    Yep, they should be giving you at least a shout out. Sometimes the internet sucks.

    But let's face it, you did a great job on that video.

    Plus, take in consideration that he has mentioned before that he has very bad signal and he is waiting to get to his work for a normal day comparison. Take a look at the Signal, he is at 3G not even 4G (or LTE like it's known on the Americas) that it was also considered to be more trouble for the phones than the 4G.

    but we should not forget that the Galaxy s6 Active has the same screen resolution, older beefier SoC, 3500mAh...
    And it is now considered by various well knOwn reviewers, as the king of battery life in all smartphone history...

    No way the cpu is beefier.

    I won't comment on the battery life as I don't get those great SOT numbers with any Android phone.

    What I mean is that with my usage and network etc I always don't get anything near the battery life that is reported elsewhere.

    If it last a day in my use I am happy

    It also takes most batteries a few full charges to "break in". My Note 5 battery gradually got better after the first few days.

    Strong signal, optimized phone and a break in period all add to a strong battery life.

    Haha I'm a self-confessed tech geek and find comparisons between brand new Qualcomm and Samsung CPU architectures interesting

    I hope you enjoy the phone! I'll keep an eye on this thread. Will be really cool to get your opinion on battery once you've had enough time to form an opinion.

    I never see more than 3 hours of SOT on MY Droid Turbo 2 which has the same size battery. I for the life of me can't figure out how Motorola achieves such a low number. And I have my screen at less than 50% brightness.
    I know what you mean. I have the original Droid Turbo with a 3900 mAH battery, and I rarely see more than 3 hrs SOT. And if I play a game for 20 minutes i'm down at least 10%.

    It sounds like either you have radio drain problems or you phone is never going into Deep Sleep. I would venture it will get to more stable SoT in the next week. Or you have a configuration problem.

    That seems about right for non US carrier version (25GB). The US carrier versions tend to be over 1GB less free to the user due to bloat.

    Can you talk about the Always on Screen? What shows up on there, etc? Can you select notifications from the screen?

    Wooow! That box/packaging is so reminiscent of the Nokia Lumias': nice materials and box designs. (even teh cutouts for the instructions "pocket").

    I think we need to wait for some battery life results once his usage pattern stabilizes and he gets a better signal.

    Already mentioned that you can set it to show a clock or a month view of the calendar (no event info). Only Samsungs apps (phone, messaging and email) will show notification icons on it.

    Now wait a minute, do those screenshots of the battery life mean that the battery dropped by 35% in only 1h45 on screen time??

    So the 100% would only make you through 5h15 on screen time...

    This is not that good for 3600mAh!
    But that was also over a 10 hour period, which would equate to 30 hours. And it shows he ran some benchmarks. Looks to me like this thing will get 7-8 hours sot over a 16-18 hour day. That's really impressive
