DO NOT BUY SAMSUNG PRODUCTS.
I own more 7 samsung devices and so far every single samsung device I own has a faulty.
My s6 phone is now not charging and this now the 6th time this has happened, I have sent my phone to be repaired and the problem still keeps to be happening.
One of the tablets I own has been crashing since day one of buying it and the other tablet I own loads everything very slowly and I have had this one less than year.
The TV I own constantly gets a green line across it and I have this just over a year.
The washing machine does not drain correctly. This is less than 6 months old.
And this is just a small number of the problems I have with their products and the list goes on.
I have contacted samsung to not have a replacement handset as clearly the handset is faulty. They refused to replace the handset and simple do not care about their customers or the faulty products they sell them.
This has really made be rethink and I am now selling all samsung products and now buying the next best selling product.
I hope this comment helps you and you really think about if you want to buy a faulty product that is constantly going to break.
After nougat update on O2 I have noticed a bit more lag especially on the notification bar on pull down. I have done factory reset. I guess we have to wait for the little software updates (security patches, system performance improvements) in order for it to get better.
Anonymous, 14 Jun 2017So I've had the Nougat update for two weeks. Some impressions in that time: - I had to factor... moreYou may have to reset the individual settings again, as most would be reset to default.
So I've had the Nougat update for two weeks. Some impressions in that time:
- I had to factory reset due to issues with Play Services (nil app issues now)
- Overall performance seems to have decreased (I am seeing some lags in system animation, notably in the stock Gallery app)
- Battery life is a mixed bag. My standby time has decreased (losing around 10% every 7 hours of standby), however when I am actually using the phone the battery life seems unchanged. Some additional background processes maybe?
- Camera performance, notably low-light, seems to have gotten worse. On Marshmallow the low-light performance was actually quite good, but with Nougat there is a lot more noise. That and, the Nougat camera app shows some lags, and looks (and feels) childish with all the swiping (Marshmallow was more 'mature' in that regard).
Overall the update is definitely usable. That said, if I knew what I know now with the Nougat update, I would have stayed on Marshmallow. Hope that helps some people still on the fence.
Mc2, 02 Jun 2017In the last few years samsung products have been terrible especially my s6. I have had a s4 an... moreSoftware upgrade do not necessary will definitely improve on using the phone.
Some apps may not work, some issues do pop-up.
As in any upgrade, should there be a problem then saved the data.
Proceed to do Factory Reset, as this will resolved problems encountered after upgrade.
This could also be due to that some upgrade is for a particular model variant, which may not be for your phone.
Safe to upgrade is via OTA or thru phone Setting -> About device -> Update.
For apps, do refer to the apps developer for the update.
Write to them and as i had experienced before one developer go all out to enable a particular phone able to run their apps.
girish mg, 11 Jun 2017After nougat update otg not supported Normally after a major upgrade, and if found any issue in continue to use it.
Then save your data and do a Factory Reset.
Most of the time Factory Reset will rectify any problems after the upgrade.
i bought my samsung galaxy s7 in singapore for 22000 but now i have a board problem
service center is asking 19000 so waste of cost to make it ready
Which smartphone should i buy? Nexus 6P & LG G5 or the Samsung S6? I'm kinda stuck on these three.
girish mg, 11 Jun 2017After nougat update otg not supported plese check your device with service centre. Otg is working fine on my galaxy s6 after update.
In the last few years samsung products have been terrible especially my s6. I have had a s4 and s5 they where very good. Software updates for the s6 was shocking hated everything about it.I now decided to stop supporting samsung even there tv .
I factory-reset my G920F (128GB) and can confirm that all issues have been rectified.
Now trying to use the pre-installed Samsung Dictionary app (which was in the app-drawer since 5.0), which seems to have disappeared (still installed, just not in the drawer).
Lora18, 28 May 2017My s6's data connection keeps dropping. I need to go.flight mode every now and then to have it... moreDo check the notification on the signal bars strength and whether it indicate 4G, H+, 3G.
If it keep switching between H+ and 3G &or missing, it mean the signal is no good.
If it is in one location, do check with your Telecom on this location signal.
Other option is to go to Setting -> Mobile networks -> Access Point Names.
Ensure the APN setting are correct or not by either contact your Telecom support or reset the APN, which may be available in the Telecom website including facebook.
At the same time check with your Telecom on whether they have VoLTE.
S6 do have this feature as Voice over LTE, meaning that while you are talking on the phone and you can do surf internet at the same time. It is similar to HD voice.
Signal strength do use much battery power. If it is poor signal, battery would be drain faster. Normal before going out, i check the battery % and if below 50%, i put to charge using the original battery charger with fast charge. To know if it is a fast charger, there are 2 output voltage. It will able to charge 60% in 30 minutes, hence enough battery to use for the day. I do not use power bank due to the heat issue. Fast charge is better and safer.
To everyone that upgraded there OS to nougat just factory Reset it after updating to remove the isues
Some minor issues on my G920F (128GB UK unbranded). There are some quirks on my S6 and Nougat that I didn't see before but that's more focused on apps getting updated as well.
While I dont have any battery issues I am seeing some stuttering on animation. Also having problems with Play Services everytime I open Gmail. I alsp noticed RAM management isnt as good as before.
Will give mine a factory reset to see if that helps (which I expect it will). Aside from the above I am happy; the update is perfectly usable.
I don't received noughat yet.. I have global version in Pakistan.. any with global version received the update?
My s6's data connection keeps dropping. I need to go.flight mode every now and then to have it connected. Help anyone.
