Galaxy S7 will not charge after the latest update

Since the last update my phone no longer charges. I have tried multiple wires and chargers. It will charge only on a fast charger and then only very slowly and only if I am not using it. The battery life is down to about 6 hours and even less if I use it for anything. When it is plugged in and I am using it I can see the charge dropping off. I have tried restarting it and cleared the catch but neither seem to be working. I have not installed any new apps since the update. When I look at the battery usage it says that everything is fine. My phone has become almost useless to me.


Edit: It will not charge even if the power is off.
