    Post Not getting this "awesome" battery life??

    Not getting this "awesome" battery life?? I meant brightness, too many ideas at once haha. I'm posting actual pictures in a second, and will keep the phone running while I'm at work. It has to do with a Samsung "feature", I've turned off most of them from settings. Next will be...

    Post Why shouldn't you buy a Galaxy S6

    1) It's not difficult to Google or look up YouTube videos on how TouchWiz operates. 2) See #1. 3) Agreed, for some reason the S6 and S6A have a huge drain that limits the screen on time to about a third of what it should be. 4) "...like double-tap to wake or sleep or anything like that and...

    Is 6 hours of SOT supposed to be an achievement on the S6? What's the average time you guys are getting? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Not getting this "awesome" battery life?? Yes, this is due to less CPU usage and videos/movies are not almost entirely white. I looped a couple of YouTube movies and left the S6 Active running all night at 50% brightness with only wifi on. I woke up, 8 or so hours of SOT, and the...

    http://blog.gsmarena.com/samsung-galaxy-s6-active-battery-life-test/ The One X, S3, LG G2, and iPhone 6 & 6S web browsing results were great representations of what I could expect as far as smartphone battery goes. I've had more phones than I can count, but those were the ones I kept the...

    Their web browsing test is a more realistic expectation, which is why I said 12. They got 16 hours, which I don't doubt, but this phone draining comparably to a 4+ year old HTC? Not at all impressed. I have screenshots where I tested their results vs actual daily usage and they were very close...

    That's what I'm talking about. I used to freeze basically all non vanilla processes back in the G2 days with Titanium Backup, how can I freeze the Exchange server? It doesn't show up under "Applications" in settings. Currently on 6.0.1. Sent from my S6 Active

    I'm on a S6 Active, but I realize we all have pretty abysmal battery life. I don't see how you guys are complacent with 3-4 hours of SOT, I used to get 5.5-6 back in the original HTC One X days, and about 4.5-5 if I left data on the whole time. My LG G2 used to get a solid 8-9 hours too...

    How much SOT do you get? I lose about 6% per hour if I watch videos on wifi, however I lose 1% every 6-7 minutes if I'm using my phone for anything else. What system process is killing the battery? There's no reason I shouldn't get over 12 hours of SOT from daily usage. Sent from my S6 Active

    Post [Bounty 2/23/16 $1000] ATT S6 Active root

    Is that why ATT forced me to update to 5.1.1? I bought the phone and 24 hours later it updated on its own. Sent from my Galaxy S6 Active

    Post Not getting this "awesome" battery life??

    Same here. I "upgraded" from a 6S on the premise of much better battery life and waterproof without the need of a LifeProof case. So far I'm getting about the same, maybe less life out of it than my iPhone. I've been out of the Android game for almost 2 years, what can I do to fix this? Based...
