Samsung may have hit it out of the part as far as the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge are concerned but the new flagships have had their fair share of issues. One of the biggest issues that’s irking many users right now is very aggressive RAM management on behalf of the handsets which causes background apps to close much sooner than they should. It was expected that the company would fix this issue with a software update and now a new Galaxy S6 update is being rolled out in select markets which appears to improve the performance.
It was Samsung UK that first confirmed last week through Facebook that “micro-updates” will be rolling out soon for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge to improve performance and stability.
According to multiple reports one such update is now being rolled in various markets across Europe. The new software update for the Galaxy S6, bearing build number G920FXXU1AODG, comes in at just under 140MB and appears to slightly improve the handset’s performance.
The changelog doesn’t point out precisely what tweaks have been made to achieve these gains and neither does it mention anything about fixing the RAM management issue, perhaps that might come at a later date through another one of these “micro-updates.”
