Hey guys,

Want to see if this happening to anyone else. I have a galaxy a52s. When I watch a 2160p 60fps video on YouTube, the video will be playing fine. But then when I leave the app to answer a message for example, and then return to the youtube app, the quality for the video has been locked to 480p. 

Here's an example video that it happens on but make sure to open it in the official YouTube app. Either let it reach 2160p 60fps or manually select it, then leave the youtube app and then return to the youtube app.

IS it a standard call you receive or one that requires the internet (such as WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger), @A52suser?

That was just an example, as in I would leave the app to do something like answer a text message. It happens whenever you leave the app.

More than likely it's power saving behaviour, not just to do with data bandwidth being needed potentially for other apps.
