Samsung S6 Edge/plus Support/reviews... Contribution Needed by sidnazious(m): 1:27am On Jan 25, 2016
Hi guys,

I checked through for a thread on the above named phone but couldn't find.... Surprised though... shocked

Currently using the Samsung S6 edge+....... So far so good the phone has been splendid with serious multitasking abilities, gaming, browsing speed, sharp camera, smooth finger print, quick charge etc... In my opinion, this might be the best performing phone right now. Major drawback is the non-availability of the infrared sensor for remote control and battery is just normal....... dies when pushed too hard... But can get up to two days with normal use.

Antutu score is 79323, the performance is almost same as the normal s6 edge.

To all other users, Kindly post experience so far with the device, tips and tricks, rooting, os upgrades etc.

Thanks @all.

I've been using the galaxy s6 now for a couple of months. So far it is the best phone I've ever used. Screen is amazing and camera is something else. The phone is snappy, no single lag experienced yet. Has the infrared sensor and i use the remote to control everything in my house, TV, home theatre, Ac, even apple TV. The only drawback is it struggles to keep more than 4 apps in memory. Like when u are browsing using chrome and open a few apps, by the time u are back in chrome it will reload the page.. Pretty snappy though. Same thing with gaming, when u open up to 3 games and go back to the first, it will reload. I think the phone was designed like that for optimization, I mean who plays 3 games at the same time? Even PlayStation 4 with 8gb of ram can only play one game at a time.

But it gets annoying when u are playing a game and switch to reply a Whatsapp message for just minutes and the game will have to restart. I heard it was fixed in the galaxy s6 edge plus.

Using edge6+ the phone is excellent and for multi tasking it's perfect, the battery is out of this world when compared to the s4 I was using b4 and it keeps shining all day due to the gold version

Maybe it has to do with the higher ram. I open close to 80 tabs on Google Chrome... No lagging and all pages stay loaded...

Multitasking is great. I will recommend to all just the price.

I got this after my xiaomi redmi note 2 burnt my fingers.... With faulty screen and non-availability of spare parts. Annoyance things....

Yea, 4gb of ram no be play play. But I think the 3gb on galaxy s6 is also enough for multitasking. The memory leak was reportedly fixed with 5.1.1 but my phone still struggles to keep many apps in memory when u start running 10 apps at the same time. Chrome tabs reload after a few app switching. Maybe it is a t mobile thing. There are custom roms that fix this but I just don't feel like rooting this phone. I'll wait for marshmallow and see if it fixes it, if not then I'll root and install custom rom.

It works like a charm. I was also confused when I first got the phone as the t mobile variant dkesnr have in built hotspot. U have to use the t mobile hotspot, look for the icon in the app drawer or under t mobile folder.

what's the storage size of your Samsung s6? I'm trying to get the 64gb but it seems to be very hard to come by, since the storage is fixed I'm finding it hard to go for the 32gb stora

Mine is the 32gb version. Might be hard to get the 64gb, that one is more common with the s6 edge plus
