When my Galaxy Note 3 phone crashes it reboots itself. When it powers back on, the power button and the volume button do nothing. Previous volume settings are not loaded yet when it goes FULL brightness and FULL volume to play the Samsung logo followed by the AT&T logo with a Loud BONG BONG BONG! It is enough to be annoying even in a noisy office environment.
That sounds like an issue with that particular phone, especially as it has a bootlogo sound before it even is powered up.
What does that have to do with the audio control?
Samsung WANTED it to be like this.
