Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge really managed to capture our attention, but we must also admit that if you really want to get the most out of your new Android smartphone, you should grant root access so you can overclock, boost the performance, create a longer lasting battery and more. Despite of all these advantages, this doesn’t have to mean that there are no occasional problems that you might stumble upon and here we have another example.

Sadly, there are more and more users complaining about the loss of deep sleep after root. Do you suspect that you might be one of them as well? It is better to find out than leaving the problem to solve on its own (this will never happen, by the way), so we recommend to check if your Galaxy S6 Edge smartphone is indeed experiencing this issue by installing CPUspy.
