Very frequently, I’m unable to access my settings menu due to it freezing. when going to the settings through a shortcut or through the notification drop down (pull the notification bar down, and selecting the gear), the screen will go black, but it will remain that way.
I have not found a consistent way to access the settings application when this occurs. tapping the screen repeatedly will eventually lead to the Android prompt asking whether I would like to wait for the app to respond or to kill the application. Killing the application doesn’t always resolve the issue.
I have also tried to kill the application by selecting the recent applications list and killing the settings application. This also does not resolve the issue.
The only way i can access the settings when this occurs is by repeatedly doing both methods of killing the setting menu until it eventually works.
Is this a known issue?
Is there a way to resolve this?
I’ve not done any manual OS updates.
