If you own a Samsung Galaxy S20, you already know that its flagship specifications and design aren’t cheap. You’ve most likely already bought one of the finest Galaxy S20 cases, as well as a screen protector.
But hold for a second, do you know how to turn your Samsung Galaxy S20 Off? It may appear straightforward, but it isn’t quite that simple.
Samsung’s most recent phones disguise its power options behind the Bixby button, making it difficult to turn off your phone unless you know how. You can learn to turn your Samsung Galaxy S20 Off without bringing Bixby every time, with this “How To” guide.
The power button on the Galaxy S20 is a side key, but a long press brings up Samsung’s voice assistant “Bixby”, by default. So, what’s the best way to turn off your phone without accessing Bixby? This can be accomplished in one of three ways:
Use of the Notification Bar
The notification bar provides a quick and easy method to switch your phone off.
- To access the notification tray, swipe down from the top of your phone’s screen.
- In the upper right corner, you should notice a power button symbol.
- To access your power menu, tap that icon.
- Press the Power Off icon.
Push the buttons at the same time.
The second method for turning off your phone is also simple and quick. To enter the Power Menu, just hold down the Power and Volume Down keys at the same time, then select Power Off.
Tweak the Bixby Button
Tweaking your side key function so it doesn’t automatically activate Bixby is the third and final option to turn off your phone.
It will be easier for you to turn off your phone in the future as a result of this.
Below are the following steps to do the same:
- Navigate to the Settings.
- Select Advanced Features.
- Tap Side Key on the next screen.
- Select Power Off Menu from the list of options for what a long-press (press and hold) of the side key performs.
You’ll see the Power Off menu anytime you long-press the side key from now on, and you may pick Power Off to turn off your device.
Note: If you remap the side key, Bixby will be disabled, so keep that in mind if you use Samsung’s voice assistant.
It’s worth spending the time to tweak your phone’s Bixby key, especially if you never use Samsung’s voice assistant, however, the other two methods work just as well for a quick fix.
