What is Samsung Galaxy S6 Smart Manager?
The Galaxy S6 Smart Manager provides an overview of the status of your device’s battery, storage, RAM, and system security.
You can also automatically optimize the device with one tap of your finger
Please note, part of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Smart Manager actually is actually from Clean Master, a popular Android app in mass, but infamous in geek world.
There are 4 components in Galaxy S6 Smart Manager:
- Battery. Actually it is just a link to Settings— Battery.
- Storage. This part is from Clean Master. This can help you clean some junk files. Actually, this is the only useful part of Clean Master.
- RAM. This part is from Clean Master. It is supposed to close apps to make Galaxy S6 faster. But it won’t! This is the useless and misleading part. Android does NOT need this. Do NOT use this feature. It will slow down your Galaxy S6 and may cause battery drain. If you want to make sure the apps are in proper state, try to install Greenify.
- Security. This actually McAfee Mobile Security & Antivirus. Again, this probably is a useless feature for Android. But if you have the habit of getting dubious files or apps from internet or unknown sources, this “may” slightly help you. But do not expect too much.
How to use Galaxy S6 Smart Manager?
You can find Galaxy S6 Smart Manager in Apps screen.

For Galaxy S6 Smart Manager, my recommendation for you is to use only 2 (two features): battery and storage.

How to use Galaxy S6 Smart Manager to check battery usage?
As mentioned, the battery feature in Galaxy S6 Smart Manager is only a link to Settings— Battery.
It allows you to check the remaining battery power and time to use Galaxy S6. If needed, you can conserve battery power by activating power saving features and closing apps that are
consuming an excessive amount of battery power.
The usage time left shows the time remaining before the battery power runs out. Usage time left may vary depending on your Galaxy S6 settings and operating
conditions. It is very inaccurate.
When the phone is being charged, it will show estimated remaining charging time.
You can tap Battery Usage as shown below to get the graphic of battery drain and predicated (less accurate than weather forecasting) drain. But it gives you a very rough idea when to charge Galaxy S6 battery.
The battery usage page also list the battery usage by different apps.
Of Course, Galaxy S6 Smart Manager may also report abnormal battery usage by certain bad apps.
How to use Galaxy S6 Smart Manager to clean junk files?
Galaxy S6 Smart Manager can check the status of used and available storage capacity. You can delete unused and junk
files or uninstall apps that you do not use any more.
Because of lack of SD card support, you will find your storage is running low very quickly.
In the Storage page of Galaxy S6 Smart Manager, you will find how the storage is used. You can tap Detail to drill down the storage usage for your Galaxy S6 or S6 edge.
You can also tap DELETE as shown below to clean unnecessary files, including cache, and ghost files. Please note, the cache will be rebuilt when the app is launch again. So this will not increase too much usable storage for you.
Why you should NOT use Galaxy S6 Smart Manager RAM Manager?
I don’t want to write a lengthy paragraph to show you how Android manages RAM.
The quick answer is: unnecessary.
Android has arguably the best RAM management system. Using RAM optimization in Galaxy S6 Smart Manager will just mess up the system.
