It is due to the high-graphics games my wife has been recently playing. The first entry you see was 7.5 hours SOT of mainly Chrome, and about 25% Youtube on wifi, over a span of 15 hours.
With a battery monitor, I notice the CPU battery use drops whenever it's just browsing or low apps are used. That's the octa-core lowering to the less frequency 4-cores to save battery. Also, the less you use, the longer the battery projection will be. There is no fixed formula to all of this. The average results at the bottom can give a pretty good idea of the daily use, and help predict your expected use time.
The fact that she uses less LTE, and more of wifi is another factor. Sometimes she forgets to turn off the game in the background, or she has not killed the wifi while out.
I can tell you that I have a different use pattern, and that I use 6 hours average SOT (compared to just 4 hours) over the last 90 cycles of my Note 3 with extended 10000 mAh battery. It just means that with no wories about battery, that is the true usage time, and I consume an average 2.5GB (ranging from >1GB to

You should memorise the fingerprint in the position you are normally put your finger. It is the shape of button fault and the switch presence. The round shape on Apple and the lack of switch pushbutton used on HTC is better.

From your reply I can easily say you never used that phone. It was one of the most underrated phone because it had 620+ processor.
Keeping the "CPU performance" and "reae camera" apart, S7 edge can't really bring lot of surprises if you had one. I am using my 3rd S7 edge whcih I got 3 days back, performance is good.
However, my biggest complain is on the fingerprint sensor. Using all the the 3 phones, I came to a conclusion that it is a toy feature in S7 edge (let me know if you dont agree). Out of 10 tries, 6 times it doesn't work however I register my finger.
Lately discovered that if I register single finger, accuracy is more (stupid). On my A9 it was 10/10 times accurate, in any angle I try. (It is one of the basic area where Sammy must have performed. It is not only bad for Samsung, but also for Android, as most people after switching to apple say, android is worst becasue nothing works perfect- they have a point).
battery - A9 battery is not I get constantly 4hours SOT with normal usage and you can check XDA forum for all screenshots. This new S7 edge is finally something better than I ahd before, goes until 7PM with 3.2hours SOT. Maybe as I use for a week, it will improve. However, the complain is on charging time. It takes around 2+ hours for full charge against A9 1+ hours.
I have no intention to compare SD 820 phone to SD620 phone, but definitely all other factors apart from CPU and camera, including RAM management are comparable.
techmad, 13 Jun 2016Has anyone from TMobile received their June Update yet?I hav G935 FD, Still waiting June SU, its on April. Sammy has intrigue policy, S6 edge ad N5 hav already received, latest flagship is far behind. Nonsense!

To fix the phone, the screen costs more than 50% of the device's price. I always put a case on the phone to protect it.
