Samsung phone lagging after One UI 4.0 update?

Due to enhancements of existing features or the addition of new features, your Samsung device may feel slightly sluggish after a firmware update. At the same time, unsuccessful firmware update because of losing internet connection in the process of updating is also a reason behind device lagging.

On the other hand, the third-party application also reduces the performance of your smartphone. If your phone has a lot of applications such as messenger applications, games, and anti-virus apps, it can also slow down your device due to the background process.

Here’s how to enable Fast charging mode on Galaxy S21

Published

on

Surprisingly, Samsung’s fast charging is automatically disabled on Galaxy S21 series. Although Superfast charging is enabled by default. But you can easily change that by going to Settings, and we’ll explain to you how to do it in this article.

The most likely reason for faster charging is disabled, to save your long battery life. And if you are using a non-Samsung 25W charger, you will want this turned on.

If you are using a different charger, such as an 18W charger, then consider your Galaxy S21 charging very slowly. This is probably why. We came across this issue while working on our review of the Galaxy S21 Ultra and went hunting to find out why. That’s why. So keep that in mind.

Samsung Galaxy S21 Fast Charging Tips

Here’s how you can enable fast charging on the Galaxy S21 series:

  • First, open Settings.
  • Then tap on “Battery and device care”.
  • From there, tap on “Battery”.
  • At the bottom of that screen, you will view an option for “More battery settings” tap on that.

Under the charging header on that screen, you will see three options. By default, the first one is displayed, which is fast charging. While Super fast charging and fast wireless charging are turned on default. Just tap on the toggle next to “Fast Charging” to turn on instant charging.

This will be required if you are not using a Samsung 25W charger. If you use a slow charger such as a 20W or 18W charger, you will want this turned on, or you will charge a very small fee.

It is strange that this is closed by default. But it may also help save your battery life over time. Since fast charging can damage the battery very quickly.

Although with the release of Galaxy S21, the Samsung Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra are three powerful smartphones. They boast processors, multidisciplinary cameras, and beautiful screens.

That means, even the most prominent new releases come with a collection of bugs, issues, and problems. When you look at your Galaxy S20, you wish it to work properly, and then continue reading as we explain the simple fixes to some of the most common problems of the Galaxy S20 that you may encounter with the list.

1. Galaxy S20 Wi-Fi doesn’t work properly – Issue

Some users have complained that their S20 Ultra has problems connecting to Wi-Fi, often failing to download web pages and content even though the phone indicates it is connected to a Wi-Fi network. Updates to Android 11 seem to be causing this problem, and some users have noticed it with other phones in the S20 series.

Solution

One fix proposed in the Samsung Community forum is to go to Settings > Location > Google Location Accuracy Off. Taking this route can solve most occurrences of this issue, although your best bet is to check for a new software update and download/install it.

  1. Open the Settings app on your device
  2. Scroll down to Advanced Features
  3. Select Motions and Gestures
  4. Next, enable or disable the Lift to Wake function

  4. Enter your current security code
  5. Next, delete any old fingerprints

Check to see which of your apps have the most important effect. If you lose a lot of battery due to Always On Display, follow the steps below to disable it:
