    I have a brand new Galaxy S8, and when I enter settings, and use the internal settings-search function to find a specific setting, it takes an annoyingly long time. For example, if I enter the letters "NOTI", then the thinking circle starts to spin, and it takes somewhere around 2 seconds before I get a list of all the settings with the letters NOTI. (check attached screenshot to see what I mean)

    At first I thought it took so long because the phone has to look through the whole storage space and search for specific files, but when I use a file-manager-app, like My Files, and enter the letters "NOTI", then I get immediate results the instance I enter each new letter.

    I've talked to some people who claim that this delay in settings-search is not on their phones, which makes me suspect that maybe it's so slow because I have enabled a specific search setting?

    This is only a slight annoyance and the phone works perfect otherwise, but I would still love to figure out what is the cause.

    Welcome to Android Central! Moved to the S8 forum for more specific traffic.

    Does this also happen in Safe Mode? https://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-34283
