The Google Play Store (process com.android.vending) application has stopped unexpectedly

earlier i have resolved this error on a Samsung galaxy S3 by resetting app preferences. but this method didn’t worked on this phone. (works on android 4.0 & above versions)


Play Store (process com.android.vending)

Other methods i have tried, that you can also try.

  1. Cleared play store & google frame work app data & cache.
  2. Switched off phone, removed battery for one minute & turn on phone again.
  3. Performed a factory reset on this phone but didn’t resolved the issue.
  4. Removed google account and re entered details. didn’t worked
  5. Uninstall play store updates, & manually download play store app V4.4 by clicking following link,

Download Link

Once downloaded either copy in your phone storage/memory card  & install it, or directly download on your phone.
and after that try to open play store app, this method worked for me.
give it a try & problem should be fixed.
