The 7 is 4 generations out of date and 5 years old, so most of them are running on worn batteries and useless water resistance that’s no longer effective - 3-4 hours is kind of low but I’m also not surprised since the phone is so old. It’s time for a new battery if you’re still happy with the phone. I would expect ~12-14 hours of heavy use even on an old phone like that; 3-4 is a laptop and that’s too far gone.

Do you have the 7 OR 7 Plus? I’m migrating this to Answers, so this needs to be known so it can be added or you need to do it and I will need to finalize this answer. [https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/iPhone+7+Battery+Replacement/67528|Refer to this guide] to change the battery.
