can any S7 owner prove that his phone can manage even 7hrs screen on with 4G on and wechat, facebook, twitter, instagram, snapchat, whatsapp and google location reporting all running in the background?
17hrs is a totally nonsensical number!
same as the so-called rating for samsung galaxy note 4 last time.
even with a new battery, it couldn't even last 5hrs with the abovesaid apps running in 4G.
and that was with a 3220mAh battery and lower resolution screen, mind you!
with mobile data on, and facebook, wechat, whatsapp, google location reporting running in the background, i bet it can't even last 6 hours screen on time usage :rolleyes:
Well, without more specific information about the test, you can't really make a conclusion. What was the video? What format? How bright is 100%? How long can S6 play the video at same brightness level? My phone lasts for an entire week without charging under normal usage too. At least as long as I don't define what's "normal usage".
17hours playback in Ultra Power Saving mode with full brightness. Yes! Possible!

And who uses the same phone for 5 years lol
Anonymous, 30 Jan 2016why u play video when ur phone only 1% .. thats why u got only 1 hour playbackQuit being butthurt that was a good joke.
Eldar is washed up. He went down the same hole as Nokia. Anything he ever says means very little. This rumor is impossible anyway. 17?
We buy expensive phones to enjoy every bit of it.
We like to like to be connected with social networks using mobile data or wifi , not all the time but most of the time.
and we also like to enjoy the good bright screen of our expensive mobile.
But What .. If we
have to turn of mobile data or wifi most of the time off .. and
reduce the brightness level of the screen .just to save battery.
Then what is point of buying an expensive mobile..(if we cant enjoy its features).

Galaxy S5, *actually* had an infinite times more battery life. Now all you get is 17 hours, I prefer 5 years (and counting) of battery life...
Eldar Murtazin is well-known in Russia as source of unreliable speculations. Authors should be extremely cautious with him as a reference.
hassn, 30 Jan 2016and after 17 hours burn in happen,s Nah. Yup don't have to burn the phone like you do high quality headphones
That is great news :)
I see the Samsung haters are out in full force as their favourite manufacturers won't be able match this, shame. :)
AnonD-400457, 30 Jan 2016well battery can be non-replacable if its big enough and according the rumors S7 will have 300... moreEven big batteries lose charge eventually. After a year of heavy usage it would be like having 2000 Mah battery...
Also removable batteries frees you of the hassle to charge your phone, you just have one charging while you using the phone and when your battery asks charging you simply swap it with an 100% pre-charged battery. "Zero" waiting time (1 minute actually, that's how much swapping lasts).
Removable batteries are a big deal for multiple reasons. But most of all because a battery is a consumable. Sealing a "consumable" is a sure-fire way to get your phone lose values as time goes by.
