My edge updated overnight without notice. Today my touch screen stops working repeatedly and I cannot get into any apps , not even to use the phone, text, anything. I can click and use my camera but cannot get into anything else. What do I do?
This update you guys talking about is it Oreo update? is it really bad?
My phone is ok with everything, except battery. It lasts like 2 hours on heavy use, and 5-6 on standby. It did last a day before the update. Going to downgrade it
Since the firmware update the battery life has changed drastically. Please check.

Since this new"upgrade" battery drain is unbelievable. Also notice the phone is hot around the edges.
Hope there is a fix on the horizon.
I am having the same battery problem since the recent software update. Battery was at 70% then overnight it drained to 5% without any usage and with all unnecessary apps disabled. Need a software update to correct this please!

Did the update in February and phone froze, took 15 mins of pressing all the buttons to get it back on. Will not be doing another update. O2 have said phone can last up to a year without doing the update but will just be a little slow.
Same as all others. Phone was fine until nougat upgrade... now crazy battery drain and crashes 10x or more everyday. Even backed up and wiped phone. No help. Same issues.
I recently got a pristine refurbished Samsung s6 and tried updating the software when notified. The phone completely froze and I could do nothing with it. Thankfully I got a refund and i bought another. I have again got a notification of a software update but wary about downloading this in case it happens again.....advice please?

WTF is that?
I updated my software on my Samsung s6 edge plus, and my battery is draining :( Iv had my phone for 2 years now and haven't had any problems. Any new updates to fix this problem on the horizon?
Last 2017 i switch to android.. just because my MF apple device has been updated into its latest version.. little as we know this is a trap to upgrade ur phone to its latest flagship and they admit it.. and now Android is doing the same thing .. 😏
Ever since I've been following comments on this page about Samsung galaxy s6 updates, i get only negative reviews but actually have never had a single problem updating my s6 edge. Pls guys, try to be serious and stoo putting false blames on samsung. If u have soft bricked your phone, leave samsung out of it.
Have the Galaxy S6 32G and installed the update on Tuesday night. I now have no notification panel drop down, can't save or install wallpaper, no auto-rotate, volume buttons don't work, can't see who's calling me, no notifications whatsoever for voicemail, texts, emails, etc., nor have any idea how much battery life is left. I can use the phone, call, text, surf but no drop down bar and have to manually go into apps or settings to access anything and my battery dies much quicker. Thank you Samsung, Google, and whoever else is involved! Fix the update!!! Doing the same crap to us what Apple did to their customers. Waiting to back-up everything before I do a total factory reset. Soft-reset does nothing. BS!!!!
