We got our new Z Flip 5 Tuesday and went through the setup process yesterday, after moving the data over, the phone crashed 3 - 4 times while installing apps, when manually installing apps from google play most of the time would get an error with an unable to install app message, clicking it a second time would work. The phone restarted like 3 times again after that in random occasions, mostly when unlocking it. Last night while configuring google meet, it crashed but didn't reboot right away, after 2 - 3 min it rebooted and now can't go past the unlock screen without it crashing. Safe mode, removing sim card, wiped cache, same results. If you don't attempt to unlock the phone it won't crash but as soon as you do the pattern like 5 secs after it will crash and reboot. Can't even power it down, it crashes during the power down process and reboot. Any ideas? did I just receive a defective unit?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I hate to say it, but if the phone crashes while booting in Safe Mode (and during all the other times you mentioned) then you might just want to exchange your Flip 5 for a new one if possible. Are you able to factory reset at all?
Happening to me after factory resetting it 2x I decided to do a master reset that’s when you hold the power button and volume rocker at the same time then manually navigating to clear the phone it worked until I set up chrome again
