Poor quality audio from speaker at low volume.

Recently purchased Nokia 5 and have found the speaker output at low volume is hissing and crackly especially on speech (YouTube etc.). Do others have the same issue? Thinking of returning, just wondering if a replacement is likely to have similar issues. Thanks.

Yes, it's terrible. I started a thread about it here: Unfortunately HMD seem to have no intention of offering a firmware fix – it's persisted from Android Nougat and across all the betas of Oreo so far. I doubt it's a hardware issue, so replacing it with another Nokia 5 is unlikely to make any difference. Hopefully your thread will get more attention than mine and the development team will at least pay the matter some notice. Otherwise, if you decide to keep the phone, just keep bugging them about it through the feedback app (like I have).

Yep, same problem here. It's frustrating and seems to be something that would be so easy for the developers to fix.
