Today a bug started happening on my galaxy a50 where the phone refuses to dim and go to the black screensaver.
It just stays on the lock screen and each time i press the lock button it will turn black for a split second but will then instantly light back up again, displaying the lock screen so the power is draining much quicker.
The phone is also refusing to charge. I have never had either of these two issues before and have had the phone for about 10 months.
I thought the screen issue could be to do with the "lift to wake" feature or the face ID constantly trying to scan for a face but both are turned off and the problem remains.

It has probably not been updated in the last 5 or six months to be honest I keep postponing the update.
I was going to try and update to see if it would resolve the bug but as my phone is below 20% charge and will not charge up it will not allow me to update.
Thank you, i hope so too.

UPDATE: The phone is now turned on and seems to be remaining on. The screen issue is no longer occuring however the battery percentage is frozen at one percent (though it must be getting power from the charger cable otherwise it would still be dead)
