    Default Galaxy S5 Battery Life seems IMPRESSIVE! (Up to 12 hrs)

    Now I know it dependa and varies on the user, and I'm sure the testers of the phone probably incorporated "Power Saving Mode" with this test, but nevertheless its still impressive I think

S5 test revealed an interesting point - the device worked for about 12 hours and 40 minutes. Unfortunately, while playing one time he went to the main menu, so I had to start playing again - but the impact of this incident is minimal, it can be ignored, since by the time of the screen shows how long the cool video

    That's like 6 hours of screen time.....I was doing that with my S4 on LTE. Easy.

    That would be amazing if true. I only get about 3.5 hours of screen on time on my nexus 5.

    I see the confusion people are having and ill try to explain what those two pictures actually mean.

    The first image is showing the battery life under regular use, it is not related to the second image in anyway, they are completely seperate.

    The image showing 12 hours of screen time was a full brightness video playback test of the S5 and it did exceptionally well in that regard.
    In case you dont remember, Samsung claimed 12 hours of HD video playback and 10 hours of LTE web browsing in there keynote event. The S5 proved one of those claims but the web browsing endurance has yet to be tested.

    Here is the battery test done by Eldar Murtazin where he got 12 hours of video play backhttps://mobile.twitter.com/eldarmurt...=eldarmurtazin

    There is no formula for computing battery screen time and percentage...it depends on how the phone is used

    Amoled screen always have great video play time, it's not the same as Web browsing or other Internet heavy activities.
