Qnov, 13 Jul 2016Do you try it before comment?I've already seen a 15% drop in battery efficiency in my wife's S7 Edge after 2 months.
Qnov, 13 Jul 2016Do you try it before comment?I changed a set of three batteries on average 20 months, despite cycling them in order. They can only hold some 60% from their original usage times. You DO NOT just trust the counter that tells you 100% every charge.
My wife's S7 Edge's battery performance longevity is about 10-15% less after 2 months.
I currently use a Zerolemnon 10,000mAh, and after 6 hours screen on time, 3GB of LTE data used on a 16-hour stretch for the day, I'm usually 40% of battery power left. That's even better practice not to have the battery do deep discharge as it lessens the number of cycle lives of your battery. According to my research, if you keep doing discharges till you battery is empty, or even below 20%, you have some 300 to 500 cycles. But if you do just use 50% and charge again, every time, you can get as much as over 1,000 life cycles.
It just means you need to keep charging most of the time if you want to prolong your battery cycles. If you maintain your charge above 75%, you can get over 2,000 life cycles. You can read all these at battery university dot com.
AnonD-317621, 13 Jul 2016Nope. They are the same. They both so degrade, especially when often charging twice in a day. Do you try it before comment?
Dual heatpipes, 13 Jul 2016A Great sealed battery is better than a normal removable battery.Nope. They are the same. They both so degrade, especially when often charging twice in a day.
Going back to this thread, in case any of the GSM mods reads this, I am very unsatisfied with current battery life of smartphones, all of them. One day or two days is possible now if you don't use a phone, I think what most people mean (and me surely) is a day or two of USAGE. As in screen on time when doing average tasks with some breaks.
Anonymous, 12 Jul 2016And sony fanboys want battery to last only 2 hours. :)Why would someone want a battery lasts 2 hour? one day is perfect choice or to be more accurate 16 hours with heavy usage , something else next time when you want to lie say something believable, hopeless (-_-).

Anonymous, 11 Jul 2016Bull my samsung has %70 left at bed, you got crappy cheapo model maybe.Those are gsmarena stats lol... #samsuck
I really like the Moto Z, you can choose between thinness, battery life and even more battery life (with mods).
What an age to live in... I prefer the "fat" phones, even if the capacity wouldn't change. And capacity needs to be increased, don't want to be a bum carrying a data cable everywhere I go (let alone the powerbank or charger when I'm outside the office)

Nokia 3110 brick 4 days, smart phone a whole day no matter what phone, that's the life now of smartphones.
Anonymous, 11 Jul 2016The manufacturers should make phones with removable battery + removable back cover. That way, ... moreProblem is, they like metal or glass backs and call them "premium".
I think I'll be keeping my Note 3 a bit more longer, since i got a 10,0000mAh battery.
The manufacturers should make phones with removable battery + removable back cover. That way, we can replace the phone's battery to a bigger capacity extended battery. That is the only real solution!
Simon, 11 Jul 2016That is your usage. I have the S6, and it can also last me like this when I don't actively use... moreNot just a decade, battery technology hasn't changed much over the last TWO decades. When you use LTE, it consumes the same amount for iPhone users, the same way for Galaxy phones.
Let's get real here. I daily record my wife's S7 Edge (rated as one of the best optimized for battery stamina) battery performance with an Excel spreadsheet to average usage time, % battery left, SOT, data and wifi usage: http://flic.kr/p/HLcg5u
From 47 battery cycles, with just using average 72% daily, she does 3:45H SOT, uses 420mb of mostly wifi, and can calculate 22 hours of use of she maximizes the battery to 0%, with the way she uses it. It's mostly just browsing, sorry calls, SMS and casual games. I guess this is typical way of smartphone usage.
Fact is, 98H endurance (by GSM Arena) of the S7 Edge is unrealistic. Sure, it's the uniform method of metric to compare phone to phone. But we don't just "use it for an hour each of telephony, web browsing, and video playback daily". They don't even test it with LTE usage.
