I would expect to lose 1% or less battery life per hour if I disabled mobile data & wifi on any flagship Android. With wifi on it should lose less than 2% per hour. Bob could have a faulty battery, but it's likely a software issue. Bob could factory reset it if he can't figure out what is eating his battery. Then if the issue persisted, he could get an official Samsung S5 battery for $24. Bob could do lots of things but he has a 6+ so his S5 gets no love.

You'll get both back+front film protectors. Really high quality, keeping a smooth touch feeling and very durable against daily wearing.
I'm aiming at a back cover as transparent/slim as possible like official ones from Samsung because i'll buy S6 Edge.

Definitely needs some troubleshooting done to it. You shouldn't lose more than 2% per hour when not in use, and with mobile data and wifi off at night (like bob said he does), I would expect to lose 1% or less per hour. Looks like it would cost about $24 for an official battery from Amazon for the S5. Or he could swap with a fellow S5 user for a couple days if he has any friends IRL.

I didn't use my phone much today, unpluggued it last night before going to bed so that it was 100% around 1AM i think, currently i have 72% : Did a few calls, sent/received a few whatsapp messages, showed a mate S6's official presentation on youtube. Made 2 videos and sent them on whatsapp then on my dropbox with LTE, checked my emails a quite few times and had bluetooth enabled for my Gear Fit. This is typical for a S5.

I used to be a Samsung fan, but no more. They are fond of abandoning their flagships when it comes to OS updates.

I was hoping for a metal back cuz I would totally rock the S6 with no case, but with a glass back I'm thinking I probably would need a case. Then again, the front glass isn't going to be covered so why bother covering the back? Tough choice for me.

It's all about wakelocks (see: http://forum.xda-developers.co...?t=1827676)/ I wouldn't expect someone like you to be smart enough to go to Settings -> Battery and see what process is using way more battery than it should, but that is one thing you COULD do. This is a personal problem with however you're using the S5. It is NOT a good example of battery life that the device is capable of. The S5 can easily go 48 hours if you aren't playing games on it and if you don't screw it up however you screwed it up.

Anonymous, 05 Mar 2015Lack of a memory card slot may make this long awaited buy a no go for me.Im more upset about the battery. On my s4 i had to change two. I dont trust sammy with their batteries.
bob , 05 Mar 2015in day to day usage there is a big diference then this tests And so protocols are needed to get a general idea of a device.
Because everyone has his/her ways, habits, apps, settings, network carrier, environment etc.. So what is true for somebody won't be for another.
Personaly, i don't use note series but as far as i know i've never obtained a better battery life on any smartphones i've owned than with my galaxy S5.
I don't know anyone close enough to me who got an iphone 6+ to compare in real life.
And just like you, not counting non-smartphones, but i'm close to 20 or 25 smartphones i have/owned (currently i have 8 left here).
Lack of a memory card slot may make this long awaited buy a no go for me.
