[UPDATE 2/26/2013 9:45pm]: We have just been notified that Virgin Mobile USA, subsidiary of Sprint Nextel Corporation, is now offering Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G LTE. Many of procedures we recommended below will still solve problems owners of under Virgin Mobile might experience.
The Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G LTE was release in September 2012 and currently offered exclusively by US carrier Sprint. The device packed a dual-core Qualcomm processor clocked at 1.2GHz with 1GB of RAM. In other words, the phone is powerful enough to satisfy the needs of users as far as communication is concerned.
This post will tackle five of the most common problems owners have experienced with their device. Troubleshooting steps, fixes and workarounds will be included to provide support to current owners of the Galaxy Victory 4G LTE. However, we want to make it clear that all procedures we present here are based on good practices. So, don’t expect to read about how to root, hack or unlock your device in this short troubleshooting guide for the Samsung Galaxy Victory.
The first problem deals with data connectivity issue. If you’ve subscribed with Sprint’s unlimited mobile data and often connects to the internet with it, this problem may be a great concern for you as you will be completely disconnected with the world when it occurs, although you can try to connect to a Wi-Fi network any time. For this problem, we presented two Sprint-specific troubleshooting procedures and one basic procedure.
The second section deals with battery problems owners often complain about. We also provided different (a lot of ways) ways to conserve battery as well as overwrite current power configuration using the Sprint Zone app. Moreover, it is imperative to check if the battery has physical defects, swells or minor damages.
The third section deals with Victory 4G LTE’s tendency to run low on internal memory. Most of the time, these issues related to internal memory are caused by apps. Force-stopping running apps and uninstalling unused ones can often solve the problem.
The fourth section is about Bluetooth problems owners have experienced. We provided some troubleshooting procedures plus recommendations. We also pointed out Bluetooth technologies supported by the Galaxy Victory 4G LTE.
The fifth section is about how to deal with the Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G LTE that hangs, freezes and reboots. Over time, any Android device will deteriorate in performance because cached data build up every single day that the device is used. Often, clearing those data will resolve these issues.
