Samsung Has Admitted That the Galaxy S6 Has Quite a Big Problem

By Tom Pritchard on at

Samsung's Galaxy S6 is a fairly nice phone, but there seems to be a problem in that some handsets are having problems with performance. The reason? Both the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge appear to be mismanaging their RAM.

It's not that the phone doesn't have enough RAM, 3GB is more than enough, it's just that the RAM is filling up to quickly and the phone's closing things down to free up space. According to Android Community it gets so bad that only 200-400MB of RAM is free at any given time. That means the Galaxy S6 is using up to 2.5GB for basic functions.

Thankfully Samsung is aware of the issue, and told one user on Facebook that it will be rolling out 'micro updates' to correct the problem. Now if only it could admit that ditching expandable storage was the wrong thing to do, that'd be great. [TechRadar]
