Best smartphone on the Market makes the iPhone 6 look like a flip phone.
If you manually adjust the brightness lower the battery lasts longer
Fantastic to look at it is very light and super fast
So far very pleased
Just Got my new s6 edge....already loving it, was initially in a dilemma to choose between iphone 6 & samsung galaxy s6 edge, but the tech specs and screen resolution along with camera got me edged to s6 edge :-)
Hv been using s6 edge from one n half month. Loving it. But its battery is making me crazy. Recently its giving me just 10hrs of backup. Nearly 20pc of battery gets drained during night times even if i am on wifi or not. Which was not the case with my previous iphone 5s and htc one e8. And its ultra or some power saving mode is utterly useless as it cant hold 5pc battery life for at least 30 mins. Even after turning on this mode, power drain is normal as it went from 5 to 0 pc within minutes of activating this. As hugely disappointed with its battery life as hugely satisfied with this phone's performance in other areas. If not for its great performance in cam, screen, fluid interface, and functionality generally a Samsung provides, i would hv exchanged this with Apple iPhone 6. If any one has a solution for this, pls provide me a way to manage this phone atleast for almost a day usage. I only use it for music most of the day time but that also seems a huge battry drainer.
pls help ! shoud i buy s5 or nexus 5 pls do searches or somthing like that and pls tell me know....thanks
Saroos, 17 Jun 2015How many hours should you charge a brand new s6 edge? I'm getting mixed views on this and I do... moreIf i remember correctly, it's stated in the manual that you don't need to overcharge the battery.
Just charge it to 100% before then don't recharge before phone gets off by itself to make sure the battery is calibrated.
How many hours should you charge a brand new s6 edge? I'm getting mixed views on this and I don't want to damage my battery before even using the phone. Any advice dears?
Today I used the GPS and was making calls at the same time. After a few minutes it popped up data connection lost, I thought it was a one time issue but it did this all day, has any one had this issue? This never happened with my S4.

Currently, mine went back a couple weeks ago from itself and yet, power saving was enabled. Something stays fishy and it's not the only bug with S6s sadly.

For now the Malaysian s6 edge is INR47500/RM2775 and the Indian s6 edge is INR58900/RM3440. Thus is cheaper in Malaysia. Note that the price mentioned is for the 32gb white variant only. The metallic color s6 edge and 64gb/128gb is more expensive.

M... moreI don't know what country's origin is your S6, if it's a carrier version or not but what you mention doesn't exist on my original from Samsung store S6 Edge : both that setting in messages and that service name.
So don't claim it as an absolute truth if it doesn't concern everyone or at least most of the people.
Actually my brother is in malaysia and I want to buy a phone thinking of s6 or nexus 6 , but he suggest a6 while a6 hasn't released in india. And want to know that phones in malaysia will be costlier than india or not?
Mr Moo., 11 Jun 2015I have my first issue with this phone.
I keep getting a pop up for ENHANCED FEATURES which wa... moreDon't listen to those that say you installed something causing it. It came with the phone. Mine started doing it out of the box.
The Enhanced Features popup comes up and all is good - if you accept it. As soon as I declined it the pop-up would reappear every 3 minutes. I went to the app manager and tried disabling the service, but disabling is not available. I did a forced stop, but it comes back on in three hours. The enhanced features are for things like Profile Sharing. Some people had the pop-up accepted before they received their phone and they have an Enhanced Features menu option if you go to Messages->More->Settings. Also, look in Contacts and see if Profile Sharing is a setting there. You can also look in the Diagnostics and see if Enhanced Features are enabled. If so, you or "someone else" approved the policies so Samsung can do whatever they want remotely with your phone. Mine was not "pre-approved" thankfully.
Mickey 14356, 15 Jun 2015Is there any Battery Fault in this?Not come across any faults BUT there does seem to be a issue with battery management using about 10% battery overnight. I just turned it on airplane mode when sleeping and it doesn't use the battery up. This is supposed to be fixed in lollipop 5.1.1 update which has already started rolling out in the U.S.
when i tap on the back button no light appears... and i cannot find its option in the settings what should i do ??
