    I've had my Galaxy S6 for about a month now and today I got a notification saying 'software update available' (the 5.1.1 update) I managed to download the update and install without any major problems, however, since installing the update I've not been able to get back onto my phone, it seems to be stuck in continual reboot mode, by which I mean going through the SAMSUNG and powered by android screen for the past 5 hours

    Any body know how to get out of this cycle?

    Turn the phone off.
    Now press and hold the Volume up button, the Home button, and the Power button together until you see the Android on screen.
    Now use Volume down to highlight the wipe data/factory reset option and press the Power button to select it.

    A word of caution make sure automatic restore is set. Settings-backup and reset-automatic restore has a check mark in the box. If you don't do this you'll have to re-install all of your apps..
