    hi guys
    i just received report on my end, my Unity 5 andriod build is not working on Galaxy S6 Lollipop 5.1.1.

    is Lollipop 5.1.1 currently not supported? i can see even when in the latest U5.1.1 editor, only lollipop 5.0(api lv 21) is included.

    or was it something that i set wrong in player setting?

    i dont hav lollipop device on hands, so i really cant test it myself

    cheers

    What do you mean when you say it's not working?

    I've been having one where my app gets stuck on the splash screen, wondering if it was the same thing. There's been a lot of talk about this one though.

    AFAIK, Android Lollipop (5.0 or 5.1.1) are supported...

    You can try to reproduce the issue using an emulator, or try to get a hold of a device.

    Also, you should install a crash/error reporting framework (also one that operates at the native level, not only for scripting code).

    With such a system, you could probably get some more information on the source of error.

    Lastly, if your game is published to the google play store, there's also a section on crashes in their dashboard so you can check out if there are any reports of crashes there.

    *This is all suggestions that are related to crashes. If the game simply halts on startup that's a different thing though.

    Hi, I have exactly the same problem (Unity5, Lollipop 5.1.1, S6) ... Have you found out how to get your Unity project running on the S6?

    We have the same problem and wait for fix ASAP.
    Actually the app doesn't crash - all the logic processes normally. But after some time it stops drawing the frames. If you hide the application and then switch back occasionally you will see the new frame after which all the drawing fails again.

    I'm on 5.2.0f1 and one of my testers is experiencing this problem. Has the fix in 5.1.2 not made it over to the 5.2 branch yet?

    One thing my testers are reporting is that they are still getting game audio, just no rendering. Are you guys experiencing the same thing (could be 2 different issues)? Occurring on an Samsung S6, Note Pro, and Note 10.1.

    I'm having issues with the latest Unity 5.2.0f3 with Android 5.1.1 aslo, The sound quality is very bad and stutter like crazy.
    I downgraded to 5.1.3 and it fixed the sound issues.

    Did you build and push it from Unity or install the apk manually?
    This happen to me, but it only happen if I build it and push it to my phone.

    I've been putting them on drive and installing direct into the phone. I have no idea why it works on any other android device, but not S6! Still haven't heard back from my testers about the sound.
