Samsung Galaxy S6 gets its first post-Android 5.1.1 update

The Galaxy S6 seems to be getting its first software update after Android 5.1.1, with one of our Twitter followers tipping us off about a 230 MB update that has appeared in France. Carrying build number G920FXXU2BOG8, the update has Samsung’s usual vague description for what’s new and what’s changed, so we’re guessing its purpose is to fix and improve whatever problems were introduced in Android 5.1.1.

Battery life has been one major concern for users that are rocking Android 5.1.1 on their Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, and we hope it’s something the new update addresses. We aren’t seeing it on Kies or in any other region just yet, but the update should be making its way to more users (and the Galaxy S6 edge) over the course of the next few days. If you’re unwilling to wait, you can head into the Settings » About device » Software updates menu and check if there’s a new update waiting.

Anyone seeing the update on their Galaxy S6?

Thanks, Fung Yang!

Update: The Galaxy S6 edge is now getting a similar update carrying build number G925FXXU2BOGB.

Just got it today on my s6 edge from U.S. Cellular. I am really surprised at how quickly it came! I have the refreshed app looks, along with the new edge features (ability to change the location of my edge, the addition of apps edge, and the addition of oncircle…which I’m not too certain how to use yet) and the camera tweaks (live broadcasting). I also have the Samsung Pay app which tells me that it will be launching fully on the 28th of September, I am dying to try it out:) I do still, however, have the issue with… Read more »

Received the update in Bangalore. About 237MB. I don’t see much difference in RAM usage (in smart manager), it still between 75-85%. Though I don’t see that as an issue because RAM is there to be used by the Apps. After the update didn’t see much difference in the performance, may be because I didn’t any issues before update. The wallpaper motion option is still available in the wallpapers section (though didn’t try it). The Auto stop feature of Apps in the smart manager is still available as well, there is a separate tab called “manage apps”. I noticed a… Read more »

I got mine, not noticing any changes aside from the ram dropping to around 70-80% whenever I close the apps, before this update it’s always around 85-90% even when the apps are closed. Yes wallpaper motion effect not working and I’m still observing my battery.

Somethings up with Google play services..it ate 21% of my battery but only says it stayed awake for 3 min smh anybody else having that problem?????

I had that problem last week, but the new google play services update fixed the glich. You can fine the apk here: apkmirror.com. If that don’t help. Boot up in safe mode and let the phone run there for couple of minutes and then boot back to normal. That helped me to get rid of huge google play services drain/glitch on my battery stats before the new update.
