Android 12 has caused the S10 to crash and become unstable

Hi there,
I decided to update everything, including the Jan 1st security update, after learning that you receive a notification when your microphone or camera is used. The updates caused my phone to crash, and there are bugs everywhere. Here are some examples:

Notifications should be displayed in bank apps

YouTube music and the YouTube app consistently crash or don't work

I need to cancel my Google Play Store subscription since it expired 10 minutes ago

There is a lot of lag and sluggishness with Google Chrome

When my internet connection is down while I'm locked out of WhatsApp, I don't receive notifications until I open the app and unlock my phone.

Never sleep does not have any apps available for addition.

The situation has been a complete mess. In addition to trying all the apps and generic solutions, including cleaning the cache/data, logging, and restarting several times in Safe Mode, the problem has occurred multiple times. Everything has been tried. I cannot reinstall these apps since they came with the device. All settings related to unrestricted background usage, for instance, were browsed through. Since I have a lot of authenticators (personal and work) and the banking app, I cannot do a factory reset. According to what I understand, I am not the only one experiencing issues following this update, so a fix should be released as soon as possible. After an update, a factory reset may not work. These issues may be caused by Samsung's latest software update, so Google or Samsung should be notified.

Hi, have you tried wiping the cache partition on your phone. This should help to solve the issue.

Now need to connect   S10 to computer or plug in USB-C Headphones  , follow the other advice. It would also be advisable to Repair apps from the same Recovery Menu.

I do not work for Samsung or make Samsung Products but provide independent advice and valuable contributions.
