Common Galaxy S6 Problems

& How to Fix Them

In this article of fixes addresses the most common Galaxy S6 problems including weird battery drain, Wi-Fi problems, and other performance issues.

Battery life Issue

The 2,550mAh-rated battery in the samsung Galaxy S6 is not the biggest battery and many users are having issues with poor battery performance. The phone is quick to charge, but it’s also quick to drain, and a number of people are not making it through the day without a top-up. The fact that there’s no removable battery makes this a bigger issue for  users.

Power saving mode can help you preserve your battery in risky situations.  You should adjust screen brightness and kill off background network usage.

If you will turn Power saving mode on then Galaxy runs maximum CPU performance, turn off the touch key lights, reduce your screen brightness, overall frame rate, turn off vibration feedback, and reduce the time before the screen is turned off when you receive notifications.

you can use Ultra power saving mode. Ultra power saving mode will apply a grayscale theme to your Galaxy S6 and it will limit your usable applications.

Go in Settings > Battery and check out Battery usage. we can find power-guzzling apps and replace them, or try to reduce their consumption by turning off notifications. Go to Settings > Application manager and run through the list on the All tab. Any app you don’t use, tap on it, and Uninstall or Disable it. Background syncing is also to be causing a lot of battery drain. Do you need all that syncing? Check in Settings > Accounts, and turn off anything we really don’t need to sync in the background.

Go to Settings > Wi-Fi > More and turn Smart Network ,Advanced and turn Always Allow Scanning off.

 MICROSD CARD SLOT

The design decision that has a number of users letdown with Samsung is that the Galaxy S6 doesn’t have a microSD card slot.

To get more internal storage than the baseline 32GB we’ll need to upgrade to the 64GB or 128GB versions. Doing so isn’t cheap.

How can solve it: There’s no easy way to hack a microSD slot into the Galaxy S6.

There are some ways to improve storage woe, though.  think about getting a memory card USB OTG adapter. What these do is to plug into the microUSB port on the bottom of the phone and let you access a memory card as you would when jamming one into a computer, except through Android.
