Common Problems with Samsung Galaxy S9 and How to Fix Them


Samsung phones are characterized by advanced hardware features, especially in recent phones such as the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus, but when you manufacture tens of millions of phones and shipped to all over the world, some customers have to encounter some problems with their phones.

Samsung Galaxy S9 has many features, but like any other smart phone, it has many problems that annoy users and stand without their full enjoyment of the phone and its features. Now that the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus have been on the market for several months, We offer you the most common problems and the best ways to fix them.

Galaxy S9 Battery Problems

Some users have reported that the life of the Samsung Galaxy S9 battery is short with large work tasks. Here’s how to get the most out of your phone’s battery:

  1. Use power save mode: It can run from quick settings or device maintenance settings. Power saving mode reduces screen resolution, low brightness, and stops applications running in the background. You should not use this mode all the time, but if the phone battery is about to come into effect this will be a good solution.
  2. Find battery-powered apps: by going to your device’s maintenance settings and clicking the “Use battery” option to see which application consumes the battery more often throughout the day. If you find something out of the ordinary watch it well and find out if it is the cause of the problem.
  3. Uninstall unused applications: These applications may be running in the background and drain the battery without your knowledge. If you have not used an application from time to time, you do not need to keep it for longer battery life.
  4. Always turn off the display: The display is always convenient to quickly check the time or view notifications but it consumes a lot of battery power. You can turn it off by going to Settings, then go to Screen Lock and Security, and always disable the display by pressing the switch Next to it.

Problems updating the operating system

One of the biggest disappointments of users of the Android operating system is the extent of Samsung’s slow pace in keeping its software up-to-date, either on its high-end devices, the most expensive in terms of price, or its popular devices. You can always check for OTA updates that can be activated by going to Settings and then updating the software , but just because you do not get the update this way does not mean that no updates are available. You can update manually using Samsung’s Smart Switch desktop software by installing this software and connecting your phone and letting it download updates automatically.

Keep space free of internal storage

Samsung has provided huge internal storage space on my Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus from 64 GB to 256 GB, which means you have the space to use your phone without worrying about storage. However, some people will reach this limit sooner or later. Here are some tips for cleaning up internal storage:

  1. Upload photos to a cloud storage service such as Google Photos: This service offers unlimited backups of high-quality compressed downloads, as well as 15GB of free, high-quality backups. After uploading photos you can save more storage space by removing them from your phone.
  2. Use the integrated device maintenance feature of the Galaxy S9 in Settings: Click Storage and see what can be done to save storage space – just be aware that it may remove some cached images and temporary files that will need to be downloaded again when using some applications.
  3. Delete unused applications: You may have started downloading when you first purchased your phone, but ended up using 20 of 200 apps you installed. Check your apps and find some apps you’re not using – tap and hold the app icon and click Uninstall to remove it from your phone.
