    i did a factory reset but it doesnt help idk wtf is going on..
    OK, so now you're down to a hardware problem, something your carrier did to the 5.1.1 release, where you are using it and therefore a signal issue, or your perception of what heavy drain means. Hardware is unlikely. What were the results of the airplane mode test? What carrier do you have? What do you mean by heavy drain - what percentage drop in an hour with no use? Gsam Battery monitor will tell you battery use per hour.

    I used to leave my battery off of the charger at 8 PM at night and by the next morning it might be about 96% charged. This morning it was 7%. I have not added any new apps since the 5.1.1 update. I guess my real question is why they don't have a way of turning all of the apps off in standby mode and only have the phone working for those that want that. I also use bluetooth to connect to my Panasonic Home Phone. I think that the amount of people who have had this problem is a lot larger than has been reported. I have had my S6 for over 5 months and no problem. Suddenly after an update, I am having battery problems. Is there an app that will allow you to turn things off when you shut down the screen? It is getting frustrating since I have had that happen for at least the past week.
    Doze will do that.

    ok bro i run the test with airplane mode it helps a bit,without airplane mode its drops to 2-3% an hour so is it the carrier which is causing it?

    Home+Vol Up+Power all together at the same time. Let go when you see the Galaxy S6 boot image apear. You will see a litter android on screen. After about 30-45 seconds the recovery menu will pop up.

    Use Vol up and Vol down to navigate.
    Use power to choose/confirm selection.

    If your battery drain is 2-3% per hour when not in airplane mode, then you have no problem since that is normal.

    bro teach me how to do the cache partion erase
    Just Google samsung s6 wipe cache

    First power off your phone completely by holding the power button then selecting Power Off. Once off, press power, volume up, and home all together, not sequentially. Release the buttons when you see the Recovery Booting text. Then use volume down/up keys to select Wipe Cache Partition, then press the power button briefly to select it. In a few seconds it finishes and goes back to the menu. Select Reboot System Now, and briefly press power to select. The reboot may take awhile as it needs to recompile all of the apps.

    This is how I do it, do not release any of the buttons.

    Power off

    Press and hold home, then press and hold volume up, then press and hold power. Then it will boot into recovery.

    You are holding all 3 buttons down at the same time.

    Do you think it could be a Verizon problem? My phone used to last all day but now it's almost dead by lunch. It's weird but it only does it on the wifi at work, not at home. But at work I also have normal phone service but at home I only have one bar. I've wiped the cache and deleted all unnecessary apps. I've also disabled everything I can. Usually after a battery drain the cell radio will say it has used 20-25% of the battery. Maybe if I didn't use wifi at work? I haven't tried airplane mode at work yet.

    This exact thing happened to me. It was great before the update and it's driving me insane. I already tried clearing cache and still nothing. I have Verizon if that matters... Cell Standby and Android Services show as the biggest drains.

    Try spending the day without wifi turned on while you are at work. See if that helps you any.

    What is your actual signal strength? Not how many bars but actual xxdB signal strength.
