    After about an hour after the update the phone is much smoother. I still have problems with a bixby routine that when I open the the gallery app it will change the resolution to WQHD as programmed but when I close the app it is supposed to go back to the prior setting of 120hz FHD mode but it does not.

      Hi Jim, thanks for the comment. Have you tried updating all the Bixby apps from the Galaxy Store, if its not on auto-updates already? Usually after the update you would need to disable and enable the routine. Or, if that doesn’t work, simply remove the routine entirely and add it again.
