I think (hope) that the Always On Display won't cost quite that much. It's supposed to go off if you turn the phone over or put it in your pocket, i.e. the proximity sensor detects something. Although it might put a stop to Marshmallow dozing.
this is really funny to see ... how come that a samsung top of the line best ever made according to sammy fans is giving such a poor stand by time only for having a few pixels turn on ..... waooooo it is amoled so this should be a hair of the head .... not all the hair by dropping the battery this way ... id say sammy dont try to match lg in this deparment G5 surely will post a betetr management being ips display ....may be may be overall batetry could be less but atleast you could say that u can have always on ...on like it should be and swap a battery if u run out of it.... and thena a lot of sammy user will say that it is a useless feature that they dont need it ..dont make me laugh
People saying they want 720p screens. No thanks.
I enjoy 1440p screens and looking forward to 4K on phones. And those complaining about battery life... Does LG, Sony or Apple's last longer? NOOOO. LG is the worst when it comes on to battery life.
AadiRizvi, 14 Mar 2016then i guess you havent been an owner of a Sony phone. Go buy and use it for two days and you'... moreYour living in the past.
Sony only had great battery life for Z2 and Z3. (90 hours endurance)
Every flagship after had mediocre battery life. (Except the compact variant)
Anonymous, 13 Mar 2016Sony's battery suck big time. I'll take s7 over Sony's phone any time.then i guess you havent been an owner of a Sony phone. Go buy and use it for two days and you'll know.
Bunyip22, 13 Mar 2016Not true, batteries degrade a lot faster than that with heavy use. Fast charging accelerates t... moreAfter experiencing 10000 mAh extended battery on my Galaxy Note, I confirmed my real continuous personal average use - 18 hours, with 4 GB of LTE, 8 hours Screen On Time daily usage. No need to charge before going home. All these parameters can only be matched with a 6000mAh without extra charging for the day. But will still be be draining to less than 10%. Deep battery draining lower than 20% contribute to degradation.
Best solution is to have a big battery. This is why I view removable battery system as an option for extended battery. Best practice is keeping the charge between 20 to 80% for better power hold, and life longevity of the battery.
I wish the Note 6 will come with a removable battery.

That won't be the case if the Z5 comes with a different soc and android 6.0. Furthermore samsung isn't capable of making good standby times out of their phones when compared to sony. Surely their screen on times are better than the Z5 but it means that you can't leave your samsung phones left uncharged overnight after a day of heavy use.
Nokian, 13 Mar 2016I'm a Nokia Lumia 1520 user. The phone boasts a 3400maH battery which is good to go for 2 days... moreExactly Man,Even after this long time still my Nokia Phones Battery Backup,Camera can outclass so called New Days Flagships of samsung,sony,apple.Even 4 year Old Lumia 1020 can outclass any big brands in case of battery and camera.Hope Nokia Comeback with a bang...
Azrack, 14 Mar 2016Learned a lesson:
Larger batteries is not proportionate to increase battery life.
Correct; it costs a manufacturer extra $$$ when they choose the most power efficient parts (with same or near performance), or they can opt for super crazy power efficiency and not "play the spec sheet numbers game".
Unfortunately without testing, we the consumer have to go by "the numbers" often being misled.
Real world performance is what matters.
I have a tablet that cost more money than some people think it should.
I KNOW that the manufacturer opted for longevity and power efficiency, with parts that cost noticeably more to include.
Not saying that the cheapest products are bad (they often have 'exceptional' "bang for buck")... -I am saying, however, many a time, 'you get what you pay for'.
Spec sheets should be posted with a short blurb highlighting any specific design implementations that are likely to matter more, to we the consumers, than just raw numbers.
Better camera sensors often have less megapixels, batteries can have a range of cell designs, screens can implement all sorts of layer technologies, and everything from building materials to companies environmental impact just don't matter when we compare 'just the specs'.
Consumers who buy based on spec only are the most likely to get hurt, when buying so blindly.
Like the yellow belt martial art student; a little bit of knowledge can be a dangerous thing.
Personally I like high speed memory and bus designs, faster storage flash ram, and highly optimised designs (with anything that can be done in hardware, not software, wherever possible).
Great aerial implementations etc...
These things just are not on a spec sheet.. And likely matter more than being 100mhz faster and having a gigabyte more space to play with.
But braggers will be braggers, and by their very nature, are very vocal!
My seven months old Note5 can hardly be up and running for 5 hours with a 100% full charge. When I had Note3 and Note4 I could easily buy and replace a new battery which could hardly cost me $25. So I could use the phone for at least one year. With Note5 which I really like and it's a powerhouse there is no option to change the battery. So after seven months I am considering to exchange my Note5 with either S7 Edge or LG5.
The Note5 battery sucks!!!

And I don't recall generalising, I just gave evidence against the statement that Sony excels on battery optimisation.
So Samsung, you're telling me your phone of 2 years ago with a smaller battery still has better battery life than your current flagship? When are these companies gonna realize a dead phone is useless if your battery is dead. Super quick charging is useless if there is nowhere to plug in. Give use a day of hard usage and then worry about the rest. Give me a 720p screen. Give us an option to throttle the processor down when we need to conserve energy. Fix the core problem. A beautiful screen and 8 core processor won't do shit if the battery is dead.
