JF69, 24 Aug 2015This issue is present in all Samsung devices.issue seems to be present in all Android devices in general. The operating system is still glitchy not to mention companies like LG and Samsung tend to want to add their own garbage (bloatware) on top of the already glitched android operating system.
paul newmann, 24 Aug 2015yeah, iPhones never had a lot more good things than Android has and still doesn't so stfuThe only thing android has on iOS is the ability to change your home screen. Other then that, I don't see the benefits of android with exception in buying a "cheaper" phone, and when it comes to android, you get what you pay for. Trouble 100% of the time with slowness and sluggishness, waiting for an update is a pain.
I'm happy with an iPhone. I don't have any issues and the stuff it cannot do that android can, anyone can live without.
Who gives a shit. As long as it opens in a timely manner. Which it does.
Harmonica, 24 Aug 2015iPhones never had this issue. Infant only one had and have this issue is our poor samsung !!! ... moreyeah, iPhones never had a lot more good things than Android has and still doesn't so stfu
tegelad, 24 Aug 2015Hmmm ... smells like a workaround for applications and an operating system with memory leaks. ... moreOr samsung hires some good software engineers ;-)
Software seems to be the achilles heel for samsung
If this is not a problem , then i think you are just got woke up after a very long hibernation ;-)
And this issue was there with S6 as well as in S6 edge , then fixed it.
Here problem is not the apps ability to hold the data in the background, but
samsungs ability to relaunch the app freshly everytime when an app is launched.
There is a possibility that TouchWiz launcher is buggy.
Whenever user launches the app , it might just loads the app freshly.
And i have a paid Launcher app in Play Store ;-)
Dazz, 24 Aug 2015Samsung aggressively kills tasks cause have apps like game running in the background will kill... moreThat's just wrong, there are many Android devices proofing your idea to be wrong... Some of the best Android phones in terms of battery life have a good ram management and can keep games opened and paused in the background without loosing battery capacity..
Harmonica, 24 Aug 2015iPhones never had this issue. Infant only one had and have this issue is our poor samsung !!! ... moreWell no, I wouldnt call it a problem. It just is what it is. Apps like KIK, Safari Browser (and tabs) tend to have to reload once brought back in. However have noticed that apps like the Maps app and the "Bank" apps are pretty good on holding on in the background. I have the iPhone 5S and Samsung GS6. They do a good job
Anonymous, 24 Aug 2015no, iphone could retain apps, check the settings and go to background app refreshhiPhone retains the apps but even on Background refresh, KIK for one, also the browser app, it tends to reload the browser at times and also reloads the tabs if you have several open. It really is not a big deal to me specially since the iPhone 5S is a pretty powerful phone. Once it reloads it does it fast. No issue or big deal with me.
Samsung aggressively kills tasks cause have apps like game running in the background will kill your battery pretty quick, want them open? enable developer options and set the process limit simples!
Hmmm ... smells like a workaround for applications and an operating system with memory leaks. My guess is that the earlier 5.0.x was fixed by slapping idle applications .... I wish either google would merge chromeOS and android and give us an operating system with real virtual memory ... or just port virtual memory onto android ... pick your poison guys and move into the 1980's .... or 1990's ....
JF69, 24 Aug 2015ALL Notes have this issue,yours is no exception.I Have Not 3 , it does Not have this problem
JF69, 24 Aug 2015ALL Notes have this issue,yours is no exception.I think Note 5 seems not affected. Saw a video of the ram test being done. The reloading didn't happen.
This issue present at the time of s6 released, but people busy with S810 heat issue....
Anonymous, 24 Aug 2015I'm glad my Note5 didn't have this issue.ALL Notes have this issue,yours is no exception.
I guess i'm the only one not too bothered by this cos i always hit the BACK button to close the app instead of storing it in memory with the HOME button. BUT it will be a problem if i have to do that every now and then for app i need to temporarily store in the background. Maybe Samsung ought to tone down TW even more cos pure Android experience on older Nexus devices is still smoother compare to it.
4gb of ddr4 ram on a phone is already overkill, samsung should revise their code on ram management... Why pay so much for that amount of ram when you are in reality just using 1gb of it as your own... Are those apps windows pc-like intensive? No... Does touchwiz lag down the whole phone? Yes.... No wonder i sold both my s6 and s6+....
