    I really like this s6 from the size to smoothness and especially the build quality. The only thing that I can't get over is the battery or lack thereof. I'm typing at 9:55am at 53% and I had the phone at 93% when I woke up at 6:30am. I have only been checking the phone for emails, Facebook and typing for about 10 minutes total. The other weird issue I have is when I plug the phone in and it reads 100%, it immediately goes to 98% the second I unplug it. Very odd. So my take it that Samsungs priorities are all screwed up. So this Fall, I'll be looking at the next Moto, Nexus, Love Sony or possibly I dare say Iphone 6s or whatever they call it.

    Well, the next Moto should be announced next week. That will be interesting. Hopefully, the next Nexus is a 2 phone release as well. Gives everyone more choices.

    As far as you battery is concerned, without seeing any battery stats, Facebook can sometimes be a battery hog, depending on the settings for how often it refreshes.

    Lol I posted on the unplugging and it going to 99 or 99% immediately on the phone earlier on here too. It's weird

    I can do this with any phone. My m8, Asus zf2, and my friend's G4. Of all the phones listed, the G4 is the quickest to drop to 99%. All on AT&T Btw.

    It doesn't even get used. It literally drops to 99 or 98% once it's unplugged

    Yes -- this is normal. Batteries have dead zones so sometimes they can do this once unplugged.

    This may be, but through about 20 smartphones, this is the only one I've experienced the battery drop.

    I have experienced it with other phones. Not every phone will do it but it dropping 1% or so isn't uncommon.

    Is the Moto supposed to have a bigger battery?

    I am not. I am pretty happy with my G4 . I am curious to see what Moto is announcing soon.

    I wonder if there is/are a bad batch of S6 phones, as I can take mine off the charger at 6:30am and put it back on the charger at 11:00pm at night and have anywhere from 40% left on some nights and then others I'll have lower, think lowest I had was 12% but it's always lasted me through the day.

    I'm wondering that too. My S6 can go 24 hours with 4-5 hours screen time pretty much every time I take it off the charger. I only drain about 1-2% overnight as well. I use mine normally with GPS, NFC, Bluetooth, Wifi and Data on all day 24/7 (I never turn off my phone). I play a lot of games (NBA Jam, Asphalt 8, GBA emulators) and stream a lot of music (GPM). All stock, with no root. All these post about the S6 battery being bad are so confusing too me.

    Pretty much the same for me. My s6 battery is easily comparable to my old s5. It's also pretty much identical to my iPhone 6 battery life. I consider myself a heavy user as well, though I rarely do any gaming

    Well even if it's true that there are "bad batches", which I'm not so sure, the inconsistency is unacceptable to me. It shouldn't happen.

    It is more battery technology than anything. Just like some phones (even my iPhone 6+) had dead zones where they sat at 100% for a long time which made it look like it wasn't draining but then would rapidly drop through the 90% section till it returned to being stable.

    Just about everyone who reviews this device and countless threads on these and other forums and people are still wondering if there was a "bad batch of phones".

    This device has a mediocre battery, everything else is great.

    That's about the jist of it.

    OK, for me and both of my S6 edge and recently acquired Blue Topaz S6 battery life is very good, so no issues for me, but just to let you know, I just ordered an Unlocked S6 active and is supposed to arrived on Thursday.

    So for those of you who love most of the S6 but think that it has a mediocre battery life, take a look at the S6 active, same great camera and display, same features plus Water, dust and shock resistant on a 3500 mAh battery that has been proven to be the best out there, even over the IPhone 6+ according to some reviews and tests, don't remember the article but according to the test, regular S6 had some 7 hours of SoT with that test and the active lasted 12.5 hours, while it keeps the wireless and fast charging options.

    If you don't mind the looks, it's basically the best Android device out there, in pictures I thought it was too bulky for me, but after seeing it in person and comparing it side by side by side with my S6, I realized that it's like a S6 with an Armor or a thin Otterbox case on it. I ordered one the same day.

    Oh yeah forgot about the active, that's definitely a good alternative but look and feel of the S6 and edge I'm sure is one of the big reasons people opted to buy.

    So if the S6 plus can keep that sexiness with a better battery life, it'll be dang near perfect.
