I've tried removing accounts, clearing various caches, data and accounts as advised, rebooting. Everything short of factory reset - which FB isn't worth the bother for me (and I am suspicious that won't fix it). I'm running 5.1.1 and nothing else has ever given me trouble...
Do other people have FB app running ok on their SU6?

I'm Not using that phone but am using a Samsung Galaxy s7 edge which runs on android Marshmallow with no issues.
I personally prefer to access Facebook via the URL page or link saved to my home screen as the app for me is a memory and battery hog.
I believe you can contact the developer to pass on your current issues.

I'd advise waiting for Facebook to update their .apk in the Google Play store and attempt downloading the latest version when it comes out.
Another option would be to download an older version of the .apk and trying that. It should update in the Google Play store once it's downloaded as it would be recognised as an older version that needs updating to the latest version.
Just as a warning, there is a chance that downloading an .apk could cause your phone to brick and stop working. If you attempt this, you'll be taking this chance at your own risk.
Let us know how you get on.

Stupid forums deleted my messasge.
I've tried three different APKs; the one that was out in November, the December version I tried on the weekend and yesterday the beta version. All three give the same error after attempting to insstall.

@jefmcg Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.
I've tested the Facebook app on a Smart Ultra 6 and it appears to be working.
Please let us know the error message that you're getting.

Thanks. So it looks like it's just my phone then.
It downloads and then spends several seconds installing, and finally this message shows up in notifications
(I've had the same with https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.

I've searched for information on error code 505 and it's come back as a Google Play Store error.
There are a couple of different methods I've found which should hopefully resolve this:
Method 1: Clear Cache and Data of Google Play Store:
Method 2: Reconfigure your Google Account:
Method 3: Factory Reset your Android Phone
Let us know how you get on.

I did most of that back in November (I have google, so worked that out before I first posted here), and as I said in my first post, I am not doing a factory reset. Too much palaver for software I will not keep on my phone permanently.
No facebook for me I guess.

So today I upgraded my phone to Marshmallow. Apps disappeared and when I tried to reinstall I got the dread -505 error all over the shop. Apps kept announcing that they had stopped etc. So it was finally time to do a factory reset.
Now Facebook installs. Haven't decided if I want to run it yet
