Galaxy S6 Edge’s cover stripping off:

Although this is just an issue with Galaxy S6, its best to have a solution at hand in the case of the Edge S6. Though most users would have wanted a removable back cover for the Samsung Galaxy S6, this problem can be pretty annoying. The back cover of the Samsung S6 striping off is not because of a battery bulge, or your battery overheating, if you haven’t been mishandling your phone then there is no reason to be panic, this can happen for no reason at all.

Solution:

The easiest solution would be simply using a strong glue or a thin double sided tape to stick it down again. While doing this be very careful not to let the glue go anywhere it shouldn’t, like the phone’s vital ports. If you don’t want the hassle and you are still covered by a warranty, you should probably head over to your retailer.

There have only just been isolated reports on the problem, so it is too early to determine if it’s a general problem the Galaxy S6 series.

The LED camera of the Galaxy S6 Edge won’t switch off:

When introduced most users were happy to see that the LED Camera was working but not so pleased when it refused to turn off. Initially the problem was related only to T-mobile users but later on it was discovered that it was also an issue on unlocked phones as well as other branded devices with the carrier.

Solution:

The Android 5.1.1 upgrade is your solution, so if you updated your Galaxy S6 Edge, you should probably consider it.

The Galaxy S6 Edge Swift-Key Keyboard Security Loophole:

The onscreen Swift-key keyboard on Samsung handsets such as the S6 and the S6 Edge, has been confirmed to have a security problem. Though an update to fix the issue is yet to be released, there is still a solution.

Solution:

While users wait for an update to be released, users can either install a third party app or uninstall the Samsung keyboard. However if you want to do the latter, your device needs to be rooted then a Titanium Backup installed. On the application’s Backup/Restore option, users can simply uninstall the Samsung Keyboard app then restart their device. Now you can install your third party keyboard app of choice.
