I own a S10 Lite and found that a bug exist within the One UI Home which is annoying. I use Nova Launcher because I like to set my phone up in my distinct style. Last year a bug appeared where if you cleared the recent apps, the launcher would default back to One UI Home. The phone was on Android 10 at the time and this issue randomly appeared.
Even if you set Nova as the default home app, if you cleared recent apps, it would default back to One UI Home. The only way to fix this would to be clear all the data from One UI Home and then select Nova again as the default home app. This would be fine for a few days and then it would happen again.
I turn off my phone every night. When I would restart, every few days, I would need to do this dance. My gripe is that after the recent update, 30/01/2021, every time you restart the phone, you have do this. The phone is on Android 11 now with One UI 3.0.
If this is a bug, Samsung is not taking this issue seriously. Why would clearing your recent apps default the home app back to One UI Home when Nova Launcher has been set as the default? Its a bug that needs to be fixed.
This doesn't happen only for Nova Launcher, I've found this has occurred for other launchers as well. Its not a launcher specific issue.
The solution I found to this issue was to use Good Lock and Task Changer. But due to the recent update to One UI 3.0, I need to wait for task Changer to be updated. A part me didn't want to share this solution because I think Samsung will somehow find a way to screw this up.
If anyone else is having this issue, please add it here. Its about time Samsung actually took this seriously.
I can accept it may not be compatible with Android 11 but it doesn't explain why the issue kept on occurring on Android 10. There have been other topics raised with the same issue before the update.
I believe this is a bug as it has occurred with other launchers as well on Android 10.
My apologies for not mentioning that. I will edit that in now. Thank you for raising that point.
I am on the Beta currently for Nova 7 but this issue keeps on occurring. I don't want to factory reset the phone. As stated above, when I used Task Changer would Good Lock, the issue didn't occur.
The only other thing I am using it One Hand Operation + but I don't think that is causing this issue.
I'm on beta UI 3.0 and using nova , I get it rarely where I double tap to lock and it flashes up to select device admin . I'd get off the nova beta !! Beta is normally buggy so that might be your issue but I have minimal issues using nova
I've tried different launchers. Same problem. The only thing that has worked is changing the task changer.
Have you tried restarting nova in nova settings ?
