Just got my update, though first observation, notifications don't leave the screen immediately, spend some seconds before disappearing from the screen. Please did you guys notice same? 🤣 🤣
Hi. The second front caméra is useless. How to activte it or is it a hardware default? Thanks
Azhar , 18 Feb 2020The main problem is the phone that 6.4 inches There is no problem in this screen size, it is compact and in good size. Good for watching videos and surfing the apps, if you want less size go for S10 (6.1) or S10e (5.8) that should come within your size.
Bat21, 18 Feb 2020I understand your point and its one way of dealing with no power when your out in the boonies.... moreUnderstand and agree about the cord hanging and other inconveniences. However I would be staggered if your battery degraded so much in 5 years let alone 12 months. I have had several Samsung phones - s2, s4, s6, s8, and now s10 for about 4 months. I have always kept my phones for 2 years and none of them ever showed obvious signs of battery degradation. Of course what I can no longer do is take out the battery and re-install it in order to re-start my phone as I sometimes had to do on my s4 but nor have I needed to do since then either.
scorpio, 17 Feb 2020It would be easier and cheaper to carry a small power bank that you easily hook up to your phone.I understand your point and its one way of dealing with no power when your out in the boonies. But after a while your going to have your power bank attached permanently to the phone once the unchangeable battery ages over a year later and dies down to 30% capacity from heavy use. Unless you fork over money and time to send it back to Samsung /service center to change out the battery,for a new one. Which will cost about 100 + cdn dollars. So you have a phone with a battery charging pack and wire hanging out of it. Its not a great way to deal with a phone when your active. The charging cord hangs up on stuff, the charging cable becomes unplugged from the phone in your pocket.
I prefer the two second swap out of the battery's. It also helps if your phone hangs up. You can take out the battery. Then put it back in to reboot the phone.
On my note 4 buy I can a new battery at 16$ on Amazon that is 7500 mAh ..double the 3200 mAh original battery capacity. Cheaper then buying a battery charging bank.

Seen video of it on youtube. Maybe months down the line I might buy it. But only owning s10 plus over 5 months I will stay with it for now. But its tempting after seeing video of all three. It will be my next phone:-D

Press and hold the Volume Up key and the Bixby key, then press and hold the Power key all same time.
When the green Android logo displays, release all keys (‘Installing system update’ will show for about 30 – 60 seconds before showing the Android system recovery menu options).
Press the Volume down key several times to highlight ‘wipe cache partition’.
Press Power button to select.
Press the Volume down key until ‘yes’ is highlighted and press the Power button.
When the wipe cache partition is complete, “Reboot system now” is highlighted.
Press the Power key to restart the device. That should solve your problem. And like I said in my last comment you can take it to samsung service centre and have it checked by them.

You can do that in settings. I remember commenting that to you on early post. Just follow the instructions. . Backup all your stuff first. I would advice you not to flash your phone via odin. If not done probably it can brick your phone. So that's not a wise choice. Also check your apps. There could be one misbehaving that's causing the lagging. If all else fails take it to service centre and they will check it for you.
enuma, 14 Feb 2020please what should i do? my phone is hagging not responding, telling me ui is not responding, ... moreRe flash your phone. Check sammobile.com for firmware, ODIN and technical instruction.
If you afraid to do on your own, there is always samsung service centre to contact
