    Angry Freezing Issue (Samsung Galaxy Ring/Andriod 4.1.2)

    Most of the time, my phone is fine. But once every couple days, it randomly freezes. The screen will be off, and I'll go to check something, but it won't come on. I know it's still on because the notification light will still be blinking. My only option to get it back on is to turn it off completely and turn it back on or to remove the battery and turn it back on. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Have you tried rebooting into recovery and clearing the phone's cache?

    Try power off, and to reboot, hold power and volume up and release when you see Samsung title.

    When you get in you want to go to wipe cache partition. Volume button to navigate and power or home to accept.
