Uninstall the Oculus and Oculus Rooms software. Oculus has issued a hotfix for the issue, but it'll take some time to update.
Oculus Rooms got stuck in an installation loop, slowing it down, making it hot, and draining the crap out of the battery.
Mine has cooled down, can hold a charge, and is snappy once again.
Paul, 29 Sep 2016Same issue with me after the Sep security update the battery is terrible. I chatted with Samsu... moreHow do you get into safe mode? I just uninstalled the app for occulus and my battery immediately cooled down but still dying very rapidly
I have the same issue. Only got really bad today and the battery is draining within about 3 hours, from 100% to dead.
No other issues seen.
Billiam08, 29 Sep 2016How much did it help with the battery issue? Is everything else still glitching? I cant give an exact number. But this "fix" made this problem (maybe) 50% less worse.
I have been having the same problem with my s7. Since the update, my phone dies after a few hours, even if I haven't been on it. It is taking FOREVER to charge and will not charge unless it is off, otherwise the battery still drains. I'm afraid that my phone is going to overheat and catch fire, because it is extremely hot. This update is awful.
I have the same problem. The phone is warm and the battery drains out completely in 3 hours or so.
Glad to know I wasn't alone with these problems... First the Note, then the washing machine, and now this??? Samsung trying to commit suicide?
Seems like the problem is related to the Oculus update. See https://www.reddit.com/r/GalaxyS7/comments/55280e/overheating_and_draining_battery/

Going into safe mode fixes everything. That might be the way to go untill Samsung figures out what is going on
I have read the comments and I too am having every issue stated below. My phone drains within hours, lagging, not getting emails or messages. Nothing helps. I don't want to reset my phone but I may have to.
Hi guys. I had the same problem after the last update, My phone just turn into shit, lagging, super fast battery draining... After some research I found a temporary fix (this definitely improved my phone [not 100%]).
- Just logout from the new Samsung Cloud (since i dont find how to disable this service).
-You can find Samsung Cloud at: Configurations>Samsung Cloud (Yellow S Icon).
Then just restart your phone.
-If you need to turn it on again, just follow the same steps, and login with your account.
s7 edge here after update same symptoms cpu used causing keyboard lag, battery drain et hot unit.
Same problem here... It is running slooooow, and It is hot. I felt it in my pocket and I have nothing running on it. Turned all my background apps that arent system off. Battery died in 3 hours. The text is delayed also. I am about 5 characters ahead when I am typing. Samsung is playing stupid. They know, they wont admit to it though. Not a happy camper...
After the last update, it uses much faster battery and it has been very slow
found this thread because... i updated a couple days ago, and now today for the first time (why didnt it happen before??) phone is hot and battery draining fast. "battery" section says Android System is at the top of the list in terms of battery useage (30%) then Google App (14%) then Android OS (12%)...
I'm on an S7 edge verizon
Samsung 7edge. Battery drained from 100 to 10 in several hours. Haven't even used it. Phone really hot. Slow! Won't send msg. This is not fair. The phone forces you to install update yet this is what we're left with. Their had better be a solution!
What a Hell!
Same for me here. My phone bacame a shitphone. Now even typing is now freezing/lagging.
These are the updates:
August 2016 Android Security Patches
SMS over WiFi
Additional SOS message fixes
