to fix this issue,
go to WiFi setting and unmark Smart network switch, and thats done.
If the option couldn't be unmarked, then you need to activate Data to uncheck it and turn data off.
hey guys n gals of GSMarena, i have a rather odd problem and question.
i'm one of the lucky ones who got the S6 on April 10th but much to my surprise the widgets on S6 and lollipop are kinda sluggish, for instance the samsung music player's widget's song list scrolls sluggish and with stutter unlike my S5 and note 4!
also other widgets like my mint app's widgets transaction list, and so on!
it's sort of annoying to see have that issue specially when u expect S6 with lollipop and samsung's presumably fast exynos octacore processor!

You mean, they buy the device and then just sell it for far more expensive?

So i do think on S6 it's also a matter of bugfixing too for those experiencing battery draining.

I was looking around for battery life tests and did find this.
Also if you see battery going down quick, check under battery usage. If cell standby using more battery than lets say screen then it's due to wifi calling, so a fix should be provided.
Can we get honest review of battery life I'm seeing contradicting reports. Some complained of battery life but tests done by users and reviewers on youtube suggest great battery life.
people that is lucky getting the device for around 900$ here in my contry they are selling the normal s6 at 1300 $ and the edge at 1450 $

Several other contenders out like G4, Z3Neo and P8.
And outtage of S6s in high capacity + all colors should be over.
bharat108, 17 Apr 2015Samsung Galaxy s6 battery life is very bad,battery draining very fast.I could have told you that was going to be the case, long ago when the specifications were released.
It's a fact shared on the SamMobile website as well. Serious disappointment with the battery life amongst other things.
Still, there you go. Wasted your money. Better buy a portable battery hadn't you.
this phone was the very good phone battary was very good and bt price was the very costly

David Clark , 17 Apr 2015With all due respect, you have no logical points.The undeniable fact is Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge ... morePlease do not feed the trolls. So bored of this pathetic argument. Even things non-organic evolve. These designs just so happen to be the coming together of many positive design features and many, many failings from all manufacturers. This is all in the quest for the optimum design, which given the similarities in handset design these days seems to nearly be perfect. Now go outside and get lives. All of you.
