Answers to Smart Manager FAQs with Galaxy S6 Edge+

Some new owners of the Galaxy S6 Edge+ claimed that the battery remaining time on Smart Manager is not displayed. This is normal because Smart Manager application requires the battery consumption pattern analysis for it to calculate the remaining time. Moreover, the usage time remaining is estimated based on your usage pattern for a few days. This means you’ve got to spend a few more hours or a day from the first booting for the application to be able to do the calculation.
