Not a big issue. always on display can be turned off. If we see over all then, the battery life is fine with Exynos Octa, QHD. It depends on people usage. I have seen iphone, samsung, HTC, Sony users who use power bank, charging battery while driving car, plugging in USB charging while sitting on laptop, but all in all, all phones revolve around the same battery life. I use power bank and i never faced issues with battery life. Moreover, I feel that the battery start to die when we update the phone. To sum up, there is nothing like Apple vs samsung vs Lg vs HTC vs Sony vs Xiaomi etc, all phones are great, so whatever you choose, just go for it. Gud luck frds.. Enjoy :)

How can GSM Arena not consider the MS apps as bloatware? It's exactly that. It can't be uninstalled, likely only deactivated, and Sami only put it on the phone for good old money. I always have to look at the ugly icons.
What is then stamina of meizu pro5, Z5compact, note4, A9 in comparison? It's a shame.
Hope GSMARENA team posts the benchmark results and battery life results for Snapdragon 820 powered variant as well........ I'm hearing that SD820 powered version may have lower battery life.
That said, even the Exynos powered version had lower battery life than I was expecting. Note 5 has a bigger screen and the same 3000 mAH but manages to post better battery life.
Talk time - Note5 - 28:34 , S7 - 22:57
Browsing - Note5 - 10:43 , S7 - 9:34
Video - Note5 - 13:51, S7 - 14:50
Seems battery life is the price you have to pay for the extra performance.
I don't know how the others, but I watch videos more on tablet than on the phone(more like only on tablet). Now I wonder what did they mean better endurance when majority of users use wireless connections, and in this even with bigger battery its same/worse than last year phones with S810/exynos.
AnonD-509761, 12 Mar 2016Agree...iOS is matter of time to became android. If do so then there is no chance to 6s to beat Galaxy S4 in performance. S7 is comparable with iPhone 12.
There is a fail in the battery test. In real life the battery lasts 30% more than S6. If someone had both devices can confirm (or deny) that. And I have to say camera is the greatest in a smartphone hands down.
shame no IR blaster ihave S5 i was tempted buy but i think i stay for now.. its like downgrading to me... and battery u cant replace either and i dont like too much the glas and metal design.. i prefer plastic i dropped my s5 many times no crack on display only on the case which i can live with...
Anonymous, 12 Mar 2016many improvements done, but i will go with xperia z5 premium or xperia x performance. i donot... moreyeah. i will too. samsung despite using sd 820 .marshmallow. amoled has such a low endurage rate. i will better wait for lg g5 . but it doesnot look beatiful. so seeing for x performance or xiaomi mi5.
samsung you will be going down if you did such a bad thing. sony.
Somehow i've got a feeling a snapdragon-powered S7 will be more battery-efficient
I "love" how gsmarena deems a problem the lack of stereo speakers which at best is a refinement, yet thinks that the sealed battery is fair game.
At this point I think reviewers are in on it. Dead or dying batteries is probably the most significant reason for one to buy a new phone yet not a peep is heard about them...
Phones are fast enough for the extant applications, cameras can't get much better due to the small size. So it's mostly irrelevant that those are getting better. We live in an era where you can keep the same phone for 5 years without any adverse effects ...
The *only* reason keeping you from that is the sealed battery. In 2-3 years the battery holds significantly less, causing you to throw away a perfectly usable phone.
Shame on you Samsung and shame on those supporting this tactic...
As I expected camera isn't something ground breaking. Just make a compare S7-V10-MX5 and you'll be surprised.
