Had an S6 Edge. One of the best I've owned so far. flawless performance and camera.
battery life was a slight issue during gaming/taking lots of video and photos but not bad overall. At least it charges so fast you don't really have to worry too much.
S7 Edge *Exynos version on it's way (impulse buy because of the bigger battery, water resistance and slightly bigger screen).
Two of mine different customers use this phone and their responses are this phone like didnt consume much battery. Both of them indicated that with mobile data alwayz on for facebook, saga crush, whatsapp and waze they barely need to charge the phone every two day. I wonder it is really that powerful?

Or else I would have not bought it in the first place. I did not even bother commenting ever on the S6, because I've never been interested with the S lineup until now. I wouldn't mind another millimeter of thickness if it means we get 4600mAh of battery.
It's the first time that the S series beat the Note series with 4 main aspects:
More battery, water-resistance, better camera sensor, and MEMORY EXPANSION.
The Exynos version is easily more efficient in power management.

My S6 doesn't heats up while fast charging wirelessly and it is only 6.8mm thin, sexy phone. LOL! Not bulky brick with 7.7mm depth, ew!

It does NOT even make sense getting any of the S6/S6 Edge, since it has terrible battery stamina, as a lot of people complain having to charge once or twice more during the day just to keep it going. Keep it real.
S7 Edge has 4 features above the previous S6 and Note.5:
Camera sensor, bigger battery, water-resistance, and MEMORY EXPANSION.
I can't afford one? I bought her the S7 Edge. It has become the family go-to-camera. Although she doesn't use it extensively other than SMS and calls. I've even modified it to take in all 2 SIM and microSD cards. But as soon as we are together, I can always "maintain" the S7 Edge. I know everything there is to know about the S7 Edge. I've even started a record on the battery cycles on a spreadsheet, all because the S7 Edge is the preview of the upcoming Note 6.
So far, the 3600mAh battery seems to meet my criteria of 16 hours of use, with more than 5 hours of SOT, and using some 2GB+ of data daily. I'm not even saying that the S7 is perfect, as Samsung took out the IR remote function, wifi-based DNLA Nearby Devices function, and of course a removable battery system to easily swap out or change to an even BIGGER battery.

I can afford whatever phone I like to buy.
I am planning to buy S7 Edge but when I saw that it is a downgrade, I bought S6 instead.
No heating issue using the wireless fast charging.
How about you? Using your wife's phone. Can't afford to buy your own? LOL!
There's a current poll ongoing, which is the best smartphone. S7 Edge is leading 37% out of 9 phones. Best smartphone to date.
Anonymous, 15 May 2016Can't believe that !!!!If someone is claiming "more than 24 hours" of use because of little or occasional usage, yes, "22 hours of continuous use" is possible... only not so useful.
Sealed batteries are NOT forward thinking as removable battery system can let you just change or even buy a bigger battery than to keep worrying about running out of power. Carrying around charger/powerbank are the problem solutions of iPhone users. Why do we want to inherit them?
rafostruga30, 13 May 2016i have s7 edge.and battery life is incredible,more than 22hours of continous useCan't believe that !!!!
ALPHA DOWG, 15 May 2016Hmmm...I can't believe people are really buying all that "Octa-Core" hype. For what exactly do... moreNice for you that you are now buying in. S7 Edge is not perfect, as I have experienced a sudden blank screen with no power button press response - even tried long power button press. I found out that all I had to do was to press both volume down and power buttons to restart.
However it represents PARTIALLY the best of the best features a smartphone can offer. The Octa-core actually works four sets of cores at a time, and you can monitor these with some battery stats monitor apps. It prolongs the battery, switching to a lower frequency processing, and higher frequency if heavier tasks are done. It can lasts only about 7 to 8 hours if you are doing mid-demanding games, and YouTube as I have observed yesterday. Look at the battery drainage for the first 5 hours that made it plunge to some 33% level: http://flic.kr/p/GLhp3h
But look at the how it stabilizes without work. The Screen On Time (SOT) came to 6:25 minutes, with 12% of battery left. And this one is more with more of browsing: http://flic.kr/p/GcFZ5S , showing a less angular projection. This one had over 7 hours of SOT till it reached 15%, over a period of 15 hours. You can go on for days if you aren't using the device, and occasionally browse the internet.
How much SOT can you have with the 3 days you are claiming?
The.Neighbor, 15 May 2016"Mis-touch the edge sometimes, so apps opened a lot."
I find that hard to believe since the... morewell, when i worte that opinion, it was within 24hr after buying S7edge (case hvnt bought yet). So i'd say I am not used to it. My palm touched often. I also mentioned A LOT that may be bcoz i am not used to it. -_-
Now, I hv bought a case and I am used to the curve screen.
#Battery >> fully charged at 8am. At 4pm, it last 65% with moderate usage ( COC,HayDay,FB,Viber,Browsing).
It did become warm in the palm but no overheating.
Well, I love this phone so much now..... ^.^ .
Another thing that I hate about leading brands are the pre loaded aps. Most of it are just garbage. And what really pisses me off, it's the fact that you can't delete most of them. such a waste of memory.
Hmmm...I can't believe people are really buying all that "Octa-Core" hype. For what exactly do you need an OCTA!? Bought myself a ZUK Z1. I have to admit, it does have some issues...but MINOR once...issues that I can live with. It's No Gorilla glass and exmor lenses...but it is worth every penny spent. And the battery life? Reminds me of my 3310. Had it on stand by for the most part with the occasional calls and text and web surfing and it still lasted for 3 days!! played CSR 2 Via Wifi for a total of 4 hours, lasted for 1.5 days. Amazing phone. If only people would stop buying the hype and instead look at what they really need, Samsung wouldn't be pricing their phones this much.
I bought tell s6 edge last month...the phone is awesome..and I don't think I'll ever use anything again if not Samsung.....buying the s7 edge in September...
Anonymous, 15 May 2016My S6 doesn't heat up while charging with wireless fast charger.
Where did you get the idea?Tcool, you do know your ip address shows, right? You don't even have the S6. Conduction charging generates heat. It follows the rules thermodynamics.
If it didn't, the wireless official S7 Edge 3100mAh will not just transfer 1700mAh. I've already tried wireless charging on the Note 3. Same thing happens on the S7 Edge just to see - it also heats up.
phone are liked human nor cars, other are healthy or well made while other are sicked or have troubled. sometimes it good while its new but it will get problem while using it long...
stop your complaint...peace
