Conserving battery life is important and in the Galaxy S7 user manual, Samsung provides some "official" tips on keeping your phone alive the longest. Here they are:

Reducing the battery consumption
Your device provides various options that help you conserve battery power.
  • Optimise the device using the Smart manager.
  • When you are not using the device, switch to sleep mode by pressing the Power key.
  • Activate power saving mode.
  • Close unnecessary apps.
  • Deactivate the Bluetooth feature when not in use.
  • Deactivate the Wi-Fi feature when not in use.
  • Deactivate auto-syncing of apps that need to be synced, such as emails.
  • Decrease the backlight time.
  • Decrease the screen brightness.
They also provide an official warning to not use 3rd party chargers or your phone could explode, so next time you see a "Some dude's Galaxy S7 explodes" article on the interwebz... you were warned.
