How to Fix Galaxy S6 Edge Performance Problems

One of the problems we experienced on the Galaxy S6 was slow performance out of the box. Lag did not impact our Galaxy S6 Edge, but the solution to performance issues is the same. With a few steps, you can remedy many Galaxy S6 Edge performance issues.

The first thing to try is clearing the Galaxy S6 Edge cache. Clearing the cache requires a short procedure that we outline below.

  • Turn the Galaxy S6 Edge off.
  • Press and hold Home, Power and Volume Down buttons simultaneously until the device vibrates.
  • When the Samsung logo appears, release them.
  • Tap Volume Down repeatedly until you Wipe Cache Partition. Select it with the power button. Select Yes.
  • Wait for the process to complete. It could take a while.
  • Reboot your Galaxy S6 Edge.
Clearing the cache can solve performance problems.

Other potential fixes for lag or slow performance include stopping the use of live wallpapers, by switching to a standard image and switching to a new launcher, but these may not help all S6 Edge owners.

To change animations go to Settings -> About -> tap on Build number seven times to turn on Developer Mode. Now go back to the main Settings -> Developer options -> Window animation scale, Transition animation scale, Animator animation scale. You can try setting the speed to .5x, which should help speed up the Galaxy S6 Edge

How to Fix Galaxy S6 Edge Battery Life Problems

Some users complain about Galaxy S6 Edge battery life problems that drain the battery too fast or that simply lead to bad Galaxy S6 Edge battery life.

There are a lot of potential reasons that your Galaxy S6 Edge battery life is not as long-lasting as your day. Here are the best Galaxy S6 Edge battery life fixes that you should try.

How to Fix Galaxy S6 Edge Screen Rotation Problems

One Galaxy S6 Edge problem is severe enough that Samsung acknowledged the issue and offered a number for owners to call for help. If your S6 Edge does not rotate properly, you may need to call Samsung for a fix or replacement. This is not a widespread problem, but Computerworld shares the following information.

Samsung is aware of an issue affecting screen rotation on a very limited number of Galaxy S6 Edge devices and a solution is already available. Owners who believe their device may be affected should call 1-800-SAMSUNG for support.

If this is a sporadic issue, a factory reset may solve the problem, but otherwise you will need to reach out to Samsung.

How to Fix Galaxy S6 Edge GPS Problems

For some Galaxy S6 Edge owners, GPS location accuracy is not spot on. This is something we’ve run into while using the Smart Lock feature and other complaints from Galaxy S6 Edge owners.

Start by going to Settings -> Location and making sure that Location is On and that the Locating Method is set to High Accuracy. You may need to toggle the settings on and off or switch between methods at least once to get the settings to take place. Right out of the box some Galaxy S6 Edge models are only set to Power Saving, which limits how GPS works in many essential apps.

On the main Location screen, you can also see how apps are using GPS, and potentially find another problem

    Every now and then, my phone screen flashes a bright white and then won’t show me the screen. When I try to turn it on it shows a flickering screen. I tried rebooting it with the Home, Power, and Volume Down button but it didn’t work. It turned off, but when I turned it back on, the same blank screen came on. Heelp!

    Today I got my second S6 Edge. That 2 in the last 9 days. Both give “Network Error Occurred” errors when sending pics over text either on or off wifi. Both drop calls. Both are staticey at times. Glad to see that I’m not the only one experiencing the same issue. I’ll be returning this device tomorrow as I’ve already spent to much time troubleshooting with AT&T with no resolve. Doesn’t look like it’s their fault. Not acceptable.

    My S6 edge has twice recently become unresponsive. The blue light flashes at the top but it won’t respond to any commands just a black screen. The first time it corrected itself, the second time I used the hold home button together with the power & volume down button to reboot the phone which brought it back to life…. until the next time but at least i can get it working again.

    Regarding your instructions to clear the cache:
    “The first thing to try is clearing the Galaxy S6 Edge cache. Clearing the cache requires a short procedure that we outline below.

    Turn the Galaxy S6 Edge off.
    Press and hold Home, Power and Volume Down buttons simultaneously until the device vibrates.”

    When I did this, it did a factory reset and I am very unhappy about this. I’m currently re-installing everything.

    My Samsung edge 6 plus just suddenly wouldn’t open, won’t take my finger print and back up pass word. Brought it to the shop after 2 days of hoping it will resolve. They reset the phone but now the touch screen just wouldn’t work. It’s stressing me out!

    I am having the same problem as July. Suddenly it won’t recognize my fingerprint or backup password. I really cant afford to have a complete reset as I have so much information that will be lost. Are there any other options or someway of getting data off before resetting?
