Galaxy S6 Battery 2,550 mAh to last less than 4 hours

The full list of Galaxy S6 specs has leaked and all though it might be the best looking Samsung device yet with some beast specs it has one giant down side, the 2,550 mAh battery will last only 4 hours tops.

The new S6 which is expected to be released sometime in March 5.1-inch QHD AMOLED display, 64-bit eight-core 14nm CPU which is 50% faster, 20 megapixel OIS camera sensor and a 5 megapixel f/1.8 front-facing camera with real-time HDR but the most interesting part is the Galaxy S6 battery duration and recharging capabilities

Galaxy S6 to feature a 2,550 mAh Battery that will last 4 Hours

There seems to be no actual advantage to this except for the fact that the battery will be of a smaller size (10% smaller compared to the S5). The current Galaxy S5 features a 2.800 mAh battery  and the new one will have 250 mAh less powering hardware that requires much more energy, this is also why the battery will only last 4 hours. The Galaxy S6 battery will feature some new charging technology will allow you to fully charge it in less then 10 minutes but if you are someone who is looking into using their device all day, the S6 might not be the device for you.

  1. Pffffff. I will go to Sony then. Or stay with lg… I was expecting much from this phone, and battery is one of the most important thing in my opinion..

  2. This is the dumbest claim I’ve ever read in my life. 250 mah won’t change much at all, if anything, the note efficient chip, along with a smaller screen and newer internals will last just as long as the 2800mah battery if not more.

  3. My Nexus 5 came out in late 2013/early 2014 and has a 2,300mAh battery. It isn’t the best at battery life, but can handle about 12 hours+. It’s 2015, and the S6 is due to release with a whole slew of components far better and more efficient than the N5’s own. And you’re telling me that you know the battery on S6 already and its projected battery life? Something here reeks of BS.

  4. There was an article that stated you can get 4 hours on a 10 min charge, it didn’t say anything about fully charging it in 10 min. If Samsung listened to there customers and only give 4 hours on a charge, they wouldn’t sell 100,000 units.
