    I got a Galaxy s6 about a week ago and made the official switch from Apple to Android. So far I'm absolutely loving it, except for one thing- the battery life. At first I was dealing with it because I had read reviews about the not so great battery on the s6 but now I'm wondering if something is wrong with my phone.

    By the time I wake up and unplug my phone to the time I arrive at work (basically a 30 min window) my phone will have dropped 10% and I will have only checked my texts when I woke up.

    Last night I went to bed with about a 75% charge and I woke up with it at 20%.

    Is this normal? Should I go get it checked out?

    No it's not. Mine drops 2% in 30 min and only about 10% overnight. I'd get a new one if i were you. They are also patching it there are memory leaks, and bug fixes so thats coming anytime now from the carriers

    I'm having the same issue with mine. The battery drains even when I'm not using it.

    Try turning off enhanced 4G.

    Data usage/mobile data/Enhanced 4G LTE services space space – uncheck

    I don't see this option in my settings.

    Had the same problem and tried disabling apps, turning off wifi and location, etc. Couldn't get it any better. It would drain 10-20% per hour, and at least 40% at night when sitting idle. Solution: factory reset the phone. I did it on day 5, and now my S6 lasts longer than my iPhone 5S did.
