I just got S20 and it keeps freezing sometimes and I have to restart the phone to fix it?

it's the software update that that's the problem. factory resetting does not help. i sent mine back to samsung for repair. they told me they'd never heard of this problem. please, everyone, call your service provider and have them send a ticket to samsung so they know this is a normal issue with this phone, and they need to do a new software update to fix it!

I was having the same problem on various apps. Turning off Google Assistant use screen context seems to have solved it for me.

Wow, my friend. I logged in especially to thank you for your suggestion. I have been plagued with this since I got the phone at launch. I Turned off screen context as suggested and scrolling is buttery smooth now. No more pauses/freezes in Chrome and the Amazon app no longer locks up and looses all the thumbnail/images when you're scrolling through. WHAT A DIFFERENCE.

 

It feels like a new phone 😊👍

Just upgraded to S20 Ultra from my S10 Plus - big mistake

My phone is freezing exactly like yours It has been happening in Chrome

Have tried a number of other Web access programmes but I continue to experience 'freezing' even when using these

The phone even freezes when I'm using Samsung Internet

If the phone is freezing and locking while in Safe Mode and after a reset, service would be recommended. Please send a private message with the full model code and IMEI number. http://bit.ly/2XERsky
