The Samsung Galaxy S6 is now nearly 10 months old. Launched in March last year, the Galaxy S6 revived Samsung’s fortunes after the company was panned in the previous year for its unimaginative phones. In its nearly 10 months life, there have been very few major issues (if any) that have troubled its users.

Samsung was very quick initially after some Galaxy S6 users started complaining about bugs. The bug fix updates were issued without any major delays, thereby helping the company keep its users satisfied. However, some Galaxy S6 issues remain. While these issues may not be major, they can become annoying if they continue to persist. In this post, we are going to take a look at some of the most commonly reported Galaxy S6 issues along with the solutions.

Galaxy S6 common problems

1. Galaxy S6 Battery life issues

One of the most common problems that plagues almost every device every year is battery life. While many reviews initially posted revealed that the Galaxy S6 battery life was average, many users to this day complain about below average battery life on their Galaxy S6s. While the fact that Samsung went for a smaller battery doesn’t help, there are a few things that you can do to solve this problem.

The first thing then for you to do would be to check if any apps are misbehaving and consuming more battery than they should. Depending on the app and its utility, you should be able to figure it out easily. If you think any app is consuming more battery, you can report the issue to the developer and find an alternative in the meantime.

Setting your GPS to Battery Saving mode will help immensely with battery life. Additionally, if you don’t find Google Now to be good enough, disabling it will also improve battery life. Other than that, you may want to try resetting your Galaxy S6 or sending it back to Samsung for a replacement battery.

Galaxy S6 Wi-Fi and Bluetooth issues

Connectivity issues still haunt many users. Connecting to Wi-Fi or Bluetooth should be child’s play but software bugs will always exist. From iPhones to the Galaxys to the HTCs, users across a broad spectrum of brands have often faced issues with Wi-Fi connectivity. Sometimes it could be their fault, sometimes the devices they are connecting to.

More often than not, I recommend people to forget the troubling Wi-Fi network and authenticate it again. If that does not solve the issue, you can try rebooting your devices – both the Galaxy S6 as well as the router or modem in question.

Finally, if nothing else works, check to see if there are any updates for the Galaxy S6 or the router that you are using. Make sure you’ve updated both the devices and try again.

This should work for Bluetooth connectivity issues as well.

Galaxy S6 Overheating issues

If you are one of those users whose Galaxy S6 is plagued by the overheating issue, you may want to exercise some caution here.

Try rebooting your device for starters. Many a times, it could be due to a service consuming more resources than it should. A reboot should solve it.

If this doesn’t help, try to factory reset your Galaxy S6 and set it up anew again. Contact Samsung if the issue still persists.

Galaxy S6 Performance issues

If you have been experiencing below par performance on your Galaxy S6, you may want to check which apps have been dragging the performance down. After noting it down, try contacting the developers to see if they can solve it.

For general system-wide performance issues, you can try rebooting your Galaxy S6. If the issue still persists, you will want to reset the phone. This will, more often than not, solve any performance related problems you have been facing.
