  5. Turn it on and this may fix the issue.

  • Does “System Dump”‘s phone dialer still work with its *#9900# keys? If so, then nothing happened when I tried it. 🙁 Is it because this used Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge requires a SIM card for the phone service for it to work?

    I am also having a very slow battery charging with USB cable connected to two/2 different (laptop/notebook)s [Apple MacBook Pro [2013] and Lenovo Thinkpad). It went from about 15% to about 60% in about 3/three hours! iPhone 6 charges way faster (15% to 80% in about a couple hours).

    I just recently upgraded my phone to the s6 edge plus from the note 4 edge phone and immediately noticed how much slower the charging time was. I had my screen display set really low, I closed all the apps, and just couldn’t figure it out. Right now, it was plugged in to the charger with the battery showing 50% charged. In the notifications screen it showed “3 hours until fully charged”!!!! I did the system dump per your site, and it immediately changed to 48 minutes until fullly charged! Thank you sooooo much!
