    I bought S6 Edge when it came out, everything was going fine until may be 2months ago it stopped notifying me of any new emails, skype calls, whatsapp msgs/call, viber etc almost all social apps when screen is locked.

    When I unlock the screen, then many notifications pops up ranging from few mins to few hours. My phone decides whether to notify me as it gets any new msg/email or notify me after an hour or two. It's frustrating, I have to keep unlocking the phone to see if any new msgs/texts pops up. It only notifies me of regular cellular calls and messages on time.
    I have tried uninstalling/updating/disabling all these apps but in vain.

    E.g. if my friends calls me on skype, I don't get any notification, when i open Skype app by any chance then i know there are e.g. 5 missed calls. Same is with whatsapp/viber/slack/snapchat etc.

    I have tried clearing cache and restarting phone and everything except resetting it (which I don't want to).

    Is there a way I can fix this without factory resetting it? Thanks.

    Welcome to Android Central! Make sure you don't have any power saving options turned on--they might be turning off the phone's data connection or push notifications while asleep.

    Also, no other 3rd party battery-saving apps installed?

    When you said you cleared cache, do you mean the app cache, or the system cache partition? If you haven't cleared the cache partition, it's worth trying: https://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-21095
