    Is there an easy way to adjust these at the same time? It's annoying to have to go into the settings to change the notification volume when I change the ringer volume. My S3 changed both with the volume button.

    It does not appear that the setting to link the ringtone and notification tone volumes is present on the S5. You don't have to go all the way into settings to adjust the notification, just change the ringtone volume, touch the cog and you can adjust all of the volumes in a toast type window. Maybe you are already doing that...

    Also, when you sent the phone to mute or vibrate, it adjusts both the notification and ringtone at once.

    I just tried it again. Mine only adjusts the ring volume when I turn it up all the way or anywhere in between. I have to adjust the notification volume by going into the setting cog.

    No, you don't. Pull down to where you can see your wifi /location/ sound etc and hold sound for about 1-2 seconds, from there you can adjust all sounds for all notifications. You don't have to go to settings.

    It will only adjust both when you mute or put the device in vibrate. Im not use what it returns to when turning it back up. And here's a screen of what I was talking about the Toast like volume settings.

    I have been looking for an app that does this for a loong time, and finally found it just a few days ago. Cost a buck or two but worth it.

    That's an even longer way to get to the settings. When you adjust the volume just select the cog. That's still a pain to have to adjust individual settings.

    Okay now someone tell me whether navigation voice is considered a notification?

    I was using navigation and listening to a podcast today, and suddenly the nav voice came on three times as loud as the podcast

    Volume control is my main beef so far with the S5. My Bluetooth volume is about half what it should be, about half what it was with my G Nex and I'm perplexed. A straight 1/4" jack out the headphones and into the AUX input is loud... once you get past the headphone warning.

    I think you misunderstood our dilemma - we're not asking how to get to the sound setting, but how to find that option that allows the volume and the notifications volume to be at adjusted with one action - like when we press the button on the side to turn the volume up or down, we want the notification volume to also adjust at the same time instead of only having the main volume adjust, then having to take an extra step to go into the sound/volume setting and adjust the notifications volume. I'm sure I'm not the only one who corrected you on this since it was posted, but you never know who's still looking for the correct answer (like me).

    I for one did not misconstrue what the OP asked for, I just didn't have a super simple way to get there. I did it with MacroDroid and for me, that was okay, it works like I want.

    but for you, and the OP, did you overlook the simple way to do it mentioned up above a few posts?

    * Volume Sync - Android Apps on Google Play


    Install that app and then let the side buttons control everything simultaneously.

    that app hasn't been updated in 3 years, several folks with S5 phones saying stuff like this:


    Crashes I had the same problem on my s4 and now on my s5! When changing moods like from vibrate back to sound it doesn't do anything I need to completely restart the phone and re open the app. Big waste of my time, deleting the app now and finding a better one that works atleast more than 50% of the time!

    Will this change the default volume settings, holding sounds 1-2 seconds? Samsung android keeps changing the volume when powering up. Tried again last night, changing volume to 30, then powered up this morning and the volume was at 19.

    On the latest Galaxy S5 Lollipop firmwares you can touch the phone's VOLUME key and the cog symbol to display and adjust all the sound settings. See screenshots, below...

    This is what I see when I use the volume rocker and then hit the cog on my s5. My phone just did the most recent update yesterday, when I bought it. On my old s3 when I hit the cog it would show all 4 volumes like the previous poster shows. How do I get it to look like that?

    Unfortunately, Verizon are using a prehistoric Lollipop build, see post #1 of Lollipop release. Massive update!!!, that is not a stock Samsung release, see #1.6 of 40 Galaxy S5 models - Dummies Guide, so lots of the latest improvements and enhancements are not available or have been disabled for their customers.
