Hi Guys,

This is driving me insane. I use my phone as a music player in my car (usually DI.FM app, or the stock audio player). On GS5 any audio app (, stock audio player playing local media, sound cloud, etc), can start stuttering (dropping audio, gaining it for a few seconds, then dropping again, then good for a few mins, then dropping again). This can happen from 1 to 10 times in a single track. Infuriating. My GS4 worked like a charm, never an issue, so did pretty much every other android phone I had.

Apparently the 'fix' is to wipe your cache in recovery, but this only solves it until the next BT reconnect for me. From some online digging this seems to also happen on GSNote3:

Does anyone know what to do? The phone is 4 weeks old, and I don't want to sell it and go back to GS4 or go to LG G3.
My GS5 is stock, locked to Rogers, unmessed with.
