    I just traded in two s9s for s22s, and they both are having issues with USB connectivity.

    The first issue has to do with connecting my car to Android Auto, which worked perfectly fine on my previous phone. Sometimes it works, and then suddenly it doesn't. I get an error message saying to replace the USB cord, but once I start getting that message, no USB cord will work. At first when this began to happen, I tried rebooting the phone and then it would work. The last time it happened, even rebooting didn't fix it, but then I uninstalled the Android Auto app, reinstalled it, re-booted and then it worked with no issues.

    The second issue has to do with using a USB dongle to plug in wired headphones. Again, it sometimes works and sometimes cuts in and out. Rebooting will make it work for a while, but then it goes on the blink again.

    To repeat, I'm having these issues with both phones and multiple USB cords, all of which are high quality.

    The fact that a reboot or a reinstall of software temporarily solves the issues, would indicate to me that this is a software, not a hardware issue.

    Anyone else experiencing this? Is it an S22 problem, or does this happen on other phones with Android 12?

    I just had some flakiness today with Android for the first time, cutting in and out. Unplugging and re-plugging the USB cable fixed my issue.

    I don't personally have Android Auto so I can't speak either way, but I've heard Android 12 in general is a little weird with Android Auto. You'd think they'd have fixed all these bugs by now.

    No issues with my s22 ultra. Works with my Toyota Highlander 2020 fine.

    It's a 2016 Chevy Spark. And yes, I've tried the Samsung supplied USB cord.

    Just throwing this out....if you have more than one USB port in the vehicle; give it a try. I have approx. 5 or 6 USB ports in my trucks and one of the ports, in one of the trucks, under the center console will not work with my plug in 64gb USB loaded with music, all other ports will. However, this port worked ok with AA last year when I used it last.

    Mine is a 2021 Toyota Prius XLE AWD-E and I'm using a Samsung cable. I think part of the issue is the USB protection flap on my case pushing against the USB connector. With a flapless case, it's better but problem still intermittently appears.

    I had this problem with my Note 20U and is one of the reasons that I upgraded to the S22U. I even took my N20U to a Youbreakifix shop and they couldn't find an issue with either the port or cable I was using. So far, no problems at all with the S22U, but I'm distressed that you've been having the identical problem with the new phone.

    Had this issue in both my vehicles switched to a cable that is
    USB-IF CERTIFIED: Compliant with USB 3.1 Gen 2; backwards compatible to USB 3.0 and 2.0;

    No issues with either vehicle

    I'm having USB issues with my S22 Ultra. If I use Dex with a USB hub it will keep flickering in the notification section. I have to keep unplugging and plugging the USB back in again. It better not be the port. I've heard similar horror stories about previous Notes and Galaxy phone having the same issue. For some reason the USB C is very fragile... Even after unplugging from the USB port tonight it was still flickering about unsupported USB... Had to restart the phone...

    I have a 2019 Chevy Sonic and have to use a short USB cable for Android Auto to work. A longer cable just doesn't work. I've never figured out why since the longer cable is newer and honestly not that long. I just figured it was a Chevy issue as much as an Android Auto one.

    How long is the long cable? If it's more than 3 m it's actually too long.

    I had the issue last week after using a new USB C (USB 3.1 Gen 2)cable to connect to my 2019 Chevy Colorado. Tried an older cable and had the same issue. A restart of the S22 solved the issue and has not returned. Initially thought the new cable was bad which was why I tried the older cable. (shrugs shoulders)

    It's about 2 ft long.

    Still having the same issue even with debugging enabled for USB. I have to keep restarting the phone. This shouldn't be a issue for a new phone. It's insane. And I use the same USB C hub for my Note 10+. Never had this issue before... Now it's a daily issue with the S22 Ultra. And it's a known issue from what I been reading for the S22 Ultra
