I have it for 1 or 2 weeks from TMO, it's 7.0, I definitely see a decrease in battery life, not sure what it is. I have the edge.

Very disappointed with the battery life. Doesn't last half the day. I do use my phone moderately/heavy but hardly stream any videos and was expecting an upgrade from my old phone.

secure folder does what?
In short it's a secured container -protected by Samsung Knox - where you can have apps , one popular use from it to have what's app in secure folder with a different phone number

I saw a change to better in my battery life after reducing the amount of Google accounts I have signed into my S7, I only need all the Google stuff for 2 accounts, the others 6(...) I need only the email,
For be it made a big change in my battery life

So just installed the new update Thursday. Didn't really have time to play with it cuz of shabbos and purim. Besides for the large drain in battery life I now have a problem with charging.

A) The phone now does not always recognize the they charger is plugged in. I have to move the wire around and put it in a certain position to make sure it charges. This was not the case before the update.

B) When I plug in my fast charger it now only charges at a slow speed. I checked that my fast charger toggle under battery in settings is on. While it is in the fast charge position, when I plug in my fast charger the toggle automatically switches to off. I can't seem to change it to stay at fast charge.

Anyone else having these issue?

Anyone else feel like the battery drains much quicker on the new update? I'm definitely having that happen to me.
