What if my Galaxy S10 Stuck on Samsung Logo? How to Fix the Bootloop Issue?

Samsung Galaxy S10 lineup launched recently, and while the majority of users are more than happy with their new acquisition, some others complain about several Galaxy S10 issues. Among these bugs, one of them is very annoying, and it is common to many Android smartphones. We’re talking about the bootloop issue. In the case your Galaxy S10 stuck on Samsung logo, keep on reading because I will show you some quick methods to fix it.

A bootloop issue is usually appearing due to a software-related glitch or a conflict caused by a third-party application that corrupts the firmware. Luckily, all these problems are fixable.

Force restart

Commonly, a force restart solves any software-related glitch. To fix the bootloop issue, you can also try performing a force reboot on your Samsung Galaxy S10 smartphone. To do that operation follow the next straightforward steps:

  • Press and hold the Power key and Volume Down button for about 10 seconds
  • Once the boot cycle initiates, release the keys
  • Wait a few seconds until the Maintenance Boot Menu appears on screen
  • Select Normal Boot and allow the smartphone to restart

In case the Maintenence Boot Menu does not pop up, it means that your device is not having such a menu. If so, just permit your smartphone to reboot after performing the first two steps from the list above.

Shut down your Galaxy S10 smartphone

Sometimes, all you have to do is to turn off your device to fix issues. In the case of a Galaxy S10 stuck on Samsung logo, shutting down your smartphone might be the solution.

But since you’re experiencing a bootloop issue on your device, pressing and holding the Power button until the phone turns off might not work. However, you should try it. If it’s not working, wait until the battery drains so that the smartphone shuts down itself.

As you may already know, new Galaxy devices don’t come with removable batteries so it might take a while until your Galaxy S10 smartphone turns off as it remains without power.

Once the battery drained and your device is shut down, connect it to the charger without turning it on. Allow the smartphone to charge for about 30 minutes and then turn it on to see if the issue has been fixed.

Wipe cache partition or factory reset your phone

If your Galaxy S10 stuck on Samsung logo, something known as a bootloop issue, you could fix that by performing a wipe cache partition or factory reset operation. However, since the latter method would delete all your data, we recommend you to try the wipe cache partition solution at first.

  • Press and hold both the Volume Up and Bixby buttons for a couple of seconds
  • Press and hold the Power key without releasing the first two
