Why does the lock screen battery notification differ to the actual battery level in top right ???
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 is the app that came on the phone from factory settings ?!?!?!?!?
sorry my mistake, that was the flash light app
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.
Here you go old boy... Torch - Tiny Flashlight ®
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.
