Nougat Update Could Reduce Your Galaxy S7 Or S7 Edge Battery Life
Now that the Android Nougat update has already rolled out to many devices, users are starting to see how much their phones' system have changed with the new Android version. While the Android team's goal is to bring in improvements, it's quite inevitable to get some disadvantages as well. According to recent reports, the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge have seen a decline in battery life once upgraded to Android Nougat.
Samsung Galaxy S7 And S7 Edge's Battery Life On Android Nougat
As per IB Times, there are users who have reported to have seen a drop in battery life when they updated their Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge to Nougat. Phone Arena also investigated the matter and the tech blog has confirmed that there is indeed a battery life decline with the S7 and S7 Edge's Nougat update. It was said that when the Galaxy phones were updated, a 10 percent drop in battery life was spotted.
According to the test performed, the Marshmallow system on the S7 allowed for up to 397 minutes of usage while the Nougat system only reached 360 minutes. The S7 Edge, on the other hand, went from 403 minutes on Marshmallow to 395 minutes on Nougat. With that said, it's safe to assume that the new update has brought in new features that could have affected the phones' battery lives. However, since this is simply a software-related issue, a software fixing update may be able to resolve this as well.

The change in the "Close All" button also makes its appearance a little more mature, which is a good thing as well.
