For some reason I'm getting very heavy battery consumption since a system update to 5.1.1 a few days ago, it drops from 100% to 61% in 6 hours while I'm sleeping and it seems to take longer to charge.
If I check Battery Usage it tells me that the Clock and Weather app I use is the culprit but nothing has changed there. Anybody else notice a similar problem?
I'm fairly disappointed with this phone to be honest, poor wifi, data and phone signal reception - even when I'm at home the wifi is very slow when I go upstairs and if I go to my workshop in the garden it switches to Data even though I'm only 50ft from my router! I also have to keep manually switching from 4G to 3G when I'm out and about to get a phone signal and in many places where I had good Data reception with my HTC One it's non existent with the S6.
It also keeps getting very laggy and slow to respond, shouldn't have to keep rebooting the phone every other day.
Are there any fixes for these problems?
Solved! Go to Solution.
One of our members @viridis has the S6 Edge and he has high praise for the phone. I know he only gets 1 days usage out of his battery....but expects that. I have mentioned him in this post and am hoping he will be along to comment further...:smileywink:

Thanks for your reply.
I'm familiar with smart phones so I'm used to their higher than normal battery consumption but this is really abnormal! I'm used to seeing a 10 or 15% drop overnight when the phone isn't being used but this is now 39% in 6 hours since the update to 5.1.1
Maybe viridis will have some advice.
