How to disable galaxy store (Basic guide)

You’re sick and tired of the galaxy store on your samsung phone, maybe the app is draining your phobe battery and you’re not happy with that.

Since you have the google play store on your samsung phone, you can do away with the Galaxy store though the app is very much essential to update inbuilt apps like the calculator app, calendar app, file app, and other samsung preinstalled apps.

In general I don’t entirely recommend disabling the Samsung Galaxy store cause you will need the for your app updates.

As you’re looking for how to disable galaxy store from your samsung phone, let’s proceed to that.

How to disable galaxy store from samsung phone

To disable galaxy store from your samsung phone, you have to open your settings app on your samsung phone.

On opening the settings app, scroll down to apps and tap to open. Search for galaxy store and open the app.

By default samsung will not allow you to disable the galaxy store until you first uninstall updates from the app. Kindly tap on the hamburger menu located at the top right corner of your screen and you will see uninstall updates just like on the picture below.

Tap on the disable button, accept the warning notice, finally the galaxy store will be disabled from your samsung phone.

If you didn’t uninstall updates before trying to disable the galaxy store, you will noticed that you won’t be able to tap or click on the disable button. 

You can only disable galaxy store by first uninstalling the app updates, and you’re good to go.

I will still insist not to disable the galaxy store from your samsung phone cause you will have a hard time updating your samsung default apps like the file app, calculator app, camera app, etc.

All these default apps can’t be updated via the Google play store cause they can’t be seen in the Google play store.

This is how to disable galaxy store from your samsung phone.

I prefer you to turn off galaxy store app than to disable the apps, and if you are a novice, this is how to go about it.

If your samsung galaxy store app is using or consuming battery on your samsung phone, I recommend you doing these followings;

1. Putting the app to a deep sleep mode

If your samsung galaxy store app is using your phone battery a lot, instead of disabling the app I recommend you to put the app to a deep sleeping apps mode.

I recommend you to put the galaxy store app to a deep sleep on your samsung phone, and I have been using it.

Remember that deep sleeping apps restrict the app from running in a phone background, and even if you open the app in your phone, upon closing the app, it will still go back to a deep sleeping apps mode.

If you put the Samsung Galaxy store to a deep sleeping mode, it won’t run in your phone background if you’re not using the app, and when you’re done using the galaxy store app, it will move back to a deep sleeping apps mode.

This prevents the Galaxy store app from using your samsung phone battery because the galaxy store app is not running in the background.

So if you’re looking how to disable galaxy store because you’re pissed off of your galaxy store app using your battery a lot, instead of going ahead to disable galaxy store app, kindly put the app to a deep sleeping apps mode.

2. Putting the galaxy store to a sleeping apps mode

Another way to limit the galaxy store app from draining your phone battery is by putting the galaxy store to a sleeping apps mode.

This is quite different from the deep sleeping apps mode, but it really works and very good especially if you don’t fancy putting the galaxy store app to a deep sleeping apps mode.

Putting the galaxy store app to a sleeping apps mode will restrict the app from running in your phone background, but immediately you opened the app it will start to run in the background.

This is one major difference between sleeping apps and deep sleeping apps mode on samsung phone.

Apps will start to run in the background immediately you opened the app in sleeping apps mode, but in deep sleeping apps mode, the app will return back to the mode or restricted from running in the background immediately you closed the app.

So in this mode, all you need to do is to put the app to sleeping apps mode immediately you’re done using the galaxy store on your samsung phone. This will prevent the galaxy store from using your phone battery when not in use.

Putting the app to sleeping apps mode will help stop the Samsung Galaxy store app from using your phone battery a lot.
