    Re: Samsung Galaxy S6: Improve Battery Life

    I can help you with a tips about charging your battery. Never charge your mobile devices battery unless it is under 10%. Then fully charge it without any interruption. I am following this rule and I am benefited with this rule. Not only me, I told it to my friend who was suffering from a battery issue. But not he is satisfied with his battery life.
