    This is another battery post, but I don't think it's been addressed. Is it me or does the first 10% drop faster then it begins to stablize after the first 10

    I've noticed this too. My phone hits 99% almost immediately after taking it off the charger. After 90%, it drains at a slower rate.

    Maybe it's the chargers we use. Mine is a slow charger that is plugged S6 all night, about 7 hours straight. I don't see the rapid drop to 90%, it is much slower and gradual. Right now I'd trade crappy battery life to get rid of my screen sensitivity issues

    I've had an android phone since 2009, and it has pretty much always dropped quickly from 100 to 90, and then evens out. HTC phones were the worst, they would fall to 80 before straightening itself out.

    Ok just wanted to make sure I wasn't the only one. So there is no solution? It's just a thing?

    I believe it's the way all lithium ion batteries discharge, or at least for phones. The first 10% or so drops faster then it stabilizes after that.I can't find the website I read it off of, someone linked to it in another post on here, but I think it's for battery health.

    I think that's an Android thing. I used to get that a lot with my Nexus 5.

    Not everyone is having battery issues. The battery not draining a percent in standby in "almost an hour and a half" isn't BS. Not probable, but not impossible, either.

    Also for the people with good battery life, what would be the ideal percentage drop if u aren't gaming and just Web browsing on Chrome or FB for example u drop 1% per 5 mins or something. I'm not asking because I have bad battery life just wondering how my battery life matches up

    Not at all, he is describing my battery performance on standby and more perfectly. Some of us got lucky with the battery life.

    Wow!! What I wouldn't give for that! I'm back to roughly 5% per hour standby drain on WiFi now that the Cell standby bug has reappeared. The S6 sure does have potential which is what keeps me hopeful for a permanent fix one day!

    This isn't an exact tested number but I have been watching my battery while using my phone and it seams to drop 1% every 4 or 5 minutes . As far as stand by time I have never really looked into that with my phone yet.

    This is with most things turned off though. I only turn things like GPS or Bluetooth on when I actually need them . Wifi off also. My phone does better than my s5 did and I have all the settings pretty much set exactly the same as I did on my s5

    On verizon.

    I lose 5% overnite(7hrs)on standby. Being in a meeting for and hour and a half on standby i could certainly see staying to 100%. My S6 has been up for 9 hours and I'm down to 48%. This included loads of extra stuff today due to my screen insensitivity issue I was dealing with. Numerous Cache cleanings, rebootings and tons of web browsing looking for the cure. I'm very happy with that. A few of us are able to count ourselves lucky regarding battery usage/life. I'm on Verizon, not T-(batt issues)Mobile. So maybe makes some difference. Hope everyone gets it sorted.

    I find standby time great overnight on WiFi but once I'm on LTE and outdoors, the standby drain is noticeably increased. I find Google Services becomes more of a battery hog and Facebook too. I'm still on my 2nd charge though so I have a lot of fine tuning left to do.

    Had that happen to me after I had the phone for a few days. I was so excited. It didn't last and never happened again.

    I usually drop 1% every 5 mins or pretty much 10% an hr when I'm Web surfing etc
    I just swapped phones on Thurs because of the standby problem and I'm going to test it on Monday at work when I have lots of time for it to stand idle. It was draining about 3-4 % per hr with my previous phone
    If it continues like that, I'll have to make the decision to return it (trial ends next Thursday ) or rely on the quick charging (which is excellent! )

    I have T-mobile version and I don't find issues with it. It only drains my battery when I'm playing games at home on my WiFi. Mind you not I'm at school for 8 hours and I barely get to take the phone out my pocket so I really don't know how good my battery life is
