    So I've had my S6 for just over a week and am really enjoying it, unfortunately though I am experiencing some serious battery issues. Most nights for instance I'm losing about 30% while I sleep and that's with mobile data and bluetooth turned off, the only thing on is WiFi. Here is an example from last night, I went to sleep with it on 90%, having used a few apps before bed and then woke up with it on 60%:

    Any advice?

    The biggest battery hog on this phone is WiFi. Make sure it is set to WiFi off when phone is asleep in the advanced WiFi settings. And even better, if you don't have to use WiFi at all due to data limits, turn it off completely and your battery life will increase tremendously. Also turn off WiFi scanning.

    If you have to use WiFi, get an app like Smart WiFi Toggler that will immediately turn off your WiFi as soon as you leave a known WiFi network area.

    Also go into the detail battery settings and put all your nonessential apps on auto stop. This will make sure they all stop running in the background after you stop using them.
