samsung galaxy s6 vs s6 edge aa (36 of 39)

The Galaxy S6 has been showered with praise, but that doesn’t mean it’s without flaws. One glaring issue that many users are facing is subpar memory management that causes background apps to be closed sooner than normal. That can get annoying really fast, as you can imagine, especially when you consider the caliber – and price tag – of the Galaxy S6.

The good news is a fix for this software issue should be coming. Last week Samsung UK announced on Facebook that “micro-updates” are in the works to improve the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge’s performance and stability, and now one such update has hit a device belonging to the folks at GSM Arena.

According to the website, the update brings a noticeable improvement in performance and stability. Bearing the G920FXXU1AODG code number and weighing 138 MB, the update reportedly made the European version of the Galaxy S6 run “a lot snappier.”

Unfortunately, the OTA changelog doesn’t specify what kind of stability improvements and bug fixes it brings, so there’s no guarantee that the dreaded RAM-clearing bug has been solved for good.

European Galaxy S6 users, have you encountered the memory issue? Any recent OTA updates?
