify as well, but I use wireless charging over night, because I record a nightly radio program on TuneIn Radio.

    When I wake up, my radio program is recorded and I have a fully charged battery. [emoji4]

    Back to Greenify..it's hard to tell if if actually works or not on my S7E, I just installed it has a habit.

    I jus

    I'm now wondering how you set up your phone. 7-8% is the normal battery loss I have overnight during sleep. No greenify. I do have GreenPower but that's just to toggle sync and wifi.

    Because I travel a lot, I keep Bluetooth and location on all the time. Not only for directions etc., but also as a security measure (Cerberus etc). Normally, with these on, my overnight loss is closer to 10 – 11%.

    See above, it's all relative my friend.– So my loss is Bigger than yours – I guess size matters

    I have location and internet almost always turned on. I also have Cerberus installed. And I have autobackups running. Are you using a SnapDragon version?

    Unfortunately I do have the snapdragon with its inherent limitations. Limitations that are frequently rubbed in my face by Mr. ironass Whole.

    Ironass's last name is Whole, and due to his frequent insults, I have decided to refer to him in a more formal manner as Mr. ironass Whole.

    His words are true though. SnapDragon + Carrier bloat = worse battery. I'm not in the US and my carrier's only modifications that I can see is the splash screen on turning on. Even the carrier apps aren't installed, except for one (that allows you to check status, and request for services and pay for them). The others are just listed in a card that says look for them on the Play Store. I hear carrier bloat on US carriers have massive battery drain for some reason.

    You're absolutely right. (Unfortunately Mr. Whole is also always right). Even though I have disabled all the bloatware packages the difference in battery life is minimal.

    I'm sorry Snakeyeskm

    Please accept this U.S. Galaxy S7 accessory to help your Snapdragon phone along...

    [​IMG]

    Seriously though, there has always been a gulf between the stock Samsung international and global models and the heavily branded U.S. carrier minority variants. Particularly, in the past, with AT&T and Verizon who specialise in removing stock Samsung system apps such as, for instance, Phone, Messenger, etc; and replacing them with their own ersatz versions in an attempt to form their own eco system. Not to mention adding extra system apps, such as, for example, in the case of AT&T...

    • AT&T Locker: Cloud storage from AT&T.
    • AT&T Protect Plus: Cloud backups, device locator and "Pro Tech support."
    • Device Help: Essentially a wrapper for the att.com help pages
    • DirecTV: AT&T purchased satellite TV company DirecTV in 2015, and now their app is right here for you
    • Drive Mode: Sets auto-replies to texts and calls straight to voicemail when moving faster than 25 mph
    • myAT&T: Access your AT&T account
    • Plenti: A rewards program in conjunction with Exxon, Macy's Hulu, and others
    • Smart Limits: Parental controls on times, calls, data, and more
    • Usage Manager: Track data usage by app
    • Visual Voicemail: View your voicemails with your eyeballs
    Whilst Samsung rigorously check out and test all their own apps, I wonder who checks the carrier minority variant add-on's, modifications and replacements?

    As I mentioned earlier, there has always been a gulf between Samsung's stock firmware and the U.S. carrier minority variants, however, with the release of the S7/Edge I think it has got a whole lot bigger and more self evident as 194 countries are now on one model and 2, U.S. and China, are on another because of their fragmented networks that include CDMA.

    This may not be a bad thing in the long run as more U.S. users on their GSM networks are opting for the stock Samsung, unbranded, Global model with the faster, more battery friendly, Exynos 8890 chip which does not have a locked bootloader and is rootable. Who knows, if U.S. carriers start losing sales, they might think twice about their bootloaders and bloatware. We also may see on, say, the Galaxy S8, the U.S. GSM carriers begin to demand the same spec's as the Global model and leave the Qualcomm chips or whatever, to the CDMA carriers. If the CDMA carriers then start losing out to their GSM rivals, we could even see them switching over to the global, GSM, standard on their networks. (OK, the last bit is fanciful on my part... but we can dream).

    It was EarlyMon on these forums, that mentioned that Ma Bell, as it was known, was at one time, the telephone network that all other telephone networks worldwide, aspired to be like. Sadly, that is no longer the case.

    As usual, loved the content, but could have done without the JPEG (Notwithstanding the fact that it is hysterically funny). Have scheduled appointment with the local shrink and and sanitation chief to discuss the emotional trauma associated with unwarranted public insults. Hope to send you their respective bills.

    When you have Cerberus installed you can turn on gps remotely if needed. That way you don't always need it on. Only when you need it.
