Other notable changes in the update include the ability to enable or disable the wallpaper motion effect, new modes in the camera app and other under the hood tweaks and changes.
Interestingly, we’ve been using the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update on the Galaxy S6 Edge and one thing that hasn’t been fixed yet is Lollipop’s aggressive RAM management. As many people have reported, the RAM management on the Galaxy S6 mean many apps are closed in the background and while there were rumours that this would be fixed in the latest update, it hasn’t as yet.
