Latest update for the Tab S7 Plus has slowed down my device.

I installed the latest update for the Tab S7 Plus yesterday afternoon and since then my tab has been intermittently lagging and the screen also becomes unresponsive. Is this just a "me" problem or a "we" problem?

I'm hoping that there's a quick fix for this because this is a pain.

Wipe cache partition, also download good guardians from galaxy store. Run galaxy app booster. See if this helps.

Thanks, Fiona. I did run the app booster as soon as I updated but I will try this again and this time with all apps and not just frequently used apps. How do I wipe cache partition?

If you do not have a pc. USB c headphones plugged in will work to.
Sometimes just rebooting the tab can also help with issues. To reboot hold volume down and power key together until your tablet powers off itself, then restarts.

I rebooted but the problem still persists and I tried accessing the boot menu using USB C headphones but that didn't seem to work, the tablet restarted normally. I guess I'm going to have to use my computer for this. It doesn't make sense why Samsung requires the need to have the tablet plugged in to a computer 🙄. Oh well.

I honestly agree, you never needed to plug into a pc or head phones. That came along with android 11. The only other option is to back up your stuff on the tab and factory reset. I actually just read someone's reply on a recent post. There s20 is overheating. Someone replied that they had to do factory reset on there s7+ after an update. Due to lagging and freezing. Sounds the same as what your experiencing. After factory reset tablet works great again.

It's silly because some people have likely replaced their computers for Samsung tablets and it'd be extremely problematic for them. I may decide to factory reset mine too because I have nothing on it that needs to be backed up. Thank you for your ever present help, Fiona.

Hopefully they change it back in android 12. Let me know if the factory reset solves the issues.
