Samsung has taken its mid-range smartphones game to a completely new level with its refreshed A series. And very much like its many feature-packed smartphones, Samsung Galaxy A51 is an amazing device that comes with a stunning AMOLED display and overall reliability to customers who don’t want to break the bank.
However, there have been many cases of reported issues in Samsung A51 that include keyboard issues, display issues, and quite a few others.
And by going through many posts shared by Galaxy A51 users, here in this post we have compiled a list of some of the most common Samsung Galaxy A51 issues with solutions.
Let’s have a look…
Battery Draining Issues
Battery draining issues have been the most common among Samsung Galaxy A51 users. Although the phone packs a giant 4000mAh battery along with the stunning AMOLED display ought to provide a considerable Screen-on Time, the battery drains way too much, even when the phone is not in use.
Well, here’s how you can fix it:
- Disable any background apps.
- Turn off Wi-Fi, Location Services, and Mobile Data when not in use.
- Make sure that your network signal is strong. In the event that the device is constantly searching for a new network, it will drain the battery faster.
- Turn off the Auto-brightness feature and set the brightness manually (to low).
Issues In UI & Animation
On the other hand, the Samsung Galaxy A51 users have also reported a lot of issues concerning One UI which freezes, while transition animations are lagging as well.
We have a couple of tips that should help you out, if not to resolve, then to at least mitigate the lags.
Here’s what you should do:
- Reboot your Samsung Galaxy A51.
- Bring down the Animation scale in Developer options from 1 to 0.5 scale or just disable them.
- Restrict the number of background apps in Developer options.
- Update your phone if there are any updates available.
- If lags persist, then hard reset Samsung Galaxy A51 and start over again.
This issue is also common like the Battery Draining Issue as it is quite often reported in several forums. The main reason behind this issue could be the chip.
Samsung’s Exynos chips that are extensively used by Samsung devices are known to be prone to overheat. Specifically in case that you are gaming for an extended time, or have poor network coverage, or you are using the device while it is charging.
To avoid this problem, try keeping your phone up-to-date, moreover, make sure to take out the protective casing when the phone is charging. Do not use any third-party chargers as they are likely to damage your battery.
Bluetooth problem is also among the reported issues from the A51 users. While this is a common issue, here’s how you can fix the problem.
- Restart your phone.
- Try unpairing and pairing your handset again with your phone.
- Turn off Bluetooth A2DP Hardware Offload in Developer Options.
- Try resetting Network Settings.
Issues With VPN
VPNs are common these days and many people rely on VPNs to browse the web safely. Regardless of whether due to privacy concerns or eliminating geo-restrictions, it is a must-have for many users.
And a lot of OEMs (along with Samsung) went as far as to provide VPN a separate division in the Settings menu, with the options like Always-on VPN to make sure that the VPN will be functional in the background.
But many times, some A51 users have issues with connecting to a VPN effectively. This issue is minor and can be solved easily. First off, you make sure that the VPN app that you are using has the necessary permissions. If yes, but the issue persists, then try reinstalling the app.
And that’s it, folks! With that sorted out, we can call it a wrap. Thank you for reading, hopefully, this post helped you solve any problems that you are facing on your Galaxy A51.
