    Is the battery life on the Note 7 not as long as the iphone 6s plus? This is my first Samsung/android device. Been an iphone user for 5 years and I just recently got the new "safe" Note 7. However, I am a bit disappointed with the battery life. On average, I would get about 9 hours with just normal use, as compared to my iphone that can last me from morning to night, even with heavy usage. In addition, is it normal for the battery to decrease at least 2% within just a few minutes of using it after a full, 100% charge? I find that I am having to give my phone a bit of a charge at least twice a day just to have enough juice to last me from morning to night, which is about 14 hours.

    I heard others stating that i should drain the battery a few times. This will be my second night doing that and I will see if the battery improves.

    Are others experiencing this problem or is that just the way Samsung/android is?

    Other than that, I am still learning the trick and how to about android and the phone itself.

    I get about 31 hours on mine per charge but I am not a heavy user. Mostly I just read on it.

    31 hours!? That is what you see after a 100% charge in your Battery Device Manager settings? With no power saving mode? I've only been getting 9 hours at most, and this was even before I started downloading and installing apps. Now that makes me think i have a defective battery if you are getting 31 hours.

    Battery life on the exchange unit is way better than on the potentially exploding variant and I'm taking 20% better here, the iris scanner seems quicker too.

    Maybe I just got a really good one? It's been off charger since 8:00 AM and now it's 4:37 PM and I am at 94%.

    Ryry808, there's a lot of factors when it comes to battery life. That being said. I use my phone alot throughout the day even listen to music via streaming while at work etc. I've been able to go an entire day just fine. That's with about 4.5 hours screen on time. It all depends on how you have your phone setup.

    RyRy808, I've found in the past that these Li-ion batteries sometimes get better with multiple charge & discharge cycles so give it a chance unless you get close to your return or exchange date then bring it back and get another one.

    Also if you're in a fringe signal area it may be burning juice searching for signal.

    You can't compare iPhone to Android because there's alot more going on with these phones IMO.

    Lot of good those extinguishers will do if the phones do burst into flames. They are right next to the phones!
