Does anyone ever get random weird sounds from their Samsung/Android phone?

    My other half used to get these weird sounds like a call ending — just a couple of beeps, but not a notification beep or anything like that — intermittently on her S7. I could never work out what was causing it, and now I'm getting them too!

    They happen maybe once every couple of days, so no big deal, but just a really weird bug. Anyway, anyone else get this?

    I had something happening on calls, random beeps, advice was to switch off the NFC which seems to have worked

    I've had a few recently, they sounded like the noise it makes when it's expecting you to say something into it's nice. I thought that's what it was actually.

    Reading around it's when an NFC card is near enough to be read by the phone. Makes sense in my situation as I had both my office access card and bus pass near it when it occurred.

    Yeah if it's like a quiet bloop it may well be that. My S10+ does it when it's next to my wallet

    I keep my phone in my top pocket and occasionally feel a vibration like I've got a notification but there's nothing there when I look

    Mine does that occasionally, couple of times I've just glimpse it saying it can't recognise me, so something has upset the screen or fingerprint reader

    There's also something buried in the settings somewhere that gives a small vibrate when you pick it up if there's a new notification. That drove me mad for ages.

    You could install Samsung's "nice catch" to find out what is causing it. It is a part of the good lock suite.
