Samsung Galaxy S10 users are reporting issues with individual applications hanging and requiring a forced closing of apps, apps locking up the handset, and the phone itself requiring a restart in some circumstances.

SamMobile reports:The most common complaint going around right now is a freezing issue with third-party apps.
