I recently bought S21 Ultra (Exynos variant) and I couldn't help to notice that App Installation in S21 Ultra is very slow. I have a Xiaomi note 7s with snapdragon 660 in it and a 4GB ram. I tried running a test on both of them. Samsung S21 Ultra lost in every single app installation. I mean the time gap was more than 15 secs. 

For eg. I installed Facebook on both phones and Samsung took like 25-30 secs extra. 

So is it a software bug or what...coz it's really frustrating when you need apps to install quicker. Anyone with a Snapdragon variant of S21 Ultra, can u please check with your device.

Thanks

I have the SD version device. I did notice the first day I had the phone that everything seemed rather slowish. After a day or 2 of usage, power on/off cycles and app installs it greatly improved. My 5G was even super slow the first day. All is well now so hopefully yours will settle in nicely if it hasn't already.

Its been over 2 weeks but still not much of a difference. I hope this is something they can fix via software update. Thanks for the reply

Guys I think I discovered the issue.

In

Settings ->

Battery and device care ->

three dots top right ->

Automation ->

Disable scan for malware.

 

This improved the play store install speed for me.

 

Let me know if you found this useful.
