No bluetooth, no headset.
Simply sometimes when i restart the phone or i make a call the volume(Mostly media) is at half from full.
I can't answer that for sure, but I think it's a good bet that a future update will address the issue. My experience with Samsung devices in recent years, has been very positive. They do seem to keep up on fixing bugs. As far as I could find, it is affecting all variants of the S8 and S9. (Haven't seen any mention of it happening on the S10 yet.)
I have an idea that might lead to a fix. Somewhere in your system partition, most likely /system/etc
, you should find 2 files that would be worth checking for a "max starting volume" setting, or something very similarly worded. One is the feature.xml
and the other is literally named, "other.xml"
which is usually in csc.
Additionally, it would probably be worth checking out your build.prop(s). Just remember, that there's at least 3 prop files. One in oem, vendor, and system. You might have something like, audio.safemedia.force=true
in there, which would definitely cause the problem you have. Actually, I'd check those first. They should be smaller and easier to skim through.
One last thing I can think of, is checking your settings_system.xml, settings_global.xml, and settings_secure.xml
. All them should be found in, /data/system/users/0/
. You can also use a terminal app or adb to list them with,
su (or "adb shell")
settings list secure
settings list global
settings list system
I would definitely check those last though. They're always pretty big, and painful to read through. I wish you the best of luck! If I can find anything more about it, I'll definitely drop you a line.
