Does Samsung Galaxy A14 5G have aptX Bluetooth codecs?

No, the Samsung Galaxy A14 5G does not have aptX Bluetooth codecs like aptX Adaptive, aptX HD, aptX Lossless, etc. It supports the following Bluetooth audio codecs: SBC, AAC, LDAC, and Samsung Scalable Codec.

However, some users may prefer aptX codecs, which are proprietary codecs developed by Qualcomm and offer higher transmission rates and better compatibility with some devices. Unfortunately, Samsung does not support aptX codecs on its phones, possibly due to licensing fees or its own preference for its Scalable Codec. If you want to use aptX codecs on your Samsung phone, you may need to root your device and install a custom ROM that enables them. However, this may void your warranty and cause other issues.
