    This applies to both the built-in Clock app AND the app I put on the phone (Alarm Clock plus) in an attempt to circumvent the issue. My alarms sometimes work just fine, but other times they go off late. Five minutes late, ten minutes, 13 minutes, 30 minutes, 45 minutes - it's completely random (and not just multiples of 5).

    I've had this issue for a long time now. I feel like I ported this issue over from my old Note 4 maybe? I think it was fixed for a short time back then but it reappeared quickly.

    Hopefully I'm not alone and someone knows the answer? Thanks in advance for any assistance!

    What have you done to try to fix this and do you have any other crap apps such as calculators, battery savers, 3rd party screen savers etc on your phone?

    I have the Power Clean app, which I think has some kind of battery saving function on it. The only calculator is the built-in one by Samsung. I'm willing to uninstall Power Clean - I don't use it at all on this newer phone.

    I went ahead and uninstalled it. I figured why wait. No idea if that will fix it or not. Hopefully?

    Regardless, that app does nothing but use battery and memory. Go to settings, battery, and do your maintenance and optimizing from the android built in energy mgt.
    You may want to look around in the settings and see if you notice a rogue app showing in use during the pop-ups.

    To what pop-ups are you referring? I don't really understand what you're referring to here. I don't get any pop-ups while looking at my settings that I know of.

    Your alarms are what I referred to as a pop up.
