    I had the same suspicion as well... I disabled a lot of useless stuff on my Note 3 and Note 5 and battery life remain terrible.

    I can't imagine an iPhone with 3500 mah, it'd be a beast.
    Just goes to show you how incredible iOS optimizes the battery and software. iPhone 7 plus has a 2900mah battery and I get better battery life than any android phone I've used, including the pixel XL that gave me the best battery life on an Android device. Even the pixel XL has 3450mah battery and the 7 plus just crushes it. iOS just crushes android in the battery department and always will.

    Eh my battery life is OK, it's no where near as good as my note 5, I find myself having to charge 2x a day on my 7+. Was on my note 5 with nougat and almost didn't come back LOL...I've gotten my note 5 to last 6 days on standby ❤️️my iPhone can't even do 3 . Nougat seemed to have given me better battery life. Prior I could get 7-10hrs SOT with my note 5 now it's a minimum 9-13 hours. I literally took my note 5 off at 7 am and at 1 am I still had 30% battery life left. Idk I'm just lucky with my android devices. Never had one with crap battery life, my IPhones have always been OK.

    That is very crazy because many people on here said the note 5 had the worst battery life ever! I would say luck is a good word to use.

    How if it has a smaller battery and same OS?
    Snapdragon 835 (in the S8s) is up to 40% more power efficient than SD 820 in the S7 edge.

    For me, ever since I updated to iOS 10.3.3 my 7plus battery life has been quite a bit worse. Noticeably worse and this isn't normal.

    I generally get 9-12 hours SoT (aka usage in battery stats), I'm always shocked by how incredible this device is and how well optimized it performs

    I'd say maybe 15-20%. Most reviews will say the same. It definitely is better than the 7 plus. That's for sure.
    I’d agree with this... I can get a lot of juice out of the S8+

    Same here. Even did a full wipe and set it up as new. Same battery issues. Standby seems fine, but using it drains the battery faster than ever before.

    My battery life is solid on my 7 plus but wish it was as good as my s8+.
    I have to agree with Garz. This Is how it's been for me as well between my IP7+ and my GS8+

    Yep, exactly what I did. I'm almost tempted to revert back to iOS 10.3.2 since apple is still signing it.

    I've got no issues with my battery after latest iOS update, sucks to hear some of you are impacted. I never used an S8/+ for personal use so I can't compare but I do read on the forums overall it's great for battery life.
