    The manual states that the charger in the box is a fast charger. It takes forever to recharge this phone. 5 hours. My note 3 didn't even come close to taking this long. Anyone else have this issue?

    Not at all...maybe you need a Factory Reset? My included Samsung charger (the white one for T-Mobile) charges at roughly 1.5% per minute. It is truly fantastic and one of the best features of the S6.

    Possibly a bad battery?

    I would guess bad charger. Try to go back to the store where you bought it and have them test it.

    When you pull down the notification shade does it say 'Fast Charge' or something like that in the notification where is says how long it takes to charge? If not, and maybe trying another outlet does not work, then it's probably just a bad charger.

    Well I had the same issue. My phone would take forever to charge and I didn't know why.. I know this sounds ridiculous but I read on some other thread to make sure both ends of the USB be correctly plugged in.. And I checked and noticed that one end of my USB wasn't plugged in all the way into the socket. Solved the problem

    You have to make sure ur charging adapter supports fast charging... If you are using a fast charging adapter, it might be because something is wrong with the charger or USB cable

    Try disconnecting the charger from the phone and putting the charger back in. First time I plugged it in fast charge didn't work, but on 2nd try it worked.

    Ssme thing with me...the first time it's like the charger didnt work. The second time and every time after that it's working as advertised - blazing fast!

    One other thing - fast charging does not work if the screen is on. If you are constantly checking your phone for whatever, it's not going to be that fast.

    That said, 5 hours would be a long time with any charger...
