One of the best features of Samsung’s Galaxy S phones were their easily replaceable batteries. You could just pop off the plastic rear cover, pull out one battery, slide in a fresh fully charged one, and then be right back to 100%. For the Galaxy S6 and S6, Samsung has moved to a glass-backed design, which means replacing the battery isn’t really practical. Instead, we have an alternative: a battery case for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge which more than doubles your total battery life.
The Power Bank Case for the Galaxy S6 provides 4,200mAh of battery power. Added to the 2550mAh battery pack inside the phone, you’ll have a massive 6,750mAh of power on tap, more than many tablets! With 265% of the power, you’ll be able to use your Galaxy S6 for days at a time. According to GSMArena‘s battery tests, you can expect:
- 46 hours, 16 minutes of 3G talk time (nearly two days straight!)
- 23 hours, 7 minutes of web browsing (nearly one full day)
- 27 hours, 31 minutes of HD video playback
You’ll get similar numbers for the S6 Edge, which features a similar display, a slightly larger battery and otherwise exactly the same components.
Of course, this case isn’t just good at increasing your battery life. You can also use the Power Bank Case to keep your Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge safe from harm. The impact-resistant plastic used here will provide good protection from scratches and impacts, with the bulk of the battery used to good effect.
The case also includes a kickstand, letting you use that extra battery life to watch movies, surf the web or play games. This handy inclusion means that you don’t have to shell out for a separate desk stand.
The Power Bank Case is available for pre-order now for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. It is available in white and black for both phone models. For more information and to place your pre-order, please visit the product pages below:

Earlier today, we looked at some of the best official cases for the Galaxy S6. Now we’ll continue our focus on the Galaxy S6 with a look at the best official accessories for charging and protection. Let’s get right into it!
Screen protector - 1 pack
We’ll kick things off with this official Galaxy S6 screen protector, made by Samsung themselves. Samsung were actually demonstrating these screen protectors at their Unpacked event where the Galaxy S6 was announced, and they looked quite high quality. The screen protectors are easy to apply, thanks to an included application card, and will continue to provide invisible protection for a long time. This is an official licensed Samsung product, so you can rest assured that these screen protectors fit the the phone perfectly.
Standard Battery - 2550mAh
Our next item is this standard 2500mAh Galaxy S6 battery. If your Galaxy S6 isn’t running for as long as it did when you first got it, then replacing the battery could be the answer. Note that you will need some specialised tools and clear instructions for doing this, as Samsung have removed the battery cover in the Galaxy S6′s design. Instead, you have to take the phone apart, so it may be better to have an authorised Samsung repair agent perform the deed.
Wireless Charging Pad - Black, White
Our final item is this wireless charging pad, made by Samsung and offered in black and white. These charging pads are quite stylish, with a simple circular ringed design that will take a place of pride on your desk or nightstand. The charging pads deliver an elegant solution for wirelessly charging your Galaxy S6, without the bother and mess of cables running everywhere. It’s the first time that the Galaxy S series has included wireless charging out of the box, so why not make use of it?

The early reviews are in, and the Galaxy S6 looks like a winner. If you’re planning on picking up the phone, take a look at this. We’ll be going over the official accessories available for the new phone, starting with the very best official S6 cases and covers. Let’s get right into it!
Clear Cover Bumper Case - Blue, Gold, Silver
We begin with the Clear Cover. This bumper-style case lets you show off the good looks of your S6, while ensuring it doesn’t get damaged by drops or falls. The cover includes cutouts for all buttons and ports, too. If you want protection without the usual bulky feel of a case, then this is a great choice. Available in three gorgeous metallic shades: blue, silver and gold.
The Clear View Cover is a stylish premium case for the Galaxy S6, which adds full protection to the front, rear and sides of your phone. The flip case features a semi-transparent front cover that lets you see the time and incoming notifications with ease; you can even press the touch screen through the case to accept or reject calls! The cases are available in four colours, each of which makes a stunning statement when added to the Galaxy S6.
The Flip Wallet Cover offers a more traditional leather look, available in a wide range of colours. The Flip Wallet Cover is made from the highest quality synthetic leathers, allowing your device to be fully protected from scratches, front and back. The slimline design even includes two slots for storing your cash and cards. A great option for those that appreciate a classic look.
The Flip Wallet Fabric Cover is a more textured version of the Flip Wallet Cover we just saw, made from a high quality fabric. It provides a unique look that still delivers great protection and convenient card slots. Available in six fine colours.
The Protective Cover is a impact-resistant plastic shell, designed to offer increased resistance against drops, scratches and knocks. The Protective Cover retains a slim profile, ensuring that the phone still fits into your hand and your pocket. This official accessory covers just the front corners of your S6, giving you unfettered access to the touchscreen, buttons and ports.
The S View Cover is the most advanced Galaxy S6 case on the market, offering a fully interactive windowed flip cover that makes it easy to see incoming notifications. You can easily touch and control your phone through the window, so you can accept calls, skip tracks and load up the camera. It’s a great way to get around the normal awkwardness of a flip cover, ensuring you don’t always have to open the cover to use your phone. It looks great too, with a slim design and a bold range of colours.
The S View Fabric Cover is the same great S View cover, rendered in a beautiful fabric material that provides a stylish look in a nice range of colours. If you’re looking for a stylish, protective and fully functional case, this is a great shout.

The Galaxy S6 seems to have less bloatware than previous versions, but there are still some ornery apps that you might prefer to disable or remove – including ones installed by your carrier or by Samsung themselves. Here’s how to do it.
How to disable bloatware apps
Disabling an app is actually quite simple on the Galaxy S6.
Simply open Settings, then tap search in the upper right corner. Type in Apps, and then click on the result. You’ll have a big list of downloaded apps, currently running apps and all apps. Find the app you want to disable, then tap on it. Then, click Disable to stop it, and prevent it from running in future. Read the warning, then press OK. The app should now be disabled.
Repeat the process for other apps you want to disable, but remember that other apps that rely on one that you disabled might start going wrong.
How to fully remove bloatware apps
Disabling apps is useful, but you might prefer to fully remove apps instead. If you’d like to do that, then you’ll likely have to root your phone to do so. Once your phone is rooted, use an app like System App Remover to remove the app for good. Once again, remember that this may cause problems elsewhere.
