Samsung GALAXY Note4 Bluetooth issues
I love my new Samsung GALAXY Note4. But I seem to be having issues with the Bluetooth over certain device since I got the phone. I've owned the Samsung I9300 Galaxy S III and used this phone over the same devices and never had any issues.
I bought my Samsung GALAXY Note4 with Android version 4.4.4 and just received a major update just recently. When this update occured I thought it would fix one particular Bluetooth issue I was having, and that is streaming music over my Clarion CX501 car stereo. Since I purchased this phone, when I try to stream music over my car stereo it starts to skip, jump, stutter and disconnect. I tried EVERYTHING that I found on that internet and NOTHING worked, including stopping applications maybe because of high CPU utilization. I even installed Bluetooth Auto Connect and that didn't work either. Now I never had issues before until the new phone.
Just recently I found an article on the internet about turning off Wi-fi. Now I don't really see how that would work because Wi-fi and Bluetooth are to different types of radios. I said what the heck what it can't hurt. I turned the Wi-fi off on my phone and began streaming to my car stereo and not one skip, jump or stutter occured. Drove all the way to work with no issues.
So there has to be an issue with Androids Bluetooth stack, Kernel or the way it utilizes Wi-fi and/or Bluetooth. For weeks this was an ongoing issue with my phone and turning off the Wi-fi while streaming seemed to solve the issue.
Is AT&T and/or Android looking into this? It seems to be a big issue with the phone trying to stream over devices using Bluetooth.
