Anonymous, 18 Mar 2017I don't get why people keep updating their phones when planned obselense is no longer a myth. ... moreAgreed with you on this matter.
It is best to let the update to inform you that new update is available.
I had this issue because i force update and then face problems.
I had 2 S5 of different models with 16GB & 32GB storage.
The S5 32GB was notify me on update is ready.
After updating the S5 32GB and i force update on S5 16GB.
S5 16GB then start to have problems.
To resolve the problem, is to do factory reset and it is different version.
After this experience, i prefer to wait for the update notify me then update.
Each variant &or model may be different in version as 5.0 and 5.1

Every app works beyond KitKat. You don't need to upgrade if you have at least KitKat. Upgrading will always lead to problems designed to make you buy a new phone. So you can enjoy bragging to people that you have nougat at the cost of a useless phone that will overheat its way to an early grave
Anonymous, 15 Mar 2017Wait is E7420 is more powerful than E7880 used in the A5 2017? Yet the speed tests shows that ... moreOf course s6 exynos 7420 is way more powerful. Its gpu has 8 cores for gaming/graphics vs only 3 in the 7880 which also has less powerful 8 cpu a53 cores compared to 4 a57 and 4 a53 in the 7420.
A series have only better battery life. That's it!

It's the bands network that are different.
That's why no 4g in different regions.

Europe versions use exynos which has problems of supporting US network bands. so they're both the same tho but a bit different in terms of handling network.
Battery Not That Much & No SD card Slot, Considering Out Of Those Cons, The Pro Are More Than That. As It Has Build-In Hardware: A Great Proccessors, Ram, Software: Smart Manager, Gaming Optimizer APK Preinstalled. "It Is Still A Usable Phone". Facing Out Of Storage Especially 32GB Variant U Might Consider Trade-In For S7/Edge For More Feature. Others May Have Their Opinion But To Me Is More Than Enough To Use Smoothly And Last For A Very Long Time.
hi everybody, i have S6 (usa sprint), in my country "morocco" i can't have 4G connection, only 3G, the phone is 4G and my sim card is 4G, is the American S6 so different from the European one?,

thanks, (excuse my english)
Wait is E7420 is more powerful than E7880 used in the A5 2017? Yet the speed tests shows that the S6 is faster and have a better, also S6 is pushing more pixels to the screen(2K than 1080p) thats weird, altough A5s battery is more powerful and better than the S6, so E7429 is more powerful than E7880(maybe bcuz E7880 is more power efficient than E7420)
Hi guys, I just updated my S6 to android 7.0 but having problem of battery draining and the phone a bit heating. Do u guys have the same problem? Any solution for that?

After reset, open each folder and check for which files you do not know about.
But the best is to clear all folders, except those files you have personally saved.
Other unknown files, delete them.
If the folder is for an app, never mind, delete it and when you install it, it will create as new.
Most of the time, reset do not mean you have completely removed virus/spyware.
Most app's folders may not be deleted properly, and somehow the virus/spyware may store it in those app's folders.
That is why you did not do a totally clean-up of your phone storage.
Reset is to remove any apps that you download and re-install the original apps that come with the phone.
It do not remove any folders and files downloaded before.
If you bought this phone from non Telco(s) then there is a possibility the seller did include some additional apps which may be the virus &or spyware.
Lison, 21 Feb 2017everytime I open a website, checking my Facebook account I am blocked with this
WARNING f... moreYou had been re-direct to a fake Facebook website.
This is common in most scammer &or hacker to give you this type of warning.
The rest of the statements is a common with fakes websites &or scammer.
There are also appear in those "Microsoft indicate that you have a fake....... do this to remove ......."
Do note that Facebook can send you a warning to your phone or email, that you had indicated before, as a secure message.
Just like Google Android.
Whenever i reset the phone and there is a need to provide google/gmail to use.
Once i gain access to gmail and download google apps.
There is a message from Google to another phone &or email to warn me that there is a new sign-in on that phone, and to confirm if it is me or not.
This is how official website will ensure it is you who is access to your own, say, facebook.
Official website do not ask for your particulars at that point.
If it do, then there is possible of some sort of scammer &or hacker at work.
Hope this will help you to understand how hackers &or scammers work.
Never give any personal details at that point.
The best is to close and exit, restart the phone and scan for virus &or spyware.
And then go in again, which may not have that type of statements anymore.

s6edgefan, 09 Mar 2017Hi i have a question. I m planing to buy this powerfull phone but i struggle with his battery ... moreThis is not a powerful phone, but a reasonable phone - mid-range type.
Battery strength depend on a lot of other usage.
If your Telco signal is weak, it use a bit more battery, as a guide on the battery icon.
Telco signal are basically on calls and mobile data required more battery usage.
Games and other also affect the battery usage %
A good measurement is your current phone, how the battery % drop.
For the mAh it can measure according to your current phone mAh.
Each user has it own way of using the phone, so cannot be compared to yours.
Use your phone to measure, as what you normally usage.
Dany16, 12 Mar 2017Guys, how long does the s6's battery last if the Wi-Fi is on for 10 hours a day and just some ... moreIt depend of what sort of games you played.
Some games do not use much battery.
But others do require more battery.
Have 1 game use 1% per minutes, while another use 1% for 5 minutes.
You can do a calculation on most other phones.
Timed as you play and see how much battery the game require.
