Does anyone else experience constant notification sounds when streaming/downloading.

Here's an example of what happens on my phone: https://youtu.be/HkYOoSBnfMY


This can't be right - does anyone know how I can stop this? It's making downloading annoying and streaming unusable.

I've only had the phone a few weeks and it's always done it, though not to this extent. I also have audio dropouts on my Bluetooth earphones when watching videos - the sound will play for around 5 seconds, then mute for exactly 30 seconds before returning. I do wonder if I have a faulty handset?

Did the notification issue start from when you first set it up?

Next thing is to see if this persists in safe mode.

The BBC Sounds app is disabled in safe mode, but streaming via the website in Chrome the notification sounded three times then stopped.

Yes, it's been persistent since I got the phone. It usually stopped after a few seconds, but has got worse to the extent in the video I uploaded.

Please try this. Go to settings, accessibility, advanced settings, notification reminers (you may see the link in the "looking for something else?" box and turn this off.
If you can cross your fingers at the same time, that may help.

Report it to samsing. If it has started since you got the phone then it might be their fault. Not sure though. If I was you I would report it to them and say it has been doing this since you got the phone a few weeks ago

Thanks, but it's already switched off.
