Hello,

I purchased a Samsung S6 Edge in China, but live in the US. The OS for Chinese versions is different, as there are no Google apps and such, and many apps that require Google play services, such as Snapchat, are blocked. Google service apps downloaded through apks also do not work with the phone. Is there a way to change the os so I can have the US Version of Android installed on my phone? If so, how? Thanks in advance

I think it's better for you to try to install GMS Core in order to use Google apps without rooting.
As I know, there is a GMS Core shared on One Drive. It does work for some Huawei mobile phones. Hope it would also work for your S6 Edge.

Otherwise, you will have to unlock and root your phone if you want to change the default rom. It is known that there is a risk of brick. :(

Unzip the file, GMS Core Installer.zip, to get the .apk file.

Thanks friend for sharing the link I will check it hope it helps. :-)

You are welcome.

Do you have the same issue as AndroidUser123 faces? Is your device a Samsung S6 Edge, too?

Anyway, please feed back if it works for your device.
