    App drawer can only place 62 lines of app icons when each line places 5 icons. Can't find my newly installed apps in app drawer any more.

    7 hours is not bad. SOT depends on the usage. If you are getting 7 hours SOT with your fav apps installed and the battery lasts for one day or more, then its good.

    I dont play games in mobile. I only use it for audio/video chats, listen to music, browse fb, take pics and check emails and other social media like instagram and twitter.
    I also use android pay for my payments except in TFL.

    I have turned on auto brightness
    I use dark theme
    I switch on NFC, location, wifi and mobile data only when required.
    I have turned on aggressive doze mode
    I have turned on app auto-launch
    I delete the cache if it goes higher than 500 mb
    I have disabled Google App. I think its more useful for google to know more about us than help us. But this is just my opinion.
    I have turned off automatic backup
    I dont use any battery saving apps
    I also dont use battery saver mode.

    At the beginning, I used to get around 10 hours of SOT in 4.0.2 and then it gradually went up after a few charging cycles.

    also mine is rooted so I use greenify to block background apps and 90% of the day I'm on wifi, so no idea why mine has 3h less sot...I'll try this two things and see if they have such a huge impact

    If you thing the OP3 is good, try the 3T, 400 more mAH battery, more powerful processer and 16mp front facing camera. Should fully trump the S7.

    Not actually had a Samsung phone but used my sister's one while visiting my mum in hospital just to see what it was like. Hated it, the phone is great but what's on it is a nightmare, full of junk and added menus. All the android phones is used have been stock or near stock android which I prefer. The OnePlus 3T is the first to have added stuff and it's brilliant, subtle differences that are worth having, menus you can navigate through and not get lost.

    Cool. Oneplus 3T is definitely the best android smartphone in the current market.

    Don't wanna sound like a total dumbass but how is the Gaming Experience on the 3T compared to S7? I've heard that playing games (Asphalt 8, Real Racing) on the Edge gives a more 3D-Like Experience!

    Different users have different mobile usage, apps and settings. I am definitely getting more than 10 hours SOT consistently and twice it was more than 11 hours.

    The Note 7, even if no longer in the market, and apart from the incident, still is the best smartphone ever made. A true compendium of the best software and mobile technologies. The 3T, better than a Note 7, or a GS7E? Only in the price, period. Imo, even the GS7 is better than the 3T. Let´s be real here.
