When something on our smartphone doesn’t work, we tend to take the device to the store or try things like a factory reset. It is true that in some cases it does. However, we end up losing some things and then we have to configure everything again. However, if you have a Samsung Galaxy smartphone, there is a very simple way to quickly find out if there is a problem.
Samsung Galaxy: quickly find a fault!
If something on your smartphone has stopped working and you are convinced that it is possibly a hardware problem (although in 80% of cases it is not) you can try various components of your smartphone.
So start by going to the settings of your Samsung Galaxy smartphone. Then click where it says device and battery maintenance.
Now in the new window where we have an overview of the state of our device we have to click on the diagnostics option.
Now we have the possibility to test various components of the smartphone. In this way we find out whether the problem lies in a software or hardware failure. We can fully test all components or just one.
If nothing is detected and the problems still persist, there is something very simple you can try.
Whenever we tell someone that we have a problem with their smartphone or any other technological device, the first question they ask is: “Have you tried turning it on and off”? This may sound irritating as it is very general advice. But is there any truth to this so-called quick fix, or is it just a way of trying to get rid of us? The truth is that in the case of smartphones, restarting really solves most problems!
Smartphones: Rebooting solves most problems!
What happens when we restart?
Actually many things but let’s start with RAM. PC memory stores short-term data. The stored data is used to carry out all kinds of tasks in any application that you have used since the last time you turned on your smartphone.
If you want to access a web page or app, it can be done quickly using RAM as it provides your device with the relevant data stored in anticipation of your next move.
However, as we do various things with the smartphone, this RAM memory is used for various things and processes are replaced as they are no longer needed.
Since it is a temporary memory, the RAM is cleared of all its data every time the smartphone restarts. There are other ways to clear RAM besides resetting. However this is always the easiest and most effective method. In addition, it has other benefits.
But why solve so many problems?
When RAM fills up with unnecessary data, overall performance can significantly decrease. So loading apps and files can become frustrating, and it can seem that our smartphone is really old. This is because even if you manually close your applications after use, some data may remain in RAM. Restarting your smartphone clears it completely.
That said, the more space you have in your RAM, the faster your smartphone can react to commands. Thus, restarting your smartphone when you notice a decrease in performance can be a quick fix. However, this is not a guaranteed solution. Running out of RAM is a common cause of slow smartphone performance, but not the only one.
It might seem like restarting your smartphone is just an excuse to get someone off the hook. After all, everyone tends to assume it’s a quick fix. But in reality it may turn out to be true. Restarting your smartphone can fix a number of problems (though it’s not a universal solution). So if you’re having performance, connection or similar issues, try a quick restart to see if that helps.
