With the Galaxy S21 series, Samsung kick-started the stable Android 12 update rollout, bringing a revamped UI and a bunch of new features, courtesy of One UI 4.0. While every major software update aims to fix various issues and bugs on Galaxy devices for better UX, the audio-related issues seem to still be unfixed with Samsung One UI 4.
As per a recent report, several Samsung fans have been reporting audio issues on their Galaxy devices. The affected phones are Galaxy Z Fold 3/Z Flip 3, Galaxy S21, Galaxy S20, Galaxy S10, Galaxy A52 5G, and Galaxy Z Fold 2. Though some users claimed that this bug emerged after upgrading to One UI 4.0, while some of them say it was there already.
Consumers reported, the affected device sounds flat and low in quality all day and gets worse while playing games or editing videos with the stock video editor. However, low and mid-range audio frequencies are the most reported audio issue on Galaxy phones, while you can apparently hear with high-quality earphones.
Samsung has not yet acknowledged this issue to date, even there’s no official/moderator reply on a number of user reports and complaints. Some users said to start screen recording to temporarily fix the irritating audio issue, but it makes other indirect issues such as disabling 120fps gaming.
- Some official/unofficial responses recommend a factory reset to fix the bad audio quality issues, but those issues remain unfixed.
Undoubtedly, most of the Galaxy phone users didn’t notice that their device produces low-quality audio while playing games, streaming videos, or other daily routine operations. As the audio issues have been reported by a large number of users, Samsung should investigate and provide a fix for a better user experience.
Have you ever noticed low-quality audio on your smartphones? Feel free to share your concerns with us in the comments section, we will add them to the story!
Samsung Android 12 users facing strange Google Keep issue
Google Keep is a simple but delightful note-taking application that allows users to record plain-text notes and organize, edit or share them with others using a suite of collaboration tools. But the recent bugs reported by its users are ruining its popularity.
According to the new information (via 9to5Google), for the past two months, some Google Keep users on Google Forums have been complaining about a bug that affects numbered lists. It is worth noting that this problem has been mostly reported by Samsung Galaxy users who are running Android 12 based One UI 4.0 software system.
As shown in the picture below, this issue duplicates numbers in lists. When users add a new item to a numbered list or navigate through the list, the item above explicitly adds these additional numbers. One user also reported that this happened with a bulleted list in which the cursor was “jumping around while typing.”
The Good thing is that Google has acknowledged the problem and claims it’s investigating, but they didn’t say when exactly the fix would roll out. At present, it looks like there is no easy solution to this problem. However, to temporarily get rid of it, users can edit lists from a laptop or theoretically a web app on a smartphone.
Samsung Galaxy M31/M31s got freezing issue with recent One UI update
Samsung Galaxy M31 packs the adequate performance of all the features you would expect in any midrange smartphone. But, some Galaxy M31 users are stuck in the frozen and auto restart issues after the recent One UI firmware update.
To be mentioned, Samsung released a new software update with December 2021 security patch for Galaxy M31 smartphones. As confirmed by the company, the update comes with fixes to 5 critical, 22 high, and 3 moderate CVEs from Google.
Notably, some Galaxy M31 owners reported on the community forum that they have started facing issues after installing the December security update. The new security patch comes to resolve issues and bugs but here’s goes the opposite. Users are mainly facing auto-restart and freeze issues in the smartphone.
The issue is dam serious as a particular users state that after grabbing December 2021 security patch, his smartphone got frozen as a result got the motherboard replaced today.
Along with that Galaxy M31s, smartphone users are also troubling after the latest software update. They are also facing the exact problem of around 40 to 50 times automatically restarting and freezing.
The users mentioned that on complaining about the issue the Samsung help center answer them to change the motherboard. Users are really disappointed with such an issue.
We hope that this issue will automatically resolve in the upcoming update from Samsung. And the user will soon get rid of this.
Various Samsung phones reported having issues after One UI 4.0 update
Earlier this month, Samsung debuted with the rollout of One UI 4.0 based on Android 12. But this update was not so pleasant as users faced a lot of problems with the update. Recently, various users have started complaining about the bugs and issues after upgrading the new UI version.
Galaxy users are really disappointed with the most awaited Android 12 based One UI 4.0 update and have posted about their issue on the community forum. Let me clear you, the issue is not for any specified device, it occurs in maximum series of Galaxy devices which includes the S series, A series, and Note series.
Below mentioned about the issue faced by the users in the One UI 4.0 update.
- The Expanded quick settings panel shows fewer buttons than before when multi sim info is enabled and device care buttons are disabled.
- Notification section is useless space available, the multi-SIM info area is unnecessarily large and can be easily moved up (when device control buttons are disabled) to accommodate 3 rows of useful buttons.
- This change is completely unnecessary and very annoying as it was already one-hand friendly before the update. To accommodate more icons need to turn off multi sim info which actually used from time to time.
- There are get three rows only when the device care button is enabled. But you only get two rows when only multi-sim info is enabled. The SIM replacement options are unnecessarily large.
All the above issues mentioned by users on the Samsung community forum, It’s dismaying. let’s make it clear that these types of problems usually happen when your smartphone gets a new update as the smartphone takes a little time to adjust to new changes in its system.
However, it’s recommended to wait a while as it will be automatically resolved, and if it doesn’t. Then the Samsung will definitively fix the issue and bugs in your devices with the forthcoming updates.
Along with the One UI 4 issue, we mentioned some of its exciting features that users are enjoying a lot.
- Better virtual RAM management
- Enhanced wallpaper-based color theme integration
- An improved system and camera performance
- Extended battery life
- New and powerful S Pen features
