GoPro Hero4 Black and Andoid App on Note 4

First off, GoPros are an awesome product.  This is my first one.  I've tried a couple knockoffs prior.  They were very weak compared to a GoPro.

 

Now, here's the thing I wanted to discuss.  I have a Samsung Note 4 runnin' Android 6.0.1.  The phone/app communicates well with the Hero4, except the video feed glitches every 3 - 5 seconds.  I paired the cam with a Samsung S7 runnin' Android 8 and the video feed is flawless.

 

What exactly is causing the glitchy video feed on my Note 4?  Is it the phone hardware or the Android version?

 

I'm assuming there's no solution for the issue.

Update:

I rebooted my Note 4 and the video feed from the camera works perfectly now..  Anyone else experience anything like this?
