Samsung smartphones have always been considered among the highest quality and reliable. Effect advanced age of the brand, tremendous financial opportunities, allowing them to conduct its own research and development, and the trust of our partners like Google, which allowed Samsung to release the first Nexus. Over time the quality of the products of the Korean company practically has not changed, which also played into her hands, after all, to hold the bar for many years, especially when you put pressure on competitors is quite difficult. But apparently nothing lasts forever.
Did you know? Samsung bought Android and gave it to Google
Samsung smartphones, including the flagship, suffer about a lot of problems. This and the shortcomings of the software, which does not allow them to fully realize their hardware potential, and low quality materials or manufacturing defects, and inadvertent disconnection of the apparatus or escape into an endless reboot cycle. On that last issue, by the way, users began to report a couple of days ago, since last weekend, nothing similar was observed, which, however, did not justify Samsung.
Samsung restarts itself
According to users who have decided to understand the causes of the incident without waiting for a reply of the manufacturer, it’s all in the failure of the calendar. Due to the fact that in different countries, the chronology is different, these outages sometimes occur. For example, in China traditional (lunar) calendar – APR, calendar and accidentally took the information from the lunar calendar to the Gregorian, which caused a serious failure in work of all systems of the smartphone that corny could not begin to perceive two different dates.

Despite the fact that a failure were to affect only the Chinese, he went outside the country. It has affected the residents of the border regions, as well as the owners of the Chinese versions of smartphones, which even the Russians often buy on eBay or AliExpress to save. And, apparently, all the problem manifests itself in different ways. If some of us are experiencing endless reboots, others report that their unit may restart with some frequency, still allowing you to access the interface.
Rebooted Samsung. What to do
- Remove from tray SIM-card and disable the Wi-Fi network was connected to a smartphone, so he can’t get information about time and date;
- Go to the Galaxy App Store, find the Calendar app and install the latest update;
- After that, go to “Settings” and disable automatic app updates;
- Just in case, go to settings, time and date and move date for a month or two earlier.

Of course, this is only a temporary solution, but at least for a month it will save you from spontaneous reboots of the smartphone, which can not cope alone with the two streams of information about dates. And during this time – at least, I would like to believe it – the Samsung developers will find the cause of the problem and will release an update with the fix. Here it is best not to neglect, because after a month you risk again to face disruptions in the system determine the time and date, which in turn will again cause a reboot.

Even if this problem does not affect users worldwide, the fact that it manifested itself, indicates a rather strange approach Samsung to develop for their smartphones. For some unknown reason, the developers just did not consider the peculiarities of the chronology of the Chinese calendar, which caused the overlap of the two date each other. And okay, if this issue was the only one, but no – since the release of the Galaxy S20 Samsung has received huge number of negative reviews from users, dissatisfied with his work.
