Mophie Juice Pack for Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge doubles the battery life of the phones
Just introduced on Sunday, the Samsung Galaxy S6 is Samsung's new flagship handset. Also introduced at the same time, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge adds a little more real estate to the display with curved glass draping a little bit over both sides. But in the name of form over function, Samsung has made some changes to this year's models that many are not happy about.

First of all, in making the phone look and feel more premium, the plastic build has been replaced by a metallic frame sandwiched by a Gorilla Glass 4 protected front cover and a Gorilla Glass 4 protected rear cover. This means that the back cover on the phone cannot be removed and also means that the battery cannot be replaced. That seems important this year considering that the Samsung Galaxy S6 has a lower 2550mAh capacity battery compared to the 2800mAh cell that the Samsung Galaxy S5 sported. The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge comes with a slightly larger 2600mAh battery.

So what do you do if you are a power user and you are quickly running down the battery on your Galaxy S6? Having a spare battery all charged to go was an option that worked last year, but is not an option now. But before you give up on Sammy's flagship model, there is a solution. The Mophie Juice Pack is a case that not only protects your phone from drops and falls, it comes with a 3300mAh battery that is more than 100% of the capacity of the cell on both the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. It also offers a Quick Charge feature that will have your battery running all night at the flick of a switch.

The Mophie Juice Pack uses a proprietary Impact Isolation System that works like an internal suspension to protect your handset, while at the same time it is making sure that your phone is powered up to handle all of the mobile tasks you need to get done. Mophie is part of Samsung's SMAPP program, consisting of the manufacturer's strategic partners. This means that only Mophie will be offering a battery charging case for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge when both phones launch on April 10th. The case for either device will be priced at $99.95 and will be available starting on that date from Mophie's online store, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, Best Buy and other retailers.

Not nearly as effective, Ultra Power Saving turns off most of the pixels on the Samsung screen. Sony's screen is either on or off, period.

I am using usb OTG with my Note 4, the 32gb mem seems enough and I am using the OTG only when watching movies and to to keep files which I am not using regularly. Only mp3s, some documents, wallpapers and other selected photos are stored in my internal memory. so basically I was once "one of them" who really wanted an SD card before (the era of 16GB standard)

Samsung missed the biggest point by eliminating battery backs with s6. I have had batteries that went bad and overheated as recently as last year. I had one Samsung battery blow out entirely on a hot summer day, but fortunately I threw it in the garage and swapped in my spare, easy peasy. We need replaceable batteries not just for the daily convenience of power users (which I am one) but to quickly replace hot bad batteries (which I've had to do twice in two different phones). I will never again buy a phone without a replaceable battery, because that would be the stupidest thing I could ever do with my phone money. But I guess this will give me a chance to finally buy an HTC, which are the prettiest phones (though I haven't seen the s6 in person yet to judge its looks).

I am curious as to which HTC phone you would be thinking of buying, considering that you said you "will never again buy a phone without a replaceable battery, because that would be the stupidest thing [you] could ever do with [your] phone money". HTC doesn't usually offer many phone with replaceable batteries, if I am not mistaken.

Don't mind him, he is just another ignorant troll who acts like he would've been interested in the S6 if it wasn't for the non removable battery and the lack of micro sd slot, when we all know that no matter what Samsung offers he ll find a reason to hate on it.

Non-removable batteries: HTC One M Series Nexus 5 & 6 Sony Xperia Z Series (basically all Sony phones don't) Moto X Series Droid Turbo Oneplus One Apple iPhone (all generations) Huawei can't be bought stateside and Xiaomi doesn't sell outside of Asia. As far as flagships are concerned, that leaves one sole survivor in LG. I guess you could always buy a nice midrange phone though or chance it with a Chinese manufacturer.

How about making the damn phone 2mm thicker and putting in a 4000mah battery in the anorexic thing. I like women with meat as well as my phones. Easy to grab hold of.

IF the battery is bad just swap it out. Go on youtube and learn how to open it. it's not like it's 100% sealed

This is Why Samsung did not need to Put a Glass Back on the Galaxy S6,because these cases will Clip on from the Back,so you will never see the Glass Back,a normal back cover could have brought the Price of the Galaxy S6 down alittle and made the phone more Affordable for People,Samsung never thought about that at All
