The most things which concerns users of a smartphone is the battery life. Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge which was released recently comes with a 2600 mAh battery which required to power up a Quad HD display, octa-core processor and 16MP camera. Some of us must be wondering whether it is sufficient to power up all those components. In this entry, we take a look how is the performance of the battery in different conditions.
On the first day, we used the smartphone for about an hour of video streaming, half an hour gaming, about half an hour for phone calls, about two hours we use the full brightness feature, then we left with about 14 hours battery life at the end of the day. This of course includes Facebook and Twitter usage. Not really a bad performance.
On the second day, we used the smartphone in full brightness for about two hours and 15 minutes, longer than on the first day. About an hour of video streaming, no gaming, about 14 minutes of phone calls, it was left with about less than 8 hours of battery life at the end of the day. It is not confirmed whether the battery draining issue is because of the full brightness of display.
To confirm the matter, on the third day, we did not put the smartphone into full brightness at all, no video streaming for the day, about 48 minutes of gaming and about 1 hour and 45 minutes of phone call and by the end of the day, it is left with 23 hours and 45 minutes. Therefore, from this, we can confirm that full brightness drains a lot of battery life.
To counteract this issue, Samsung has issued an update for the Samsung Push Service app to improve the battery life.
