If you're experiencing poor battery life on your Galaxy S6, try updating this app
You’ve had your brand new Samsung Galaxy S6 for a few days now, so how are you liking the battery life? We know Samsung upset a ton of consumers when it decided to make the batteries in its newest two flagships non-removable, and it sure doesn’t help that both the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge only offer up average battery life. If you’ve been experiencing battery woes on your new handset, Samsung may have done something to help fix it.

If you own a Galaxy S6, S6 Edge or a number of other recent Samsung devices, head on over to the Google Play Store and select the My apps menu. There should be an update available for an application called “Samsung Push Service”. If you have an update available, you’re going to want to install it. According to the changelog, Samsung has “applied patches to reduce data usage and power consumption”, as well as added in a few bug fixes.
We’re not entirely sure that updating this app will be the saving grace for the S6’s battery life, but it’s definitely worth a try. Once you download the update, be sure to let us know in the comment section if you experience any less battery drain than before.
