My comment today is about the notification issue plaguing samsung mobile since there last update I still cannot hear notification neither does notification volume works only when I have a Bluetooth earpiece, it’s quite annoying not hearing yr messages neither whatsapp messages or messenger it’s ironic a new update is rolling out and nothing in there about notification bugs been fix so I guess these mean samsung will be losing another customer.
