...your phone may have started to fail. You could have it evaluated at a local phone repair store to see if it is easily fixable. Could be as simple as loose cable inside or a complex as a broken circuit board. Too difficult to determine over the internet.
The average lifespan of a cell phone is about 2 years although I have had some last much longer.
I have a Samsung Galaxy On5 phone, and I have had it for around three years.
Recently, whenever I open the keyboard, it freezes for a couple of seconds before I am able to type.
Usually when I open the keyboard, the first thing I do is double-tap the uppercase button in the bottom left corner of the keyboard to go directly to lowercase mode.
(It is set default on Uppercase, then 1 tap makes it go to permanently uppercase, second tap makes it go to lowercase, it defaults to uppercase for starting sentences)
However, the keyboard simply freezes for a few seconds whenever I open the keyboard, and often freezes for a second or two when clicking the uppercase/lowercase button.
I have tried turning off the phone and it did not solve this problem.
Is there any solution? The storage of the phone is not outrageously full and the keyboard has worked fine with it more full than it currently is. The phone doesn't need any updates or anything, has no physical damage to it, and no viruses or anything on it.
Any solutions? This problem is really inconvenient.
