For your info
Doing anything on your Android phone is using an App aka short for Application program/ software

When you text..that's an app
Use the camera ... App
Web search .. YEP Google search engine app
PHONE CALL ... YEP phone app

And you can replace each one with one you choose to download and install, or have them replaced / altered when the phone is hacked

You can even install an HDR camera app to take higher definition photos, takes multiple images and combines them
{Good for still photo scenery} helps make the cactus needles pop out in the picture, optics is where phones suffer versus a Canon or Sony , but they sure are handy, one device that does so much


I can explain it to you.
But I Can Not understand it for you !

I cleared it ... restarted it, didn't help. Shut it down completely, left it off for an hour. Turned it on, back to normal ... guess it wasn't feeling perky today.

Thanks for all the advice - everyone.

Mr.W - Yes, I know - all are apps - but I only use what came on the phone - I don't add any, don't download any, and I don't sync with any other devices. Just use it minimally - some web searches ... don't bank on it, don't open any messages I don't know the person, don't even answer it often, I let it go to message and call back if I know the person. It's more a keep in touch and an emergency device. I still use my laptop for every thing, generally.

Those are the kind of issues that drive me to add redundancy, in this case it would be adding an alternative browser. Hate to get stuck somewhere, needing data, and your "app" won't work.

I suspect the problem was with your cellular carrier not the phone.
This I know... I"m way happier with my Samsungs over the years than I ever would be with an IOS device..

For example. Hotspotting can be a real pain with IOS super easy with Android.


Home was where I park it. but alas the.

Also, you might have received a system update from Samsung; my A20e's just got an "Android 11 - One UI 3 upgrade" which updated my Google app as well as many others.
