Samsung Galaxy S6: What Destroyed Its Hopes

By  | 

If you take a look around the forums for owners of the Samsung Galaxy S6 you will find which complaints are the most common. So just what has destroyed the hopes of the S6?

It seems that the Doze mode is the downside and destroyer of the Samsung Galaxy S6. Android 5.1.1 Lollipop drains down the battery very badly and yes we are talking about the 2, 500mAh battery. The battery is one of the biggest downfalls of the handset it seems when using the Doze mode.

A research company by the name of Kantar has backed this in a survey which involved the Samsung Galaxy S7 along with the S7 Edge. They found out that the number one thing that attracts people to Samsung handsets is the battery life. This came in more important that having support for microSD card or water resistance.

The standard version has a battery of 3,000mAh, while the S7 Edge comes with a battery of 3,600mAh. However it isn’t just the capacity that ensures that the devices keep on running longer, it’s the fact that they have moved from the Snapdragon 810 processor and Android 5.1.1.

The top spec processor has been complained about due to overheating on various flagship handsets and when linked with the Quad HD display that the Samsung Galaxy S6 offers, with 557ppi, the energy wastage down to heat would kill off the handset in next to no time.
