Hearing that the Samsung Galaxy S7 was somehow managed to stay alive 17 straight hours while playing video at full brightness was as bit hard to believe, but the latest report from Eldar Murtazin (who delivered the aforementioned expectations) brings things back in line with reality.
According to him, the Samsung Galaxy S7 — which has a 3,000mAh battery — is able to go a full 2 days with regular usage at 75% of brightness. It appears his screen-on time during the usage was about 4 and a half hours, which may or may not be in line with your idea of “regular.”
Still, it should be a nice improvement over the Samsung Galaxy S6 thanks to its increased battery and optimized hardware. And if Samsung has correctly implemented Android 6.0 Marshmallow’s doze mode, it’ll be even better.
