Haven’t installed USB Drivers for your Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus yet? Do it now with our full guide. Surely, Android has evolved a lot in the past few years and along with it, brands have also grown. Security reasons, manufacturing costs and overall economics led companies to have a singular driver package for all their phones. Galaxy S6 Edge Plus is no exception. You need to install the correct USB drivers from Samsung before you connect your Galaxy S6 Edge Plus. These drivers will therefore ensure correct working of the phone with hopefully no errors. Also, if you are into modding/customizing your phone, we recommend you install these first before you head to flashing. Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus’ USB drivers can be installed through our easy guide below.

The package we have linked below will have you supported for all Samsung phones including the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus. Loyal Android users would be missing the Mass Storage option given in previous builds but versions like Lollipop no longer support it. Fortunately, by stock, MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) has been enabled by default to make sure you can add and remove media files. MTP drivers are always included with the stock Android phone software. On the other hand, ADB and Fastboot drivers need to be manually downloaded from the Android SDK. We have an entire section full of Android USB Drivers, but we have that covered as well for you below on how to download and install the drivers.



Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus USB Drivers for Windows

Like we said, the USB drivers for Galaxy S6 Edge Plus are always bundled with Samsung KIES or MTP drivers are part of the Android 5.0.2 Lollipop / Android 5.0 Lollipop software that comes with the phone. For transferring media content, photos and other files from your phone, you need to have a micro USB cable (preferably the one you got with the phone) for the phone.

  • Connect your Galaxy S6 Edge Plus with the computer using that USB cable.
