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...

    • LTE or LTE B? would be good.  I personally prefer to know that it is unknown.  Thanks!
    • Shoot me a diagnostic if you can catch this again! Invalid signal levels should automatically be filtered out.   Yeah, B66 and B71 are natively reported wrong on many devices due to an Android bug. SignalCheck tries to catch these and report them as B66/B71, but it's tricky because in some instances the incorrect band is actually a possible valid result. I'm not aware of B7 showing up, if someone catches that please send a diagnostic.. it is likely B66/B71 being reported incorrectly but not getting caught.
    • The report you sent showed the app was displaying B2 and the icon at the time was also B2--I checked the graphics to make sure the B2 icon didn't actually say B71, LOL.. if it happens again send another report! I don't recall any recent reports of the notification icon falling out of sync with the app itself.
    • Your G4 is running Android 6.0, which does not report EARFCN info. SignalCheck is displaying it as band 41 because PLMN ID 311490 is leading it to believe that it is a former Clear site, so it defaults to B41 unless another band is identified another way. With 311490 now being used during the merger transition, it's throwing things off. Unfortunately the app isn't going to be able to know if it's a Clear site or a merger-related thing.. perhaps I'll just remove the default band for now, since newer devices will be able to figure it out anyway. These multiple PLMNs are going to be even more problematic than they were before, because they aren't being used the same way in every market.
    • Because just like any other network, they can't guarantee coverage everywhere.
