    Your lock screen notification is coming from an app. The battery level shown on the top is reporting Samsung's built-in battery data. I suspect your app is creating a notification that does not update properly.

    That's a new one on me. Do not have that app on my S7 edge (AT&T unfortunately). If it is included, it is very well hidden on my phone.
    Possibly could be bloatware from your carrier. Nevertheless the built-in Samsung battery app in Settings is the one I would rely on. As I said in my earlier post it is possible that that app providing the notification is not updating the notification. Just a guess.

    That notification says 'Tiny Flashlight'. That means it's not the official Samsung flashlight and is just as Snakeyeskm says. It's an app where the battery level is not updating properly.

    I see everybody trust Samsung but not a third party app. To check what level is right (Samsung or Tiny Flashlight) download one more battery app and see the result. Than you will now for sure

    Won't matter. A properly updating third party app would always follow the system reading, because these apps work by just reading the system reading and showing the data on a different interface. That means anything that doesn't follow the system reading (Samsung) is not updating properly.

    chanchan05 is absolutely on the mark, as he generally is. What I suspect is happening is that the app is sending out a notification at a certain point in time and then as time passes and the battery discharges, the notification does not (and I suspect cannot) update and change.
