So I just purchased the Samsung Galaxy note from Bell (Canada). As I expected, the phone is absolutely amazing! Great device. The only thing I have issues with is the sound/volume. With headphones on, and listening to music (with any player app) the volume will for a spit second go 100% (extremely loud), then back to the set volume. It is very very random, and so it is hard to pinpoint the cause. I did however notice it happens alot when I am touching controls to the music player. I notice there is sometimes a lag or delay when I change the volume with he volume keys on the side of the phone. To troubleshoot, I tried turning of WiFi and LTE, but it has no effect, nor does playing music files off the internal memory vs the sd card. I have also turned off "Audible Selection" which seemed to stop the issue, but I still get those random extremely loud spit-second spikes in volume. I cannot find any other people online who seem to have this issue - some post about spikes in volume during calls, but for me it's just music (as far as I have experienced). if ANYONE has ever once had this issue, please reply back! I am wondering of it is an Android software thing, or Samsung hardware issue. Need to know if I should return the phone for a new one.
