With almost no bevels, there is nowhere to put your hand during use. That said, a quick change in configuration will prevent accidental these faucets. Or, simply disable the panel edge as I did.
- Go to Settings and select Display
- Scroll down to accidental Touch Protection
- Flip the switch to ON
This not only helps prevent accidental taps and touches in general, but also helps with accidental taps into a pocket, purse, bag or dark areas. On the other hand, we are seeing complaints about the color change and bad angles vision in the S10, where the display has a red tint to it. We are hoping that this can be solved by a software update, we have seen a similar situation with the Galaxy S8 in 2017.

A huge problem for the three models of the Galaxy S10 on Sprint 4G LTE is not. These phones are stuck on old, slow 3G speeds where the Internet does not work nearly so, the videos do not load, and the phones are almost a clipboard.

How to Fix Galaxy S10 Bluetooth Problems
Samsung’s new phones run the latest Android Pie 9 with an interface A user interface refreshed on top of the Google software. And, for the first time in a few years, we do not see too BT complaints yet. That said, you are likely to experience some problems with Bluetooth in your car, home stereo or accessories.

How to Fix Galaxy S10 WiFi and GPS issues
With each new version of the phone, we see reports of WiFi problems. And we are already seeing comments on the poor performance, WiFi drops, connection problems and more with the Galaxy S10 even if it supports the new Wi-Fi protocol 6. This is almost never a problem with the phone itself, and more often than anything else.
We found that Samsung SmartSwitch super useful tool to transfer an old phone to a new phone can often be the problem of poor Wi-Fi. The software has transferred the name, password and connection for you. It’s nice, but it could also be your problem.
Those struggling with Wi-Fi Galaxy S10 connection problems have some things they can try. First, we recommend you forget your WiFi network and re-enter the password on the phone. To do this, under Settings> Connections> Wi-Fi. Tap and hold your home Internet connection and delete the network from the pop-up window. Then the search for a Wi-Fi, find yours, put the password and it should work. Better yet, reset your network settings to default. We found unplugging the power to the router for 10 seconds will give a new start. Then try to connect your Galaxy S10 again.
In addition, we have a super useful trick to the problems of WiFi. Come connection in Settings> Connections> WiFi> Advanced> Wi-Fi and disable sleep option. This way WiFi remains on regardless, even when the screen is off. Now, all your applications and services continue to use WiFi, and you do not need to keep the screen while you update applications.
How to Fix Galaxy S10 Always-On Display and problems Wake Lift
Samsung has added a new “lift to wake up” feature of the S10 galaxy. When you pick up the screen automatically comes to life. It is nice, but some people do not like. In addition, we see a ton of complaints that the elevator to wake up or AOD feature makes the phone clock in the pockets, which drains the battery.
So here’s how to change, customize and tweak the display always on. We will also show you how to turn off the elevator to wake function.
Go to Settings> Lock screen> and press Always-On Display. From here you can customize and change the whole experience. Personally, we recommend you leave it on it’s going to reduce how often you wake the phone – leading to greater autonomy.
Then return to the main menu settings and access advanced features> Motions and gestures> and uncheck the elevator to wake function. While you’re here, kill the “double-tap to wake up” if it continues to go far in your pocket. Samsung will fix this with an update of the software later.
Disabling these settings if your phone battery is empty in your pocket
How to Fix Galaxy S10 wet Speaker Problems
The Galaxy S10 and S10 + is IP68 dust and water resistant. In other words, you can take it in the shower, drop it in the pool, or use it for about 5 feet deep worry. The phone can technically handle about 5 feet for 30 minutes and still works fine. Even the two speakers can handle a little water.
However, if the speaker is wet or grill your phone will sound funny and cozy. This is not a concern and there is no damage, just to try it.
Samsung uses a coating on the inside of the device to maintain the safety components. Then something they call “surface tension” to prevent water from both speakers. If your music or speaker seems funny that you just need to let it dry. Or, press gently against your hand to push the water out of the enclosure. Most likely there is nothing wrong with your phone, just give it time.
Bonus tip: Do not charge your phone when it is wet. Leave the port USB charging type C completely dry before plugging your phone to recharge the battery.
How to Fix Galaxy S10 Life Battery Problems
With a larger battery 3400 mAh in Galaxy S10 and a pack of 4,100 mAh more in the S10 +, these phones get some of the best battery life we’ve ever seen. It’s pretty impressive. However, some users may experience problems or battery problems that need attention.
First, here’s our great guide to fix the problems of poor life of the Galaxy S10 battery. Your next step to resolve any situation of the battery is by heading to Settings> Device maintenance> Battery> Battery use to see what happens. This gives you a detailed breakdown on what uses what, and even shows the drain of the battery # 1 at the top of the list.
If the application does not work or rogue will use too much battery and appear at the top of this list. If you see anything other than the display, the screen, the Android system, or OS Android at the top, or the game you just played, then something is not right. Disabling or reinstalling the applications or services that drain the battery more than it should.
Back in March, the update remains a “deep sleep” problems for those with a Samsung Exynos version of the phone (mainly models outside the US). Later, another update for all other models arrived and we are expecting another in July and throughout the summer.
And finally, an update July Galaxy S10 destroying battery life for models of US carriers, particularly AT & T. We have a super simple way to fix it, though, so give it a try.
Basically, turn off any and all operator networks or additional devices or diagnostic tools. Update June / July for AT & T Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus adds something called “AT & T mobile network diagnostics” to the mobile network settings menu, and ON by default. This deadly use our steps in the image above, and looking for something similar from Verizon or T-Mobile.
How to Fix Galaxy Camera S10
Initially, we see no major complaints about the Galaxy S10 camera, but some users on Reddit along with reports of their problems. One of the front camera too close when you use the application outside Samsung camera application. In addition, the June update spoil Galaxy S10 camera in 3rd party applications like Facebook, Instagram or Snapchat, especially when trying to record a video.
Security Patch summer broken auto-focus for the Galaxy S10 on both AT & T and T-Mobile. My AT & T Galaxy S10 + almost completely unusable with Snapchat or Instagram, because they never focus on the subject while trying to take a photo or video. We saw some reports about this from the user. Samsung aware of this problem and keep it updated in August, mostly. Unfortunately, Snapchat still can not use the back camera on the Galaxy S10 +, because they went completely out of focus. So far the only fix we found was to install Snapchat version 6-month-old. Like Snapchat v10.57 here.
Update: Samsung and AT & T issued an update again on July 31, and followed that with a larger on 26 August (in the US) both claimed to have the camera repairs. 3rd party applications focusing better now, but still not perfect. Update September at Verizon upgraded the camera as well.
We also see reports that the button for three rear camera does not always switch to a particular lens. I do not see the problem, but if you are, try rebooting your phone. Then, users reported dim and dark super video experience that is super slow-motion. 960 FPS slow-mo feature requires a lot of light for the best experience, so if you try it in the room, you will not enjoy the results. It did not matter, that’s just how this new technology works so far.
Reboot Galaxy S10 to Fix Problems Most
Before we share our final tip, try a simple reboot. Almost every problem we hear from friends, family, or see online can be quickly remedied by rebooting your Galaxy S10. Seriously, before you try something big, reboot the phone. Not receiving the text message, reboot your phone. Your voice does not work, reboot the phone.
Press and hold the power button on the right side of your Galaxy S10, then tap restart. Within about 1 minute you’ll be up and running with nearly every problem is gone.
Also, go to Settings> Device Maintenance> and hit a 3-point at the top corner and select Auto Restart. Now, choose the time and day of the week, like Wednesday at 04:00. This way your phone will reboot once a week at night so that the performance remains the best, and the problem is a thing of the past.
How to Factory Reset Galaxy S10
Most owners will not experience major problems with the Galaxy S10 or S10 +. If you have tried everything that we have mentioned above and examined by your operator for help, we have one last step that you can try before looking to his successor. The last attempt to fix the big problem is to perform a factory data reset. This will delete all user data, applications, messages, and content from the phone. Only do this if there is something seriously wrong and show-stopping problems.
Keep in mind that you will want to backup your data before proceeding. Go to Settings> General Management> and tap Reset to start.
This process will only take a few minutes and will restore the original software that came with your phone. The owner can use the Samsung Galaxy S10 SmartSwitch or Google returns to get back all their applications. Again, this is the last option if you have a big problem. If this does not fix it, consider contacting a Samsung or your carrier for a replacement phone.
