    I've heard some have concerns due to it being on all the time and affecting the battery.

    Do you keep it on all the time?

    Yep -- No worries about the battery. It is replaceable if anything did happen but honestly .. by the time that happens you will likely be looking for a new phone. I am going to enjoy the quick charging feature so I can always be mobile.

    I am sure Samsung put this feature through testing before mass producing it. These batteries are only good for a couple years at most anyway and by that time you will be typing on your new note 6.

    I've seen this question asked several times now.

    My understanding is that fast charging only happens when using the charging brick that came with it. Based on that, I would imagine that having it on or off wouldn't matter if you're not using the fast charging brick.

    Is there a way to turn it off? I personally like this feature.

    No, I don't keep it on because I don't want to put stress on the battery. I'm only using it when I know I forgot to charge my phone and I need a quick boost before I leave the house.

    If you go under settings and scroll down near the bottom you should be able to find it.

    I actually don't even charge my phone. I just swap out the battery. However this morning I was at 20% and wanted to save my full battery since I was going to work, so I tried fast charging. Went from 20% to 68% in a little less than 30 minutes. Awesome.

    Yep it is awesome when needed! . I did the same .. charged spare last night and when I woke up phone wasn't low but it was at 78% so I plugged it in.. showered... then went to leave for work and it was at 98% .. So two batteries at 100% (pretty much) with me at work. No worries on battery for me .

    Most should be the same -- So not sure why you can't find the battery stats within your settings. It is a standard area for all Android phones.

    I can find the battery stats. It's under powersaving.

    And from the sound of it not all are the same. If I could post a picture I would. But I'm one away from being able to post em

    There has to be a reason why they have an option to turn it off. I'll use it when necessary, but I keep it off, since I keep it charging from my computer.

    When charging from the computer it won't use it even if it is enabled. You will notice fast charging when you plug into the wall -- the phone will scroll the message that the Adaptive Fast Charger has been connected.

    I see you have power saving on -- so that may be why.

    If it is like that even with it off .. I guess Sprint just decided to clump it all? .
