New battery still draining


I put a new battery in a galaxy S7 as it was using a full charge in 6-8 hours.

Put the new battery in charged it all last night and in 4 hours it's drained 40-50%.

Any ideas what I can do?

This sounds like a settings issue not a hardware issue.


6-8 hours is pretty good. You sure it’s not normal


I would definitely try backing the phone up first then doing a factory reset to see if it fixes the issue.

Note that battery drain can be caused by certain installed apps too.

Hi @jaymie1989 ,

Do you have GPS, WiFi enabled?

If not necessary disable them in settings as they are a big drain on power.
