    For those experiencing this problem in Nougat 4.0.2/7.0.1, there is a solution. Go to Settings/Apps/Google Play Services and dissable Modify System Settings. It work for me.

    Radio Active bug will disappear from cellular data network.
    Good luck!

    Google Services are bunched together under one heading "Google Play Services". What does this mean? Here are some of the things that this includes followed by simple ways to make Google play services use less of your battery power.
    • Account Manager (Google): Little information is available on exactly what this service does, but it seems to handle syncing for Google account data, including email and other related things.
    • Services Framework [Google]: Google Services Framework handles a variety of other communications with Google, including cloud messaging.
    • Contacts Sync {Google}: Google Contacts Sync syncs your Android contacts back and forth with your Google account’s contacts — you can find these in Gmail or at google.com/contacts. The sync is two-way so that you can modify a contact on your Android device or the web, and your changes will appear in both places.
    • Google Backup Transport: This service allows Android apps to back up their data onto Google’s servers. When you perform a factory reset on an Android device or set up a new one, your app’s data can be restored.
    • Google Play Services: Google Play Services is a layer of services Android apps can use. This includes location services, which is the most significant battery drain here. The “Google Play Services” package can be updated on-the-fly without an operating system update

    • For more battery life, I stoped Calendar and Google Fit sync in Accounts and I stopped Location. Now I have 63% from battery with 3h SOT.

    Have you only been having issues after the system update?

    For better battery backup, go to Settings/Backup and Reset - do a data backup and then disable it.
    When enabled, this setting backs up all the device data and app data periodically into your configured account. This data may be anything like the Wi-Fi passwords, call history, photos, text messages, app settings & files, etc. So if you are ready to barter this with the battery life, turning it off will be the right thing to do.

    But turning it off will delete every file stored on the servers as described.
