Was very disappointed with my 7 Plus Battery so i decided to downgrade to 10.0.1 and setting up as a new device - but it didn´t really help.
Now 3 days later I see that the Settings "app" causes a lot of background activity and i have no idea what this could be.

Don't get obsessed with the numbers. That 7% is mostly foreground activity, most likely. The fact that it was "running" (a misnomer) in the background for 1.4hrs tells you it's not using much battery or system resources.

My suggestion: stop changing things, stop checking things, and stop restoring. Use your phone normally for a week and see how it's behaving then.

Ok, then you obviously have an issue. If you're losing 10% overnight NOT in airplane mode, you'd have an issue.

STEP 1 was/is setting up as new bc of rogue apps/settings from a restore.
STEP 2 was/is talking to Apple, as this isn't normal. They will take care of you.

apple doesn´t help. They did the system test and everything is fine. After setting the phone up as new it worked for two days.
The "Using Time" is fine. The problem is the standby time and i´m pretty sure it is the background activity of the settings.

If you say so.
