    Just got my S6 today. It was on 45% out of the box. Plugged it into the "quick charger" that came with it and went to dinner. It was 53% and after 2 hours when I returned it is at 83%. This is quick charging or is it because it's the first time? My HTC M9 with the quick charger could have gone from 45% to 100% in a matter of minutes.

    Something doesn't sound right at all .. Check in your notification shade and see if the phone notices it as "Fast Charging". If so either your brick or cord could be damaged.

    Yeah, something is wrong. It shouldn't take that long at all.

    Thanks guys. I think the cord was seated all the way into the brick. Now I see the fast charging symbol in the panel and it says "32 minutes from 81% to full" which isn't too bad I guess, but not stellar either.

    All li-ion battery charge faster from 0 to 80ish. Above that is saturation charge stage, no fast charging can help that, is just always slow.

    Yea, I agree and I'm ok with it. I meant to say in my last reply that the cord was not fully seated in the brick which is why it wasn't fast charging.

    Put mine on the Cigarette charger in the CAr and it started charging pretty Fast.
    Come home and put in on the 110Vac charger and it charged great.

    Been talk'n a lot on the phone. Laid it in the charger pad. Man I like the charging pad.

    Not alone here OP. I also used the supplied wire and said 4 hours. I then used the one from my S4 and fast charging is now displayed.

    Update changed to original cable which is shorter for some reason and noticed the cable didn't go in all the way so I pushed it in and it's working properly, but an hour damn it takes a while then. Same thing as in the S4.

    I think Assassin Droid recommended that you not let your battery get below around 40 percent.
