Samsung Galaxy S2 keeps freezing

Please can somebody help me.

My phone keeps freezing at least once a day so I have to take the battery out for the phone to reset.

Model number GT-I9100

Android version 4.0.4

 

No new updates are available and it is really driving me nuts, any advice would be grately appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Try a factory reset. This will sort out of a few issues.

 

Be warned you will lose some things and need to restore them such as Apps, settings, contacts however these can be redownloaded and resynchronised. Obviously.

 

Another thing you can try doing is charging the battery from scratch with the S2 off. Partial charges aren't always the best option for these phones.

 

Hope that helps.

Yes, I can never understand why everybody seems to put unnecessary apps onto their Galaxy phones (Ace/S2/S3 etc...).
Battery saver apps & task killer apps are completely unecessary on these phones (and any Android!) because the phone has its own in-built software to do exactly that! 

These extra apps actually have a negative effect on the phone! :smileysad:

Everything will be OK in the end. If it isn't OK, then it's not the end!!
