Samsung Galaxy S22 Started Running Slow After An Update

In this troubleshooting guide, we will show you some simple procedures you can use if your Samsung Galaxy S22 starts running slow without apparent reason.

More often, software-related issues in Samsung devices are common and there are several factors to consider that this problem is happening every now and then.

So, if you’re of the Galaxy S22 users encountered this issue, then here are the things that you should do:

Solution 1: Close background apps

One of the factors to consider that your Galaxy S22 is running slow is due to several apps running in the background simultaneously.

So, this time we have to close all apps running in the background and see if the issue is fixed.

Here’s how you do it:

Step 1: Tap the Recent apps key to view the apps.
Step 2: Tap Close All to quit them all in one tap.

After this procedure, use your device and see if your phone runs smoothly now that you’ve already closed all applications running in the background.

Solution 2: Force restart your phone

If the first solution fails to resolve the issue the next thing that you should do is to perform a force restart on your phone.

This method is very effective especially in dealing with software-related issues.

In other words, if this is just a glitch in the system then this method will surely fix it.

Here’s how:

Step 1: Press and hold the Volume Down button and the Power key for 10 seconds.

This will trigger your phone to power off and turn back on.

Step 2: Once the Samsung logo appears, release both keys and allow the device to continue the boot process.

Most of the time, if the problem isn’t really that serious, a simple procedure like this will be enough to fix the problem.

However, if your device is still sluggish after this method, then proceed to the next fix.

Solution 3: Run your phone in safe mode

Since the first two methods are unable to fix the problem, what we have to do now is to run your device in safe mode.

We have to eliminate the possibility that one of your third-party apps triggered the problem.

By simply running the device in Safe mode all third-party in the system will be disabled temporarily.

So if the issue is fixed while running the device in safe mode, then surely there’s a third-party app causing the issue.

Try to find that app and uninstall it to resolve the problem of your device. Here’s how to run your device in Safe mode:

Step 2: Tap the Power icon to pull up the power menu.
Step 3: Tap and hold on the Power off option until it turns into Safe mode.
Step 4: Tap Safe mode to restart your device.

With all third-party apps disabled, there is no reason for your phone to run slowly or sluggishly. If that’s the case, what you need to do next is become observant enough of the apps you use.

There must be some specific apps that cause the problem and you have the option to reset them or uninstall them.

However, if your phone is still running slowly even in safe mode, then move on to the next solution.

Solution 4: Reset all settings of your phone

Another factor that could trigger sluggishness on the device is due to inappropriate settings. Doing this method will bring your device back to its default settings and configuration.

Don’t you worry, this method won’t delete your important files and data.

After the settings reset, continue observing your phone to know if the problem continues to occur.

Most of the time, resetting all the settings is enough to fix performance related problems.

However, if the problem continues, then move on to the next procedure.
