How to switch off and restart your Samsung Galaxy S22: Multiple alternatives to Power button

Samsung users have been using the switch-off feature by simply pressing and holding down the power button. However, recent Galaxy S-series devices have seen a small yet noticeable change as they’ve stopped supporting the traditional feature of “press and hold the power button to switch off”.

Samsung has launched the Galaxy S22 series devices and as with every new smartphone, there are many changes that users don’t immediately understand. In the case of the Samsung Galaxy S22, one of those features is the way to switch it off. By default, pressing and holding down the power button will open Samsung’s virtual assistant – Bixby, while Samsung will refer to the button as the side key instead of the power button. Interestingly, Samsung has provided four ways of switching off the Galaxy S22 smartphone.
