    So tired of hearing these lame excuses. Oh its the carriers fault. Oh its googles fault. Oh its the app developers fault. Oh its the users fault for not turning off a bunch of services.
    Man, I've been trying to refrain from posting in your ever lasting complaints, our memory is not short, you were here bashing the S6 even before most of us had the phone, hell even before it was released, always comparing to the iPhone, but you know, give it a rest now, just go to your carrier and return the phone that I don't know why you got because it was so obvious you had an agenda since way before. Saying that the Browser had an issue with redrawing pages, as far as I can see nobody else has mentioned this, talking about stutter and lags even before people had their phones, talking about Demo units or reviews with pre release software on it, I even remember that you said that because of that you will look elsewhere, then why you bought it?, and now that you bought it, why haven't you even try to see if the issue you have can be fixed like the majority of people here that have tried one or various of the possible solutions? Where are your battery stats screenshots showing your faulty device?

    You bought a phone with a 2550mAh moving a QHD display not the crappy iPhone's "Retina Display" running Lollipop 5.0.1 version that EVERYBODY know that it has lot of bugs, and most of them affecting battery with the Wakelocks, so what else were you expecting, really? I'm not a Samsung fanboy, I've had 6 phones in the last 12 months, Galaxy S5, LG G3, Sony Xperia Z3, Note 4, OnePlus One and now the Galaxy S6 edge, so when something is wrong is wrong, but it's obvious when people come here with their agendas, that indeed gets old, and me as most of the rest here are tired of it.

    Again, when the phone is working as it should and I 'm sure that as Samsung expected when designed it, it gives great battery life, 5-6 SoT for a normal user, and that it's even better when you take in consideration the small battery and the Highest specs. When the phone has some of the bugs that people are already aware of, then it can get seriously bad, but that's what this forums are for, you either do something about it and try to fix it, or return it if you don't want to wait for a permanent fix. In your case, please do all of us a favor and return yours, yesterday was Instagram, today is battery and tomorrow you'll find something else to complain about, just like you are doing since the last week of March.

    I rarely gets involved in this nonsense online discussion, but come on, we are not stupid, you had a problem since way before it was released, you have been saying forever that the iphone is better basically in every department, so I can't keep quiet while people with obvious agendas come to this forums that are suppose to help people with real interest on the phone, and just bash and bash but never seem to do something about it, again, please do yourself and the rest of us a favor and return your phone and go back to your iPhone, you surely enjoy it a lot more.

    Man, I'm already frustrated with some users here, we try our best to collect as much info as possible to try to look for a fix as a community and there are people that don't participate, look for their selfish attitude and even criticize those that come here to provide hints or solutions to their problems.

    First thing I do when I buy a new device (7 in the past 12 months) is to let it run with my personalized settings and Bloat removed or disabled and that gives me an idea of what that device is capable of in relation to battery, then I may or may not do some more tweaks here or there to try to accomplish what I want. Pretending to buy a device, leave every possible features or options ON all the time, syncing everything possible in all the accounts and then complaints about poor life on a 2550-2600mAh battery device with a QHD display is totally nonsense to me. Yes, it maybe a bug with Wifi that is causing havoc, but the only way to know if you have a device affected by it or not is adjusting and turning things off so you should know for sure what it is.

    You should have known better before buying it, and the fact that this phone is giving to a lot of us more than 5 hours and up to 6 hours of SoT is the proof of what this device is capable of, if yours is not giving you that, you may have a rogue app, defective device or your usage and/or personal preferences related to brightness and features and options On will make this and any other device suffer in this department and sorry my friends but if this is your case then there is nobody else's fault but yours, you couldn't pretend to achieve better battery life than the 5-6 SoT of us or whatever you are getting if you are a heavy user and/or your settings and preferences won't allow for similar results, you should have opted for a Phablet or something like the Xperia Z3 with Huge batteries and in the case of the Z3, great optimization in Standby mode for better battery life.

    One thing you must accept even when you hate or simply criticize Samsung and the S6, is that if they give us 5-6 SoT in a device with a 2550-2600 mAh battery on a QHD display with one of the thinnest and lightest bezel, they managed to designed a wonderful device with even greater potential once the bugs are all figured it out and fixed.
    AGREE totally. I'm easily getting 5hrs SOT with over 16hrs uptime. I haven't everything disabled cause I USE my phone. I DO however, have it optimised for my usage. I browse twitter, FB, news etc, use WhatsApp, play some pool, stream to my chromecast.
    Anyone blaming the S6 and hardware for being sub Par here clearly has a defective device. Go get it changed peeps.

    You beat me to this. I was just about to call him out for this iPhone/S6 nonsense. Enough is enough, man. You don't like the phone or like the iPhone 6 much better. This phone absolutely destroys the iPhone, but you have your preferences. Return it, if you even have it, and go back to your iPhone.

    This thread, and all the others like it, are so depressing. The S6 is such an utterly terrific phone in so many ways. But Google, through Android Lollipop, has burdened it with massive battery issues, mostly inexcusable standby drain, which is spoiling the experience for so many.

    Next Monday, I will have owned my S6 for a month (I was a T-Mobile first day pre-release) with no true Lollipop drain fix in sight. I still have my iPhone 6 Plus and I can tell you on days I bring my 6 Plus to my office, my mind is so much more at ease with no worries about changing this setting, modifying that setting, cache refreshing, Factory Resetting, runaway apps, out of control Google Services, etc. It might drain 1-2% all day on WiFi if i don't use it, and even using it quite a bit lets me go home with 90% battery left.

    Apple has somehow figured out how to sandbox all these battery draining apps, but yet every single one of the apps still works - I still have Google updating all of its services, Microsoft services humming along, Facebook, Twitter, even WiFi calling, etc. It's perplexing why Google doesn't address these issues in Android, still leaving the tremendous flexibility and features that Android has brought to the table. And, frankly, Android's own services seem to be the biggest battery hog of all in Standby.

    Google NEEDS to address this for the S6 and all the other phones plagued by these Lollipop drain issues. I'm reading about this all over the Forums. What a travesty that Samsung built such an amazing phone only to have so many people constantly worrying over battery issues.

    The fact that you can literally charge it for 20 minutes and get 40-50% back more than makes up for this right now. It does need to be fixed, but if history serves, it will be.

    Thanks for taking the time to reply! I'm feeling so desperate that ANY help at all feels like a drink in the desert, lol! I think I'm going to take the leap and factory reset. I'll set it up as a totally fresh device and hope that helps.
    Sometimes it's just a bad phone. So if it doesn't help just bring it back and get a new one. Good luck

    I really hope you're right and Google pays attention and gets a fix out soon for all Lollipop users. You can hear the pain from so many people that are having issues, especially for a phone as popular and important for Android (the S6) gets more widely released.

    Considering my experience with the S6 Edge so far, the ceiling for battery life is pretty decent on this phone. It'll never be the type of performer the Note 4 is due to the battery size, but the efficiency of the hardware is pretty impressive. Add in the fact that I can charge this for a short period of time and gain substantial battery back, it's not all bad. Plus all the wireless charging capabilities. It's not a bad alternative.

    This isn't about preference. This is about performance. Im merely comparing the two since then iPhone is what im used to. Not my fault there's so many faults with lollipop, android app developers and whatever carrier issues everyone is trying to place their blame on.

    Denial isn't just a river in Egypt. Apple makes a great device but has plenty of bugs no one acknowledges. Antenna gate ring a bell. Blaming the customer before taking ownership and fixing it. Didn't hear Google blaming customers.
    What is this even about? Just irrelevant drivel about unrelated issues. This isn't about apple vs android. This is about experiencing terrible battery life on the s6 in comparison to my wife's phone which happens to be an iPhone 6. If her phone was another android device and also outlasted my s6, I would have said the same thing.

    All you're doing is complaining. Plenty of people have offered advice on what to do, but you continue to ignore it and just say your iPhone is better. Then you expect that's going to be agreed on---in a GS6 forum on an Android site. My experience differs greatly from your own. No iPhone I've ever had, and I've had pretty much everyone of them, could hang with this battery life.

    I could spend some time bashing the iPhone and bugs it has/has had, but I don't care enough about that device to do so. Either return the phone, exchange it for another S6, or factory reset it. Not that difficult.

    First of all, not every GS6 owner is having battery issues. Your issues may be a combination of carrier issues and Lolllipop bug. By every objective measure aka facts, GS6 battery life is better than the IPhone. How many times has Apple,rushed out bug fixes. Google will fix their issues. Stop complaining and return your GS6 as you are clearly unhappy with it so as to save us from your disingenuous comments not backed up by facts. If you had facts, you would already cited them.

    Lol disingenuous?! Someone just posted their iPhone 5s had better battery life than their s6! Guess you better go call them out and tell them they're a liar too!

    I have no idea what carrier issues there may be but I'm currently on Orange in Europe. I've yet to hear anyone report there's a carrier issue/bug with them and the s6. Maybe there is. I haven't really looked into it.

    Why are you guys jumping all over stevelam? He raises some legitimate issues. Does the S6 have the *potential* to have pretty impressive battery life, definitely from what I've seen of Adranalyne's postings. I would kill for 5 hrs 41 minutes of SoT and 15 hours off charger with some life still left in the phone. Those are just great numbers and way more than my expectation ever was for a 2,600mAh phone.

    But my real world experience, and that of many others, falls FAR short of that and I'm pretty sure my phone has the exact same battery saving settings as Adranalyne. So, then it begs the legitimate question for conversation of why do some people get exceptional battery life and others just don't?

    Here's what my battery life looked like yesterday when I got home...

    That cell standby number is huge and nonexistent on my device. That's got a lot to do with this. It may have -everything- to do with this. There's an obvious issue with -some- devices, not all, and it stems from issues that are rooted in Lollipop right now. The S6 is not the only device affected by this.

    I don't know how many times myself and others need to say it; you either have patience that Google is going to fix this, and history shows that they do, or you don't and you return it. This isn't that complicated. Complaining about this literally solves nothing. Comparing it to the iPhone achieves nothing. You've seen, either from me or others, what the battery life can be like when this device is unaffected by these issues. You can wait it out, reset again (and I'd recommend a full reset; no restores), or give up and return it. The complaining and whining has got to stop.

    And when all things are equal, and right now iOS 8 has been out longer than Lollipop and the iPhone 6 and 5S has been out longer than the S6, this phone destroys both of them in battery life.

    I'm not sure who you are referring to but most of us are on the Forums to have conversations and seek solutions - they are not complaints and whining. Most people here are seeking answers to legitimate issues. That's why they are here and what this Forum is for, or at least most of us thought.

    I suppose if you only want to hear the good things about the S6, and there are plenty, then maybe just click on those threads that talk about the amazing screen, the cool edge, the great fingerprint reader, the awesome fast charging. Those awesome things should make you happy.

    But stop calling people having a legitimate conversation about questionable battery life (no matter the fault of Lollipop, Cell Standby, Android System, Google Play Services, rogue apps, etc.) whiners and jumping down anybody that is frustrated with certain features of their phone. It's getting old and I'm truly surprised the Moderators allow you to keep doing this.

    I'm sure they don't have an issue with this because I've exhausted every resource to try to help. Erasat definitely has. We've made it clear what the issues are and I think most people understand it. You can't fix it, neither can we, but people like stevelam constantly complaining about everything even before he had the phone is getting old.

    It's not like there isn't an issue that Google needs to address. It's not like I, or others, haven't tried to help in any way we can. Constantly complaining when the choices are right in front of your face is beyond annoying. Either you're willing to exchange, willing to be patient, or you need to return it. I don't know how many times myself or others need to say that, but that's literally all there is to it.

    I'm not following you. What choices do we need to make?

    I have my phone set the SAME way that you and erasat do - WiFi calling off, VoLTE off, nearly all Google services (other than email) off, Location Services off, NFC off, WiFi scanning off, WiFi smart scan off, brightness at 30%, all pre-loaded unused apps off, etc. This thing is 80% shut down. I've done 2 Factory Resets (clean, no restore from a prior save) and many, many cache wipe-outs.

    My issues first were Cell Standby, then Google Play Services, then Android System and now back to Cell Standby. Just when I think an issue is gone, another one pops up.

    There is nothing more I can do other than throw the towel in, which I'm not willing to do yet. This phone is PERFECT other than the legitimate battery life issues. I haven't experienced battery management issues like this since my early days of Android. In the past month (nearly) of my ownership, I've seen Samsung push an update out and then Google Play Services so I'm hoping that there will be a fix for the issues so many people are experiencing. And, I agree that the core of this is Lollipop and it's affecting many Android devices but that doesn't help me or all the others with frustrating battery life.

    But, I know this will frustrate you, I'm not willing to sit back and wait quietly for a fix. It's been a month. I spent over $1,000.00 on this phone and have a lot of time and money invested in it (I bought it outright) and I have expectations it will work properly. It doesn't even have to work as well as yours - I'd be thrilled with 4 hours SoT...but I'm half of that right now and am at the mercy of some update that we all hope Google makes to the phone at some undetermined point.

    So you're just going to complain about it knowing that you or I can't fix it? I don't understand the reasoning. You have the option to exchange this phone as a defect. In your position, almost a month in, that's what I'd do. I'd set the new phone up as brand new; no restoring from a previous backup. That's the thing, though. You're not doing that. You're just coming here and complaining. It's not that I don't understand how frustrating that would be, but you haven't exhausted all options here.

    The other thing here is that you may have to adjust your habits until this gets fixed. Only in the rare cases does someone not have 20-30 minutes during the day to charge their phone. You can get 50% back in 30 minutes. That's a huge help in this case.

In your position, almost a month in, that's what I'd do. I'd set the new phone up as brand new; no restoring from a previous backup. That's the thing, though. You're not doing that. You're just coming here and complaining. It's not that I don't understand how frustrating that would be, but you haven't exhausted all options here.

    The other thing here is that you may have to adjust your habits until this gets fixed. Only in the rare cases does someone not have 20-30 minutes during the day to charge their phone. You can get 50% back in 30 minutes. That's a huge help in this case.

    If I thought swapping it out my S6 would make a difference, I'd do that in a second. But I've seen so many posts of people going through multiple phones only to have the same drain issues reappear on their second or third phone and finally conclude it's a software issue.

    I'm pretty confident this is not a hardware problem. I think the phone is really solid. I have been on the phone with T-Mobile support and they said they are aware of the issue and working on a fix with Google. That's the most they would give me.

    Don't disagree on the charging top-off and whenever I can, I definitely do that. The fast charging is amazing. But some days it's just not possible.

    What if you exchange your device and get one like mine? It's not like it's impossible. Well worth the effort given the money you've spent.

    Ha! Well, then I would certainly conclude it was a hardware issue!

    Just want to leave something here for those who insist on causing drama to read.

    FWIW.. Telling members to stop whining and complaining is NOT appropriate behavior just in case were unclear on this.
