I've always enjoyed my Samsung smart phones, but not my new A51. I have a serious problem with bluetooth. Bluetooth connection keeps disconnecting and/or stuttering. I have a feeling its software is buggy. Has anyone faced this issue and if yes, do you know of a solution? I have updated the software to the latest version.
** Further updates (4-Feb-2020): today while playing an audio book on my bluetooth headset (Samsugn Level U), voice disappeared and I could only hear noise; I had to restart the phone to resolve the issue (back to Windows 98 theme); I hope Samsung can resolve this asap. It is a serious issue.
** Update (10-Feb-2020): i have just installed the update A515FXXU2ATA8/A515FOJM2ATB1/A515FXXU2ATA8 size: 351.39 MB (dated: Feb 1, 2020). will start testing and provide updates in a few days.
** Update (14-Feb-2020): after a few days of testing, I can confirm the Bluetooth issues no longer exist. I have been playing Bluetooth audio and no disconnections or stuttering occurs.
Hiya, yes I can confirm that beta1b solution on page 13 did do the thing for me.
Took a while to dicide to make the effort but I'm enjoying now the full function of BT Music without interuption.
I've SM-A515F PHN (Netherlands) model.
- Downloaded the old firmware On Sammobile from 15-December: A515FXXU1ASKJ A515FOXM1ASKJ
- Downloaded and installed Odin3 (Same site has it and instructions)
- Backup device
- Removed SIM & SD card
- Entered Loading menu (Power down. Vol-up & Power together, select bootloader)
- Flashed with old firmware.
- Going to setup menu with less config as possible. NO WIFI !!!!!
- Entered Developer Options. (In telephone info / Software .. / tapping 7x Buildnr.)
- Disabled automatic update system (In developer options below Telephone Info)
- Restored backup, and a lot of manual configuration.
But it was worth the time.
Think I'll look back here in a couple of weeks and see if the new firmware will solve the issue. Until then no updating the firmware !!
I had only problems with update notification. I did not helped to disable update in developer mode.
I killed Update processes in developer mode. And for not showing again, I bought Package Disabler Pro for Samsung on Play store.
I this app I disabled: Software Update, System Update, Software Update (anotherone) and Dynamic System Updates.
Notification does not show up. If I reboot the phone, I must only to kill the processes again in developer mode.
I hope it helps someone.
Stil waiting for official fix.
Should I download this update ? I'm running ATA4 and the Bluetooth is working fine.
My friend who bougth my phone told, he got back it from the samsung offical service. They told, there is no problem with the bluetooth. The only solution is: Don't buy this phone.
