When you sleep, does your phone sleep, or does it stay up all night and crunch 1s and 0s? Rate this thread to express how you deem the speed at which the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6's battery drains under standby conditions. A higher rating indicates that when the phone is not in use, the battery drains minimally.

Then, drop a comment if you have anything to add!

I'm getting horrible standby time dropped 60% in 14 hours with almost no use. Where are those setting mine look different.

Found the settings, but mine are all set right. Doing a full charge now and gonna see if I can find anything using battery, but I suspect the tablet is never going into deep sleep

I found that there's a bug when charging with the keyboard case closed around the tablet.

If the case was closed and I put the tablet on the charger then take it off the charger. I would find it had lost 40% the next morning.
If I open the case & close the case after removing the charger I would only loose 1~2%.

What I'm thinking is that "Fast Charging ...%" that is visible during charging (even with the case closed) sets the screen to active.
However, it seems that removing the charger with the case closed, the tablet isn't picking up that the case is closed and keeps the screen somehow active.

(That's why, opening & closing the case resets that state and the tablet goes into proper idle/sleep mode again with the screen state in off mode.)

Tested it around 3 times now and each time it seems to be this exact issue.

Mine dropped 2% of battery per hour during standby with no apps run in the background.

+1 on this. I had an S3 and unplugged overnight I'd drop almost 50%. As a test I barely used the tablet for 4 days but didn't charge it and 4 days later I still had a good 30% charge left.

That's horrible battery life. I have barely touched my s4 since I got this and its dropped 20 percent. This tablet dropped 20 percent sitting for 8 hours today. Looking at battery usage it only shows 1% device idle and nothing else. I'm going to return and swap for different tablet. Hopefully I just got a bad battery, but it seems prevelent.

Ok, so that answers that. I returned my tab s6 and exchanged for new one and got keyboard case. The new one has been sitting all day and is still at 100 % with slight use. The old one you could watch the battery drop and on standby it would lose 20 % overnight. I have all the same apps installed and all the same apps disabled. Something was wrong with that tab.
