Samsung launched the Galaxy S20 FE as a lite version for its S20 lineup but includes premium features such Super AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate and HDR 10+ support, Snapdragon 865 processor, and more. The smartphone also comes with stereo speakers along with Dolby Atmos support.
Recently, some of the users of Galaxy S20 FE have reported an issue with the audio system of the phone. In contrast to the problem, a user states that while playing any media with Instagram, Spotify, Netflix, or any other source, the audio of the device has suddenly decreased and it is barely audible.
The users tried changing different audio settings on their device and the sound remains unchanged. A user found that this problem is fixed after restarting the device but after some time the sound was again decreased. This shows that there is a software issue in the device that causes the audio to get automatically reduced. After trying many solutions they have posted this matter on the companies community page.
Previously, the users of Galaxy S20 FE massively reported facing touch screen issues on their smartphones, this includes ‘ghost touches’ on the corner of the display and there were screen sensitivity issues. Although, Samsung acknowledged this problem and also provided several updates to fix it but they’re still facing some touch-related problems.
Until now the company has not said anything on the audio matter and we hope that it will provide a considerable solution to this problem as well. If you are also facing such audio issues with your Galaxy S20 FE then let us know in the comments below.
Big security issue: You can easily break security of any Samsung Galaxy device
Samsung always keeps security as a priority when it comes to Galaxy devices. Meanwhile, there are still some issues from the Android side, which are still compromising security. In a recent development, our team member found a YouTube video, showing that you can destroy any Samsung device’s security in just a minute, is it an issue?
A YouTube channel posted plenty of videos guiding users on how they can factory reset their Galaxy device in case of forgetting the password, pin, or pattern. Since a manual reset stops you to use your device without logging in with the same Google account the phone had before, the YouTuber even bypassed FRP.
The video begins with a short introduction on breaking any form of security lock on all Galaxy devices. Seeing this video, we followed the same steps and found that the method is accurately working and we were able to factory reset Galaxy devices, including:
- Galaxy Z Fold 4
- Galaxy Z Flip 4
- Galaxy S22 Ultra
- Galaxy Z Fold 3
- Galaxy S21 and S21 FE
- Galaxy M31 and A30s
As shown in the video, you can break any Galaxy device’s lock (password, PIN or pattern) by resetting manually. To do so, just plug in the USB and connect it to a PC, and press all three physical buttons simultaneously. As soon as your device turns off, leave the volume down button, followed by the power button a few seconds later.
Within seconds, you will be able to access the recovery mode of Android, letting you install the firmware manually, and wipe system data as well as cache. Using the Wipe data/factory reset option, you can hard reset any Galaxy device, while the FRP can also be bypassed with a handful of head-scratching steps.
I shocked seeing Samsung Knox also validated installation of a third-party root access apps!
While this method would not leave any kind of personal data or account logged in in the Galaxy device, but, you won’t be able to trace it through services like Find My Mobile. In case of misplacement or theft incidents, anyone can get access to use your Galaxy device as a first-hand user.
Users’ personal data won’t be accessible by gaining access to factory reset and FRP bypass methods. Still, we are disappointed to see that the user eventually used Samsung’s setup wizard as concluding the method of getting complete access to the Galaxy device.
Samsung should look into the matter and fix the issue/bugs that provide unauthorized access, destroying security promises. The company should also work with Google to make the FRP and factory reset more reliable as some are still compromising users’ privacy.
Bluetooth issues emerge in stable Samsung One UI 5.0, fix coming soon!
Samsung widely rolled out the Android 13-based One UI 5.0 stable update for Galaxy S22 series users earlier this week. The new software obviously brings a bunch of new features. But customers are also facing Bluetooth issues on the One UI 5.0 version.
There are many user reports on the Samsung Members Community that suggets that Galaxy S22 smartphones are not able to connect to their smartwatches or buds through Bluetooth after updating to the One UI 5.0 update.
The problem not only occurs while using third-party Bluetooth or Wearable devices but customers are also encountering issues when conning the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4. Some users have also said that the Bluetooth of their phone is causing problems even when connecting to a car.
However, it seems that Samsung will shortly fix these Bluetooth issues of One UI 5.0 software as the related community in charge has informed that the issue is known and the company is giving its best to fix it. The in charge also revealed that users will soon get a software update that will resolve the problem.
The moderator further told that if customers are facing any inconvenience in using Bluetooth right away, they can take their phone to the nearest service center even before the update.
A large number of users have reported this problem on various platforms. Bluetooth is very common nowadays as it is the only way to connect any smartwatch, buds, speaker, or other Bluetooth-enabled devices. Therefore, the problem is troubling customers a lot.
The Galaxy S22 series phones are the top flagship models of Samsung and issues like this can highly degrade the users’ experience. It’s understandable that One UI 5.0 is completely new if the problem was known already, the company should have worked more before releasing the stable version. Hope the issue will soon get a fix!
Samsung Galaxy Watch connectivity issue emerges with Wearable app in One UI 5.0 Beta [Updated]
Updates are added at the bottom…
Samsung’s Galaxy Wearable is an application that connects your Galaxy Watch and Galaxy Buds to your smartphone so that you can manage and monitor your wearable device through your phone. However, many Galaxy wearable app users are facing connectivity problems after installing One UI 5.0 Beta builds.
Android 13 is now official for Pixel and some other brands’ smartphones. But Samsung is still running the Android 13-based One UI 5.0 Beta program for eligible Galaxy device owners. This upgrade brings a handful of new features and improvements over the previous version but such issues are highly affecting users’ experience.
In the recent few days, various Samsung Galaxy Wearable app customers have reached the Samsung Members community to report that the application is not working properly. According to the reports, users are not able to connect their wearable devices to their phones as the connections and disconnections are being repeated over and over again.
Once disconnected and try to connect it again, it works normally for some seconds. But later an error occurs that says the wearable cannot be connected. Well, this issue is arising in both Galaxy Watch and Galaxy Buds for their respective users.
It is worth mentioning that the Galaxy Wearable connectivity issue is appearing after switching to the One UI 5.0 Beta version on either Galaxy S22, Galaxy S21, Galaxy S20, or Galaxy A52 devices. And, the reason behind this is not clear yet.
On the other hand, the Samsung community’s beta operation manager has responded to users’ concerns. But he did not mention the reason due to which this problem is happening nor he has told how it can be fixed or when it will be fixed.
Well, this is not the first problem that One UI 5.0 beta testers are reporting, earlier users also told about many other problems such as home crashing, bad animation, object eraser not working, screen blackening, and more.
Moving on, Samsung’s Android 13-based One UI 5.0 builds are currently in the beta phase, which means there is no guarantee for its stability so you can not blame the manufacturers for such issues. The company is continuously working on improving the One UI software and as it has resolved many old One UI issues, it will continue to do so.
It is possible that Samsung will bring a fix for this issue in the next beta or stable One UI 5.0 update. The problem seems annoying for the users but customers might have to compromise with the Galaxy Wearable app features and functions until the next One UI 5.0 builds will release.
Furthermore, currently, there’s no plan for Samsung’s next step. Meanwhile, the stable One UI 5.0 will unveil at Samsung Developer Conference which will happen on October 12. Possibly, the company could also start the stable version rollout on the same day, at least for Galaxy S22 series phones.
And, it is expected that the Korean company will solve all the major and minor issues that users are currently facing on the beta builds through the stable release. In addition, it will further introduce new features and enhancements to the devices.
Update 2: Oct. 08
Samsung seeded the fourth One UI 5.0 Beta update for the Galaxy S22 series devices. The changelog didn’t specifically mention bug fixes for Galaxy Watch connectivity issues and Galaxy Wearable app crashing. As result, consumers are still facing connectivity issue with Galaxy smartwatches.
Update 1: Sep. 30
Apart from Galaxy Watch series device users, the Gear S3 also reportedly has the same connectivity issues. The beta operation manager recommended users send an error log, which suggests that the company will fix this issue with the next Beta build.
