A51 Bluetooth issues

Hello,

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. 

 

Thanks,

Yosuef

In the german samsung community a moderator from samsung wrote that they can reproduce the issue and that they are working on a fix.

But they can't say when it will be available.

A51 will get quater yearly updates.

I think they maybe will release the fix in summer 2020.

Also UK customer. After years of trying to decide whether to upgrade my old Samsung I finally decided a week ago to get the galaxy a51 and have been having this issue. I thought it was the headphones which are less than 9 months old but thought I'd look into it more before buying new ones. I'm really disappointed I wasted money on a new phone that I primarily use with my Bluetooth headphones, but hey at least I didn't waste more money on new ones!
