We have to rule-out each and every possibility until we can determine the real problem and fix it. So, if you are one of the owners of Samsung Galaxy A33 5G and having a similar problem, then continue reading for this post might help you.

  1. First solution: Do the Forced restart.


    More often, performance-related issues occur on devices due to a number of apps and services simultaneously running in the background causing your phone to become sluggish or slow. So, to fix this, the first thing that you should do is to perform a forced restart. 

    Doing this will refresh the memory of your phone and reload all the services functioning poorly. Don't worry, this method won't harm your phone or delete your important files and data. Here's how you forced restart your Galaxy A33 5G:

    1.Press and hold the Volume Down button and don’t release it yet. 
    2.While holding down the volume button, press and hold the Power key as well. 
    3.Keep both keys held down together for 15 seconds or until the Galaxy A33 logo shows on the screen.

    After the forced restart, use your phone and see if the issue is fixed. If not, proceed to the next method.

  2. Second solution: Reboot your phone in Safe Mode.


    Sometimes, due to incompatible third-party apps installed, it is possible that the system will function poorly and lead the device to become sluggish. To eliminate this suspicion, you need to boot your phone in Safe Mode.

    Doing this will prevent those third-party apps installed from running and only the built-in apps will run in the system. So, while in this mode and your phone is not running slow or sluggish, then obviously one of the third-party apps is causing it and needs to be uninstalled to fix the problem.

    Here's how you boot your phone 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, after booting in this mode and uninstalling those suspected apps and your device is still running slow, proceed to the next step.

  3. Third solution: Reset All Settings of your phone.


    If you've done some configuration on device settings before the issue started, that may be the reason your phone is running slow or sluggish. We will try to do this method on your device to bring back all its settings to the default configuration and see if the performance of your phone improves. Here's how you do it:

    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 settings. 
    6. Tap the Reset settings button. 
    7. If prompted, enter your PIN, Password or Pattern. 
    8. Finally, tap Reset.

    After you do the reset, use your phone and observe if the issue is fixed. If its still slow or sluggish, then move to the next procedure.

  4. Fourth solution: Wipe the cache partition.


    In the cache partition, these are temporary files and data saved in the system to make the device run smoothly every time you have to use it.

    So, if these files are corrupted or outdated there is a chance that your device will function poorly and lead to becoming slow or sluggish. What we're gonna do now is delete those files and data so that the system can create brand new ones and could run smoothly in the system. 

    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 cache partition.
    6. Press Power key to select.
    7. Press the Volume down key to highlight yes, them and press the Power key to select.
    8. When the wipe cache partition is complete, Reboot system now is highlighted.
    9. Press the Power key to restart the device.

    After wiping the cache partition, use your phone like you normally do and see if it's still slow or sluggish. If so, follow the next method.

  5. Fifth solution: Hard Reset your Galaxy A33.


    Since all four procedures failed to resolve the issue, the last resort that you can do is to reset your phone. This method is very effective especially in fixing firmware-related issues on your device. But before you perform a reset, we suggest that you backup your files and data saved on your phone because all of it will be deleted during the process.

    This is how you do the reset on your Samsung Galaxy A33 5G:

    1. Turn off the device.
    2. Press and hold the Volume Up key and the Bixby key, then press and hold the Power key.
    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.
