Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge Users Notice Poor RAM Management
Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are being critically acclaimed by many users. The Korean company has not given a chance to the critics to find out flaws in the two devices. We had not heard any problem from the users on any forums or blogs but now a new problem has been reported that is found in both devices.
It is probably the first problem pointed out in the two flagships, but it looks like it can easily be fixed with a software update (sorry Apple fans).
Many Galaxy S6 owners reported on the XDA forums that they are experiencing poor RAM management on their devices. As a result, apps crash on their phones more often than older devices.

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. It’s a problem with browsing as well. Chrome will often reload when you go back to it, even if you have only opened one other app after sending it to the background.
However, it is clear that the issue can be fixed with a software update as it is related to software. The issue resides in Android 5.0 Lollipop, so it is not Samsung’s fault completely.
Also, it is not something that should stop you from purchasing Samsung Galaxy S6 as it is currently the best phone out there with awesome specs and camera.
