Samsung Galaxy S6: Even Nougat Would Fall Short
There’s no denying that the Samsung Galaxy S6 and its Edge variant are prone to overheating which leads to quick and damning battery drain issues, as reported by many users.
So, it wasn’t all that surprising when Samsung went big with the “liquid cooling” system in the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. The manufacturer even expanded its battery capacity from 2,550mAh and 2,600mAh in the Galaxy S6/S6 Edge to 3,000mAh and 3,600mAh in the Galaxy S7/S7 Edge.
This move had really improved the devices’ battery life but it didn’t do any good to those who had already purchased the Galaxy S6/S6 Edge.
Well, it looks like they have no other choice but to curb their mobile usage for the sake of the battery life. They could uninstall power-hungry app such as Facebook but at the the end of the day, it is the hardware that is the culprit.
Some folks had thought that a major software update could solve this frustrating issue but that turned out to be wrong.
Android Marshmallow, boasting the Doze Mode and efficiency enhancements, was supposed to fix the Galaxy S6 duo’s overheating problem but even that failed.
So, it’s best that you let go of any hopes that the Android 7.1.1 Nougat will be able to rectify the issue. Maybe the latest Samsung Experience UI could alleviate this but even that isn’t a guarantee.
