Help Battery life draining super fast

I have a Samsung galaxy s6 and the battery life has gotten so much worse over the last few weeks. If I am on my phone for an hour doing emails etc, the battery drops about 1% per minute.
I manually stop all running apps both before and after, I've removed most apps aside from Instagram, I've tried battery saver apps and nothing works.
I did need to send it away to be repaired for this issue, it took over a month for them to return my phone and it came back in worse condition so I would rather learn how to fix this myself
Any tips would be appreciated.
