    Well, it all depends. Mine lost 3% last night while I slept. Did you do anything on it in those 10 minutes?

    Mine does that and I don't consider it normal. All my other phones (iPhone, LG G3, etc) stay @ 100% for at least 2 hours if idle. So the S6 shouldn't drop that quickly. It is the one area I'm having an issue with on this phone.

    I did take some pics but prior to that it went to 99 from 100 doing nothing

    Note 3 does the same, I guess it's a Samsung thing. However, my note 3 losses like 3-4% when I restart it, my S6 does not do that. Smacks of software optimization to me.

    My concerns are the idle time on this phone are really bad compared to my past phones. SOT means very little to me as I am not a power user. Battery drop while idle is more important as I go on long bike rides and want to know my phone will have juice when/if I need it. My LG G3 can go HOURS without dropping below 95%. This phone drops 2-3% per hour when on wifi (and much worse when on LTE) which is ridiculous while idle. I can charge my iPhone and G3 to 100% and go to bed and wake up 6-7 hours later at 100% on both.

    Other than the horrible idle time on battery I really like the phone. I have disabled everything I don't need, cleared the cache, etc and it still is not doing the trick. I know it is not Lollipop as my G3 is on Lollipop and it does not have battery drain issues while idle. Maybe it is an optimization issue with Samsung's software. I still have time to try various tweaks and find a solution.

    It should not be normal, unless with the S6 this is normal however, my advise is to go setting by setting unchecking every thing that it is a battery drainer, like GPS, Sync, time the display stays on, etc.
