Messenger and Facebook won't connect on my Galaxy s5. Were working but now telling me "check internet connection'. I certainly have connection. JUst these apps not working.
Had similar problem in that after the update to Marshmallow 6.01 on my S5 Active couldn't connect via bluetooth to anything. Did the factory reset and that solved the problem with the bluetooth. Still really sucks that I now have to set up my entire phone again. The randomness of this is really interesting though. My wife's S5 (not Active) had no hiccups whatsoever after the update.

I have a Samsung S5, and it was ok before the recent update, now it keeps freezing, and I have to take the battery out to close it and then re-start it. I have been a samsung phone user for years, sorry, I think next time I'm going to do the unthinkable and switch to an iphone

Unfortunately, the only thing we could do to "fix" the problem is a factory reset. It completely wiped the phone back to factory settings; but no more problems and we will NOT reinstall that update. To do the factory reset push and hold the power, volume up, and home buttons all at the same time. Hold these buttons until the phone turns off and back on.
Hope this helps!
I'm also receiving an error saying I don't have enough space for an available update, even though I do have. Been having other problems too, but figured it was just because my phone is old.
Updated S5 23 August. Phone is now running VERY hot. Turning it off as concerned about heat of phone. When on and hot using up battery within a couple of hours. Also using more data whilst hot and using battery. I need to turn phone off and take out battery to stop what I assume must be a program running underneath. Happens most days.
Hope Samsung is aware of the problem with their phones!!
Why does my Samsung S5 keep telling me I have a software update and need to delete any unused apps and pictures to free up enough space...... I have plenty of space and when I try to update, it tells me my software is up to date and check back later. Of course, when I go back to my main screen I still have the notification that i need to delete files to free up space.
I know I have enough space because the first time i tried to check for an update it wouldn't let me until I did free up space. So, now what?
I finally did the update to my Galaxy S5 and it ruined my phone. It would no longer charge. I was told at the Version store that there was no way to undo the update and this happens alot. Also that Samsung accepts no responsibility for it because I CHOSE to do the update. I had to get a new phone. Not happy..

I read your post and have similar problems with the A9pro (lollipop)like screen freezing and video crash.
I try VLC, KMP and others which have also issues and found one called simply "Video Player"
Since then I can read all videos in any format again without any problems.
Seems to be an incompatibility between former good players on Android 5 and 6.
"Video player" App and uninstall all the apps with problems cleared most issues.
Hope this can help you.
