  4. Then, tap Storage;
  5. Hit the option that says Clear cache;
  6. Tap Clear data and then tap OK.
  • After this, try to open the app and see if the error still shows up and if it does, then move on to the next step.
    Even more, let me remind you that third-party apps can cause pre-installed apps to crash or act crazy. So, my advice is to immediately enter your Galaxy S8 in safe mode and see if the error persists:
  1. Turn the device off;
  2. Press and hold the Power key past the model name screen;
  3. When Samsung shows up, release the Power key;
  4. Immediately after releasing the Power key, press and hold the Volume down key;
  5. Continue to hold the Volume down key until the device finishes restarting;
  6. Safe mode will display in the bottom left corner of the screen;
  7. Release the Volume down key when you see Safe Mode.
  • Let’s say that the Galaxy S8 Buzzing Sound issue doesn’t show when the phone is in this mode, so it’s confirmed that one or some of the apps are causing it. Uninstall apps that might be causing this problem, the ones that you have recently installed and so on;
  • Haven’t any of these things made any difference? Then, you have no choice but to bring the phone back to its factory default settings and get a fresh start.
