Samsung Galaxy S6 heart rate sensor is lighted red during stand by

The Samsung Galaxy S6 has installed on the rear of the housing a heart rate monitor, with which you can easily measure your pulse. A handy feature, which is supported by various apps. Now it can happen, however, that this sensor still lights red without using the pulse function. Of course this is not the intention and that is why you should find out and correct the reason.

We to give you a tip, that usually fixes the reddish glow of the heart rate monitor at your Samsung Galaxy S6. The reddish glow of the heart rate monitor comes from a malfunction of the app "Google Fit". Check if you have this app installed on your Samsung Galaxy S6. If so, uninstall or update it and then check if the red lights are still occurring.

The order should be as follows:

1. Uninstall or update Google Fit
2. Restart the Samsung Galaxy S6
3. Check whether the reddish glow of the heart rate monitor still exists

Typically, this is the main cause of the misbehavior of the heart rate monitor in standby. We hope that this is also the solution for your Samsung Galaxy S6.

Why is that when my camera is open on the selfie mode, I noticed a red light coming from my phone ? The red light only shows up when something is covering the sensor. I happened to notice because i was in selfie mode and i set my phone down and saw the light. I closed the camera app and opened it again, with the selfie mode on I put my hand in front of the sensor, a red light appeared, and then boom it took a picture on its own ?
Could you please explain why it took a picture ? and why does the red light only appear on selfie mode? thank you

Mary, this is a feature that is intended to be there. It should inform you of this the first time you open the camera app, or when opening the camera app the first time after updating to Android Nougat. It is there to help you snap a selfie without touching the screen itself. The pulse sensor should always light up when it's used, as when using it to capture a photo.

I hope I cleared the subject up for you! :)
