Samsung Galaxy S6 Battery Life: Final Verdict

By  | 

With so many smartphones getting larger in size with hopes of making the display more easier to see, larger batteries are usually integrated to compensate for the extra juice needed to power the display. But there seems to be a change of direction for the Samsung Galaxy S6, since it has a large display but smaller battery capacity. Yep, if you didn’t know about that, you do now.

Samsung might really be “messing with success” as the S6 still has to rival against the likes of the iPhone 6S, LG G4, Sony Xperia Z Series as well as its own brethren the Samsung Galaxy Note 5. Here’s what the folks from GSM Arena discovered in terms of how well they fare against each other through a number of tests, including talk time, 3G and video.

Surprisingly, S6’s 3G talk can be lasted for up to 20 hours, and video playback is a good 12 hours, though web browsing is only slightly less than 11 hours. Therefore, it’s safe to say that the S6 matches with the Galaxy S6 Edge, and it’s still ahead of other Androids such as the Sony Xperia Z4 and LG G4. However, when compared with the iPhone 6S, the S6 is just way out of the league.

That’s still not too bad, isn’t it? You can still expect your Samsung Galaxy S6 to have enough juice to get you through the day, unless you’re constantly surfing the net, then that’s a completely different story.

    In a post detailing the energy consumption of the S6 against its’ rivals how can you not mention the fast charging ability of the S6?

    Less than 2 Hrs to fully charge the battery (from flat) makes a significant difference to users that are at their desk or car for even half an hour during the day.
