I wonder why Samsung has refused to upgrade their battery. They should learn the technology from gionee.

There is nothing to learn from Gionee. Do u think Samsung cannot decide to put 6,000mah battery on a phone and make it 720p? But then do u think that phone will sell up to 1 million unit? The form factor of the phone matters, gionee m5 is hefty, ugly and have an ugly display but with huge battery. That is not enough to sell phones. Top selling phones are slimmer and needs to have qhd screen. So how do u fit in 6,000 plus mAh battery on a slim phone? I just think they should have at least made the battery 4,000mah. Even at it still won't match half of the battery life of the m5 because of the qhd display.

1..reduce the brightness of your screen
2. disable WiFi when not in use.
3. turn off GPS when not in use.
4. disable background data on apps you hardly use
5. use edge network on operamini browsers for light browsing and 3g or LTE when you want to download or stream a video......if your battery is not already faulty, these will get you at least 10 good hours of usage..

No wonder...chrome is a browser that sucks battery. It doesn't use edge browser and i usually use chrome. Browsing on opera is boring

Using atleast a 5020mah can fit well into s6 and s7 sizes. The s6 and s7 aint really smaller in size when compared to gionee m3. The s6 is very horrible. Just 2600mah, how do they want one to enjoy the phone's high specs? They should improve their batteries.

Exactly the same reason I sold my s6. The battery was so so horrible I charge it 3-4 times a day. The thing with Samsung phones is when u get it new it gets good battery life, but after a few months the battery deteriorates so bad that it can hardly make it past 2pm. My s6 was getting to 30% by 10am even though i use to have 100% by 7am.
So true. I've been having same issue with my S5. Worst is even Samsung can't give you an original battery. Bought battery from them and it didn't last up to 6hrs on very light usage (1hr browsing with opera mini and less than 4rs of video playback), went back to them to change it and the second was worse than the first.

I promoted my iphone 5s to become my main phone and bought infinix hot s as my secondary phone. Hot s is terrible in performance and camera compared to s6 but the battery is dope without compromising design. But I'm pretty sure I won't use it for too long.

Yeah the 6S has dropped really much.....You will get the 32GB now for just $549 and even the 128GB for $649

Honesty I see no reason buying a new iPhone every year (or a high end android Phone) especially with this economy, except maybe if someone makes so much money that he has enough as surplus. I see no reason why someone that owns an iPhone 6s will switch to iPhone 7 especially when it is likely the next iPhone will be a MAJOR design upgrade because of their anniversary. The iPhone 7 ensign is already a 3 year old design.

EXACTLY!!! Just imagine the new iPhone 8 design plus the present iPhone 7 internals!! Killer product is the answer! grin
Re: Samsung S7 Edge Battery Is Very Horrible by Bossmd: 4:23pm On Sep 10, 2016
Believe me, Apple are saving so much for next year's iPhone. Ordinarily they would have revolutionized the design this year because with Apple a new number is a new design. So I guess they seriously have their 10th anniversary in mind.

Greenhulk your best shot now is the Galaxy Note 5 while we both wait for next year's iPhone and hope it will be a major overhaul of the present iteration. Me personally I don't think I can use any other phone apart from iPhone henceforth. I'm so loving Apple Music already.

It can be compared very well.

S7 edge is a killer. It can stand head to head with the iphone 7 even though it isn't as costly as iphone 7.

By the way, Iphone batteries aren't any better.
