    Welcome to Android Central! It may be due to one of the apps you installed. Does this happen in Safe Mode as well? How do I use Safe Mode on my Galaxy A5?

    Hi, thank you for your response. At 1st i thpught its android 6.0.1 so i loaded fresh & the issue was still there then i tried safe mode and the problem still existed. A friend told me it might be hardware issue. Audio AC something like that. Pls any other solutions to this freezing. Coz it happens only when display goes to sleep mode or when i turn off display by power button. If the display remains on, the freezing doesn't happen at all.

    Do you mean that you reinstalled the firmware using either Smart Switch or Odin?

    Hi, I'm having exactly the same problem as steve: my A5 2016 freezes when audio output is triggered while the screen is in sleep mode.
    Did you find a solution? I really hope so !!!
    Thank you for your answers
