I have recently purchased S20+ and after a week I am facing an issue when I unlock the phone. After the screen is turned on the screen freezes for some secs and then it works normally. I have tried resetting the phone and also removed the cache. I tried starting the phone in safe mode and the problem is still there.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Same issue here... in 2021.
Running the phone pretty much stock, and never running more than 2 to 3 apps at a time.
I go to unlock the phone, and my lock screen pulls up, but I'm unable to swipe to unlock. Screen just stalls. Then blurs out. If I press the side lock button the phone goes black and stays black for a prolonged period. Usually the only way it resolves is if I: 1. wait 15 - 20 seconds, after which time the lock screen sometimes reappears (and stops freezing), or 2. restart the phone (lock and volume down). It's been happening 5 or more times per day for the past few days.
Pretty ridiculous for a phone I bought just a couple months ago... And yes, I've run all system updates. Still no luck.
I have had this phone since November 2020 (S20 FE 5G) & it will often lock up on me to the point where I have to manually power it off for a reboot. I've cleaned it, updated it, I haven't overcharged it, I've done everything I've read about & it still locks up. The lockscreen won't even let me access the phone. I sometimes use my phone for medical purposes, & this could be a matter of life & death (literally. I'm a paramedic). I'm about to throw it out.
