    Apparently the battery on s6 edge is supposed to suck, I should have polishing scratches, and brightness issues.

    From reading the forums anyway. Just wanted to report my findings, I have had zero issues other than getting used to the smaller screen/keyboard.

    I'm in love.

    I'm on Sprint, returning to Samsung after a long time with HTC. I tried a test of leaving my phone off the charger last night with the Edge Screen clock going while it was backing up my photos and hooked up to wireless. No issues at all, went from 97% to 91% I believe?

    It's really a fantastic phone. Hoping some software updates fix the battery issues some have been seeing.

    Sprint black 64 edge here and my brightness and screen are perfect. However i do have a wifi drain issue. Came to work and connected to wifi and i started losing battery pretty fast, turned it off and have better battery with 1 bar of lte at work vs full wifi so something is obviously wrong

    Edit

    The other thing that disappointed me was the wireless charger i woke up this morning with only 88% thats really bad i expected it to keep it topped off better than that

    I've heard of people having problems with positioning the phone just right to ensure charging on the wireless pad

    It was on the charger fine i think once it was full it stops charging completely then it will drain and if im correct it wont resume charging unless you take it off the charger and place it back on

    Real happy for you guys. My replacement edge is on the way and hopefully that one will be issue free. My current one has WiFi battery drain (Verizon) and loads of scratches. It even has some weird bend in the screen (behind the glass) that you can see in real bright light.

    There's no doubt this is a fantastic device and most of the time I'm using it, it is problem free. Really really hope the next one is better. There's no doubt there is/was some quality control issues.

    Day 2 with my s6 edge and also loving it. Actually very pleasantly surprised by the battery life, this is an important factor for me and it has surpassed my expectations. It managed 13h 51m 14s with quite a lot of web browsing on 4g and WiFi, maybe about 4/5 hours, plus playing sims freeplay for about an hour on top of quite a lot of texting, checking emails, Facebook and generally just having a play around with it. It's gorgeous and I am in love! I've had so many smartphones from the iPhone 3gs, HTC sensation to the galaxy s3, HTC one, galaxy s4, galaxy note 1, 2 and 3, iPhone 5s, Nokia lumia 930, HTC one m8, iPhone 6 plus, galaxy note 4, galaxy note edge (which I sent back within 2 weeks as had a really bad problem with cycling into no service) to name only a few and nothing comes close to this experience! I'm a gadget freak and I truly feel like I have the best tablet/phone combination now with my lovely gold s6 edge 64gb and my amazing surface pro 3 core i7 512gb.

    I had over 5 hours screen on time on my first full day. Today I'm on pace for over 6 hours, but theres no way ill use it that much. I've been really happy with the battery life so far. This was really the only worry I had before preordering.

    My battery seems fine as well and appears to be on par with my iPhone 6. I am running mine on tmobile and haven't used WiFi at all though.

    Looks like I may have some to soon/stuck my foot in my mouth.

    I'm having major screen rotation issues. Not sure when it started but definitely didn't come out of the box like that.

    I really hope there's a fix, I really love my phone :-(

    And insecure? So those with problems vent on the forums. That's part of the deal. Flaws do happen, and so do manufacturing mishaps. I'm glad you're enjoying your new toy but no need to dog on others.

    Try going into Recovery mode and clear cache. See if it helps after it reboots.

    I get 3 1/2 - 4 1/2 screen on time. Mostly around 3 1/2.

    T-Mobile 64 GB White Edge. Not as good as my iPhone 6 in my experience.

    Yeah. Not everyone that is having issues is here complaining and saying the phone sucks. Most are discussing possible fixes. I'm happy for everyone that got great phones right out of the box on their first try. Others weren't so lucky.

    Wi-Fi is the issue with the battery it seems. Turn off Wi-Fi and my battery is still 100% from idling for 6 hours. But if I have Wi-Fi is on. Then I would lose about 3% from idling for 6 hours.

    YMMV. I'm sure there are quite a few people that don't feel their S6/S6e "s*ck".

    Yeah I'm not having any battery problems either. It is somewhat better with wifi off, but it's still fine for me. Not having any of these other issues people are having. I just had an overheating issue the first week or so I had the phone, which seems to have resolved itself. I did try to get t mobile to send me a new phone (because I was concerned about the initial overheating), and received a total of four phones that were either covered with scratches or had weird issues like display discoloration and weird dips in the glass. Decided to stick with the first phone, which has zero issues, except it gets a little warm once in a while.

    With me my first s6 edge did have a ton of polishing scratches. The T-Mobile rep saw it also and was amazed. Swapped it out for another which had no scratches. Coming from an N5 I was scared but am loving it and have no lag.

    Battery:

    I got this on launch day at the store so battery is still not at full capacity but I got 4 hours screen on time yesterday and got home with over 30% left on a full day of use.

    Currently I am at this, screenshots attached.

    Much better than my N5 and I am very happy with it... And I despise touchwiz haha. Running google now launcher and google keyboard. Disabled all Samsung and t mobile apps I could and have no issues with touchwiz now besides the notification bar and lock screen.
