Disable Or Manage Background Sync
There are instances when apps keep on running in the background even when not in use. What you need to do is to disable these apps which can be done by going to the Quick Settings and swiping down and Tap on Sync to disable it. Another way is to go to Settings > Accounts and disable sync for apps you don’t need. You may notice that you now have extra battery life on your LG G7 once you disable Facebook background sync
Disable LTE, Location, Bluetooth
Having your Internet connection turned on all the time with Bluetooth and location tracking on your device activated as well can cause a major power drain on battery life. There are times that you need to turn off these when you don’t need them. If you really need your location service to be on all the time, you can place your phone on power saving mode. When you need to use GPS for Navigation this is the only time your device will power up and use up your battery. Bluetooth not being used is another power drainer and it should be disabled as well when not in use.
Enable the LG G7 Power-Saving Mode
This feature has many amazing options to help fix the quick battery drain issue. You can choose an option to turn off background data and to limit the smartphone’s performance. GPS can be disabled, backlit keys turned off, and the screen frame rate can be lowered as well. You have the option to enable this mode manually or have your device do it automatically.
If your Wi-Fi is enabled the whole day it can cause a strain on your battery life.

Replace TouchWiz Launcher
