I have a Galaxy S21 Ultra 5K, Android version 14, about 2 yrs old. Yesterday it began giving this "alert tone", for lack of a better description. I had not changed any settings or downloaded any new apps. It is a transient thing and, of course, would not duplicate at the Verizon store. It makes the tone when I open different apps. I have gone in and turned off al.ost all notifications, but it hasn't stopped. Can anyone tell me what this might be or how/what to do to stop it? Also, I plugged phone in last night normally and this morning it was only at 45%. Don't know if that's connected or not.

Did you install the 6iu uodatecas yet? If you did you have your answer.
Did you go into the notifications in setting app or turned off apps individually?
Try going into settings then notifications advanced settings turn off all the settings there and see if that helps. Also check sounds and vibration in settings hit volume and check media ringtone notifications and system. Possibly the update turned something on you had turned off previously. My 23 Ultra had many glitches with apps turned on that I had either shutdown or uninstalled. Also check your AOD & turn it off. You might want to uninstall android auto too. I had to do so much work & clearing caches to get my phone going almost back to normal.

Hope it works out. It took me a couple of days to get my phone back to pretty much normal.

I believe Good Lock  has an app that can tell you what the alert was.  I think it is called, "Nice Catch".

Ultra 5K must be a nice phone.

I've had that slow charging issue for at least a year on my S215g. It will regularly but not always charge maybe 1 or 2% in 30 minutes. I found that if I pulled the charging cord, at either end, and reinserted it charging would be normal. Just another smartphone glitch, of which there seems to be an unlimited supply.
