We will try to rule-out each and every possibility until we can determine the problem and resolve it. So, if you own a Galaxy A33 5G and having similar issue, then continue reading for this post might help you.
First solution: Close all Apps running in the background
One of the reasons issues like this occur is due to apps left running in the background. Perhaps the CPU and RAM cannot cater all of it and causes the device to lag. So, what we have to do now is to close all of it at once. Here's how you do it:
1. Tap on the Recent apps key. This will show you the apps that are still running.
2. Tap Close all to force them to stop.
After closing all running apps in the background, use your phone again and observe if the issue continues. If so, proceed to the next method.
Second solution: Forced restart your Galaxy A33 5G
If closing all apps is unable to fix the issue, there is a chance that the issue is caused by a glitch in the system. Doing a forced restart will refresh the memory of your phone and reload all its services. So, if this is just a glitch in the system, then this procedure will surely fix it.
This is how you do a forced restart on your phone:
1.Press and hold the Volume Down button and the Power key for 10 seconds. This will trigger your phone to shut down and power back up.
2.Once the logo shows, release both keys and allow the phone to finish the boot process.
After the procedure, use your phone and see if it still lags. If so, proceed to the next method.
Third solution: Reboot your Phone in Safe Mode
If you downloaded a bunch of third-party apps on your device, that could be the reason your phone is lagging. It's possible that one or a couple of the apps is incompatible on the system and triggers your device to function poorly.
To eliminate this suspicion, all you need to do is boot your Galaxy A33 5G in Safe Mode. Booting in this mode will prevent all third-party apps from running and only the pre-installed ones will run in the system. So, while in Safe mode and your phone won't lag, then obviously there's an app you need to uninstall to resolve the issue.
This is how you boot in Safe mode:
1: Press and hold the Power key until options show.
2: Tap and hold the Power off option until it changes into Safe Mode.
3: Tap the Safe mode icon to restart your device.
4: Once the reboot is successful, you should see ‘Safe mode’ at the lower-left corner of the screen.
However, if your phone still lags while in this mode, then follow the next procedure.
Fourth solution: Reset all Settings
It's possible that due to a misconfiguration of the phone's settings, the device will function poorly. So, what you have to do now is to reset all the settings of your Galaxy A33 5G. Doing this will bring back all the settings configuration to its factory default.
1: Swipe down from the top of the screen to pull the notification panel down.
2: Tap the Settings icon on the upper-right corner.
3: Scroll to and tap General management.
4: Touch Reset.
5: Tap Reset all settings.
6: Tap the Reset settings button.
7: If prompted, enter your PIN, Password or Pattern.
8: Finally, tap Reset.
Once the procedure is finished, your phone will reboot and you will have to reconnect to a network to get a connection. But try to see if the problem is fixed because if not, move on to the next solution.
Fifth solution: Factory reset your Galaxy A33 5G
If all else fails, then your last resort is to perform a factory reset. This method will bring your phone back to its factory default. In other words, all files and data saved on your device will be deleted during the reset. Before you do so, make sure to backup your important files and data.
Here's how you reset your phone:
1. Turn off the device.
2. Press and hold the Volume Up and Power keys.
3. When the Galaxy A33 logo shows, release all three keys.
4. Your Galaxy A33 will continue to boot up into the Recovery Mode. Once you see a black screen with blue and yellow texts, proceed to the next step.
5. Press the Volume down key several times to highlight ‘wipe data / factory reset’.
6. Press Power button to select.
7. Press the Volume down key until ‘Yes’ is highlighted.
8. Press Power button to select and start the master reset.
9. When the master reset is complete, ‘Reboot system now’ is highlighted.
10. Press the Power key to restart the device.
After the reset, set up your phone as a new device. If this is a firmware-related problem, then doing a reset will resolve it.
