Why does my GS6 battery life drain so quickly? + Question Answer

First let's start off with my question.
- Why does my GS6 battery life drain so quickly? I charged it twice today. I use fast charge so it charges quickly. Please explain. (PS: I use it all the time, but I did on my other phone to and I charged it like once per 4 days.)

Now my question answer.
- If your GS6 has a weird swipe to unlock instead of fingerprint and such just know you have to go into the smart lock stuff and make sure you have everything turned off their. No places and no devices. Nothing. Then try it. It should work.

Can you post a screenshot for the battery usage stats? Can be found in settings>battery>battery usage. After taking a screenshot on that page, press the graph and take a screenshot on it too.

Does your phone get warm often? Do you like draining the battery to 0-20% then charging it up back to full? Do you have apps that is related with facbook like : facebook,messenger,instagram and other social media app?
Try turning off sync,bluetooth,location if you dont use it.

Guessing it's because of the freaking TouchWiz? :D
By the way, this is not the first time i heard of this OS having bug down the battery.
Have you considered using a custom rom?

What phone did you have that you charged every 4 days?
What version of Android is on your device? Was it always like this or recently started?

Im sure you can disable "Fast Charging" somewhere if its too fast for you.. and NO, it doesnt drain faster.... The only consequnce of Fast Charging.. is that it lessens the number of charge cycles the battery can take... but youll have sold your phone by then.. so.. but switching to standard charging will probably take about 3 - 4 hours... but if you want to know real pain of slow charging.. buy an Xperia .. OMG, thats suicidal slow :)
