Just a few weeks ago, Samsung started rolling out the stable build of its One UI 4.0 based on Android 12 to the Galaxy S21 series. With the latest Android OS skin installed, Galaxy S21 users get a host of new features along with Google’s Material You-inspired UI theming. However, S21 users have now started reporting a series of issues that they’re facing with the latest OS. As per the reports, the Android 12-based One UI 4.0 update carries several bugs that cause several issues on their Galaxy S21 devices.
Recently, some affected S21 users had reported stuttering and lagging issues while scrolling through content on their devices running Android 12. But now, a new issue has popped up on the newly-upgraded S21 devices. As per the latest reports (1, 2), there’s another bug in the One UI 4.0 that is making it harder for users to use some apps. The apps reportedly crash and stop working, and there is currently no workaround to fix it by the users themselves. It’s quite surprising that Samsung didn’t fix this issue during the beta stage.
App Crashing Issue On Galaxy S21: Fix May Come in Next Update
S21 users took to Twitter, Reddit, and Samsung’s community forum (1, 2) to complain about the issue of several apps crashing after upgrading their phones to stable One UI 4 based on Android 12. Some users are facing the majority of apps being crashed, while some say that only specific apps are crashing. This is quite frustrating for users as even important apps like some banking apps are crashing.
There’s currently nothing that users can do to get rid of such an annoying issue, as simple troubleshooting steps also don’t fix the problem. Usually, the crashing issues get fixed easily by clearing the app’s cache/data or simply rebooting the device. However, this is also not working. The problem seems to lie in the latest One UI code, and we hope Samsung fixes it soon. Although, the company hasn’t yet acknowledged this issue.
