The battery life on a Samsung Galaxy S6 in the first 24H

As the Samsung Galaxy S6 (Edge) was announced, the biggest concern about the device seems to be the much smaller battery compared to other flagship devices. It only has a 2600mAh battery and it isn’t removable either. In the past few weeks there were some reports that the battery life of the Samsung Galaxy S6 (Edge) is one of the downsides of the device, but are those reports accurate?

The battery life we’re now showing is just after the first day of using the phone. So they can be different to the days that are coming. It’s good to know that the screenshots below were captured a few hours before the battery was fully drained, but they are fully accurate.

This is how the battery stats are looking like on a Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge after its first full charge:

  • Total battery life: 14 hours 11 minutes
  • Screen On Time: 3 hours 07 minutes
  •              Full brightness: 1 hour 59 minutes
  •              Screen battery used: 25 percent
  • Video streaming: 1 hour 11 minutes
  • Gaming: 36 minutes
  • Phone Calls: 28 minutes
  • Top 3 Battery App Usage:
  •             Screen: 25 percent
  •             Facebook: 15 percent
  •             Twitter: 11 percent

But, as this is a battery life of someone else, you can get different results than we are now showing  you. All the data on this device is copied from a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 with Lollipop running on it. The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge only lasted 14 hours on a battery charge, the Note 4 is usually lasting 18-22 hours, with largely the same apps running.

The first thing you may notice is that the first ten percent is draining really fast. But after the fast drain the battery level seems to be stabilizing. It is a strange occurrence that many people reported, but this maybe due to the device being new.

What does 15 hours really mean? Essentially when you’re looking to a normal working day, the phone will last the full day (around 7AM to 7PM). With moderate to heavy usage, but this is still based on his first day and it’s widely known that the battery life does suffer over time.
