When Should You Reset Your Galaxy Buds?

Apple has been Apple’s primary competitor in the mobile phone market. It was in the fourth quarter of 2020 that Apple outsold Samsung for global phone sales. This is the first time in six years. Samsung regained first place in the first quarter of 2021.

It is not easy to go toe-to-toe with the largest tech companies. Samsung must produce quality products that match Apple’s range while still catering to their target market. Despite being technologically advanced, Samsung’s products still have flaws and errors.

These issues are also applicable to the Samsung Galaxy Buds. The problems experienced by each product may be different, but they may all fall within one of these categories:

Bluetooth connection problems: This could include pairing issues and the inability of your Bluetooth earbuds to be found via Bluetooth.

Problems with battery charging: Common issues include batteries not charging correctly or significant differences in the battery strength between earpieces.

Sound quality: Sound quality may be poor, have echoes/reverberations, or have no sound at all.

These problems may be caused by software bugs or hardware issues. This is where restart and factory reset functions are helpful.

The Galaxy Buds can be reset or restarted to give users a fresh start. All functions are disabled, even those that cause errors. All of the Buds’ settings and memory, including past connections, are deleted. This is like giving users a new sheet of paper after doodling on the previous one.
