AndroidPolice have tested the Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge+ against the Nexus 6 and found out that despite the humongous 4GB of RAM on Samung’s new flagships, background apps are being aggressively shut down:
The issue was readily reproducible on both our S6 edge+ and Note 5 review units, and we aren’t the first people to point this out. Essentially, if you run an app on the S6 edge+ or Note 5, then subsequently open four or five other apps in the meantime, going back to that first app almost invariably results in a full “reflow” of the application – meaning longer load times and more data usage.
Here is the video of the test:
