GSMArena, I expected better from you, lol.
install the UK Rom that i sent it i promise your battery will improve ...
but as i told u before and after flashing wipe your device
i bought my s 7 edge 10 months ago so its not important
the s 7 edg'e buttery is huge and i dont think it deteriorates after 10 months ...
Roy, 06 Feb 2017Hi I hope you still remember on some other thread I shared my experience with note 7 and lo... moreYeah Roy, regarding the resolution change, I asked my friends for their opinion and even got the opportunity to experience it myself. And yeah, you were indeed right all along. Thanks Roy! :D
While this all may be true and gives me hesitation about installing N, fact is the devices and the batteries are approaching 1 yr old. Another fact is these are balls to the wall tests, all go no quit. The doze mode in Android 7.0 will offset this in day to day usage. My previous Nexus 6 Motorola phone greatly improved with N developer preview due to the improved Doze mode. That being said, if the Pixel 2 is water resistant and has wireless charging I'm upgrading as soon as possible. Wife has the Pixel XL 128 GB and the phone is buttah!! Getting sick of slow updates (Thanks phone carriers 😉) here in the US.
Are they comparing the results to results from a year ago on a brand new battery, or did they do the marshmallow tests right before they upgraded? If the marshmallow tests were done a year ago on a new device and the nougat ones on a 1-year old battery, that is not a fair comparison.

Would be interesting to see how the new iOS on the iPhone 7 vs Nougat on S7 Edge compare now, and on all benchmarks
Henry, 06 Feb 2017To Upgrade via odin.... where to download the Official ROM from? Sammobile the only site around ?yes sammobile is one of the best ones
and also depends on your location, you can find direct links provided by others ...
however this is the UK rom that many people tested as well as I upgraded
fortunately there is no bug
and this is the (united arab emirate)
before flashing, read all instructions (xda forum is recommended)
There is a significant drop in battery life, especially if you let notifications in the aod.. And the new notifications drop menu isn't that great either.. Maybe i need to restore the device like we do with iphones when all else fails?
I have an Exynos S7 Edge, and I can testify that, in certain circumstances, battery life can be worse with Nougat, but only when using the stock browser. But battery life with Always-On-Display is significantly better, and overall it can be better than Marshmallow if you don't use the stock browser which is very fast, but very energy consuming.
Is this test conducted on a brand new phone or the same handsets the original tests were conducted with as battery degradation would explain the drops
The stupid is high in the comments section today. This is an endurance test, not a flapping 'standby' test. Take off the google/samsung fanboy glasses for a second
TW always was crap and always will be. Of what use is 6gb of RAM, the latest SoC, when the software isn't optimized and all that power can't be used for anything else, than benchmarks. And ignorant sheeple continue to only care for numbers and specs, who cares about RL performance.
geordie81, 06 Feb 2017One thing clearly is conirmed....amoled draws such little power from the processor and battery... moreThat's not the issue here. A display having more pixels to light up means more power draw. What is changing here is how many pixels are rendered by the processor, and then scaled to the FIXED amount of physical sub-pixels. Changing the render resolution only reduces the power used by the GPU, not the screen. For games/3d benchmarks this could increase battery life a lot. For every day use it will not as the GPU is not stressed rendering simple 2D content in a higher resolution. The sub-pixels lighting up to make the screen work are a hardware thing so they are static.
So the people complaining about too high of a resolution still have a point and actually lighting up a high res screen (not processing what is displayed on them but the physical act of having it light up) is the biggest power drain on modern devices.
What a crap, people just update for improving the experience and what they have is less battery life.
Sorry GSMArena, but this test seems very flawed.
You used an old battery!
You can't just update an almost a year old, used device, and expect the battery to perform like it was during the first test!
