The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus seems to be coming down with quite some glitches as some tech users and customers of the tech company who purchased the device which was launched back in April have revealed that some of the units are having problems charging with the wireless Qi pads.
Although the problematic units are yet unsolved as some other users have registered that their devices work perfectly with the wireless charging pad, others who are affected by the tech glitch are waiting for a possible software update to fix the problem.
The latest problem which has befallen the latest device from the tech company is the unnecessary and unwarranted restart which the phone subjects itself to.
The latest problem comes hot on the heels of the Red tint display glitch which the company earlier claimed was caused by a hardware problem.
The tech company which released a software update for the fix of the red tint display on the Galaxy S8 and the S8 Plus to clear up the red discoloration to the display is however yet to address the latest problem as complained by some users in online forums.
The restart according to some of the affected users could be traumatic although a temporary fix to the issue has been found. For the temporary fix, it is believed among users that the microSD slot and subsequently, the card in it is the culprit for the unnecessary restart and therefore the temporary fix involves users who are plagued with this type of glitch removing their SD card.
The sad news, however, is that you may not be among the lucky few whose Galaxy S8 or S8 Plus phone is fixed by this step as some other users have claimed that the problem persisted even after ejecting their microSD cards from their phones.
The restart issue, however, comes in different forms as some users complained that the issue might have been caused by a bug in the lock or Always-On Display screen feature and another potential culprit is the power save feature.
Some other users suffering from the glitch have reported the issue to have repeated itself while their device was in Safe Mode as some other users are of the opinion that the fingerprint and iris scanner may be conflicting thereby causing the device to hard reboot.
A user who complained to the tech company’s representative, however, mentioned that he was recommended to send the phone back to his retailer for replacement.
Users experiencing this type of problem should most definitely contact Samsung and its representatives before attempting to snoop around on the phone as it is most likely that the OEM is working on finding a fix, one which will be expected to arrive soon enough.
