The truth is that we have discussed various problems encountered by Samsung Galaxy S7 owners but we’re still getting complaints regarding more and more issues and our journey continues. Today I want to tell you more about the “Unfortunately, clipboardUIservice has stopped” error that bugs so many Galaxy S7 owners all over the world.

Are you one of them as well? Then, you already know that when you go to write a text and tap and hold the screen with your finger to bring up the options to ‘Paste’ and ‘Clipboard’ (which holds all your copied items), Clipboard simply fails when selected and gives you this error message.

At the same time, there are plenty of other users who don’t see this message, but their story is no different: their device will not let them paste any text from your clipboard into anything. This includes text messaging and messenger, as well as other apps, so what can you do to solve the situation?

These solutions are available for both cases, therefore keep on reading:
