Samsung One UI 2.0 Beta Locks Samsung Galaxy S10 Devices

Recently, Samsung rolled out Android 10 Beta with One UI 2.0 Beta atop of it to Samsung Galaxy S10 models. As it seems, the update is entirely incompatible with the S10 smartphones. As many users reported, the One UI 2.0 Beta update lock Samsung Galaxy S10 devices.

But that’s not all because the recent update also crashes the Remote Unlock feature. Without it, users won’t be capable of remotely control their smartphones in case they lost their devices or remained locked out.

Users have reported all these issues over the Internet. At the moment, Samsung did not come up with an answer or promise for a new Beta that fixes these bugs. All we have to do now is wait for a reply from the South Korean company. However, if you want to fix these problems, you will have only two solutions – a factory reset and/or downgrade to Android 9 Pie.
