Smartthings app slow when connecting to sever

In iOS a lot of the time when you use the app it says it’s connecting to the smartthings server, even sometimes trying to connect to something that’s local (albeit i don’t have edge drivers I’m using smartthings wifi) but some things like samsung a/c will probably never go local so my question is if samsung is trying to at least speed up connecting to the smartthings server I don’t understand why it’s so slow, it’s even quicker to use the google home app to control smartthings devices.

It’s something to do with the app not the sever I’m guessing as if you use home assistant it’s much faster to access the smartthings a/c settings
