7. Highlight the option to Reboot System Now.

8. Press the Power button to confirm selection.

9. Wait for your Galaxy S6 to reboot and recompile all of your applications. It may take a while for your device to re-cache them all so just wait patiently. Once the process is all done, you should have your S6 running as smooth as it should.

Hope this helps.
