    Hey guys, I got my GS6 a little over 2 months already and the more longer I'm owning it the more I'm getting more fearful of the battery.

    I'm basically getting 10% an hour when checking email manually and Instagram/streaming music.

    Way less then that if I game a little or start watching anime/YouTube.

    I don't know if I'm doing something wrong so I'm gonna list everything I can that I have enabled/disabled and running


    All the Verizon Apps that are disable-able
    Default SMS app
    Google Music
    S Voice
    Milk Video

    I am running Nova Launcher, I keep an eye out for apps that stay in ram when not in use and usually replace them or just get rid of them all together.

    I can't seem to really understand what's with the phone. maybe because I came from an Xperia Z1 Compact and that battery was lasting me 2 days I guess?

    Turn off WiFi if you don't need it. That's the #1 battery killer on this phone.

    Disable ok google, google location history and that flipboard wall thing, then set gps to network and wifi and then in network uncheck HD voice. Also if you do not use it, turnoff Google now, set you screen brightness to 20-30%'or use auto.

    Lastly, disable any gestures you are not using and use dark themes for any apps,that support black.

    Silly, yes I agree, pay for a phone that does all these great things and then turn it all off just to be able to make it through a day
