Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge was the first Dual-edged curved smartphone on the market, the device's sales was higher than expected. Today, BBC reported that the Korean giant is struggling to meet the S6 Edge supply demand.
The reason of this shortage is that the curved screen of the Edge is very difficult to manufacture, it takes a long complicated process that leads on delays in the production line.
"Samsung will have a serious issue if the shortage is due to the difficulty of producing the curved screen. They [Samsung] must succeed in the launch of these new flagship phones to regain leadership in the high-end segment. They have a window of opportunity until the new iPhone comes out. The product and design is great - but [it] lacks service differentiation." - Mobile analyst, Thomas Husson at Forrester told the BBC
A rare and somewhat weird problem has begun to surface with the Galaxy A3 (2016), post the Android 7.0 Nougat update. Apparently, a large number of Galaxy A3 (2016) users are finding it impossible to get their device to take charge once the battery reaches 87% or so. Although the cause for this issue remains unknown, one thing which can be said for sure is the fact that this issue appeared only after Samsung updated the device to Android 7.0 Nougat.
The usual tricks as instructed by the Samsung care executives did not work either. Apparently, clearing the cache or even factory data resets are ineffective for some reason and that's a worrying fact if you own the handset. You can try charging the handset in Safe Mode, but that did not work either, as reported by many users. We are hopeful that Samsung will address the issue soon by releasing an OTA patch, but it remains to be seen when that happens. Stay tuned to YouMobile for more information on the subject.
