Solution 1: Close background apps and do the Forced restart

More often, freezing and rebooting issues occur due to several apps left running in the background and using the RAM and CPU that resulted in the device to freeze and reboots without a reason.

So, doing this method will close all apps running and refresh the memory of the device. Here’s how it’s done:

Step 1: Tap the Recent Apps key to view the apps that are still running.

Step 2: Tap Close All to quit them all in one go.

Step 3: After doing that, press and hold the Volume Down button and the Power key for 8 seconds.

This will force your phone to shut down and power back up.

Step 4: When the Samsung logo appears on the screen, release both keys and wait until the reboot is finished.

After you do the force restart, use your phone and observe if the issue is fixed. If not, proceed to the next solution.

Solution 2: Run your phone in safe mode and observe

If you’ve installed rogue apps on your phone that would be a reason that the device freezes and reboots for no reason.

So, to rule this possibility out we recommend you to run your phone in safe mode. This will temporarily disable all third-party apps you’ve installed and the built-in apps will be left running in the system.

Here’s how:

Step 1: Press and hold the volume down button and the power key until power options show on the screen.

Step 2: Tap and hold on the Power off option until it changes to Safe Mode.

Step 3: Tap Safe Mode to restart your phone.

While in safe mode and your phone won’t freeze or reboots, then obviously a third-party app is causing the issue.

Try to find that app and uninstall it to resolve the problem.

However, while your phone is in safe mode and the issue is still happening, follow the next procedure.

Solution 3: Reset all settings of your Galaxy S22

Issues like this may sometimes be caused by an inappropriate settings configuration. You might have done something in the past that causes the device to function abnormally.
