Battery life on the Galaxy S6 isn't great, but after the hype has worn off we want to know how long your GS6 is lasting.
As we all know, the first few days of having a new device isn't the best time to measure battery life — you're using it a ton, learning all about it and pushing the battery to its limits. Folks have had their very own Galaxy S6 or S6 edge in their hands and pockets for well over a month now, and at this point battery life has probably settled down to a nice average number that we can rely on.
We want to hear how the Galaxy S6's battery life has held up now that you're using it like any other phone. Do you still have trouble making it through the day? Have you learned how to use quick charging and wireless chargers effectively to make it a non-issue? Or with tweaks in apps and usage has your Galaxy S6 turned into a phone you can rely on for long periods? We're curious to know what your experiences are.
Your LG G4 has a removable battery, and this kit helps you make the most of it.
Say what you want about Quick Charge or wireless charging, for many power users and frequent travelers, nothing beats the instant 100-percent refill delivered by a removable battery. The LG G4 is one of the few high-end phones still offering this feature, and to fully take advantage of it you'll want LG's extra battery kit.
Gone with plastic out of the box? It's easy to swap in a more premium back panel for your G4
In the weeks a head, thousands if not millions of buyers in the West will be getting their hands on the LG G4 in both plastic and leather flavors. But with the carriers likely to be getting their claws into the more attractive leather G4 variants, getting it might not be practical to get hold of your first-choice color or texture at launch.
Fortunately the G4's removable back panel means you're free to pick up plastic at launch and upgrade to leather later. That's what we've done with our grey plastic G4, swapping out the bundled polycarbonate rear for black leather.
