No company wants to hear their new flagship product has issues but unfortunately that has become all too common as financially gifted and tattooed Apple fans are well aware. It would seem that Samsung is also having launch pains as users are seeing problems with RAM allocation. The Inquirer reports that the phone will use up to 2.5GB for simple tasks, with Chrome being a major memory thief. The programs do still run and the issue is not causing crashes, instead you can expect to see some stuttering and a lot of refreshes when you return to an app that has lost focus, even for a short time. Samsung is aware of the problem and working on incremental updates which you can pick up via Update Now under Settings.
"SAMSUNG HAS ADMITTED that the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are suffering performance problems due to a RAM management fault."
