I have a weird problem with my Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone. Its clock is almost 2 minutes ahead of a computer’s time (phone says 10:20:XX when computer says 10:18:XX) !
This is especially disturbing when I get meeting reminders almost 2 minutes apart on my phone vs my computer and sometimes a reply to my text message seemed to be received before I sent the question according to the text message displayed order...
My employer gave me this Android smartphone back in September 2013. I have compared with a colleague that has the exact same model (Galaxy S4) with the exact same “company carrier deal” (it’s with Bell, one of the top 3 biggest carriers in Canada, we’re both in Montreal, Quebec, Canada) and his smartphone does not have this problem.
I do restart my smartphone about once a day and it does not solve the problem.
My smartphone is not rooted and I do not intend to root it since it is a job smartphone.
The smartphone generally works well with only an occasional lag and it has no visible physical damage. I only dropped it maybe 2-3 times in 2.5 years and it was always from a small height. I am careful with it. I do have a small protection case that protects against small falls.
I have no idea what causes this problem to persist even after restart and last for days (or maybe even weeks, it has been a while).
I am usually good with technology, but I have never seen this.
Has my smartphone stopped synchronizing its internal clock with the network clock? How do we force a network clock synchronization?
Do you have any idea why this is happening?
Is there any way to fix this?
I hope you will be able to help.
