Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Troubleshooting

Welcome to our Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Troubleshooting page. It will contain all links to our posts about the Galaxy S6 Edge, the designer version of the company’s 2015 flagship smartphone. While the device is offered on a higher price range, we believe it will become a hit with its wraparound screen. That is why it’s necessary for us to create a separate troubleshooting page for it.

Samsung-Galaxy-S6-Edge-Layout

This page will be updated each week until such time we stop providing support for the device and will contain all problems, questions, glitches, errors, tutorials, how tos, guides, FAQs, tips and tricks. We suggest you bookmark this page if you own a Galaxy S6 Edge as we assure you it will be a great resource in the future.

We are always willing to help our readers fix their problems, so we dedicated a mailbox for them. If you’re one of the users that may encounter issues, feel free to send us the specific issues you are experiencing at our Android Questionnaire form. Bear in mind that we will spend time to read your email, research on your problem and write solutions, troubleshooting guides and/or our suggestions. So, please, do your part! Provide all necessary details and information about your phone, its behavior and the symptoms of the problem(s).

Always include in your email the model of your phone, the Android version it’s running, when the problem started, what the symptoms are, what troubleshooting you’ve done (if you did some), and the behavior of the phone before and after the problem emerged. Help us help you!
