While Galaxy S7 users have complained that the flagship contains too much bloatware, and app icons become even more crowded when installing new applications, Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge owners connected to Verizon just received an update that cleaned up their screens, by removing some preexisting bloatware, but which includes bug fixes, as well.
Until now, there were some problems with the Google Play store, as bugs were preventing users to download or update applications. These bugs are now gone and Samsung has also fixed an issue that affected Visual Voice Mail, as users didn’t have access to it.
As for Google Search, now it’s found under the settings and video calls will be answered in the same way as it’s done with voice calls. The Amazon Music app has been removed, but users can decide to keep it, while when plugging a USB cable into the phone/s, the default mode will automatically show File Transfer and other USB options.
One of the additions is “Send Premium SMS”, which is found in the Application manager settings and by going to Settings > Applications > Application manager > More, users will be able to know how much RAM specific applications are currently using.
The update should reach all Galaxy S6 and S6 Ede devices connected to Verizon in the next days, but users can see if the update is available for their phones by heading to Home > Applications > Settings > About Device > Software updates.
Both the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge come with a 5-inch Super AMOLED display with a QHD resolution (the latter device has its screen curved on both sides), they are powered by an Exynos 7420 octa core processor with four cores clocked at 1.5GHz and four cores running at 2.1GHz, which are backed by 3GB of RAM. Also, there are three variants of internal memories with capacities of 32, 64 and 128GB, but which aren’t expandable, and the two cameras have resolutions of 16MP and 5MP.
