Samsung is undoubtedly the world’s most popular and leading smartphone manufacturer. It offers a wide range of products in the market – Samsung is currently the only company that makes smartphone models for every budget.
You will find Samsung models for every price range. If we talk about the mid-range series of Samsung smartphones like the A-Series, M-series, F-series, they have all features that users needs and come with Samsung’s own One UI interface.
However, the problem with Samsung’s low or mid-end smartphones is that they come with lock screen services that display ads on the lock screen. Samsung shows ads on the lock screen to cover up the cost of the device that was made available at affordable price tags.
For example, if you are using a Samsung Galaxy A series or M Series smartphone, Samsung enables Glance Lock screen service to show you ads on the lock screen. Even though the lock screen ads don’t irritate you, they will surely drain your battery life.

Other Ways to Remove Ads on Android?
Usually, Ads don’t appear everywhere on Android; they mostly appear on the apps you use. You can remove ads from apps by purchasing the premium version.
However, if you don’t want to purchase the premium version of apps, you can set up AdGuard DNS on your Android smartphone. AdGuard DNS won’t remove all ads from your Android device, but it will indeed remove the most annoying one.
Alternatively, you can use VPN apps for Android to get rid of ads from websites and apps. However, do note that not every VPN app comes with an ad-blocking functionality. So, read the app store description of a VPN before installing a VPN app.
Samsung shows ads only on low to mid-end devices. If you use a high-end Samsung device, you won’t see ads on the lock screen. I hope this article helped you! Please share it with your friends also. If you have any doubts related to this, let us know in the comment box below.
