Put the phone in Airplane Mode (turns all radios off) and then turn WiFi on. It’s a pull-down and two taps on my S7.

I was recently working in Illinois farm country that had WiFi. This method was like ‘night and day’ as far as the battery life was concerned. Instead of losing 10 to 15% of battery-life per hour, I could go through the work day at about 20%…(streaming music took a bit more, still lost less than half).

This works, but a couple of disadvantages compared to Toggle Cell:

  1. It’s a manual process. TG was automatic.
  2. If your phone has FM radio, airplane mode turns that off, and no easy way to turn it back on. I have a Moto E (on KitKat, so TG still works) and FM radio uses very little power compared to WiFi streaming the same station.
