Samsung Galaxy S6: We Didn’t Start The Fire

The Samsung Galaxy S6/S6 Edge are great devices for their excellent performance and precision in photos. Their beautiful Quad HD Super AMOLED displays elevate the media experience to a whole new level, as well. Unfortunately, its battery life is one thing that is hard to look past.

The main reason why folks has bought the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge was because of their 3,000mAh and 3,600mAh battery capacity for the S7 and S7 Edge, respectively. So, it’s obvious that they have been displeased with the Galaxy S6/Edge’s battery life.

However, this may have not been the reason behind its small capacity number. Most folks claimed that the Galaxy S6 and its Edge variant were too hot to handle at times.

These devices are so prone to overheating that many users have reported that they aren’t able to hold charge for long. Could this be the fault of its hardware? Or, is it its software?

Well, for most cases, it’s probably both. Android 5.1.1 Lollipop is infamous for its high power consumption but it appears that even the Doze-enabled Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow couldn’t stop this problem.

Based on the numerous threads on Reddit, many have blamed the hardware of the Galaxy S6 and its Edge variant for its overheating tendencies. This is because they have tried all sorts of way to maintain its battery life only to have it fail again.
