    Somehow the system sounds have gotten louder since the update to OxygenOS 5.1.6.
    For example the sound when waking up the phone from standby with fingerprint or sending the phone to standby via pushing the power button.
    This sound is very loud, even on the lowest volume setting.

    It would also be very nice if you would be able to separate the volume for system sounds from the volume of notifications and ringtones.

    and why did you feel it was necessary for a brand new thread and not replying to the official update thread?

    Because this is a support forum and if you put every bug in one thread, noone will be able to follow and differentiate single problems.

    This is an Android thing. I believe the Notification volume controls system sounds. Many custom ROMs allow this to be "unlinked" from alarm volume.

    Also maybe this problem isn't even related to the update itself and it is just selective perception as I noticed it just after the update. , maybe some third party apps are the reason for this.
    If someone has NOT experienced the same problem as me, he could tell me and so I have to look myself if I find the reason for my unique problem.
    If many others experience the same problem, maybe they have a workaround for it.

    Where's the problem? Don't raise the volume completely, just make the loudest settings louder and leave the low setting unchanged. So you can have the volume range between "low" AND "loud" just as you like! Now it's only "loud" and "slightly less loud".

    It's not only the system sounds. Ringtones, Notifications are way too loud now. According to online chat support you can't do anything about that :mad:
    Hard reset will work though...

    I confirm this is a problem that raised after last update : I applied the update and suddenly all system sounds and notifications seem to be at max volume even if volume is set to minimum. This is clearly a mistake as it is now useless to set any low level in the volume bar. I was personally pleased to previous settings and I don't see the need of such a huge bump in the volume. I will also reply to official thread and eventually open a bug report

    Yes, this is for all sounds, not just system sounds. It's very annoying since I really loved how low the lowest setting is.
