It has been repeatedly proven that your smartphone’s battery is significantly affected by the display. The longer it’s lit up, the faster the battery’s juice will drain, but who says that you must accept things this way? By default, the Galaxy S7 display will go black after no less than 30 seconds and will lock in 5 seconds, but no one says that you cannot customize the screen timeout settings.
