I've had the phone for 2 months now. I can say if you switch off 3G/LTE with normal usage the battery lasts for 4 days. The camera takes great pictures. It looks nice. Works fast. The phone charges extremely fast, you get about 2% battery each minute of charging. In car wireless charging works fine. On the down side the lack of memory card slot and replacable battery is a bit of inconvinience. The 2550 mAh battery is rather small for this fast CPU.
But I can honestly say it is one of the best phones out there.
I was an android user, from Nexus, Galaxy S4 to LG G3, then I switched to iOS, iPhone 5s, all I can say is simplicity at its best! No lags, no heating issues, no forced shutdown, no lagging apps. Battery back up is superb, could last a day with data on, and playing games like clash of clans and marvel champions. Actually, I'm thinking of getting the Galaxy S6, BUT, am afraid of the shitty Android OS laggs, and of course touchwiz. However, I'm really curious about the power camera of the S6, but definitely I won't ditch my iPhone 5s, unless, I'll get the iPhone 6s, then I can buy later on the S6. iPhone 5s, or should I say, the iOS, really really gives me harmony of a smartphone.

scorpio, 23 Nov 2015Gee with so many high end phones when do you get time to use them all and how do you decide wh... moreI do. My iPhone 5s is my main phone, Blackberry Classic is my second in command. I honestly love using these two the most. Both really come off very business-like if used properly. My bigger screen droids and Blackberry Z30 are more for media, FB, IG, Vine, Twitter, YouTube and stuff like that. I know the other user said "he may not own them all, probably works at a phone shop", which is cool haha but if you would like to know, I got a plan with T-Mobile in 2014 that is 5 lines for $110.00 a month, I have my team of droids, iPhones and Blackberry team all connected and simply swap sim cards. It's pretty cheap and a good way to be able to use them all as I please

Hi. Plz plz answer. What things should i do for the best battery usage? Cuz i think now it dosnt use the battery normal. When i lock the screen after 3 hours it uses 25 percent without doing anything with phone. Seems like some apps are running in background always. But it shouldn't be! A flagship should understand when i lock the phone, it should at last use 2 percent per hour. I just close and close all the running apps. But steel the same. Sth maybe not visible is running i dont know! How to make the battery better? Apps? Doing sth in setting? Tell me all. Really tnx.

I'm planning to sell it and g... moreits quite obvious for a phone having 64 bit arch and octa core processor to heat up quite often , due to the innumerable active apps and cached processes....so i advise you to either clear RAM after opening an app or install Clean Master and Cool Down your CPU..... Clean Master will automatically notify you about the heating up of your phone's CPU...
Anonymous, 20 Nov 2015S6 is great but touch wiz is ultra bad comparing to for example htc sense.Other than the slight lagginess in Touchwiz can you list down all the bad thing about Touchwiz? It is by far one of the best UI available compare to others that stick to stock android like interface and have less features but more or less the same high end price like S6. Example, HTC One A9. Even worst, most chinese brand don't even have apps drawer which make the homescreen cluttered and unorganized.
Romano, 20 Nov 2015Great phone but poor battery life haha.. seriously GREAT AND AWESOME phone!! But to be fair, I... moreNew users usually play around with their phone too much. That drains battery life fast. Give it a month or two. You get used to it and not want to touch it too much. Many asked why the battery go down so fast. Before asking that, ask yourself if you are using it too much.

I have the older Galaxy S5 and am able to take out my SIM card if I want to change
my SIM card to a Continental European SIM card which is nice and easy for me.
And with the Galaxy S5 I can change my battery for a new one quite easily.
I have been informed that the Galaxy S6 is all glued up at the back cover and one
cannot take out or exchange the SIM card or battery like I can with my Galaxy S5.
It's a great shame that Samsung are doing the same SCAM as the iPhones by
glueing up the back.....it's just another scam where these companies can get more
money out of their customers as if they haven't made enough money from all of us
My S6 is heating up a lot. Is there some problem with my device? I'm planning to sell it and get another phone if it continues like this.
Wondering, 18 Nov 2015i dont know to choose either samsung galaxy s6 or sony xperia z5 :-/Go for z5
Got this phone recently. Good device.. Battery life is short in general, but have fast charge, so not a major. I downloaded a theme which is totally black and white. With high frequentcy usage, my s6 normally lasts one day and a bit (phone is on 24x7). So the AMOLED definitely shows its advantages.
Great phone but poor battery life haha.. seriously GREAT AND AWESOME phone!! But to be fair, I use the GS6 a LOT and cant get enough of it!! It is a very powerful and smooth phone, and display is bright and beautiful so I can see why battery drains so fast plus the batteries on my iPhone 6, HTC One M9, LG G4, and my Blackberry Z10 and Q10 also drain incredibly fast. I find that my Blackberry Z30 and Classic, and the iPhone 5s have a way stronger battery life. Despite that, the GS6 is just great!!
