If you’ve been with us for a while, you must have spotted one particular option that keeps repeating with most Samsung Galaxy S9 troubleshooting guides. It’s the restart, an option you can easily access by long pressing the Power button of your smartphone. And the reason why it is so often recommended, in all kinds of situations, has to do with its ability to improve the performances of the device.
As you get to know your smartphone better and you read all kinds of guides and tutorials, you come to realize that restarting it on a regular basis will help a lot. You don’t just have to wait until a bug or a glitch starts manifesting to restart it but, on the contrary, you have to be proactive about it. By restarting the Samsung Galaxy S9 on a regular basis, you can actually prevent such glitches from showing up altogether. Bear in mind, though, to…
- Restart the phone to free up its RAM, to prevent blockages that can make you lose unsaved data, and, generally, to be one step ahead of the common bugs.
- Learn how to handle this process automatically, without you ever again having to worry about how often and when exactly to restart the Samsung Galaxy S9.
- Also importantly, learn that you can choose not only on what days you want it to restart but also at what hours, avoiding the unpleasant situation of getting caught by surprise with it.
If you like the sound of all that, we should specify that you shouldn’t stop reading this tutorial. If you try to find the auto restart option yourself, you might have a hard time. For whatever reasons, the manufacturer decided to keep it hidden. You probably won’t think about looking for it within the Backup & Reset submenu of the Settings…
Here’s how you can schedule the auto restart on Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus:
- Launch the Settings app, by swiping down from the top of the screen and selecting the special gear icon;
- Navigate to the Backup & Reset submenu listed in there;
- Find the Device Management tab;
- Look for the Auto restart option listed underneath that tab;
- Configure the Auto restart options, selecting the day and the hour when you want it to be triggered;
- Save the changes and leave the menus.
As you’ve noticed by following these instructions, the Auto restart is set, by default, to be triggered every Monday at 3 AM. Like we said, you can change that into anything that will better suit your needs. Just bear in mind that the Samsung Galaxy S9 will let this feature act when the screen is turned off, in a time of inactivity, and when its battery is at least 30% charged. Your only concern should, therefore, be to select an hour when you’re less likely to have the device in use!
