  4. Galaxy S10+ heating, battery life, lag while gaming:

    2. We do not have error logs so we can look into what might be causing this issue.
    3. We would request you to go to Get Help’ section, click on ‘Send Feedback’, and then click on ‘Error Reports’. Proceed to select your issue and write to us in detail.

  10. Note 10+ issues like lag while using apps, poor battery performance, and heating issues:
    1. So far, the error logs we received indicated that the users were using the smartphone while charging, or unusual screen-time or unusual app usage like playing games, watching movies for extended period of time or multiple actions executed at the same time- which was a common behavior during lockdown.
    2. If you face issues where your Galaxy smartphone is heating up despite above mentioned activities, we request you to please submit your error logs.
    3. To submit error log, go to Get Help’ section, click on ‘Send Feedback’, and then click on ‘Error Reports’. Proceed to select your issue and write to us in detail.
  11. Auto-restart of device when certain app is fired: This issue will be fixed in next update.
  12. Galaxy M31 lagging issue: There’s no error log that supports this. We would request you to go to Get Help’ section, click on ‘Send Feedback’, and then click on ‘Error Reports’. Proceed to select your issue and write to us in detail.
  13. Mobile data not working properly: During lockdown, many network providers were struggling with the bandwidth. From the few reports we’ve received the issue was due to network provider and not the device. Having said that, request you to please submit your error logs, so we can investigate more.
  14. Heating issue:
    1. This was one of the most reported issues in the past month. Unfortunately, we do not have error logs that indicate that this issue was due to device and not due to user behavior.
    2. We would request you to go to Get Help’ section, click on ‘Send Feedback’, and then click on ‘Error Reports’. Proceed to select your issue and write to us in detail.
    3. So far, the error logs we received indicated that the users were using the smartphone while charging, or unusual screen-time or unusual app usage like playing games, watching movies for extended period of time or multiple actions executed at the same time- which was a common behavior during lockdown.
    4. If you face issues where your Galaxy smartphone is heating up despite above mentioned activities, we request you to please submit your error logs.
  15. Battery discharge idle drain issue:
    1. Please run a quick device self-diagnosis and see if the battery is working fine.
    2. We would request you to go to Get Help’ section, click on ‘Send Feedback’, and then click on ‘Error Reports’. Proceed to select your issue and write to us in detail.

 

Important note: We can only fix the issues, if we receive error logs that capture the issue well. Here are some tips to capture good error logs:

  1. Capture the error logs within 3 minutes of the issue occurrence.
  2. Go to the ‘Get Help’ section, click on ‘Send Feedback’, and then click on ‘Error Reports’. Proceed to select your issue and write to us in detail.
  3. If you do not get a response within 72 hours of submitting an error report, please let us know with a screenshot. Please reach out to Admin, community managers, and BAs.

We hope this answers some of your queries and going forward, every week or two, we’ll call out for unanswered error reports, and top issues, and we’ll try our best to give you an update.

We’d like to thank our BAs for helping us collate the top issues, and we’d like to thank all of you for being patient with us.

We hope you, your family and friends are keeping safe! Looking forward to your comments/suggestions on how we can make this community better :)
