Single Status Update
I got the Galaxy S7 today. Bestbuy has a good deal this weekend. $49 with 2 year contract with Verizon and free wireless charger. So far I'm impressed with the quality of the phone over my old S4. I haven't tried the wireless charger yet. I doubt I'll use it much and I have a feeling it won't work correctly with the otter box case I'm using.

Meh, I'm on Verizon's new plan and I absolutely love it. Overall I pay $5 more a month over what I was originally paying on the old model but my plan is a lot cheaper. Honestly you don't really notice the extra money you're paying for your phone on this options (or at least I don't). If I took all the bells and whistles off my account (like Ringback tones) I'd actually be paying less then I was prior to my switch.
I don't think I could ever go back to a normal Galaxy anymore (not to say I don't like what they've done with the S7's), I love my Note 4 so much I'll probably end up getting the newest iteration of it next year when my plan comes do.
I've honestly never had a problem with battery life on my phones. My phone will last at least 3 days before it needs to be charged with constant use (as long as I'm not playing games constantly on my phone), I just charge it daily by default (from my old Droid days, that thing had atrocious battery life and needed to be charged daily even with basic use). Hell my old S4's battery still works like a champ and holds a charge damn well (then again I'm anal, I kill all unnecessary apps/tasks when it's not in use), I think that thing still holds a charge for 3-4 days before needing to be recharged (can't say, it's been turned off and placed in it's box for the last few months).
I must watch to much YouTube on my phones because my galaxy s4 would need to be charged almost twice a day for the last year. If I didn't use the phone hardly at all out would still need to be charged at least once a day. You really must have lucked out with some good batteries and great signal. Whenever I'd be at work my signal strength was so bad I swear my phone would rip thru it's battery. I'd have to turn data off all the time and still have to charge it at my desk. And I used a battery saving app to.
I forgot the name of the battery saving app I was using on my old phone but I noticed avast made one so I've been using it. But it looks like I have to manually kill apps with it. Thats extremely inefficient to me. What battery saving app do you use?
I haven't had a phone that didn't need to be charged daily since I had a Sony Ericsson Walkman phone.
