1. Marshmallow device screen bug

After upgrading the device's operating system to the latest version of the OS, some users have reported problems with rendering colors on their device's screen. The problem is faded colors when playing videos, both those stored on the player, YouTube or other streaming services.

If your smartphone is displaying this bug, unfortunately there is still no solution to fix this issue. However, the Android team is already working to release an operating system update and correct such an error. More information you can find on the official bug information page on Android.

2. Random Restarts with Marshmallow

The common problem is the incompatibility of new APIs that have not yet been optimized for Android 6.0 Marshmallow. At first, this problem can be solved by reinstalling some applications that were previously embedded in the device as well as restoring factory settings.

If you just installed Marshmallow on your device, go to the Google Play Store and update all pending apps. Another important tip is to clear the cache of already installed apps. To do so, go to: Settings> Applications> Select Application> Storage and select Clear data.

If the problem persists, choose to restore the device to factory settings. V at: Settings> Backup> Restore Factory Data.

3. Poor performance with Marshmallow

If your smartphone performance has declined since you upgraded, this issue may be related to the amount of RAM your system occupies. To free memory just clear the device cache:

  • Restart the device in Recovery mode;
  • A list of options will appear, search for "Wipe data cache";
  • Remember that to navigate in this mode you must use the volume and power keys of the device.

4. Marshmallow Battery Problems

The new version of Android requires good processing power, so some users are reporting that the OS is draining the device battery quickly. If the new Twelve mode is not solving the problem, the way is to manage individual consumption of each application manually.

First, make sure that GPS and Wi-Fi location services are not active, they can contribute to power consumption when turned off. If the battery keeps draining fast, go to the battery settings and see the power consumption per app: Settings> Battery. If per-app management doesn't help you, the only viable alternative is to restore the device to factory settings.

5. Marshmallow Battery Charging Problems

New Android updates may impact device load time. You will notice that they happen more slowly. First, make sure your charger and cable are in good condition, and always always opt for the original charger of the device. These problems with first loadings are common. Follow the instructions below if your device is experiencing battery charging issues after upgrading to Marshmallow:

  • Plug the charger into an outlet and then to your device. Wait a minute and see if the charging cone appears on the screen. Then press the power button for at least 15 seconds and see if the power turns on;
  • If your device still shows no sign of charging or not turning on, keep it plugged in for at least an hour. After 60 minutes, disconnect the charger and reconnect after 10 seconds. Now press the power button for 15 seconds and wait for the device to turn on again.

6. Marshmallow Wi-Fi Problems

The first issues with Android Marshmallow were reported by Nexus 5 owners, and involved connections to the Wi-Fi network. Initially, we recommend that you restart your can or router and connect the device with a new IP – if your IP is dynamic. Reconnect your device to Wi-Fi and see if this instability resolves.

Before connecting the device, clear the old password reminder so that the device forgets the data of the previous connection. For this, go to: Settings> Wi-Fi> Click on Three Points> Forget This Network.

7. Marshmallow Mobile Data Issues

Many devices have had this issue in the past with other Android updates, with Marshmallow, this issue happens in isolation on some devices. To try to resolve this issue, we recommend that you restart your device in flight mode with the active data connection, and after that turn off flight mode and try Chrome.

If the issue is not resolved, choose to do a clean install by resetting the device to its factory settings.

8. Bluetooth Issues with Marshmallow

Problems with Bluetooth are more complex to solve, mainly due to the variety of devices that use this technology in different versions which, moreover, are controlled by software that is not always compatible with the latest version of Android.

First, try restarting the device and test Bluetooth. You can also locate the software that controls Bluetooth and pay for your data or check for updates to it, go to: Settings> Applications> All and find the "Bluetooth".

9. Menu Sharing Content Bug – Direct Contacts

If you upgraded your Android operating system to Marshmallow, you may be experiencing a boring issue when sharing content with your direct contacts. The mistake is to immediately load your direct contacts when you touch the share button of any apps, such as Google+. Suddenly direct contacts appear over the channels available for content sharing.

The solution came with the OS update for Android 6.0.1. So if you have a Nexus device, take advantage of factory images already available and update your smartphone's operating system to fix such a bug. At this time, users from manufacturers like LG and Motorola have not yet reported that they have the same bug.
