    Hi, All of a sudden, after a hard resrt, I started having this random chimes (simillar to drops hitting water). They seem to happen every 5mins and even play on top of music. Please help me hunt down the cause, as its extreemely annoying.

    You get those sounds when you lock and unlock the screen on default settings so maybe it's related to that?

    Try disabling the NFC "tap-to-send". I found that my phone would make this sound if I placed my bank/oyster card next to it.
