Problems with Samsung One UI 6.1

Thanks to One UI 6.1, you get access to AI (artificial intelligence) on the Galaxy S23 and other older Samsung smartphones. It is therefore an update that many people want to install on their device as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, One UI 6.1 appears to cause problems in some cases.

9to5Google found that users of the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy Z Fold 5 are complaining that their phones are charging slower after the update. Where they normally fill up with battery juice with a maximum of 25 watts, they are now stuck at 15 watts. That is of course very slow, especially for such expensive devices.

In addition, the smartphones become warmer than before installing the update. That could be related to the AI ​​functions mentioned. These require relatively much from the processor.

Sammobile reports yet another issue with Galaxy S23 smartphones after downloading One UI 6.1. Some users experience difficulties with the fingerprint scanner. When they pick up their device, an animation no longer appears where they have to hold their finger against the screen.

When they do, the S23 refuses to unlock. If they take their finger off the display again, the scanner still seems to wake up and they can gain access to the smartphone.

The Samsung Galaxy S23 now up to €7.50 discount per month!

Samsung has not yet responded to these annoying bugs. An update may be released in the near future that will resolve the issues.
