Why does the battery drain so quickly? don't even use the phoned and it drained 10% in less than 5min??

Can you guys brief about the battery life on S6 as it drains quickly for even normal usage. It drops percentage by percentage on calls for a min or two itself.

You did reply to me who was talking about phones and replying to you about a phone again. But sorry, you can continue your conversation alone.

1701, 14 Apr 2015Actually benchmark doesn't mean anything. Secondly htc m9 already caught cheating by anandtech... moreI was never speaking about the phones themselves but the chipsets because every phone will be different in software and hardware which will pull on processors in different ways.
Therefore chipsets alone cannot determine a phone's performance. The dicussion was about snapdragon 810 and exynos 7420 not htc m9 and samsung galaxy s6.
m86k, 14 Apr 2015Solid answer 1701. You shouldn't have to do that if people were just reading all newsSamsung did a great job with exynos and S6 this year. In real life performance exynos is shown to be doing better. Sd810 also does drain battery as evident in s6 and m9 battery life tests.

1701, 14 Apr 2015Well said. It even says in the article someone at sony is busy testing it. I didn't even read at the original article :) It's just common sense but people just want to prove you wrong because they don't think first.
nick, 14 Apr 2015Please visit antutu.com for correct information snapdragon 810 beats exynos 7420 in overall pe... moreNo need to visit antutu.com, i was calling your common sense. How many phones did you see with a Tegra last year ? How many "flagships" sold with it? And i don't see any smartphone, i mean commercial ones, not unknown test unit device/tablet scoring more than a retail S6 with same specs/resolution + what all whiners are calling "bloated UI", you do?
I'm like you (and maybe more) since i read and visit many sites like GSMA daily + RSS on my phones while i work, so i know well about Tegra X1, the amazing chip unlikely to be seen in a retail smartphone this year. Nvidia is too expensive and has problems with heat dissipation / performance per watt. So that's why i didn't even bother to mention it, but you didn't try to think before replying.
Whatever you want to believe, Samsung is ahead this year, no need to look for some lesser performance in a few tests (still higher than old gen chips), in overall Exynos just wins with no mystery to keep for the rest of the year. That's an analysis, not some fanboy comment mate.

Please do have a look at this S6 exynos beats m9 sd 810 in both geekbench and antutu, so your earlier comment about SD810 is actually not correct. Thus exynos 7420 is actually the best performing chip of 2015. Also m8 is actually faster than m9.
One more thing the actual benchmark of processor doesn't take into account other factors in mobile phone. This will be the case for sony, I know you might like sony but Qualcomm messed up with sd810. Lets not mention LG G4 will have sd 808 instead of 810.

Don't take my word for it go see for yourself that exynos 7420 in the s6 is not the best performance chip of 2015
1701, 14 Apr 2015With regards to best phone of 2015, in my opinion with S6 and S6 edge Samsung finally listened... moreIphone 7 (or maybe just 6S) will sell whatever new is inside even if it's a minimum upgrade. Only Apple can afford to do that since they are still good phones with solid performance (what people forget when criticizing prices). Like commercials say, iphones are in a different category.
They will maybe get a 13MP sensor or 4K video recording ability to justify the upgrade with one or 2 new abilities, a better watch integration and a new IOS (fresh paint) version.

SD810 in a non-flagship device? Possible but in 2016.
These are rumors and not official, don't forget that.
As far as we all know, possible CPUs for 1H flagships are : SD805/808/810, Exynos series (reserved to Samsung and Meizu), Huawei Kirin (beside Huawei, i don't know other manufacturers using it), MediaTeK MT6795 (and other/lesser variants) and some surprise cpu from LG if they are ready.
In that list, no ones come close to S6's Exynos so that's why we all can assume than unless SD820 gets available before fall, Samsung will keep its performance crown whole year (Note 5's release will take it from here)
scorpio, 14 Apr 2015It's been interesting following all your chit chats back and forth, also you wasting your time... moreWith regards to best phone of 2015, in my opinion with S6 and S6 edge Samsung finally listened to the complaints. I did get a chance to check both S6 and S6 edge in store. With regards to iPhone 7 I have to see, from my experience it would be very tough to beat S6 or S6 edge. That's not to say iPhone 7 will be bad phone.
