    I don't. I think that's good advice. Even when I didn't have Clean Master, my battery was still s**t. And if we have to do what Anti the Gamer suggests to preserve battery -- turning off auto brightness, auto update, etc. -- then it's a step in the wrong direction for Samsung.

    Anyways, I did a hard reset. We'll see how it holds up.
    Considering that the S6 on auto brightness can push the screen upto 720 nits vs most phones of its category can only do 440ish, there is a huge difference in battery consumption with auto brightness turned on. Auto brightness by default has always been a bigger battery drain then manual for years now, so it is wise to mostly use manual on any phone.

    Sadly US carriers like T-Mobile in this case sometimes add software that can hurt battery life like the wifi calling software installed (and if used). Also both Verizon and Sprint have both gone to a single radio instead of a dual design of the past phones and sometimes VoLTE can cause issues if you are in an area that is not fully updated with newer antennas...
    You'll still have lousy service on other new phones if you suffer from bad cell service that could be causing battery issues.

    This is my AT&T S6 that doesn't suffer from added software like T-Mobile or poor service like that could happen on some other carriers. This is with 3 hours of gaming, an hour of YouTube, and some web.
