Published

Samsung’s most popular S series devices always brought top-notch features with high-end hardware specs, that’s why the customers are so much excited to buy them, these devices target a premium range of prices, which also creates high-quality performance expectations to the users, but due to some factors, the company is unable to fulfill that area.

Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S21 users facing several issues

March 25: A user posted on reddit “I’ve been having this problem with my galaxy s22 Plus since about August 2022 where it overheats considerably. I think it started right before oneui 4.5 was released. The back, sides and screen get really hot when I’m using it, even for simple browsing.”

March 25: In addition to the general battery draining and low power efficiency issues faced by some Galaxy S22 users after upgrading to the One UI 5.1 software, there have also been reports of specific battery concerns among the Galaxy S22 series. One such report came from a Verizon S22 Plus user who complained about “performance issues, battery drain, and overheating” after the last update. These issues can be a cause for concern as they may affect the device’s overall performance and cause inconvenience to the user. Therefore, it is essential to address these issues promptly and find solutions to ensure the smooth functioning of the device.

March 20: Another Galaxy S22 user, who switched from an iPhone a few months ago, has reported a concerning battery life issue. This user has the Exynos variant of the Galaxy S22 and is experiencing only 4 hours of screen on time, which is significantly lower than what is expected from a flagship smartphone

March 5: Another Galaxy S series model that has been facing battery concerns is the S21 Plus. One user has reported that despite using the phone with a 120Hz refresh rate, maximum 50% brightness, extra dim, and location and mobile data turned off, his phone’s 85% battery is offering just 4 hours of screen time. This is normal usage, but the phone is giving less battery life than expected. This issue is particularly concerning as the battery life is a crucial aspect of any smartphone, and users expect their devices to last throughout the day without requiring frequent recharging. It is, therefore, imperative to investigate the issue and find ways to improve battery life on the Galaxy S21 Plus.

February 27: Despite the much-awaited One UI 5.1 software upgrade, some Galaxy S22 smartphone users are still experiencing battery draining and low power efficiency issues. The problem seems to persist even when the screen is not in use, and the phone’s battery is getting consumed more quickly than before. Despite the many features and improvements that come with the One UI 5.1 upgrade, this issue has been a significant setback for users who rely heavily on their Galaxy S22 for day-to-day activities.

February 10: It is unfortunate to hear that two more Galaxy S22 users are reporting battery drain and overheating issues. A user mentioned that their Galaxy S22 heats up during general usage while using some social media apps, and the device is also delivering poor battery efficiency. This could indicate that there may be a problem with the device’s cooling system, or it could be related to some power-intensive apps running in the background. Another user reported that their S22’s battery drained by 13% without any usage in the meantime, suggesting that there may be a software issue that is causing the battery to drain faster than usual. The user also suspects that the Always On Display feature could be contributing to the battery drain, which is a possibility as this feature can consume a significant amount of power.

January 29: Several Samsung Galaxy owners are facing some issues regarding the battery performance of their devices, including Galaxy S21 and S22 series devices, some users, they are facing battery draining and heating issues since the beginning. Various users are reporting the issues on Reddit.

There are multiple users who claim that their devices are heating up during normal usage; for example, a user on Reddit says that he is only using the social media application, and the phone gets discharged very fast and heats up with normal usage.

January 24: However, this issue is commonly addressed on the Exynos variants devices, including Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S22 series. The Qualcomm-powered device users haven’t reported such an issue yet. Due to these issues, Samsung is also planning to ditch its self-made SoC from Galaxy S Lineup and is all set to introduce its Galaxy S23 device, which will be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset with a higher clock speed.

January 20: There are thousands of users complaining about the battery drain and overheating issues of both of the smartphones, but Samsung hasn’t given any response to this; the company hasn’t delivered any fix yet. But as a responsible company, we expect Samsung to take some hard steps and resolve the users’ problems after they have bought the product by believing in the Samsung brand.

Attention Galaxy S21 Users! Green Line Display Issue Reported After Update

Published

on


Green is the new red alert for Galaxy smartphone users! Many Galaxy smartphone users started claiming display issues after installing a software update.

This issue is not the latest, as it has been present in Samsung phones for a couple of years, and unfortunately, the brand has not done anything dedicatedly to solve it. This issue usually occurs after installing new software updates. 

Now again, a couple of Galaxy users have started complaining of display-related issues on their smartphones with OLED screens. After installing the software update, for instance, in the present condition after installing One UI 6.0 or the April 2024 security patch, a green or pink line started occurring on the phone’s display, as users reported. 

However, at the time, this issue appeared on some particular models, which are the Galaxy A73, Galaxy M21, Galaxy M52 5G, Galaxy S21 series, Galaxy S21 FE, Galaxy S22 series, and Galaxy Z Flip 3. 

Galaxy smartphones are not the only ones, but also Motorola, OnePlus, Vivo, and Xiaomi seem to have the same issue, as a post on X is unveiling. This issue is quite horrible since users install new software updates to refine and upgrade their older devices, but at last, they get a green line issue. This has mortified the users so much that people have started recording videos while installing new updates on their devices, as a tipster @sondesix revealed on X. 

Noticeably, this is not a minor issue, as an OLED display panel is not cheap at all, even though sometimes the OLED panel costs almost half the phone’s original price. The Galaxy users who are facing this issue have registered complaints, but Samsung does not seem to have issued a wider circular to after-sales service centers to replace display panels on affected phones for free.

The Samsung Galaxy S24 FE is again in the reports regarding its bigger display as compared to its predecessor. 

Previous reports already cleared the existence of the next Fan Edition variant named Galaxy S24 FE and hinted that it might be launched at the Galaxy Unpacked event, along with the next-generation foldable Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6 phones, which is supposed to be held in early July. 

Now that recent rumors are unveiling that the Samsung Galaxy S24 FE could feature a 6.7-inch display, which is a bit bigger than the previous fan edition models, let’s take a closer look at the display size of older Galaxy FE smartphones. 

  • Galaxy S23 FE, 6.4-inch 
  • Galaxy S21 FE, 6.4-inch 

Now, the Galaxy S24 FE is expected to have a 6.7-inch panel. Last time, the Korean giant offered this much bigger display to the Galaxy S10 Lite and Galaxy Note 10 Lite back in 2020. If this report comes true, then the Galaxy S24 FE will feature a bigger display than the original base variant of the Galaxy S24 series. 

The official key specification of the phone has not been unveiled yet, but it is expected that the Galaxy S24 FE could be powered by the Exynos 2400 or the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset. It could feature a 6.7-inch FDH+ AMOLED panel with a refresh rate of 120 Hz. A parallel increase in battery size will be necessary to power the larger screen. It would be interesting to see what new novelties the forthcoming Galaxy S24 FE will bring.
