    I'm going to be purchasing a new S6 or Edge model and from the articles I have read online, there are conflicting reports stating the edge model has a 10-12% better battery life and others the opposite.

    I would like to hear from first hand real users what they are seeing if they have had the opportunity to use both phones.

    thanks

    I only have experience with the edge (and have had persistent battery drain issues with that) but I cannot imagine the edge having any measurable battery life advantage over the 'regular' S6. Both should give you roughly 4-5 hours SoT and 15-20 hours standby if they are operating normally.

    Thanks, i have posted the same question on other forums and a few have responded the edge is slightly better but the consensus is the battery life is not as good as advertised like you stated.

    My s6 battery life was terrible. The edge, however, has been stellar! Check it out:

    I wanted to spread the good word that they aren't all bad. This phone is amazing! AND this battery life is WITH cell standby at 67% ... imagine what it'll be after Google fixes this cell standby issue. Amazing!
