In the meantime, the Android 5.1.1 update for the Galaxy S6 and the S6 Edge didn’t exactly improve the battery life for most users. However, newer devices like the Samsung Galaxy J8 and the A8 have displayed impressive endurance both in the idle as well as the active state.
Neither of these phones loses more than 1 to 2 percent of charge when left idle. Overall, Lollipop is an Android version that is plagued by battery issues.
Compared to that, the newer devices releasing with Android 5.1.1 out-of-the-box has remained devoid of this major problem. Devices like the newly released OnePlus 2 and the Moto G 3rd generation have performed admirably when it came to holding charge throughout a day.
