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...

    • Thanks for all the help! I called, left a voice message and sent them an email. Unfortunately it looks like they were pretty quick shipping since I already have a tracking number and an ETA of Monday. Hopefully you’re right and it hasn’t actually shipped yet. I am in Oklahoma, so that’s part of why the shipping is so quick to get here. I guess that could mean returns are faster too. So at least there’s that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
    • That stinks. My area LTE is still 10x10 I wonder if it's because I'm in a Columbia capital area? Mpls Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
    • Yes I did restart app. Also rebooted Moto and turned off other signal apps. No accent. Restarting app also was needed on LG V20 if you want to turn accent off (turn off setting then restart app needed). Thanks
    • Hey thanks!! 🍻 I already saw your report and have been looking into it, I'm trying to get another release pushed out this morning to give you guys another try at everything for me.. the Red Pocket SIM caught my eye as the only oddity, although SCP identifies it as T-Mobile so it should show a magenta line. Did you try restarting the app after enabling the option, just in case? (You shouldn't have to do this but who knows). I'm adding some extra logging that should show me some more details why this might be missing. Stay tuned.
    • Accent seems to work fine on my Sprint LG V20 using Android 8. I have not tested it yet switch to T-Mobile or AT&T or Verizon etc.  No accent on my Moto G7 Power Unlocked and rooted with Android 9 on T-Mobile network using Red Pocket sim. I assume accent is triggered by PLMN, but maybe by sim carrier? Diags and beer money sent for both so you can compare if needed.
