How to Fix or Solve a Problem for the Purpose of Recovery Is your SAMSUNG GALAXY A10E stuck, frozen, or bricked because it is hanging, not responding, or malfunctioning?

Essentially, we require more RAM to run multitasking programs, but this phone only has 2 GB of RAM available. However, it is still capable of running some apps without difficulty.

Many applications from the Google Play Store, including Facebook, Whatsapp, Telegram, Viber, and Skype, are installed on the device’s internal memory.

Line Messenger, WeChat, and a few additional apps are available.

Installing new or unpopular applications without first reading user reviews is not recommended because some of them may contain viruses or malware that can cause problems with our SAMSUNG GALAXY A10E (SM-A102U), such as hanging, getting stuck, bricking, freezing, or the LCD touch screen not responding.

Most of the time, malicious apps will not receive the Verified by Play Protect information.

We must attempt to erase temporary files and caches by performing a soft reset or rebooting the computer.

Please try to download a reputable free antivirus from the Google Play Store, such as AVAST or NORTON, once the phone has been restored to normal operation or can start correctly.

This antivirus will scan all installed applications and provide recommendations on how to use the software safely.

Please do a hard reset or master format as described below if the difficulties persist.

Because a hard reset will delete all of our vital files, we must make a backup of everything before executing a hard reset.

After completing the hard reset, all accounts, including Samsung accounts and Google accounts, will be deleted or removed from the SAMSUNG GALAXY A10E.

We strongly advise you not to install any APK files from an unknown source because it is quite easy for our phone to become infected with malware.
