The Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are receiving rave reviews from customers and critics. However, some early buyers have complained about problems with the new smartphones. Most of the problems can be resolved through simple fixes. Here are some common issues for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, along with suggested fixes, as compiled by Phone Arena.
Missing Quick Toggles
Recently, users started complaining that Quick Toggles for data and hotspot disappeared automatically. However, Samsung has officially released a QuickPanel Restore app to resolve the issue, reports All About Samsung. The APK file of the app can be downloaded from here.
Swift-Key Keyboard Security Problem
The onscreen Swift-key keyboard on the S6 and S6 Edge, as well as other Samsung smartphones, has a security loophole. Samsung has confirmed it and is expected to release an update to fix the issue. Until the South Korean tech giant releases an update, users can either install a third-party keyboard or remove the Samsung keyboard. To do the latter, one needs to root the device and install a Titanium Backup app. By navigating to the Backup/Restore category on the app, users can uninstall the Samsung Keyboard 4.0 app and restart the device. Users can then install a new third-party keyboard.
Capacitive Buttons Backlighting Problem
On the Galaxy S6, there is no option available to modify the backlight behavior for the capacitive buttons. However, the Galaxy Button Lights app allows users to turn on and off capacity buttons. Moreover, it allows users to set time duration for the capacitive keys.
RAM Usage Control
Even though the Galaxy S6 comes with 3 GB of RAM, users are complaining about consistent crashing of apps, and the available RAM frequently drops to 200-300 MB. Samsung is expected to release a fix for it. Alternatively, to avoid this issue, users can kill unneeded processes on the device.
Wireless Charger Sounds
The Galaxy S6 automatically plays sound while connecting and disconnecting the device from wireless charging. Those who find it annoying can either delete or rename the sound files by navigating to System/Media/Ui by using a root explorer app.
Camera Shutter Sound
Some variants of the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge do not offer a feature for turning off shutter sound in the settings of camera app. A simple fix for this issue is to download and install a SilentCam Switch. The app will disable all sounds from the camera app.
