Samsung Repairs for When Your Phone is Already Slow

If your smartphone is already slow, and you have had it for a couple of years. You could get a new one. Or fix it. As we said, Samsung repairs have proven to be a more economical as well environmentally friendly solution.

If your Samsung smartphone is still slow after trying all the steps above, then you should try booting it in safe mode. Safe mode will run your phone using only the essential operating system, meaning all applications and additional features you installed will be unavailable.

If the phone works completely fine in safe mode, the reason is a corrupt or a faulty app or feature. You should then try to find which app is responsible or simply reset your phone to factory settings (don’t forget to back up your information!).

How to enter Safe Mode:

  1. Turn your phone off and wait 10 seconds
  2. Hold the Power button to turn it back on.
  3. When you see the Samsung logo, press and hold the power and volume down keys at the same time
  4. It will start again, this time in safe mode, release the power key, but hold the volume down key until the system loads.
  5. Exiting the safe mode is as easy as restarting your smartphone.

On the other hand, if safe mode doesn’t fix the problem, you are facing a possible corruption in the operating system and your best bet would be to bring the device to a Samsung repair service provider.

All you need to do is pick the repair online and bring your smartphone to one of our shops. If you need help or you have questions, you are always free to contact us.
