    Hey guys,

    I just bought my s6 and I'm totally impressed. Apart from battery life! But hey it's weekend and I'm absolutely hammering my phone, so i can't expect anything better, right?

    I'll put some screen shots soon, but basically yesterday my battery lasted around 9.5 hours with 5.1 hrs SoT. Is that acceptable? Most of the time i used my phone for browsing, Facebook, around 1hr talking to friends on viber and a bit of music.

    Totally acceptable, that's good longevity for the S6 when it comes to SoT. Judicious use of screen brightness can help stretch it as well. I only drop to 4 hours or less (with similar use to your description) if I'm playing system intensive games (Hearthstone and the like).

    I have never seen more than 3 hrs SOT. Not sure how people get over 3. I think I could get more if I went in to airplane mode and watched a downloaded movie but that's it.

    I average 5-6 hours usage with 2.5-3 hrs SOT. If I don't touch my phone for 6 hours I can get 12 hrs usage with 2 or 3 after I pick it up for the first time.

    So if you are getting 5 with normal usage then you are lucky
