Is there another way to restart the phone, other than pressing volume and start button? It lowers the volume or opens Bixby - which I cannot delete - it says to hold both buttons for more than 7 (?) seconds - but I can't get the function to work, without changing the volume multiple times, or getting Bixby multiple times - it takes a good minute or linger to finally get the restart function to show.

 
Most annoying - not a happy camper with all the issues the last update created.

Do a search for Side Key in settings, click on the results ...see screen shot, then click on Side Key as shown in second screen shot. You should see the screen shot I showed earlier. Screenshot_20220216-165907_Settings Suggestions.jpgScreenshot_20220216-165918_Settings.jpg

That's because the default for holding the Side Key is to bring up Bixby ... DanG92263 changed the Side Key to bring up reboot screen

Not true. I have the s10+ which has a dedicated Bixby button on the opposite side of the power button, just below the volume keys. I think my s8 was the same and thought it was how every Samsung phone was. Maybe it's that way on just the s eries phones. My bad, but now I know.

Change Side Key setting for long-press Side Key to bring up the Reboot/ Shutdown screen - see screenshot


The Volume Up key + Side Key combination is when your phone is powered off, and you want to boot the phone up to the Recovery screen

You can make this even simpler by setting your side key to the power off menu, and this will keep Bixby from popping up. Also you can use the button in the quick panel at the top of your phone screen. See screen shots ...Screenshot_20220216-163012_Settings_3479_1645054440.jpgScreenshot_20220216-162945_Settings_3478_1645054481.jpg
