Samsung acknowledges a major Galaxy S6 problem, unofficially promises a fix

The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge may be Samsung’s best smartphones yet, and they’re certainly some of the best Android handsets you can purchase right now, but that doesn’t mean they’re flaw-free.

Apparently, neither model manages RAM memory very well, which can lead to apps crashing more frequently than expected, especially for flagship devices.

However, Samsung appears to be familiar with the problem, and the company plans to fix in upcoming updates. More →
