Brave freezing and crashing

Brave is slow and it freezes and crashes on Samsung Galaxy A5 2015

Your device seems to be quite long, especially considering that android phones usually don’t get more than 2 years of OS updates. How are other browsers holding up? Regardless I believe brave isn’t well optimized for a device that old and theres probably not much you can do except to upgrade to a newer device

Hi @Fannste94, do you have Lollipop or Marshmallow OS?

Brave Help Center states…

…although Lollipop is version 5, it could still struggle. Maybe even Marshmallow would sputter, I don’t know.

I’m using version 8 (Oreo), and the performance is stellar… so don’t feel you need to upgrade big to run Brave smoothly :slight_smile:

Other browsers are worse, maybe Vivaldi is a little better

I have Android 6.0.1

It could be that it’s close to the base version, but I’m not sure. I just know that with my 8, Brave performs really nicely. Maybe doing a good clean of your mobile might help its efficiency? Check what background apps you having running, etc? Do you tend to use (a lot of) extensions? Run multiple browsers?..

I tried clearing the app data and I also have a system cleaner and it’s the same, the loading bar shows that the page is loaded but the content is still loading

Maybe this could offer some tips?

Are you at this version?

Edit: This may be more helpful than the last, sorry,

I already tried resetting the router and my phone a couple of times it’s not an issue with them, I tried Brave on another Samsung Galaxy 2019 phone with Android 10 and it’s the same, the bar shows that the page is loaded but the content (images and videos) are still loading, you can try testing Opera and Vivaldi to see how they work

Is this sluggish loading with every site, or only some?

I ask because maybe it’s your Shield settings?


Especially if fingerprinting is set to strict for many/ all sites…

…or you have other strict settings in the Shield…?

Every site and it happens even with the Shield disabled

I see.

I think Support or someone more knowledgable with Android than I will join in on this discssion to further assist you @Fannste94.

I don’t think you having version 6 is the problem, but I really don’t know because you’ve no issues running Vivaldi and Opera…

I’m curious to know what could be the reason for your issue. Hopefully we won’t have to wait too long :slight_smile:

Yes i have also the same problem
