1. Fix Problem With The Samsung Galaxy S21 Camera
This error occurs when changing modes or Zoom, causing the camera to malfunction. This is a very common problem, which is why Samsung released a firmware update in early June 2021 to fix it, as the fault was caused by a bug in the device’s software.
If your phone is suffering from this problem, simply update the software to the latest version.
2. Battery Life Issues
The Samsung Galaxy S21 features a 4,000 mAh battery, so it is capable of lasting a day or more. However, some users have reported that the battery offers less battery life than expected.
You can check if there is a problem as follows:
- Go to “Settings” and access the “Device Maintenance” section.
- Click on “Battery” and look at the “Battery usage” graph to see if any apps are consuming an excessive amount of battery life.
- If you detect a fault, you can fix the problem by adjusting aspects of the screen that tend to consume a lot of battery.
Most likely the “Adaptive refresh rate” is set to 120 Hz, set it to 60 Hz to reduce the battery drain. To do this you should do the following:
- Go to “Settings” and click on “Display”.
- Click on “Motion Smoothness”.
- Select “60 Hz refresh rate” and click “Apply”.
You can also adjust the screen resolution by following the steps below:
- Go to “Settings” and select “Display”.
- Click on “Screen selection”.
- Choose the resolution you want and click on “Apply”.
3. Fix Overheating problems on Samsung Galaxy S21
Another common problem is the Galaxy S21 overheating when multitasking or downloading files. The problem was suspected to be caused by the device’s 5G, but was eventually ruled out because the problem persisted even when mobile data was turned off.
Samsung itself has decided to put an end to the bug by releasing an update that fixes bugs in the device such as the device overheating. Another solution to the problem is to avoid leaving the phone charging overnight.
Also, if you’re looking to reset your phone, you can enter into the recovery mode on your Galaxy S21 and perform a factory reset.

5. Problems With Samsung Pay And Updates
The problem seems to only affect devices in Europe. The error is caused by the CSG, a code that varies from country to country and is responsible for enabling certain functions.

To fix the problem, please follow these instructions:
- Go to “Settings” and select the “Applications” option.
- Click on “Samsung Pay”.
- Click on “Storage”.
- Select “Clear Cache” and “Clear Data”.
