    Greetings.

    I've noticed for some time now that whenever I game on my Galaxy S6 and I receive any notification which produces sound, my game sound is automatically muted and doesn't recover until I exit that particular game and re-enter it.

    I do have a custom (non default) notification sound set.

    Is there any known problem about this and possible fix for it, or am I just a lone example of more-problems-of-smart-phones-being-broken?

    Thanks for any answer.

    Have you tried putting your phone on vibrate only?
    Alternatively, at the risk of missing phone calls, you could put your phone in airplane mode when playing games.

    Yes, that works with me. But it is not a fix or resolution I'm hoping for.
     

Samsung Galaxy S6

The Samsung Galaxy S6 launched in 2015 as the company's flagship. It features a 5.1-inch screen with 2560 x 1440 resolution, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and an impressive 16 megapixel camera.
