The audio/music playback in android apps is stuttering while the device is moving (going by train/car) and connected to the mobile network.

Affected devices and versions

This issue occurs on my Sony Xperia XA2 Dual-Sim device running on SFOS

How to reproduce

  1. Install the Android app 'Spotify' (I have a premium subscription)
  2. Take your XA2 device for a drive by a car/train
  3. Activate the mobile network. You also could deactivate the WIFI
  4. Open the Spotify app and start to playback some music (tested it with a connected headset & via Bluetooth)
  5. Use your device while the music is playing: Just switch between apps, browse the web or write some SMS
  6. Result: The music playback is stuttering. The stuttering gets worse while the device is beeing used (the music pauses/skips about every 3 seconds for a short moment). I assume this stuttering is also associated with the changing connections to the cell towers, since this issue gets worse on a bad network coverage/reception. If the device is locked and not interacted with the stuttering appears quite seldom.
