Folks who have either variant of the Galaxy S6 on T-Mobile are getting a treat this morning, in the form of an update.  It’s not a huge update, but there’s something significant in changelog:  “Battery improvements”.

If you’ve been tracking the Galaxy S6 at all, I’m sure you’ve heard that its battery life is nothing to write home about.  Actually, it’s quite poor for a flagship these days.  Therefore, any said battery improvement stands out like a sore thumb.

In addition, the ~ 103 MB update is bringing “Various bug fixes and device improvements” to both models.  The S6 Edge is receiving a Cocktailbar error fix on top of that, which pertains to a “Unfortunately, Cocktailbar service has stopped” issue in the Edge Screen settings.

It was reported that the phones had a recurring battery drain bug with VoLTE, so hopefully the battery improvements address this.  Hit up your Software update button (Settings>About Device) to see if the OTA update has reached you.  For the impatient folk, you can grab the download via the source links below.

    • Agreed. This was one of the first problems I noticed on mine. My Nexus 6 didn’t have this issue
