Congratulations to our first #Amazon #Giveaway #winner April Wallace who won the prize of a free @BT_Waves #Bluetooth #headset! And big thank you to all 773 participants for making the campaign successful!
Galaxy S6, one of the best device from Samsung came with various excellent features and there are very few smartphones in the market which can compete with this phone. But some owners of this great phone started complaining about several issues that they are facing with the phone. Galaxy S6 Bluetooth issue is one of them. But it does not indicate that this is a defective handset. The good news is that various ways are there following which this problem can be solved without replacing the phone or running to the technician. Here we will discuss the possible ways to fix the Bluetooth issue on your Galaxy S6.
The first method is to simply switch the Bluetooth off and then on again. To do so, head towards Settings and scroll to the connection tab. Next, select Bluetooth and toggle it to off. Wait for few seconds and on it again to see if the issue is resolved then.
If the above method does not work out for you, then again go to the Bluetooth option > Connection tab and forget the device or devices that have issues. Once the process is completed, reconnect the device and check.
Clearing the cache to remove the Bluetooth data is another helpful step to get rid of the issue. Temporary data is stored in the cache for better performance at the time of switching between apps. But too much of cache can give rise to various issues so it is better to clear it. This problem usually occurs when you try to connect to your car Bluetooth devices. However, here are the steps:
Next, you can boot the device in safe mode to see if it is any third party app is creating the issue. Safe mood will disable all the third party apps. Here is how to boot the device in safe mode.
If everything works fine in the Safe mode, it means that one of the apps is causing the issue. What you should do is to delete third-party apps one by one until the problem is resolved (start with the applications you installed recently), or perform a factory data reset.
The final method is to put the phone in recovery mode and then wipe the cache partition if other methods fail to solve the Galaxy S6 Bluetooth bug. Here is how to do that:
One thing you should know is that the instruction manual of that particular Bluetooth device which you want to pair with your phone should be referred. Check which code is needed to pair the device, 1234 or 0000 are used frequently.
Then you have to configure the device in order to search for other Bluetooth devices. You will see ‘Next’, click on it to see further instructions.
If you have this problem, it’s NOT your fault. And it’s not a matter of “just trying harder next time.” If the solution was willpower alone, you would’ve fixed this problem a long time ago!
Focus and motivation actually come from your dopamine levels.
What’s dopamine? It’s a chemical that tells our brain to do things. Without dopamine, your brain turns to mush and you forget how to focus. If you struggle with productivity, lack of dopamine is probably your main culprit.
The good news is, you can easily and quickly regain dopamine by doing the following things:
Explore new stuff. Your brain is wired for innovation. It’s fascinated by new things! So take time to explore stuff you don’t know on Wikipedia. Try a new hobby. Check out a new TV show. You’re not obligated to learn a whole new language, but take 10 minutes a day to try something new. Boredom literally kills your brain and makes you dumb and unproductive.
List your small tasks. Dopamine isn’t picky. It gets released into your body whenever you accomplish something, and it doesn’t care whether that task is big or small. That’s why you feel so good when you check stuff off a list no matter how silly. So make a note of all your to dos, and proudly check them off when you’re done. The dopamine hit will keep you focused and motivated.
Listen to music. Why do you think music is so popular? It’s literally food for your brain. Just make sure it’s music you enjoy.
Increase your tyrosine. Tyrosine makes dopamine, so you need a lot of it. Good sources of tyrosine include almonds, cheese, soybeans, beef, and eggs.
Exercise … even a little bit. Everybody says exercise reduces your stress and makes you a healthier person, and it’s true. But your brain actually rewards exercise by releasing endorphins and dopamine, which make you happy and more productive. Get up from your desk right now and take a walk. Your body and brain will thank you, and you’ll get more done today.
Track your wins. Your brain responds to streaks the same way it does with checking off a checklist: dopamine release! If you succeed at getting to the gym every day this week, mark it on your calendar.
Make cool stuff. Ever notice that zen state you get whenever you’re totally immersed in your work? Sometimes we call it “the zone” or “being in the flow.” Whatever you call it, it feels awesome. And yes, it releases dopamine. If you’ve been meaning to get back into an old hobby like painting, photography, or repairing stuff, now’s a good time to do it.
Meditate. How cool is your brain? Even doing nothing from time to time will release dopamine! Seriously though, your brain works hard and needs regular breaks so it can recover.
Dopamine’s addictive but in a good way. Let it serve you well and you’ll be able to accomplish a lot of cool stuff!

BT Waves Bluetooth Headset uses lithium-ion polymer battery.
Here is an extraction on how to prolong the life of a lithium-ion battery, with great technical explanation.
1. Avoid full discharges and charge the battery more often between uses, but do not keep it in fully charged status for an extended time.
Partial discharge on Li-ion is fine. A partial discharge reduces stress and prolongs battery life. There is no memory and the battery does not need periodic full discharge cycles to prolong life. Similar to a mechanical device that wears out faster with heavy use, the depth of discharge (DoD) determines the cycle count of the battery. The smaller the discharge (low DoD), the longer the battery will last.
Be aware though keeping the battery in fully charged status for an extended time can be more harmful than cycling.
2. Avoid exposing the battery to high temperature.
Lithium-ion suffers from stress when exposed to heat. Elevated temperature (above 30°C or 86°F) hastens permanent capacity loss.
3. For optimal performance, charge the battery at a voltage of 3.92V/cell.
High charge voltage also stresses lithium-ion batterys. For most Li-ion a voltage above 4.10V/cell is deemed as high voltage. Most Li-ions charge to 4.20V/cell, and every reduction in peak charge voltage of 0.10V/cell is said to double the cycle life. On the negative side, a lower peak charge voltage reduces the capacity the battery stores. In terms of longevity, the optimal charge voltage is 3.92V/cell. Battery experts believe that this threshold eliminates all voltage-related stresses; going lower may not gain further benefits but induce other symptoms.

Noise-cancelling headphones come in either active or passive types. BT Waves Blurtooth headphones use active noise cancelling technology that adds an extra level of noise reduction by actively erasing lower-frequency sound waves. The headphones actually create their own sound waves that mimic the incoming noise in every respect except one: the headphone’s sound waves are 180 degrees out of phase with the intruding noise waves.
The sound wave coming from BT Waves noise-cancelling headphones and the one associated with the ambient noise have the same amplitude and frequency, but their crests and troughs (compressions and rarefactions) are arranged so that the crests (compressions) of one wave line up with the troughs (rarefactions) of the other wave and vice versa. In essence, the two waves cancel each other out. The result: the listener can focus on the sound coming from the headphones.
That means between 20 and 25 degrees C. The worst thing that can happen to a lithium-ion battery is to have a full charge and be subjected to elevated temperatures. So don’t leave or charge your mobile device’s battery in your car if it’s hot out. Heat is by far the largest factor when it comes to reducing lithium-ion battery life.
Unlike NiCad batteries, lithium-ion batteries do not have a charge memory. That means deep-discharge cycles are not required. In fact, it’s better for the battery to use partial-discharge cycles.
There is one exception. Battery experts suggest that after 30 charges, you should allow lithium-ion batteries to almost completely discharge. Continuous partial discharges create a condition called digital memory, decreasing the accuracy of the device’s power gauge. So let the battery discharge to the cut-off point and then recharge. The power gauge will be recalibrated.
If a lithium-ion battery is discharged below 2.5 volts per cell, a safety circuit built into the battery opens and the battery appears to be dead. The original charger will be of no use. Only battery analyzers with the boost function have a chance of recharging the battery.
Also, for safety reasons, do not recharge deeply discharged lithium-ion batteries if they have been stored in that condition for several months.
Storing the battery fully charged means oxidation of lithium-ion is at its highest rate. Storing lithium-ion batteries at 40 percent discharge and in the refrigerator (not freezer) is recommended
