Samsung Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge Battery Life Review

Battery is the one of the biggest upgrades or major improvement by Samsung you can say in Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. They added 40% bigger battery in Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge.

Here is the full review of Samsung Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge Battery Life

First I tested some Common Tasks like, WiFi browsing and Video PlayBack, I found below results.

» WiFi Browsing Test : First I charged the phone till the 100% and ran my custom WiFi browsing test tool until 0%. Than recharged the phone again to the 10% and recorded below numbers.

Both phones proves better in this test, recording an average screen on time of 6 hours and 48 minutes, versus 6 hours and 30 minutes on the Snapdragon model.

Galaxy Note 5 Scored High by : 9 Hours 32 Minutes.

Video PlayBack Test : Again I tested both phones from Full to empty battery by playing 5 minite's video in Loop. I noticed that, during the test, each device was put in aeroplane mode to prevent any syncing or connections preventing the video from playing. I got below numbers from this test.

  • Exynos S7 : 911 Minutes
  • Snapdragon S7 : 712 Minutes
  • Galaxy Note 5 : 652 Minutes
  • Nexus 6P : 417 Minutes

We found both phones excelled in Video PlayBack test. Snapdragon beat, Galaxy Note 5 and Nexus 6P with an average battery life. But Exynos S7 run till 15 Hours and 11 minutes.

Standby Test : It's final test to find the maximum standby battery life. Again We charged all smartphones to the 100%, Turned on the WiFi and started all apps syncing data and notifications. After the 24 hours, we measured the battery status and found below numbers.

  • EXYNOS S7 : 242 Hours
  • Snapdragon - S7 : 226 Hours
  • Galaxy Note 5 : 185 Hours
  • Nexus 6P : 218 Hours
We noticed that Samsung Galaxy Note 5 have lower potential standby time than the other three phones. Here is the reason we found for that is,  "At the time of testing, it was running the Lollipop OS and didn’t have the benefit of Doze Mode on Marshmallow like the other three handsets."

Wrap UP :

We found that Exynos handset offer better battery life than Snapdragon. We found noticeable difference between the two handsets. The data also shows that the Galaxy S7 battery life is vastly improved over the Galaxy Note 5, with both versions of the S7 outscoring Samsung’s phablet king in two out of the three tests. The last is that Doze mode definitely makes a difference to the standby offered by a handset – as our final test shows – and as noted in our Galaxy S6 Marshmallow hands on, Marshmallow OS definitely improves the overall battery life of a handset.
