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.”

Grainy screen seen on Galaxy S24 haunts iPad Pro 2024

Published

Apple iPad Pro 2024

Recent Samsung flagships are accused of being affected by a grainy display issue. Meanwhile, some users of Apple’s new M4 iPad Pro reported having a similar experience. Some iPad Pro users (via MacRumors) take their complaints regarding grainy screens to social media platforms.

iPad Pro models affected by grainy screen problems reveal the problem in dark environments. When the OLED display is set at a low to medium brightness, content is displayed in gray or muted colors. Some users denote it as a sandy screen, which looks blurry by pixels.

Samsung hasn’t yet fixed the grainy screen problem on Galaxy S24 smartphones. However, IceUniverse believes that Apple will soon acknowledge the iPad screen defect and fix it through firmware. Later, Samsung will follow the suite and benefit Galaxy S24 users.

Whether it’s an OLED hardware fault or generated by firmware remains a question for now. Meanwhile, OEMs should try fixing it as soon as possible as it became a big hurdle to consumers. Continuous controversy may also lead to harming sales and trust concerns.

Pay attention, Samsung Display has also faced some yield concerns in the initial production of the 11-inch panel. Due to this, Apple transferred some of its orders from Samsung D to LG Display, which also supplies OLED for 13-inch models.

Samsung to resolve icons visibility bug in Theme Park app’s next update

Published

Samsung Theme Park icons issue

Following the recent update to the Samsung Theme Park Good Lock module, several Galaxy users have encountered an issue where icons for key applications like the clock, calendar, and settings disappear. This problem has left users disappointed, especially since they were hoping for improvements with the new update.

Previously, there was a different problem where icons did not display correctly. The hope was that this would improve with the new update. Unfortunately, the situation has worsened as it is causing inconvenience for those using the app.

A community moderator has responded to user issues that the company is aware of the app icons visibility issue, and is planning to fix it in future updates of the Samsung Theme Park app.

However, the moderator also stated that to solve the problem of the app icon background color, which is different from the previous version, the app’s software would need to be updated. This means that users will have to wait longer for this particular fix.

The community moderator has not shared any timeline for this update, Samsung will release the new Theme Park update soon.

The issue where the live icon is not visible when applying a theme created by a theme park will be corrected by the team in charge and will be improved through updates to the theme park app.

However, please note that the phenomenon in which the app icon background color in the previous apk method is different from the current app icon color requires a S/W app update, so it is expected that it will take time to improve,” said the community moderator.

Samsung Galaxy S22 May 2024 update Korea

Samsung encountered issues with the One UI 6.1 software update for its Galaxy S22 series and has temporarily suspended it. Recently, the company started releasing the One UI 6.1 update in Korea. However, the Korean tech giant has reportedly stopped the update due to some issues and reverted to the previous version One UI 6.0.

According to the information via @Tarunvats, the One UI 6.1 update has been suspended for the Samsung Galaxy S22 series due to the lock screen issue. In addition, the software version has also changed back from S90xNKSU3EXDC to S90xNKSU3DXD3. In addition, some reports reveal that the update is paused due to a rebooting issue.

One UI 6.1 update was released to bring a host of improvements, including a more intuitive interface and advanced AI capabilities. However, the lock screen and rebooting issues have delayed these benefits for users worldwide.

Currently, it’s unclear when the One UI 6.1 update will be available again, especially for users in other countries. Samsung is likely working on resolving the issue to ensure that the update is secure and functions properly before releasing it again.
