Wondering how to turn off your Samsung Galaxy S22? It’s not as intuitive of a process as you might hope. Gone are the days of simply turning your phone off with the power button alone, since most voice assistants like Google Assistant and Siri are tied to it. But don’t worry, it’s a really easy process.

Turning off — or even rebooting — your phone is an essential function. Like most electronics, it can be beneficial to power down your device from time to time. However, the power button on most phones nowadays won’t actually turn off your device with a long press. You’ll either put your phone to sleep if you don’t hold it long enough, or you’ll more likely activate the useful but sometimes pesky voice assistants. In the Galaxy S22’s case, it’s the ever-annoying Bixby.

The default setting on the Samsung Galaxy S22 requires you to power down the device using one of two sequences. Here in this guide, we will detail those two options available, which, out of the box, don’t require you to change any settings.
