Get the app rocker locker, it locks the default volume to the media volume. I personally have my ringer on or off and almost never mess with its volume.
Try this app instead. It only does one thing (lock the volume buttons to media volume), but it works for me, and should do so on all Android devices.
there is! rockerlocker
I don't even notice that it's on, that just makes it default behaviour to change media volume. download that, good to go.
For 4, if you want to prioritise media volume, you can use an app like Rocker Locker which changes the behaviour of the volume buttons to change the media volume by default.
Here are some apps with neat functionality that I really recommend to make the move away from Samsung and all their quality-of-life improvements a bit easier:
Volume keys control media by default
Screenshot editing and sharing, sceen select capture
Start changing the volume when video starts. That way it changes the media volume.
When you hit the volume button in the alarm/clock app it changes volume of alarm. Regular screens it changes ringer volume.
There's an app on the Play store called "rocker locker" I believe to fix this and change media volume everytime.
I'm using an app called "Rocker Locker" on my Priv to do that.
It's crazy that this is a feature built into BB10, and it's impossible to do in Android without running a separate app full-time to catch the button presses.
Also I miss Notification Profiles...
Have no experience with number one, but I can answer some questions about the rest.
Note that all of these apply only to the ZE552KL "vanilla" model of the Zenfone 3 - that's the one with the glass back and the 5.5" screen. Other Zenfone 3 models (including the Laser, Max, Ultra, Deluxe and Zoom) may be different.
There is also the app Rocker Locker, which should work on any device, although it might drain your battery, as it seems like it's playing an inaudible sound all the time.
Might be worth a try, tho: [link]
I found the solution, there is this app called Rocker Locker which disables the volume buttons changing the notification volume and now it only changes the media volume, I have a 2013 Nexus 7 and it worked for me.
The why don't you just download something like the rocker locker app? Maybe I don't experience the problem you have because I have always used this app since switching to android- S7 - S8 - Oneplus 5T and now P20 Pro.
Like you have to make a manual step one way or another right - switch profile, turning on silent mode, or whatever. Just get rocker locker and it will turn down media whenever you turn down ringer. It's been an android staple for ages - surprising you haven't come across it.
I used this app that makes the button always change the media volume and it works fine, other apps like volume lock can lock the slide so it doesn't change but I've never tried them
I use this because it just defaults my volume rocker to media all the time. I keep my phone on vibrate 100% of the time, so this thing was a game changer for me for sure.
I use an "app" called Rocker Locker that makes my physical volume buttons always control media volume, never ringer volume. In the rare event that I need to change ringer volume, I use the drop-down arrow to switch from media volume to other volumes.
Thank you! This is great. I've used Rocker Locker before, but the way it works is by always playing sound through your speakers. This one is much better!
Try Rocker Locker: [link]
Others have said it might drain your battery, as it plays an inaudible sound all the time, but it might be worth a try
There's a free app you can get which fixes this:
Welcome on team pixel. Everyone asks about my phone when I show them the pictures I take on it. Good team to be on.
Here are some apps with neat functionality that I really recommend on the phone that make the look over at Samsung and all their quality-of-life improvements a bit easier:
Possibly your volume down button getting pressed in your pocket until it goes into vibrate? If that's the case, you can use an app like Rocker Locker to force the volume buttons to always adjust media volume instead of your ringer.
You can also enable the System UI Tuner by long pressing the settings "gear" icon in the notification shade, then go to Settings>System>SystemUI and remove the Do Not Disturb volume shortcuts so you don't accidentally activate it.
It isn't perfect but you might like Rocker Locker. I ended up uninstalling it because it's slightly finicky but it mostly does the job.
The app I use for this is Rocker Locker, it's very simple, just keeps your default volume control to media at all times. You'll have to turn off the power saving settings for it.
I use this app called Rocker Locker which locks the volume buttons to control media volume only.
It's very helpful because I rarely change the ringtone volume, just silent or vibrate.
I use this app called 'rocker locker' which sets your volume keys to media volume first. You'll never have this problem again.
Haven't tried it, but Rocker Locker seems to do exactly what you're looking for, and it seems like it doesn't affect battery life at all.
This also annoys the shit out of me in conjunction with music being muted when Do Not Disturb is enabled. Why can't it apply to notifications and not music?
Anyways, I too am so tired of getting blasted by the assistant's "bloop" sound especially in public places.
OP, going the non-root and non-tasker route there are apps such as Rocker Locker which can be set to return your volume to a set level after a certain amount of time has passed or other criteria.
i had trouble with my phone, whenever i pushed the volume buttons itd change the volume for the phone speaker and make a beeping sound, instead of the default volume setting. i tried looking for solutions to the problem and this app was what helped and its free too
You can download Rocker Locker, which will automatically default to media volume control. You can change everything from Sound On, Vibrate and Mute in the notification shortcut panel, or whatever it's called.
There's an app for this called Rocker Locker that fixes this exact problem.
EDIT: Link: [link]
I saw someone already posted an app but this app rocket locker changes your volume button to automatically change your media volume [link]
I'm currently using Rocker locker because of its simplicity.
If you need more customization try SoundHUD.
That link is not working for me. This app locks the the volume to the media as well, and is free without in app purchases or advertisements.
Rocker locker is a good app to control media volume directly. On any phones.
Samsung has a sound Assistant on the s8 that allows this to happen.
Other Samsung users can download sound Assistant and use it on their phones. This way you can also set your volume scenarios and even set individual volumes for individual apps.
So to answer, it's not the behavior anymore, it's just that some have not implemented the option for the system to realize in which app you are now.
The thread you needed to find: [link]
And the mentioned apps:
For non samsung: Rockerlocker
For samsung: Sound assistant

install rocker locker.
Never used it, but maybe this? [link]
Rocker locker does this.
I found Rocker Locker, which might do what I want.
errr...I have the Galaxy S6, so I'm sure there are differences, but if I had to start over here's the stuff I'd get/do right away, or stuff I'm still looking for.
I can't describe how unlocking your phone is different, and I can't say which one is better, but it's a change that you'll (have to) get used to.
Every time (every.fucking.time) I plug my phone into my car through the headphone jack it sets my volume to half level, and won't let me turn it up unless I acknowledge that loud music can hurt my ears.
Still looking for a way to hide system notifications.
Looking for a way to use OK Google (androids Siri) without unlocking my phone. Like...I'm using voice commands for a reason android, why won't you do the thing unless I walk over there, pick you up and unlock you??
Still looking for something I like to change my vibration patterns. Every single friggin notification feels like an iPhone text.
Still looking for a way to give location data access to some apps but not others.
Install Rocker Locker - changes the volume rockers to change the volume and not the ringer (a little buggy since my last update)
Install Google keyboard - The stock one on my phone was a little frustrating.
Install All in one Gestures - Not sure where you're going to want your new back/settings/folder buttons, but this lets you decide.
Install google photos - This is my current replacement for Apple cloud photos
If you do a lot of group texting between iPhones, you're might miss that on Android. Luckily most people I group message were cool with installing Google Hangouts. Basically just give your life over to Google. It'll be ok. They'll take care of you now.
If you used to facetime, that's gone now. I use skype.
That's all I can think of right now. You'll probably download a million things thinking you need them and then just delete them later when you get used to it, but it's worth it. The things it can do are amazing.
One thing that always gets me is the sharing. Hit the share button and it gives you so many options; things you didn't even think were possible.
And again, the ability to do whatever you can think up is boggling. Just this weekend I thought "I wonder if I could play something through every phone that's attached to my wifi, and that's totally a thing that can happen
