Galaxy Tab S2 drains battery after recent update

Re: Galaxy Tab S2 drains battery after recent update

I just did a search to see if I was the only one having this issue.  The battery went from 92% to 24% overnight with all apps closed and an extremely strong 5G WiFi signal throughout my home.  I have tried uninstalling apps, deleting any content on the tablet.  I even turned the tablet off overnight last night and it still dropped from 89% to 82% with the unit POWERED DOWN COMPLETELY!  I never lost that kind of power prior to this with the unit on and apps still running.

 

I don't know what has happened, but I can no longer rely on my tablet to run long enough for a cross country plane flight without absolutely needing a fully charged mega charger to be the supplemental power supply.  OK for a plane flight, not ok for everyday use.  Can someone please explain what's happened to the great battery life that my tablet once had?

Tried this. No change. Since Nougat update, I can put my Tab S2 to sleep, come back in an hour, and it's almost dead. Background stuff, notifications, etc all turned off. HELP!!!!!!

Same here - I reset the tablet - changed the Battery myself - and it still goes from 100 to zero in 14 to 16 hours with no on screen use.

 

Thought it was me - guess not.  Betting we NEVER see an update again from Samsung

My Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 32gb battery usage is terrible.  Won't last a day.  I'm now using it plugged in most of the time.

Same problem here.

 

It was fine with Marshmallow. Long battery life. Easily 3-4 days with active use. Now, I cannot make it through 24 hours with similar use. If I forget to charge it one night, the next morning, the device is out of battery. I might just ebay this off and get an Asus (gasp!).

I have the same problem with my galaxy tab s2.

 

Everything switched off and still the battery goes down from 100% to zero in a single day.

The problem started last week or so.

 

I used to charge my Galaxy tab S2 about once a week and now without any applications running, Wifi turned of and no activity what so, my Galaxy tab S2 goes from 100 to zero in about 14 hours.

 

Crazy !

Have you all tried a factory reset since the update?
