Yes, indeed, with Always on Display the battery drains pretty well...
But without Always on Display and Power Saving activated, one morning I pulled it from charge(it was 100%) and after 2 hours when going to work, it was still 100%(it sat idle all the time).
73hr vs 80hr is crapy improvement. Shame i had almost made up my mind and was expecting near 100hrs edurance considering marshmallow, bigger battery and suposedly better optimised chip and display than previous model. If u do browsing alot more than video playback then this endurance will fall really quickly. I can bet that sd820 variant will have better battery life. They made it seem huge switching to 3000 battery but in reality they knew that there chipset wasnt efficient / optimized enough for a smaller battery to last long on browsing. 3000 is giving 10hrs browsing. Imagine 8hrs browsing with if it had ~2600 battery . Dont know why they keep sticking to damn 2k resolution. Same is the case with LG. yeah my note 4 display is good but Even now LG G PRO or any good 1080p 5.5 inch display makes my heart pound. I bet s7 edge will have better battery life coz paying 700$ for s7 doesnt qualify for 90+hrs endurance rating
waiting for s7 edge review. i will then base speculations on note 6 on that one.
MY Samsung galaxy S5 had a problem.It was really fast and smooth when i bought it.But after the lollipop update,things started to go haywire.The problem was really poor ram management.If i listened to music player while Browsing web or chatting,the music player would stop like in 30 secs-1 min.same thing happens when i listen to music from lockscreen or just in homescreen which is really annoying.it happens to other apps when app is not in the display(When you lock the screen after sometimes it stops and have to be reloaded when unlocking).And it was okay if the fix came in space of a month or so but samsung is notoriously slow with the updates.I waited miserable 8 months and update never came.
Then i decided to upgrade to S6 because i used features of touchwiz all the time and the problem was solved to an extend.But the music app still closes if i open a heavy app with it (gmaps etc).But then i heard problem is really solved to a great extend with marshmallow update and waited for Global rollout(it seems that Global rollout in samsung terms means certain markets).Next i was going for Galaxy s7 but reviews show the ram management problem still exist(but only to a smaller extend).Samsung has been painfully slow with the updates recently and i dont wanna wait months for update if something goes wrong.MY next phone is Gonna be nexus 6P or any other phone with regular updates so that if anything goes wrong its fix should be available soon.
What do you guys suggest?(I dont care about brand name or anything)

iphone 6s battery life talk time under11hour
that is too... moreAm feeling so ashamed after your "precious" comment.
We will imediately stop making phones,thank you.
It will increase alot after some update same as s6 last year nd will be more better in performance
ALWAYS ON = always charge :(((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((
I picked not, because of battery life and missing IR blaster but higher price. Lower price without IR blaster is reasonable.
"The Galaxy S7 has a 3,000mAh battery, which is the most that 5-inch (or thereabout) smartphones have these days"
Oh reallly? Xiaomi Mi 4c has 3080 mAh and 5" screen - so what you wrote just isn't true.
both Talk time Video playback are doing good but Web browsing is little below Average
for endurance rate still improve from s6 73 hour ( s7 80 hour)
vasilisA3, 13 Mar 2016The always on option without any screen activation had 49 hours endurance? The Always On funct... moreI belive they didn't which means that the aod should fare better against other results(they test standby time with the screen turned off)
SaRPeR, 13 Mar 2016Battery life might get better with an update. Remember S6 ? It's battery life was shorter befo... moreIt will get worse. Batteries degrade with time. Even if an update makes better use of the resources, the battery would be degraded by then. Maybe not enough, but it's only a matter of time. Unless you're willing to buy a new phone in less than two years don't buy phones with sealed batteries, it's a ploy.
