Galaxy Note 20 speakers are so tall and capable that they almost never need to be set to 100%. But in the same way, it can be difficult to find the right volume level because one step represents a major change in the audio output. Believe it or not, there is actually a first-party tool to fix this problem.
With this Samsung-created app, you can adjust how many times you need to press the volume rocker to go from 0% to 100% volume. The default is 15 steps, which means that each keystroke represents about 7% of the total volume scale. But with this tool, you can make that number anywhere from 17 all the way up to 150 steps so that each print is less than 1% of the total volume.
Step 1: Install SoundAssistant
The app that does all this is SoundAssistant. Unlike other modding apps created by Samsung, this one is available in both the Galaxy Store and Play Store. Use one of the links below to download and install the app on your phone.
Step 2: Increase the media volume steps
Open SoundAssistant and scroll to the slider under “Change step volume.” Before making any adjustments to the slider, let me explain how it works. Also keep in mind that this will only adjust the media volume, not the ring volume.
There are 150 possible volume steps for the media controls, but the slider only goes from 1 to 10. Think of it as a scale where 10 is the least number of keystrokes between 0% and 100% volume (15), and 1 is the most (150).
All you have to do is adjust the slider – there is no save or confirm button. To help you visualize the difference, here is a small cheat sheet that shows the number of steps for each position on the slider.
