    Don't hold your breath for a fix. My Nokia 6 started having audio leveling issues last year after some Cherry Pie update. It seems it's now only getting worse with the security update. The fingerprint identification stopped working as well.

    Check here: the model has been having issues for a long time and none of them have been fixed:

    While it's not a case of flat-out planned obsolescence, Nokia simply doesn't care about these older models. Shame, as this model was otherwise pretty decent basic smartphone. The constant audio issues that are never addressed but getting just worse, are a sign that I'm jumping back to Samsung. Oh and I'm sure to post this on every forum where this issue is mentioned.

    Thanks Nokia! Shame there's never any fixes to things that get broken. Maybe it's a signal from them that we need to buy a new phone every year? Great business model. No thank you. And this coming from a Finnish person, from where this company originates from...

    No cracking sound issue is not resolved in April security update.But one new problem is overheating while charging and it stopped automatically while charging after overheating

  • Glad to find out I'm not the only one with this issue. I checked with videos and it was working fine but when i play an audio in any app, it becomes distorted. Even if we rollback to Oreo update after updating to Pie, it doesn't change this. So better if you haven't updated in first place, please don't. Wait for next update with a fix, hopefully.

    I too am struggling with telephone call sound from the top speaker on my Nokia 6.1. The phone is almost unusable. A particular concern for emergency situations.

    The fact that the phone works fine with the main speaker or via Bluetooth means that it can only be a software issue.

    How a company with the reputation of Nokia can let this happen and leave it uncorrected for so long is quite beyond me. It is certainly putting me off the idea of buying another Nokia.
