Samsung Galaxy S6 & S6 Edge User Thread

Recommended Posts

Eh, that post only mentioned s6 and note5. I agree that it could be other issues, but I'd like to see some proof of that, it's a Samsung app

There was an update today for the "Samsung Push Service." I wonder if that fixed it?

I think it was something wrong with their server from talking to sprint, as the version of the voicemail app has remained the same.

I'm still getting just awful battery life out of my s6 edge.

 

I purposely kept it off the charger today to see. I'm at 14 pct right now with only 1 hr 20 min of screen on time.

 

Anybody else seeing battery life this poor?

After 5.1.1 OI1, my SOT got worse. It went from about 4 & 1/2 hrs to 3 & 1/2 hrs. I'm hoping 6.0 Marshmallow will bring back the battery life.

Ha, I wish mine was that good. And I've shut off Google now and some other things.

If you haven't already, try a factory reset. I know it sucks to do, but my battery life has greatly improved on my Note 4 after doing so.

Tried to register my Chase cards today (have four of them. Chase isn't supported. Awesome.

http://www.sammobile.com/2015/10/27/samsung-pay-will-support-more-banks-and-work-with-gift-cards-in-the-united-states/

 

Chase cards will be supported in the coming months.

 

Used Samsung Pay at staples for the first time the other day. Was suprised how quick the transaction went through.

 

It will be much more convenient to use than the physical card as more merchants adopt the chip terminals (forgot the official name) where you insert your card. Those terminals take a long time to complete the transaction.

Won't be for months.... for carrier approval typically we are looking at at least 3 months after the international rom release and we havn't heard anything on the international ROM yet either

You'd think it would be faster this time around considering that Samsung announce it was working on the firmware back in August/july

New update last night OJ7 wonder what it is....says increased battery life?

I'm going to toss out one possibility for the battery life optimization in the last update. Same for the Note 4 update I just received. Website says Sprint Global Roaming and update popup mentioned battery.

 

When I was roaming in Europe on Global Roaming, my battery was draining like crazy. I wonder if those two enhancements go together.

Do you guys have a slight delay in hitting your home button and having your screen come on?  Or it seems to really take a lot of pressure OR that it doesn't always work?  

 

My wife's S6 seems as though you really have to mash the button to get the screen to light up. My Note5 is a light tap, the screen comes on, then fingerprint to unlock.  Maybe this OJ7 will improve things for her.  Seems to be only after the previous update that the home button wasn't as responsive, so I'm leaning software and not hardware related.

Do you have S Voice enabled with the home button?  I know that can delay its response.

Pretty sure I disabled S-Voice on there already.....I'll have to double check that though. 

 

EDIT: It was in fact, not disabled.  That's on me, thanks for that reminder though!  She's monitoring to see if that helps.  I feel like such an idiot!

That seems weird - I thought that was controlled by your data profile though. Try updating that...

    • I definitely don't need more coverage... just the damn VoLTE activated so I can get calls and MMS at the same damn time. Like I said, it isn't a huge deal, just annoying that this is even a problem in the first place. They told me AR4 are out of stock and they have no idea when they'll be back, nor can they put me in touch with someone that knows. They said they just have to keep checking and see if it comes back in stock. Once again, I said that is nonsense, but what can I really do about it. For right now, the Pebble boosting the LTE, and using wifi calling, is working fine for my needs. Much better than the AR2.5 I was using which didn't work at all.
    • Yeah VoLTE took forever on Airave 4s, but it's definitely working now. Supposedly it was enabled months ago, but not necessarily for existing devices (only new ones). I had to factory reset mine to get it back in the queue, but after 2.5 weeks it got it. My Magic Box with wired backhaul, on the other hand, got it only 3 days after a factory reset. It seems that a lot of femtos setup before VoLTE launched never got put back in the queue (particularly femtos using WiFi or Ethernet backhaul), hence the necessary factory reset. I'm not sure if an Airave 4 would offer substantial coverage improvement over the Pebble, other than having CDMA as a fallback. If you need to cover a larger area, you can use both actually. They should handoff to one another with VoLTE, just keep them sufficiently far apart to minimize interference. And you'll probably have to tell Sprint it's for use at a different address, but they won't actually check where it's deployed. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
    • Do it quickly.  My impression is T-Mobile really wants to move people to their network ASAP, even if it causes lots of pain. August 1 is rumored to be the end of Sprint retail.
    • I'm trying to switch over to the Airave 4 now that the've enable VoLTE on them. That should fix this problem. The only reason I got the Pebble over the AR4 is because VoLTE wasn't enable on it yet.
    • My router typically only gets rebooted for firmware updates or major functionality changes that I have implemented. Otherwise stays up for years.  Last time it was down is when Hurricane Ike remnants hit Ohio in 2008 and caused week long power outages, which killed local internet in a few days (I have two ISPs, UPSes, generator).  ISP's battery backups and generator use had improved considerably since that time. Making changes appears to be the greatest reason for router instability. So put internet connections on a UPS,  reboot after major changes, and otherwise enjoy.
