T-Mobile update to Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge sent to improve battery life

T-Mobile update to Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge sent to improve battery life
Good news for T-Mobile subscribers currently rocking the Samsung Galaxy S6 or Samsung Galaxy S6 edge. Both handsets have received an OTA update today that improves battery life. And if there is one thing in the world that you can't have too much of, it's battery life on your phone. The new baseband version for the Galaxy S6 is G920TUVU2COF8. For the Galaxy S6 edge it is G925TUVU2COF8.

The Galaxy S6 edge is not only receiving a boost to its battery life, the update is also removing an error message that some users were receiving. The message, "Unfortunately, Cocktailbar service has stopped,"  has been spotted on the screens of some Galaxy S6 edge units employing the Space Odyssey theme or a downloaded one.

Since the update is sent on a staggered basis, you might not receive it for a few days. If you can't wait, you can try to coax out the update by going to Settings > About device > Software update > Ok. The updates weigh in at 102.97MB. And as usual, we suggest using a Wi-Fi connection when updating your phone. In addition, make sure that your battery is charged to at least 50% before starting the updating process.


Thanks for the tip!

Updates have been rolling out earlier today in various regions so you're a bit slow with the news.

Yes but unlike this update the update for the UK model am-g925f as fixed the ram problem with my edge, here is my post over athttp://www.sammobile.com/2015/07/27/samsung-galaxy-s6-gets-its-first-post-android-5-1-1-update/ "I have just installed the new update the ram problem as been fixed, just been teasing with my note 4, it statted closing apps at the same time as my note 4 also when you go to the app switcher and close all apps, it free up the ram, unlike before where it did nothing to you went to the ram manger and did a clear out, so they have 100% sorted ram, I have no idea about battery as just installed, but the phone is now supper fast and faster than when I 1st got it day one, I say big upgrade , gone have the home screen redraws when you come out of games, the camera now loads faster than the g4′ it’s now supper fast, also phone runs fast even when installers and updating themes unlike before, so today they done a big update if the battery good I did not think this phone can get faster, but it as now does all things better than my note 4, very cool, I be thinking they used the 6 edge + update Please note all the themes look to have an update, so best to update them all before using them"

One is a network fix because they have no idea what they doing and the other is a full Samsung update, with all problems sorted, I.e. USA network problems as always

I don't see 'More' option from the 'Settings' that gets me to VoLTE to disable it. I have the S6 Edge.

Chrome and the recent app switcher is still laggy. No fix on the memory issue. I opened chrome imgur snapchat and then went back to chrome and the the web page reloaded.

Unless that update, removes the current battery and puts in a bigger one, forget about it.

The battery life on my S6 went to sh*t after the 5.1.1 update. I hope this update comes here too.
