Galaxy Wearable connectivity One UI 5.0 Beta

Updates are added at the bottom…

Samsung’s Galaxy Wearable is an application that connects your Galaxy Watch and Galaxy Buds to your smartphone so that you can manage and monitor your wearable device through your phone. However, many Galaxy wearable app users are facing connectivity problems after installing One UI 5.0 Beta builds.

Android 13 is now official for Pixel and some other brands’ smartphones. But Samsung is still running the Android 13-based One UI 5.0 Beta program for eligible Galaxy device owners. This upgrade brings a handful of new features and improvements over the previous version but such issues are highly affecting users’ experience.

In the recent few days, various Samsung Galaxy Wearable app customers have reached the Samsung Members community to report that the application is not working properly. According to the reports, users are not able to connect their wearable devices to their phones as the connections and disconnections are being repeated over and over again.

Once disconnected and try to connect it again, it works normally for some seconds. But later an error occurs that says the wearable cannot be connected. Well, this issue is arising in both Galaxy Watch and Galaxy Buds for their respective users.

It is worth mentioning that the Galaxy Wearable connectivity issue is appearing after switching to the One UI 5.0 Beta version on either Galaxy S22, Galaxy S21, Galaxy S20, or Galaxy A52 devices. And, the reason behind this is not clear yet.

On the other hand, the Samsung community’s beta operation manager has responded to users’ concerns. But he did not mention the reason due to which this problem is happening nor he has told how it can be fixed or when it will be fixed.

Well, this is not the first problem that One UI 5.0 beta testers are reporting, earlier users also told about many other problems such as home crashing, bad animation, object eraser not working, screen blackening, and more.

Moving on, Samsung’s Android 13-based One UI 5.0 builds are currently in the beta phase, which means there is no guarantee for its stability so you can not blame the manufacturers for such issues. The company is continuously working on improving the One UI software and as it has resolved many old One UI issues, it will continue to do so.

It is possible that Samsung will bring a fix for this issue in the next beta or stable One UI 5.0 update. The problem seems annoying for the users but customers might have to compromise with the Galaxy Wearable app features and functions until the next One UI 5.0 builds will release.

Furthermore, currently, there’s no plan for Samsung’s next step. Meanwhile, the stable One UI 5.0 will unveil at Samsung Developer Conference which will happen on October 12. Possibly, the company could also start the stable version rollout on the same day, at least for Galaxy S22 series phones.

And, it is expected that the Korean company will solve all the major and minor issues that users are currently facing on the beta builds through the stable release. In addition, it will further introduce new features and enhancements to the devices.

Update 1: Sep. 30

Apart from Galaxy Watch series device users, the Gear S3 also reportedly has the same connectivity issues. The beta operation manager recommended users send an error log, which suggests that the company will fix this issue with the next Beta build.

Samsung Batteries Swelling

Original story published on Sep 28, update mentioned at the bottom…

Aging Samsung phones reportedly have swelling problems with batteries which cause a popped-up back panel, similar to a bump rear side. In electronics devices, battery swelling is a serious concern as it leads to critical damage, even death sometimes.

We are well aware of the Galaxy Note 7 explosion, which can’t be vanished from the history of Samsung. Meanwhile, the older Samsung phones, such as the Galaxy S20 series and older ones, seems to be affected by a serious issue – swelling of batteries over time, and the ratio of damage is higher than other vendors.

Spotted and explained by popular YouTuber Mrwhosetheboss, the video showcases various aspects of the battery swelling problem and possible reasons. Arun discovered that the batteries of Galaxy phones are getting swelled to a level where the rear panel popped up by leaving the bond as soon as they get old.

Well, the company has not yet given a satisfactory reply on the matter when the YouTuber reached the support team, while we recommend you to check the battery status if you also owned a Samsung phone, which is now older than 1 to 2 years.

After spotting the issue on his multiple Samsung phones including the Galaxy S10 and Z Fold 2, Arun managed to find clues that other people are also victims of battery swelling. And from his collection, all Galaxy phones launched before the Galaxy S20 series have this swollen battery issue.

This issue becomes disastrous when smartphones from other Android makers are not affected by battery swelling, raising questions on Samsung’s tests another time. Mrwhosetheboss talked to MKBHD, who revealed that his Samsung phones’ batteries got swelled once he stopped using them and packed them in the box.

Moving ahead, the video mentions a discussion with JerryRigEverything who is famous for his tough durability tests of smartphones. Zack explained how a battery works and the changes that happen while charging or using the power in a normal state – it’s all about anode, cathode and separator.

The YouTuber didn’t get any explanation from Samsung after 52 days of reporting the issue of battery swelling on his three Galaxy devices. However, the documents mentioned in the video suggest Samsung may be investigating the problems in affected units.

To our readers, we recommend checking if there’s any sign of battery swelling on their old and new Samsung phones and tablets. In case you face the same problem, must visit a nearby Samsung service center as a priority even if your phone is out of warranty.

Update 1: Sep 30

Mr Arun received a status update on the battery swelling issue of three Samsung smartphones. According to him, the company informed him that:

“We are aware of this matter and are looking into further technical assessments. We encourage customers with questions regarding their Samsung device to contact their local Customer Service representative.”

Samsung One UI 5 beta 2

Some Samsung Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22 Plus, and Galaxy S22 Ultra smartphone users are reported having issues in receiving text messages. Mainly, the issue is reported by the Galaxy S22 series consumers having a carrier branded unit on Verizon, T-Mobile and AT&T.

The text messages issue emerged on Samsung Galaxy S22 models post-September 2022 security patch installation on various networks. Meanwhile, several users reported that a simple reboot fixes the text messages issue, while the pending ones come as a crowd after restarting the phone, spotted by PiunikaWeb.

More specifically, the issue doesn’t occur regularly, while the users stop receiving text messages randomly. Once restarted, all the pending messages arrive in bulk, hinting that there’s any functional error with the September 2022 security patch.

Apart from the Galaxy S22 series, some Galaxy S21 owners were also victims of such issues with text messages a few months back. Some consumers managed to clear the app cache and data to get rid of the problem but it didn’t solve until the device got restarted.

Talking about temporary fixes for the issue, consumers having Galaxy S22 locked on AT&T or T-Mobile can toggle SIM cards on/off through the SIM card manager function. Earlier, some carrier-locked Galaxy devices got two bloatware apps alongside the security patch.

Samsung debuted its September 2022 security patch earlier this month, and the Galaxy A52 also received the October patch with One UI 5.0 Beta. So far, the US network carriers have not acknowledged the issue with text messages, however, we are dreaming a fix OTA as soon as possible.
