Not a month has passed since the premiere of the new Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra model, and people who decided to buy it are having big problems with the smartphone. There are more and more reports on the web about the inability to use GPS.
In the official Samsung forum theme appearedIn which owners of the new Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra exchange information about problems with the operation of GPS. In some cases, restarting the phone will make the feature work for several hours, then stop working again.
There are no solutions
Although the forum thread already contains 30 pages of entries from frustrated users, the manufacturer in no way addressed information about problems with the operation of its main programs. People who have replaced old Samsung models with the S22 Ultra either test the device themselves or compare its performance with previous models. According to their information, the previous smartphones are still working properly, and the problems only apply to the new S22 Ultra.
Serious security gap. Applicable to nearly a hundred smartphones
Not having an effective GPS in the phone is a big problem for all the people who have to use services like navigation or locating their coordinates on a daily basis. Interestingly, some owners of the S22 Ultra note that when walking, the GPS works, and the problems start only when driving. However, the vast majority indicate that the function does not work regardless of the method of movement.
Given that the thread was created right after the first presentation of the aforementioned model, and Samsung remains silent, users may have cause for serious concern. The March update has already appeared, which did not solve the problem in any way. Many people hope that the fix coming in April will finally fix the GPS problems, but there is no solution yet.
