S6 heats because it is thin and uses first gen 64 bit processor battery drain is due to small size of battery
guys, i need opinions as much as posible. does the problem of this S6 solved by upgrading to marshmallow? the extreme heating, charging, battery drain and such. pls help. thanks before.
Hi everybody, pleaaaaaaaaaaase help me, i have the sm-g920f version, when i enter to "settings" then "about device" i didn't found "software updadte" (i have lollipop 5.1.1 version) please can anybody help me.
my daughter bought one couple of months back. we did not get value for money. it gets heated up on charging to a point where we are unable to even touch the phone. We also had taken insurance while buying. On checking with the showroom 3 G YMCA Cross Road, Calicut we are told only if it gets stolen there is insurance coverage.
Total waste of money.
Samsung Galaxy S-6 is superb device. If you want to buy a smart phone which may be kept for longer period then Galaxy S6 is one of the best option. Because you'll find every thing like excellent display; super camera; speed; good battery; fast charging and many more. This device is trouble free and smooth. Very handy to operate.
Im having also a sm.g.s6.g920f.
For the battry issue update for marshmellow.that will increse ur phone performance and also keeps the battry more than lollipop.
Dont angry with not having micro sd slot.u can use an otg for pen drives and by using a card reader u can use any sd card.
Im thinking this is a good phone overall.and the global version sm g920f is the best
please dont buy s6. the battery life sucks big time. the worst battery in any phone. nexus 6p is good as u will get constant software updates from google

In my country, this type of problem did exist, in the past, but not now.
But now under gov agency, which demand no drop off in calls.
Also do note that do not walk too far, as the signal will lost, drop call.

About repair, there are parts ready available for repair.
I seen it at a shop that sell small accessories.
The item is battery with wires, a complete replace on battery. Since my S6 is bought this year, so not necessary to buy the item, also my battery are very good.
This is that you did not know where to find and look for.
In my country (Singapore) there are all sort of items available.
There are also small shops (one table with glass to see the items) everywhere.
Also several malls do sell phones, accessories, and many things you may not believe.

When my Samsung screen crack, as it is obviously damaged, the staff took it for repair.
Upon collection, with money on hand; the staff told me it is FREE, within warranty of 1 year.
Sometime, you may need to go for 2nd opinion, meaning another staff or service center.
You may not know, some staff can decide to provide free or not.
The Telco service staff give me a free replacement on SIM card, usually chargeable.
Reader4567, 01 Aug 2016microUSB v2.0 ??? Really? Who puts legacy usb version in their flagship phone? ;/Because nobody use it.
For S5, there is USB 3 connection, but nobody knows. Do you know.
Just look at S5 and check the USB port, it include HDMI as additional free package.
Nobody know. It also give away free battery set; battery, individual charger and HDMI cable that use microSD connection.
Some USB 3 device required additional Power.
Not like computer which can give the USB device power + data at the same time.
If not, battery will be very fast drain completely.

I bought the S6 for my daughter. After 2 weeks the screen would not light up. Sent it back and they would not honor the warrenty. They say there is a crack internally on the screen. I don't see how this can happen without the outside cracking also. It appears to be a scratch on the outside. I am terribly unhappy about this. Took it to different repair shops and no one will touch the S6. It seems they cannot replace the screen. Also I think that the battery cannot be replaced is terrible since by all accounts it doesn't have a very long life. My whole family have Samsung phones, but I will never get another one after this experience, since the S6 active is not durable at all
