It's so weird that all galaxy devices takes forever to install ,,,,, I have found a fix


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.



Thanks.. 😀

He's right. If u wanna speed up your app installation. Actually while installing any app even from Playstore, the Samsung Malware Scanner scans for malware. So that results in a little bit longer time to install apps. Hence if we manually stop that service, then the app installation does get faster.

But it's good to scan the application for malware. Ain't it?
Cause some applications contain adware, Spyware etc.

But all said, I won't recommend using this cause though this improved the installation time, I myself won't mind waiting for the malware service to scan the apps even if it takes some seconds more
