Here’s how to fix the screen freezing bug on your Galaxy Note 5

So you’ve just gotten your hands on a shiny new Galaxy Note 5, only to find that its gorgeous 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display continuously freezes on you and stops responding. Pretty frustrating, huh? Yeah, we think so, too. Thankfully, there’s a super-easy fix that prevents the freezing from occurring repeatedly.

Here’s what to do:

  1. Turn off your Note 5 by holding the Power button and selecting Power Off from the on-screen menu.
  2. Hold the Power, Volume Up and Home buttons simultaneously until the Android mascot appears on the screen.
  3. A recovery menu should appear. Using the Volume Down button, highlight the option entitled ‘Wipe Cache Partition’, and click the Power button to select it.
  4. Press the Power button again to reboot the system.

After following the steps above, you should find that your Note 5’s display does not freeze anymore as you’ve wiped the cache that was causing it malfunction in the first place.
