Distorted & buzzing speakers on iPhone X

27
I'm told hardware is hard. Looks like the new iPhone X has another issue. From 9to5mac:

The latest issue, according to reports on Twitter, Reddit, and 9to5Mac’s comment section, appears to be related to crackling and buzzing coming from the earpiece speaker…

On Friday, we reported on an issue affecting a limited (tsk) number of iPhone X units that caused a green line to appear on the side of the display. In the comments of that article, a discussion emerged regarding earpiece crackling.


Reports are it's happening at medium to high sound volume.

Seems like after rushing to compete.with Samsung on design, the iPhone is coming up short on quality standards. In Germany, they call this the "Banana Principle" where the product ripens at the customer.

Anyone else seeing this?
