The longer Android runs without rebooting, the greater the likelihood of glitches and crashes. This is not about a particular phone model, this applies to any operating system. We restart Windows computers, laptops, and Android is no exception in this regard. How often the Android operating system starts to glitch, depends not only on it itself, but it depends on what applications are installed on the phone or tablet and how many of them. A third-party applications are being developed by various developers. Some of them are more successful, others are less and cause various problems and glitches. We often advise restarting your Android device if there are any problems that cannot be solved in any way. Here is how to set up scheduled auto restarts on Samsung Galaxy S20, S10 and similar devices that run OneUI 2.
How to Auto Restart a Galaxy Phone (OneUI 2)
Do the following:
- Go to Settings.
- Select Device Care:
- Tap on three dots.
- Select Advanced:
- Dive into auto-restart settings by tapping the text:
- Toggle on Auto-restart.
- And choose when you prefer your phone to restart automatically. In most cases it will be okay to reboot your Galaxy S20 (S10) once a week – for example at 3 AM on Wednesday.
But if you are experiencing a lot of glitches (which can be fixed by a reboot) you may choose to reboot your phone more often – for instance three time a week or even every night. That’s it. From now on your Galaxy device will restart at the specified time.
Please, tell us in the comments, whether or not you use this feature on your Galaxy S20, S10 or any other model and what was the reason of enabling the feature. Thank you and good luck in optimizing your Galaxy!
