If you have been a Samsung mobile user for the past 3 months or more, you might be experiencing some issues. These problems have been popping up on all Samsung devices. So, in this blog, you will learn about fixing some of the 5 most common issues of Samsung mobiles. All the solutions are pretty straightforward. So let’s review them one by one. 

  1. Excessive Battery Draining in Samsung Mobile

Do you think you’re losing battery fast? There could be many other explanations behind this fault, and it won’t be right to blame the battery for its bad health. 

Solution: You can get a good battery life by following these steps:

  • Turn off all connectivity options, including Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, and NFC
  • Use the phone optimizer to clean the mobile applications
  • Turn on your phone’s “Power Saving Mode”
  • Lower your screen’s brightness
  • Don’t turn on the “Always On Display” option
  • Avoid using live wallpapers 
  1. Unresponsive and Frozen Screen in Samsung Mobile

This problem occurs when your phone gets stuck during usage, and the screen becomes unresponsive despite touching and tapping the panel. It could be a problem related to your phone’s cache. 

Solution: If the screen gets stuck temporarily, you can eliminate this by simply locking and unlocking your device using the power button. If the power button also becomes unresponsive, restart your mobile phone by pressing the power button for about 10 seconds. If the second solution works for you and the problem arises quite a lot, it is wise to factory reset your phone. 

  1. Overheating Problem in Samsung Mobile

A weak or old battery is the most common reason for overheating your Samsung mobile. Nevertheless, the surrounding environment and temperature are two important factors responsible for the heating level. Another reason could be charging and using your phone at the same time. 

Solution: It is suggested to buy a new battery and replace it with the old one to solve this problem. If that’s not what you’re looking for right now! Try these steps:

  • Use your phone at normal temperature
  • Save your phone from direct sunlight
  • Don’t use your phone while you’re charging the battery
  • Always turn off your phone’s mobile data when not in use
  1. Issues Connecting to Wi-Fi in Samsung Phone

Don’t panic if your phone isn’t connecting to Wi-Fi. It is more of a signal problem and not directly related to your mobile phone.

Solution: Restart your mobile and then connect it to your Wi-Fi. If the problem still exists, turn on your phone’s Airplane Mode for 15 seconds. Doing so will resolve the connectivity issue.
