When you reboot the phone, when playing the bootable Nokia tune, you can also hear crackling and noise
Poor audio quality after oreo update.
Lots of hissing and some crackling.
Sound was great in nougat.
What went wrong, devs?
I have Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 both models.Nokia 5 is updated to latest oreo 8.1 update and good thing is nokia 5 does not have any sound issues(It is perfectly good which has no noise or crackling sound at all volume levels is low to high).But when it comes to Nokia 6 it is very bad with Oreo update which has same noise or crackling noise even with latest Oreo 8.1 update. I think Nokia is fooling us with not rectifying sound issues.Nokia please read my review and help Nokia 6 customers.I appreciate loud volume levels but also it needs to be rock solid and noise/Crackling free.I am a Nokia Fan.Hope someone look at this problem.
I was planning on getting this phone for this feature (among others), but I'm glad I came upon this thread while researching. This is really unfortunate. I will wait 2 weeks and follow this thread to see if they fix it, but if they don't I'll buy one of the other phones I've been looking at.
After oreo 8.1 update the quality of dolby atmos is very good (Surround effect) but there is little distortion in sound and also hissing/cracking sound is not yet solved.But overall 8.1 update brought some excellent ui changes to nokia 6.Also battery backup is improved a lot when compared to 8.0 update.So hope nokia fixes sound issues and also punchy bass is not present please add equalizer support to nokia 6. One more thing Nokia 6 is only smartphone to have dolby atmos with stereo speakers in nokia android phones.Latest nokia 6 2018 does not have stereo speakers which is very dissapointing. Hope nokia rectifies original nokia 6 sound issues in april update.performance is very good on oreo 8.1 (Smooth and fluid)
Camera has improved a lot.It takes photos faster and hdr mode is also fast.But i was expecting the pro camera app but unfortunately still no pro camera app.But overall Camera is faster and image looks sharper and color reproduction is improved.But i need full camera software like on lumia phones.
Dear Nokia,Using Nokia6 from last 6 months.Everything was going in good order.
But after receiving 8.1 Oreo Update ,the same problem, low-quality sound, loud-speakers hiss and crack.
Tried everything, factory restore, turned off dolby, safe mode restart and also contact nearest service center but nothing happened.I love Nokia but this stage i am totally disappointed.
Please resolve this issue in next update.Thanks.
Same problem for me after Oreo 8.0 and 8.1 updates ...
Today i got april 2018 security update for my nokia 6 but sound issue is not at all solved,Same hissing noise.I had lot of trust on nokia since from lumia days. HMD are you listening.Please don't spoil nokia name and trust.Please release a fix for sound issues on original nokia 6. Otherwise revert back to nougat rom and release security updates for nougat rom instead of giving us new crappy OS.Hissing noise is really irritating me as i am unable to enjoy movies on dolby atmos with this strange hissing noise. Regarding Sound department engineers at nokia they suck as they don't no how to fix these issues. We need pure noisefree dolby atmos on nokia 6 like on nougat rom. HMD and nokia please go through this thread once,you will come to know the problems related to sound.
Had the volume problem since Oreo 8.0 update. Yesterday's 8.1 update made it worse. The quality of the sound is good, but way too loud. There is very little difference between minimum and maximum volume. When Dolby is switched off, the volume control turns to normal, but then the sound is of course a bit flat.For the time being I will have to leave the Dolby off, otherwise the sound scares me and the people around me every time there is a message or an email coming in.
I have the same issue. My minimum sound levels are unbearably loud. I cannot use my alarm anymore since it is annoying to be waked up by such a loud alarm. And every other sound is also too loud as well. I couldn't hold the phone to my ear while speaking to someone over WhatsApp, I hold it like 5cm away so that my ear was not damaged. By the way, it was very loud after 8.0, but it got insanely louder after 8.1 update.
Today contacted nokia chat Support and I got the Answer as
