GS6 Edge Goes the Distance with Battery Life - Sprint Product Ambassadors

Sprint Product Ambassador
One of the things I admire about the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is its great battery life. It comes with a 2600 mAh embedded battery that provides:
  • Talk Time: up to 26 hours
  • Music Play Time: Up to 58 hours
  • Video Play Time: Up to 13 hours
  • Internet Use Time: 3G: Up to 10 hours; LTE: Up to 12 hours; Wi-Fi: Up to 13 hours

However, even with great battery life, there are still times when you need to conserve your battery usage and make it go the distance. Fortunately, the GS6 Edge has two modes to assist in maximizing your battery life? Power Saving Mode and Ultra Power Saving Mode.

Power Saving Mode

If you need to save some battery juice, try using Power Saving Mode. When enabled, it saves battery life through?

  • Limiting the maximum CPU performance
  • Reducing screen brightness
  • Reducing frame rate
  • Turning off the touch key light
  • Turning off vibration feedback
  • Reducing the time before the screen is turned off when notifications are received

Ultra Power Saving Mode

This mode is perfect for extreme situations. If you?re down to only ten percent battery life (for example), you should enable Ultra Power Saving Mode. Ultra Power Saving Mode can give you up to a day of additional usage. It accomplishes this by?

  • Applying a grayscale theme on your device
  • Restricting application usage to just the essentials and those apps selected by you
  • Turning off mobile data when the screen is off
  • Turning off Wi-Fi
  • Turning off Bluetooth

To activate either of these modes, go to SETTINGS > BATTERY and enable.


You can also access these modes through the quick settings panel on your device by dragging down from the top of the screen. If you don?t see Ultra Power Saving Mode there, tapping edit will allow you to add Ultra Power Saving Mode to your quick settings panel menu.


Samsung has really done a great job with building these power saving modes into their UI. If you have a GS6 or GS6 Edge, definitely give these modes a try!

The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is available for purchase at Sprint.
