    So il be getting a s6 in the next week and im wondering what are they like to live with??

    How long does the battery normally last?
    Is the wireless charger worth getting as i do like the sound of it. which chargers faster or chargers better?
    What case do people prefer to use.

    Anymore info like that would be ace il be going from a S3 to S6 so the extra performance would be ace.

    S6 is a great phone overall but battery life was a bit meh. Wireless charging works but is much slower than the stock charger.

    There are a lot of good cases, I like tech21 and speck,but for those on a lower budget then spigen or vrs is fine.

    Everything about the phone is really good but the battery life. Luckily it has quick charge.

    I bought my S6 when it first came out and it's been running great. I recently upgraded to Marshmallow and everything is running so smoothly I haven't had a need to upgrade to the S7. Battery life has been fine for my usage, as I work in an office environment 5 days a week and have a fairly strong cell signal. I also use a Moto 360 smart watch which hasn't affected the battery life of my S6 very much.

    Did you buy it in April 2015? I planned to use it 2 or 3 years but not sure it will be still running smoothly until then.

    I strongly recommend not using the fast charge option for any phone. When it works, it works great. But - there are too many reports of melted and burnt phones. What's your hurry? I'd suggest wireless charging though - don't risk loosening up your USB jack. With wireless chargers at home, work, and in the car it is real easy to toss it on the charger for touch up rather than using rapid charging.

    I don't like using the wireless charger because it heats up the phone so much and I heard that heat degrades the battery. Fast charging doesn't heat up my phone ever since I switched to the aukey quick charge 2.0 adapter so I definitely suggest using that instead of the quick charger that comes with the phone

    Plus wireless charging makes everyone and there mother decide.im the most important person. Call me silly. But constantly putting it down and picking it up seems like a bad idea

    The charger is a odd T shaped white plug that says "fast charge" or something like that on it. If not no big loss I just like the quick charge personaly

    If the charger lists two voltages, I think 5&9V, then it's a fast charger.

    When you plug it in it the phone will tell you if it's a fast charger or not. Forgot to mention that

    Yeah, that's a regular charger, but that's ok. I let my s6 edge run all the way to 0 the other day and it fully charged in about 1 hour 15 minutes.

    I love my fast charger I tend to juice mine on the car on the way to n from work(have n AC plug in my car) and just before I plan to leave anywhere. It's nice to get a good chunk back quickly.

    If I need to charge it and don't care I'll just use a regular charger I have laying around

    The wireless to me was a bit to gimmicky. Nice idea but impractical for myself.

    Battery problems are much less after Marshmallow update. Doze is a Godsend! Download an app like Purify or Greenify to keep those vampire apps in check when not in use. I personally LOVE wireless charging and haven't had a problem with the phone getting too hot. Since the battery does seem to drain faster than we'd all like, I keep it on my wireless pad at work all day.
