Audio output from my nokia 6.1 became worse after updating to android 10. Volume levels became extremely loud and distorted. The default equiliser app does not function properly. Base and clarity of sound decreased very much.

Also while playing pubg mobile there's a cringy noise through out the game play.

It is the same with device speaker, wired and Bluetooth headphones.

I tried reinstalling music apps and pubg mobile and factory resetting the device but no use.

Hope nokia will fix this ASAP with the next update.


  • All apps making distorted sound issue after updating to Android 10 Update in Nokia 6.1 Plus. Worst Experience with NOKIA.

    Actually that is the problem/bug with that update. Stay tight. Nokia will eventually roll out a fix. It's not like they might be completely ignoring everything.

    Hii Nokia team I am facing sound issue in my Nokia 6.1 after the update of android 10 . Sound starts tickling while playing PUBG GAME AND COD GAME. This only happens while playing game like pubg or cod . I am requesting you to fix this problem ASAP .



  • When will Nokia 6.1 one receive another android 10 uodate, to sort out the sound bug experienced in some games.

  • The crackling isn't the only issue with the sound. another issue I found is that when I plug my phone into my pc using the headphone jack (into pc line in) the phone gets messed up and when the it is connected and the phone outputs sound to the speaker and when it is disconnected there is no sound output. This didn't happen when under Android 9.

    What's new? Was it fixed by any of last updates?

    I suspect it won't ever be fixed. The phone doesnt (technically) need to be, it's now 2yrs old this should have been the last MR for the Nokia 6.1 2018 TA-1050.

    Unless I'm wrong (i hope i am please correct me) the only updates we're going to get for the next year are security updates from google alone not anything from Nokia.

    What is the best guess as to why Android seems so broken in this device, what has actually happened? I'd like to know what you all think or know

    I'm thinking...

    Codecs are being misread (audio bug) 

    File calling is off (slow loading/transition glitches) 

    Certificates (maybe dates have run out/not updated so loading is done differently maybe)


    The thing is...

    Is it Google or Nokia that created the long list of bugs, or a mix of the two? (not important)

    Would it be Nokia or Google that fix the issues everyone seems to be experiencing?

    And will it be fixed?

    No bro the audio will be fixed in the next april security update and the phone will receive updates till 3 years old so yea they will be other updates

    And if not i guess the only way to fix the problem is to downgrade the phone to android pie or oreo that's it guys
