    I'm away from a charger every time I feel like having a life and not being tired to a wall outlet. I spend hours at the park (sometimes so much as 8), spend countless hours with the lady at the mall, and once or twice a year I goto a theme park where I'll not use my phone much but will not be near a charger for at least 12 hours. I fly, no charging. I play at the beach also for 10 to 14 hours, no charging. I'm so sorry that you don't have a life and expect others to be in the same boat as you.

    I'M NOT TURNING MYSELF INTO THE BATMAN AND CARRYING CHARGERS, OTG CABLES, AND USB STICKS ON MY BELT.

    if you have to adapt to a device then that device is not worth it. Normal people want convenience, not having to bend over backwards to get something to work for them.

    Believe me, just for the camera alone I want the S6 badly. but if the phone is dead then how good is the camera?

    You're getting way too worked up about this. Maybe you should put your decision on hold for now and let the rest of us who aren't worried about the battery life (and for good reason) discuss this kind of stuff.

    Give it a rest. You're looking for a reason to hate on the S6, so you're grasping at any little thing no matter its doubtful nature.
    For you to believe a single anecdote from an htc fan and ignore the SoT pictures from actual users and battery life tests from reputed websites takes some special twisted thinking. I'm impressed.

    Guess you didn't like the screen shots, then. They don't happen to suit your argument so you ignore them. Makes perfect sense.

    I provided screen shots and referenced other reviews that directly contradict his findings. What else do you want? You've made your mind up. "S6 battery sucks". So move on. We'll enjoy decent battery life on an awesome phone and you can complain about something else.

    Question: What is on screen time before battery drains out? Any scratches on glass, front and back, during your time with phone?

    Daniel: I'm getting pretty good screen on time, like 3-4 hours on a 13-15 battery hour day. But I'm a heavy user doing lots of testing, so I don't think battery life correlates to a regular person's.

    Honestly, I've been disappointed with the battery and will be updating my review accordingly. While the software is considered pre-production, I've had to charge the device at least once per day to make it until bedtime. The good thing is that the device supports Fast Charging, which is amazing.

    As for scratches, I'm very careful with the device, but nothing so far.

    Me: Based on your reviews of both the S6 and M9 it seems like you came away more impressed with the M9 battery life. I know you got the software update from HTC on the 19th and still have the pre-production software from Samsung. But as of now, would that be an accurate assessment? Also, is the M9 on screen time more than 3-4 hours?

    Daniel: Yeah, the One M9 definitely gets better battery life. I'll have to get back to you about the SOT, but I think it's about 10-15% higher than the S6.

    They listed "very long battery life" as a pro.
    "The very long-term online from 8:05 hours accompanied by an equally great Telephony duration of 9:43 hours."

    "While the battery measurements initially surprised us the eleven-hour-long telephone runtime. 6:30 are then less awesome for continuous surfing."

    That is on pre-production software. I have no doubts that 4 hours on screen is attainable on these phones. Not only do the screen shots John posted show that it's very possible, the battery size coupled with the efficient hardware is a good fit for that type of battery life.

    Honestly, I think reviewers are using the S6 A LOT more than the M9, considering Samsung bested htc in build quality, feel and overall performance.

    The M9 doesn't feel as good to use as the S6 (I've felt the S6 at Best Buy) and there's still some stuttering in the M9 UI which the S6 doesn't have. It might be that the reviewers are using the S6 a lot more and putting the M9 on stand-by most of the time.

    In an unbiased test where the S6 and M9 are doing the same exact things, the S6 has better battery life than the M9.

    No problem, man. I can understand your concern. I get by with 4 on my Nexus 6. I wouldn't have bought the Edge if I didn't think I could get the same or more. I'll be sure to share as much as I can when I get it in hand.

    I'm not jumping into that ring this time around. Proud of me, Paul? The S series versus One series thing doesn't bother me. You very well could be right about the S6 having better battery life, but that's not something I'm focused on.

    Daniel has been using the S6 and M9 phones for 3 weeks straight now and is more of an iPhone fan than anything else. Your words were;

    "For you to believe a single anecdote from an htc fan and ignore the SoT pictures from actual users and battery life tests from reputed websites takes some special twisted thinking"

    I found something that meets your criteria and you just pooh pooh it and everyone else that disagrees with you and make up excuses.

    So explain that 5 hour SoT and those benchmark figures?
    The figures I give are actual, objective results.

    Saying things like, "Yeah, I think the M9 has better battery life even though I probably used the S6 a lot more and put the M9 on stand-by because the S6 is a lot more interesting" isn't really objective or fair.
    You need a standard of measurement, and we see that when the M9 and S6 are doing the same exact tasks, the S6 beats the M9 in battery life.

    You guys need to stop the circular firing squad. HTC and Apple fans must laughing their tails off. None of you is going to convince the other. You are acting like dogs chasing their tails. Battery life is important but if it so much of a distraction, pass on the GS6 so we can discuss more important things.

    Benchmarks are a synthetic metric and not real world usage by actual human beings. You do understand the difference between an actual human being using the phone for 3 weeks that evaluates tech for a living vs a computer simulated model that is a proxy for real world usage right?

    The most important thing to me on my next device is battery life or more specifically making it through a day without a charge. My last phone was great in every way except that, so I'm not making that compromise again. Especially given what these phones are costing these days. That's why the Z4 is on my radar as well as the S6 or the M9. Who are you to decide what the "important things" are?

    It's kind of funny watching all of this, bottom line is we'll have plenty of real world results in a month or so to make a determination if it's the right phone for the hold-outs.

    As far as HTC fans laughing at us, puhleese...they release one more dud of an offering and they'll be out of business. I say their sales results at the end of the year are abysmal.
