The Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are two of the most prevalent Android telephones out there, and now, they are getting upgraded to the most recent variant of the Android working framework: Android 7.0 Nougat.
Alongside all the colossal new components and changes, there was one key part of the experience that we needed to test: battery life.
The Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge have generally conveyed a decent battery life, effectively enduring through an entire day notwithstanding when you utilize your telephone a great deal. The S7 Edge with its gigantic 3,600 mAh battery specifically conveyed incredible battery life.
So has battery life changed with Android 7.0 Nougat?
We put all telephones on equivalent grounds in our testing and we twofold checked the outcomes
We tried both the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, hoping to see them perform surprisingly better with Google's most recent redesign and upgrades. Tragically, we saw the inverse: battery life on both telephones has really declined by up to somewhere in the range of 10%. We have run the tests painstakingly and twofold checked for errors, yet the outcomes were predictable.

Instead of getting enhanced battery life, the most recent and most vital overhaul for S7 arrangement really prompts to more awful battery life.
Here is our battery testing strategy: we set all telephone screens to a brilliance level of 200 nits, a level agreeable for indoor utilize. At that point we run a similar test that measures run of the mill cell phone use on all telephones.
We have had the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge in our office for about a year now, so we needed to first check whether the battery life of the telephones has not declined with age. We re-ran all battery tests and found an extremely pitiful decrease because of the battery age and we have represented it in this test.
With this confirmed, we joyfully hit the begin catch in the product upgrade segment and before long, both telephones were running the most recent variant: Android 7.0, part form 3.18.14.
We checked this was not age-related decrease in battery life
So what were the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge Android 7.0 Nougat battery life test comes about?
The Galaxy S7 with the Nougat overhaul scored precisely 6 hours of battery life, while only a day prior to, a similar telephone running Android 6 Marshmallow scored 6 hours and 37 minutes. This is a 9.4% distinction for the pre-upgrade telephone.
The Galaxy S7 Edge with Nougat scored 6 hours and 35 minutes on our battery test, while a similar telephone running on Android 6 Marshmallow scored 7 hours and 10 minutes. There is a 8.1% contrast here again for the Android 6 S7 Edge.
We trust Samsung perceives the issue and finds a settle
The Android 7 Nougat upgrade brings an acknowledged visual redesign of the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge interface. It improves the framework look, it brings speedier and smoother multitasking functionalities, a shiny new and gigantically enhanced camera encounter, however it likewise lessens the battery life of the two telephones.
It's impractical to accuse maturing for the lessened battery life: we've particularly tried the telephones for age-related decrease in battery life and the little there was, was represented. The diminished battery life is along these lines just because of the Android 7.0 Nougat programming upgrade.
As awful as this sounds, what's softened up programming can be settled in programming. We'll be anticipating future upgrades for the gadget to check whether Samsung figures out how to fix a portion of the harm it has done now, and bring back the S7 and S7 Edge battery life we had before the redesign.
