Samsung Galaxy S10 Common Problems: How to Fix Them

Use this guide and learn how to fix common problems on Samsung Galaxy S10 series of phones. The Galaxy S10 lineup may be Samsung’s most important one in years, but at £899 does the huge screen, triple camera and fancy ultrasonic fingerprint scanner make it worthy upgrade? One thing is obvious: the Galaxy S10 isn’t necessarily the future of smartphones. That, at this point, looks like to be the Galaxy Fold and Huawei Mate X, devices with folding screens that cost £2,000-plus. Instead Galaxy S10 is one of the finest examples of today’s smartphones. Iterative but excellent. And you won’t need a mortgage to buy it.

Everything starts with the display, and oh what a display it is. At 6.4 inch, on the S10 Plus, it’s a monster, pushed all the way to the top and bottom, and curve at the sides with a hole in the screen in the top right corner through which the dual selfie-cameras poke. Though while brands push to sell a smartphone with zero problems it is highly likely few glitches still go through — similar is the case with the latest flagship from Samsung. There are minor common problems on the Galaxy S10 / S10+ / S10e. Fortunately enough, these issues are fixable. We have tried to gather all the possible problems from Galaxy S10, S10 Plus and S10e along with their solutions.

Step 1 – Don’t let your phone charge for too long. Once it is fully charged, take off the plug.

Step 2 – Make sure not to use your phone while charging. Using your Galaxy S10 phone for long while charging may lead to the heating issue.

Step 3 – Next, playing games for too long could be the main reason for the heating issue. You may want to take a pause.

Galaxy S10 Poor Battery Life

If you are one of the few customers with a Galaxy S10 phone that is facing depleted battery endurance, then use the following steps to ensure that it’s not any user-caused issue.

Solution: 

Step 1 – First of all, make sure to remove the third-party app that claims to be phone cleaner or battery saver. If you have installed any.

Step 2 – Next, go to settings and turn on the power saving option. The battery saver provided on Galaxy S10 by the manufacturer will actually work.

Step 3 – Then, turn off location services when not in need.

Step 4 – Also, use mobile data network on the Android phone only when needed. This sucks up your battery very quickly.

Step 5 – Finally, uninstall apps such as Facebook which requires a lot of background services to run. Hence, ending up your Galaxy S10 battery life too early.

Laggy or Sluggish User interface

From time to time, users might have a phone that isn’t responding quickly. This might be due to couple of reasons for which see the solutions below.

Solution:

Step 1 – First of all, if you have installed any third-party launcher, consider removing that. Because most of the launcher is not optimized for a particular spec sheet. Next, do a hard reboot. Turn off your Galaxy S10 and restart it again.

Step 2 – Also if the problem still arises, you need to perform a factory reset. Go to setting > Backup & Reset > Factory Reset your phone. Make sure to take the necessary backup.

Step 3 – Furthermore, if the UI lag never goes you can head to the service center & ask them to reinstall the OS. If still for some reason the lag persists on the Galaxy S10 then consider it as a software failure. You may have to wait for the next OTA update from the company.

By now, you should have solved the issue on your Samsung Galaxy S10 / S10 Plus / S10e. Did we miss a problem? Let us know in the comments!
