One of the biggest doubts about the new Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge is the battery life of the devices. Its capacity is only 2600 mAh, and it is non-removable. Earlier it was suggested that the short duration of these devices without recharging is one of their main disadvantages. Recently, some users have the opportunity to try a new product in work and check whether its battery is so small, as was thought before the appearance of devices on the market? Although the Galaxy S6 Edge is not much for sale, a number of users have already managed to not only purchase this device, but also share their impressions of its capabilities.
On the pages of the AndroidAuthority resource, Nirave Gondhia shared his impressions of the battery capabilities delivered to him last Friday by the S6 Edge, illustrating his story. He plans to further test the battery of his new device. After the first full charge of the battery, she showed the following results:
Total time: 14 hours 11 minutes;
Screen time: 3 hours 7 minutes, of which:
at maximum brightness: 1 hour 59 minutes
battery life per screen: 25%;
Watch video: 1 hour 11 minutes;
Games: 36 minutes
Telephone communication: 28 minutes
The 3 most energy-intensive tasks for a battery:
Battery testing is hampered by the fact that each user uses their smartphone in their own way. The context of the tasks that they perform is very important. Nirav Gondhia has moved all of its data and applications with the Galaxy Note 4 running Lollipop. The Galaxy S6 Edge has enough battery power for 14 hours, while the Galaxy Note 4 usually lasts from 18 to 22 hours with similar use of applications and services.
The first thing that every user should know about the Galaxy S6 Edge battery is the fact that the first 10% of its charge disappears very quickly. After that, the battery begins to lose charge more evenly. A similar strange phenomenon is observed by many users and reports that the reason for this may be the novelty of the device. Will the first ten percent of the battery charge be so quickly lost a few days after the start of using the phone?
What does it mean for a phone its ability to hold a charge for about 15 hours? The Galaxy S6 Edge has enough energy for one business day. Nirav Gondhia for the "working day" took a period of time from 7 am to 19 pm. These are the impressions of the first day. He is going to see if they change in two weeks. It is currently difficult to draw any conclusions. After all, there was simply not enough time to test the device. The artist is already dreaming of a Galaxy S7, but most users are not even familiar with the sixth generation of the Galaxy S family.
What are your first impressions of the Galaxy S6 Edge battery? Is the battery the main weakness of the new product? Or is fourteen hours of device operation enough for most users?
