Smart Ultra 6 Facebook/Facebook Messenger Issues

Hi all,

I'm just wondering if anyone else is having issues with Facebook and Facebook Messenger on the Smart Ultra 6?

Since this morning my phone has been very laggy and has frozen a few times requiring me to force restart it.

Found out the culprits are the two Facebook apps which have since been deleted, and now my phone is back to normal again.

A quick look on the reviews for both apps on the Play Store would reveal I'm not alone.

Unsurprisingly, since I've deleted both apps, my battery life seems to have slightly improved somewhat...

Search for the July 26th messenger apk and the July 12th or so Facebook app and you'll be back up and running.

I'm running the messenger beta from today and it appears to be fixed so that'll land soon

Use the chrome browser to access Facebook. If you keep a tab open on phone you will still get push notifications through the browser so I here. Don't use myself. Other may confirm this.

There is a basic low resource Facebook app apk. It's lite on resources and really ment for India and alike. I say avoid apk files though . That's what the security guys say..

If you are looking for a clean source, apkmirror.com is one that android police use and maintain, it has all the fb and messenger apks loaded on it.

​I agree, their apks are safe and sound. I had to get newer beta versions of both Facebook and messenger from there because I was having the exact problem as the OP.

Wow i thought i was the only one, facebook and messenger app doesnt work at all on smart ultra 6

if you side load the apks you might want to stop them from auto updating while you're at it

Facebook and it's spin offs are awful. The current app is v88, there's a reason I'm still using v7, back then it was simple and it still has messages built in without needing extra apps.

I had the same problem after updating the apps my SU6 started to go into a spasm. Found out facebook and messenger were the culprits so uninstalled both. After that SU6 ran fine. This was a couple of days ago. Funny thing is, thinking that Facebook would've fixed their apps, I thought I'd try to re-download those apps just there in playstore only to find a "Your device isn't compatible with this version" message lol. Somebody be messing up somewhere.

I can also confirm that the two apps have since been removed from the Play Store for the SU6. Presumably Facebook has had far too many complaints associated with this device.

I do wonder if it affects other Snapdragon 615 based devices too?

Facebook still hasn't fixed the issue and is still showing up as incompatible with the SU6 in the Play Store.

Both apps are back on play store!
