Albeit unofficially, Samsung addresses RAM management issues on the Galaxy S6

If you’ve been following SamMobile lately, you would have read about the poor RAM management that has been affecting the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge. It certainly isn’t something you expect on a flagship phone of 2015, let alone on any phone that costs as much as the S6/S6 edge. However, based on what we’ve just learnt, it appears as though Samsung has not only acknowledged, but also addressed the poor RAM management.

“I’ve personally been irritated by the horrendous RAM management on my Galaxy S6 edge – apps like WhatsApp and Facebook, which usually stay in memory and show up instantly on devices with 2GB+ RAM, often take time to load as the phone keeps killing their processes,” is what Abhijeet had to say about the issue. Thankfully, Samsung is taking care of these issues one at a time via means of micro-updates.

Responding to a user’s query around the same issue, Samsung UK said that the company would be rolling out updates that would correct the issue.

As usual, we’ll be the first ones to inform you about the updates and the efficacy of the same. Meanwhile, let us know what you think about the issue in all!

Google officially address a memory leak problem on lollypop. This DO NOT happen on kitkat which works PERFECT. Unfortunately, upgrading very fast to lollypop is not recommended until the platform is stable. There should be a fix on 5.1 onwards, but the devices on 5.0.1 and 5.0.2 will suffer a lot of application close suddenly, memory leaks, etc. So , i recommend either stay on kitkat or wait some more months until 5.1 or newer are ready

5.1.1 is already out, as always, Samsung take forever to properly update their devices. That has always been one of the main critical points of Samsung, slow to update or patch devices.
If they would be more constant on these field, they would get more customers also, many people stay away from Samsung or switched away for this very reason.

That´s normal I guess. When I purchased the S4, it was so slow and laggy out of the box. But after two or three updates that came days after, the phone became beautifully smooth and performed well.

This means nothing, they scream the same lines to users on twitter asking about fixes for the S5. You’d see the Samsung UK FB/Twitter accounts fog users off with replies like these. Unlocked Samsung Note 4 users knew Lollipop was out for the UK variant before these accounts.
