    I'm trying to figure out why the battery drains so much when taking it off the charger and prevent it from happening. When I took it off the charger it immediately jumped down to 98 and then within a minute jumped down to 95. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to prevent this from happening?

    Its probably updating or syncing when you take it off the charger or if you switch airplane mode off it will also start syncing and you will get a battery hit.

    I still have not figured out how to take my phone off the charger and have it say 100% 99.99% of the time when I take the phone off the charger it immediately says 98%

    That's really odd. Mine usually says 100 for the first few minutes then drops to 99

    Don't ever take it off the charger. That way, it will stay at 100% all the time!

    I'm sure the guy was just joking with you so calm down. You certainly won't get many responses with an attitude like that. Anyway, have you tried rebooting into recovery and wiping cache, then allowing your battery to completly drain and charge to full with the screen off?

    It's not the first time they have joked towards me in a thread where I was seeking help and it gets annoying. It's not an "attitude". It's fed up of constantly being joked at by the same person in multiple threads.

    Yes I have tried wiping the cache partition. Yesterday I drained my phone completely and charged it completely. Do I need to take it off the charger before I switch it back on?

    That would make sense but it also does it when I charge the phone with it turned on too :/ Thanks for the advice though

    Don't take it personal. I do it to everyone. Besides, it's just to put a smile on your face and say "smartass".

    But OK. I'll stop responding.

    No its my fault. I have had one of the worst weeks of my life and everything at the moment is annoying me. I overreacted. For that I apologize

    But you also know that when I think (or know) I have an answer for you, I respond in kind and give you the best answer possible. But like I said, it's not personal. Please don't take it that way.

    And yeah, I know the feeling of horrible weeks and how it can make you snap on a whim. It'll be OK though, you'll get through it.

    Trust me I know. Mostly I love your posts because I have the same kind of sarcastic sense of humour that you do. Everything is just getting to me at the moment. Even the smallest of things. And thank you so much for understanding. It's appreciated

    No problem and your welcome!

    Still not sure what your problem is. It's most likely just that your battery is out of calibration. Run it to 0%. Charge it. Then unplug and turn it on. Do this every once in a while....as doing it too much can damage your battery.

    I was talking to someone else on a different thread and they are having the exact same issue as me. It goes to 98% as soon as I take it off the charger as though it never got to 100%. Then it drains to 96% within two minutes. After that it drains normally.

    Tbh it's getting to a point now where I'm hoping for a more stable S7. And hoping Samsung learned their lesson and put a bigger battery in...

    I believe it was my thread, I was having the same issue. I thought it might have been an app I downloaded. Can't remember the name, but it was a Samsung app that stored grocery store reward card barcodes so you didn't have to carry all the physical cards. I deleted it, and did a soft reset. Seemed to fix the rapid drain on the battery. Able to take it off the charger and stay at 100% for a few

    I'm starting to think I have a faulty battery. I NEVER see 100% when I take it off the charger. It immediately reads 98 then immediately reads 96

    The app I uninatalled was called beepngo, a Samsung app. I don't know if it was responsible, but it started happening right after it was installed.

    How do you put the phone into safe mode? I want to see if it does the same thing while coming off the charger in safe mode because that will tell me if it's an app or not

    OK safe mode made absolutely no difference. It did the exact same thing

    I just got off the phone with Samsung customer support. They suggested I backup my data with Samsung smart switch and factory reset my device. They said if it still doesn't make a difference that they will have it sent away cause it could be a hardware issue. I also told them how it's absolutely ridiculous having a 2550mah battery on a quad HD display. They used the whole line of how it is supposed to be a different form of quad HD that consumes less power but they agreed with me that the battery was probably too small. Nice to see even Samsung admitting that now. I said that if the battery is the same size on the S7 when it comes out that I will not be getting it. They said that the specs for the S7 weren't known yet and I said yes I know that it is supposed to be coming out in March but that the battery life is so frustrating on the S6 that I'm already dreaming about the S7

    Edit: well that made absolutely no difference. It's still doing the exact same thing. I'm going to wait for 5.1 to come out from my phone company at the end of August and flash my phone with its firmware and if I'm still experiencing the same issue I'll be taking my phone in then to get it sent away to Samsung to get fixed
