Same here - update drains the battery in half the time and it takes a lot longer to charge with my S7. Highly disappointed in Samsungs' flaky updates. This is a consistent problem and I had the same problem with my S5 before I upgraded to the S7. Phone hardware is great but the software updates are like rolling the dice with battery life.
I updated Sat the 25th and by Sunday the 26 night, I had no screen at times, won't charge and the screen flashes like a strobe light. It will not charge. I feel like every time I update, the I mysteriously have to get a new phone within a week. My S5 fingerprint security locked me out when I updated. My S6 was forever slow after update and now this with my S7. Unhappy customer

They gave her a loaner phone for now. The update messed up both pur s7 and s7 edge
The always on display, before the update used to display the clock only but after the update the entire screen is powered on, tho with very less brightness ( visible at night / dark room), causing battery drain & heated screen.
Turn off always on from "settings> display> always on".
Mr. E, 26 Nov 2016I'm curious about the update, can everyone who has updated their phones, post what their phone... moreUpdated earlier this month to G935TUTU4APK1 on T-Mobile (Snapdragon). ZERO problems. It actually resolved battery drain issue that I was plagued by from the update prior.
I'm curious about the update, can everyone who has updated their phones, post what their phone's processors are? What I'm getting at is if the troubles are specific to the Snapdragon or Exynos processors? It would be greatly appreciated by you kind folks, to see if it's bad software code, or hardware based.
I've trouble when unlock with my left finger before update but fingerprint more responsive right now

carphone ware house appears to have let me down in many ways.
1.never discussed about tariff - paying high tarrif.
2.another firm offerded a substantial voucher but car phone offered smart car mount with voice-controlled app,- even the very nice and very helpful main technical support member of staff at the local branch could not fit it on my car.
3.i am getting advertisement comming through car phone ware house for black friday but with the recent exploding fire risk should not car phone ware house remain loyal to customers and warn not to downlord latest software which appears to cause so many disappointments to samsung customers.
can a samaritan from car phone ware house come forward and publicly guide us,customers please.
