    So I had a Note 4. Been testing it against my S7 Edge.

    Refreshing FB and IG in app.
    S7e: Sometimes takes a while to do it. See bunch of "unable to connect" or something errors.
    N4: No constant issue.

    Listening to iHeartRadio or Samsung Milk.
    S7e: Buffer issues and sometimes need to press the stop button and restart it to get it going again.
    N4: No constant issue.

    Watching Youtube or Netflix.
    S7e: No constant issue.
    N4: No constant issues.

    Trying to see if its a OS or phone issue or something else. I do notice it usually acts up only when im on WiFi.

    You may try to factory-reset your phone and try again... I haven't seen any of those issues with any app (FB/IG included). I did, however, factory reset my phone before I started using it. Samsung Milk I haven't used a lot (I usually go to Spotify instead) but the few times I've used it so far has been OK.

    Figured I try that this weekend. Wanted to see if anyone else had similar issues and maybe a easier fix.

    Thanks though, hopefully if I do factory reset it, it'll fix it.

    I haven't had any buffering issues. I've used Netflix, Sirius, Play Music and Tune IN Radio. All good here.

    you can try doing a Cache clear from the Recovery Menu first. That won't wipe your device but it might help if there are things going wrong.

    No. I'm using a Samsung Evo+


    Tried the cache clear, didn't help. Currently doing a factory reset on it (since I got time right now)

    I have the same issues with buffering on the same type apps and very slow app store loading. Yhis mostly happens at home when on wifi. Everywhere else I have no problem. A lot of people are saying turn off ipv6 on router. I've done a little reading and this should not be my problem as I can get serice everywhere else. We have tried rebooting router and restarting phone after cache clear and still not much better. I may try a factory reset next and see if one of the apps is causing me issues as I did the mirror set up and copied all from old phone to new. Not using an sd card as I got used to not having one in old sammy phone.
    Keep us posted on how the phone preforms after reset!

    Some people are reporting spotty WiFi performance if their Bluetooth is on. Might try that and see if you need to get a replacement.

    I had a Note 4 previously also and for me the S7 Edge is much faster and honestly haven't had any buffering issues with it, none, I use Pandora, Spotify and youtube quite often..

    Sorry for the late reply, just got back into town yesterday.

    i've been on IPV4 for a while now. Changed it while I was troubleshooting my old phone.

    Its always off unless I have it connected to my speakers.


    UPDATE: Post factory reset. Didnt use a SD card. Only installed FB, IG, and iHeartRadio. Still same issues.

    Reloaded my old backup since I was going out of town. While there I started to get a few "failed to connect" errors trying to NFC (or BT) connect to my Samsung Box Mini. Finally got it to work by disassociating it and reconnecting. Another thing my Note 4 had no issues with.

    Once I got back into town, I went to T-Mobile to request a replacement. Only issue I was able to show them was the FB unable to connect error. New phone should be here Monday...hopefully the new one doesnt have the same issues.

    So had my new phone for ~1 day now. Reloaded my backup.

    So far no issues I had with my first phone. Just got done listening to IHeartRadio for 10 mins and Milk for 5 mins without buffering issues. FB/IG refreshes fine (though I did have one FB cannot connect right now error).

    Still need to test out for a longer period but I think the problem was my phone.
