I just was seeing what kind of interest there is to having some battery reviews/tests conducted by me, I did a whole bunch for the Samsung Epic 4G years back and some for my recently traded Stratosphere II (RIP last of the great keyboard phones....), I'm looking for the best battery life possible and coming from a fat battery on my Epic and Stratosphere II the S5 is clearly lacking in the battery life department.

I was wondering if anyone wanted me to do tests on their batteries new or old (the newer the better though, for fairness and the best possible comparison). I'll eventually have up my S5's battery, aged as old as my S5 is (unknown really since I bought it off Swappa but we could see how much the cell has degraded and how much capacity has been retained)

Feel free to check out my review page from the Epic in my signature to get a gist of how I usually conduct em!

How would you like me to measure the time and from what minimum battery percentage?

Usually I test the batteries externally with my usb battery tester, just as a literal indicator of the discrete capacity of the battery, since there are too many kernel, rom, and setting configurations to accurately judge the best battery life/charging scenario on the phone. The battery capacity itself is not a variable so if it increases then the battery life (and charging duration) will increase by whatever percentage of extra capacity that battery gains over that one it's replacing.

I usually get between 4-5 hours of screen on time at work because of not the greatest reception, but on weekends when I'm mainly home with a strong Wi-Fi signal, I've been getting about 6 hours of SOT on lollipop. Battery life is better on lollipop than 4.4.4 for me.
