    So I recently got my s6 and have been getting not the best of battery life
    My screen on time is 1 hour 41 min with 39% left. I'm a fairly light user. Is this normal or is my phone defective?

    Welcome to Android Central! It would help to see more battery stats. Charge up to 100%, then let it drain to 20-30% with normal usage, without charging in between. Then show us:

    1. The main Settings>Battery screen.
    2. The fullscreen battery graph screen (which shows Awake time and Cell Signal Strength).
    3. The Screen category (to see total Screen On time).
    4. The Cell Standby category, if present (to see Time Without Signal).

    Cell Standby is always the biggest battery drain. It's that normal??

    That would tend to indicate that you have a very weak cell signal, which causes a high battery drain. Maybe you went with the wrong carrier.

    Or you have the cell standby/wi-fi issue that is known for the S6. See the first post of this thread: http://forums.androidcentral.com/sam...questions.html

    I have Verizon which has the strongest signal around here. It's not a weak signal problem
