New Samsung Galaxy S7 commercial shows off battery prowess
While Samsung has a new Android handset in the spotlight - the Galaxy Note 7 - the company is obviously far from being done with promoting the Galaxy S7 series. That's why we're not surprised to see a brand new TV commercial that showcases one of the strengths of the S7 and S7 edge: battery life.

The new commercial stars Danny Glover (famous for his roles in the Lethal Weapon film series), who also made an appearance in a previous Galaxy S7 ad back in June. The idea behind the commercial is that the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge provide enough battery life to keep you entertained for a long time - even when you should actually be doing something else: like Danny Glover, who sits next to a bomb that's set to explode in 12 hours. Instead of panicking about the bomb, he uses his Galaxy S7 edge to play games, watch movies and funny videos, take a selfie now and then, and even order food.

As you'll see below, the commercial concludes with a narrator (not Glover) stating that the Galaxy S7 smartphones offer the longest lasting batteries in the Galaxy family. Would you agree?

The battery is good but only if you use the phone because when the screen is off the drain happens, every android phone has bad standby time from android 5.1 on... google managed to f--ck up the OS pretty bad. I expect from a phone when the screen is off not to consume/drain battery at all.... overnight if you leave your android phone unplugged you will be shocked to see that you will lose up 15% of battery... this is unacceptable. I am android phone user since day one but i'm getting fed up with this kind of crap! and I am very pissed because an iphone overnight loses max 2% battery..... (s7 owner)

Heard of DOZE ??? Is it SnapDragon 820 S7 or Exynos S7 as Exynos has far better battery stamina

dude, calm down. I have the exynos model and the standby drain is unacceptable even with doze, the phone should not drain 1% or more, per hour if it's not used! AOD is disabled.

just cause your screen is off doesn't mean stuff isn't running. notfications are still going, You are still connected to the towers, GPS, google services, wifi/bluetooth.

Doze in 6.0 is overrated. unless you root and tinker with it, it's useless other than for overnight standby, but most people charge their phones overnight.

I have a note 5. At night I lose from 2 to 3 % at night. You have something running to lose 15%. Before marshmallow update I would lose 5 to 6% at night.

12 hours? More like 12 minutes! You cannot fool me as I'm a heavy android user. And the fact that the video didn't show a continuous 12 hour recording means. They've skipped the video so it would look like it last 12 hours. Only a blind fool would believe such commercials.

everyone would be thrilled to see a full 12 hours commercial. samsung please do it.

Battery is one of note 7 strenghts!? Are you kidding me? Every samsung owner knows that it is not true. Samsung has one of the most disgusting batteries in the industry. This phone will not live even a day of advanced use. If they would use something like Holger Schubarts selfcharging battery then yes, its a strength. But calling disgusting 3500 mAh of samsung a strong battery should be a joke.
