Problem is not just audio but can my calls but they cannot be heard unless I use Bluetooth or earpiece. Have now restricted my phone to usage in the car only.
The same sound problem on the A8 + (SM-A730F) with Android 8.0 Oreo in Brazil. You can not listen to an audio without it skipping or jumping. Loading or not the problem exists. It seems the problem is global. Now it is to wait for Samsung's willingness to launch a fix, at best on being a software problem.
same issues here. could u guys send feedback to samsung from your samsung members apps to make samsung aware of this problem?
I have Oreo and can confirm that this bug is still in place, along with a few more but those are trivial and not nearly as irritating as this, it basically makes media consumption impossible when in charge after 90% or higher. Samsung better roll out a security patch or I'm getting a custom rom, this is beyond ridiculous.

Xiaomi may be having cheaper and sexier phones but there are flaws camouflaged in that. Huawey?! Oh please, no way! Sony still have the best priced and featured devices in most of the cases.
Which one is better when we compare between Oneplus 5 and Samsung Galaxy A8.

If you want february software buy yourself new phone because android update is just gimmick anyway.
Good thing my Huawei Y7 Prime performs better than this uper midrange bullsheet. :)

We have Nokia and Sony. The former complies to pure Android (and Android One) with minor Nokia touches, while Sony modifies the software quite a bit more.
Guess what, they deliver timely updates and almost none of them have issues.
Let's just admit the fact that there are really so many lazy Android OEMs who want to make more phones than keeping all of them up to date and with a smooth and stable performance.
KaneJ, 01 Jun 2018Fully agreed, can't go wrong with something like a Huawei Mate 10 Pro...Except headphone jack.

These days I am seeing lot of software issues with mostly all Mobiles, all OS's and all manufacturers. I am really not sure when I am ready to upgrade my mobile from Mi Note 5 later this year or early next year which brand/OS to choose. Just worrying about spending so much and then getting such issues. I think better to buy some 150-200$ phones use for 1 to 1.5 years and then buy something else again rather than pending upwards of 500$ and then getting stuck for it for long time if some issue comes up.

My s8 is stuck on december patch and android 7.0 and it's fine. Probably when something really new and useful comes to the table, I am going to update it.
I hope that samsung will solve this problem because samsung phones still has lots of things that I'd liked to see somewhere else's brands.
