How to disable Bixby on the Samsung Galaxy A33 5G


The Samsung Galaxy A33 5G is a good value-for-money smartphone for those with a budget of around $250. You get a phone that offers a 90Hz AMOLED display, a 48-megapixel quad-cameras, a 5,000mAh battery, and an IP68 rating for dust and water resistance. It comes with Bixby digital assistant which will help you get various things done in a convenient and fast manner. Even though Bixby is quite a capable assistant, it is not as good as Google’s own offering Google Assistant. This is the reason you may be thinking about ditching it completely.

In this tutorial, we will cover how you can remove the Bixby trigger from the side key as well as completely disable the wakeup command on your Galaxy A33 5G. So without further ado, let’s get started.
