Help Bad - shallow in game sound

Hello,

I was using Samsung Galaxy A52 5G and I still have an issue with bad audio quality on my new S22 Ultra. All games have this issue. Not only games sound awful but also the video being edited when being played whole in the video editor.



Whole S21 family also suffers from this issues. Nobody has fixed it since S21 launch!

Here's the original poster of the issue with his S21 Ultra:https://eu.community.samsung.com/t5/galaxy-s21-series/s21u-game-sound-quality/m-p/4839255#M39626



Here's mine from the A52 5G forum: https://eu.community.samsung.com/t5/galaxy-a-series/shallow-bad-game-audio-quality/m-p/4664228#M2173...

My S10+ didn't have this issue but now since OneUi 4 it also has that issue, so it's about Samsung definitely..

I've posted it here since S22 line is the latest and it still has the issue on OneUi 4.1.

why not just get a bluetooth speaker? i never really use my external speakers on my phone. its either my samsung buds or jbl bluetooth speakers for me.

as for you and your phone, i do not know how to help you out now. there is really no settings that will help out with the speakers on your phone. you can try an equalizer app to change the sound to your liking.

FYI looks like the same apparent issue is documented here as well...
https://www.sammobile.com/news/galaxy-z-flip-3-z-fold-3-one-ui-4-0-audio-bug/

Maybe grounds for a class action lawsuit? Good luck!

FWIW I have a Note20 Ultra myself, and the audio on that is OK for phone speakers. If I want to listen to things in HiFi, I use proper speakers or headphones.
well on my z fold 3, the audio has been pretty good......especially when i play games........no complaints from me.
