I've run into an issue with my S10+ that I'm quite sure didn't happen with my S8 and I can't find how to fix it. The issue is the back button seems to work universally instead of per app. The problem I'm having is one of the apps I'm using doesn't seem to have proper navigation to go back to the home screen so I press back to try to go back a page but instead it backs me out of the app. Even closing the app and reopening it doesn't work because when I reopen it it's on the same page I can't get out of.

Is there any way to fix this? I've noticed it with other app too, instead of taking me back to whatever was previous in my app it goes back to where I was which is generally the home screen. Super annoying.
That may be the apps themselves. I am currently browsing in Edge on my 10+ and using the back button and it just takes me back one page and not out of the app. I have used the back button in other apps as well.

Selling my S10 on Swappa, but I might get an S10e eventually when they start to drop in price a bit more.
Really like the size and traditional fingerprint reader on it, I just have to be a bit more frugal for the time being.

Possibly my favorite thing about the S10’s is just how well they work with the Galaxy Buds. There’s no noticeable audio lag with videos to me on YouTube or videos I download. My older Android has slightly noticeable lag on YouTube and some other videos, but it’s still watchable, but the lag is strong enough on my iPhone that I rather use wired headphones with it. With any luck future patches will improve it even more, but for now I’ll definitely miss that until I get another Samsung phone.

I'm guessing you aren't in the UK as you could just send it back for a refund within 14 days.

Can't imagine dropping dollar on something like this and just selling it 10 days later.

Requested the Galaxy Buds on 03/12/19 and still haven't heard anything from then. No approval or rejection information. No E-Mail and nothing in the Samsung Members app.
Anyone else still in limbo like me? The end of the application period is nearing and I'll be out of the country starting this Thursday... I'll be pissed if they wait until the last second to reject my request and I'm unable to do anything about it because I'm traveling the other side of the world...

Get on live chat with them and get them to provide you with the email of the promotions team.

Interesting idea on the fingerprint scanner. Each scan is actually 16 different scans of your print, so by adding the same finger/thumb 2 or 3 times, its just overkill.

Instead he suggests and demos just using one "scan" to get 8 scans of the left thumb and 8 of the right and it unlocks at exactly the same speed.

For people that were having issues with the fingerprint sensor (like me), the more scans of the same finger you have the higher the likelihood of it unlocking when you need it to.

I probably could send it back for a refund, but I doubt I'd still be able to keep the free Galaxy Buds or do the great trade-in deal on my iPhone 8.

Even if I get like $100 off msrp for it by selling it, I'll still come out a little on top.

Guys, do you have any recommended rugged case that protects the screen as well? I need something for my hiking and beach time. Rest of the time I'm using the phone caseless.

Anyone know why Always On Display defaults to not actually be always on? I never had burn in issues with my s7 or s8 but it's a little concerning that the default is to only show it for 30 secs after a tap.
