Motorola G6 speaker issue post Android pie update

2019-03-23, 16:52 PM

The speaker quality has degraded substantially post the update. There is no clarity in the audio. Lots of static interference. 


Audio quality via headphones/Bluetooth is still good. 


Just the speaker output has gone to crap. Even when I play music with 320kbps bitrate it sounds like it's 94kbps.


I am an avid motorola fan. Have owned every single G series since it's inception. 


There are a lot of folks facing this issue 

Please oh please fix this bug.

Hello. It is true, there is something brong in the update, because the audio quality is now poor on MOTO G6 PLUS after android Pie update. Not solved with the last update which brings the last security patches. In particular:

- Much Lower max volume

- Lower clarity of the sound

- Crappy distorted audio when at maximum volume (and this is very bad, since it was perfect with android 8)

I think that this is a huge issue that must be solved very soon, otherwise I'll ask for a refund and change smartphone. I hope it will be solved soon.


PS: I tried everything, also the factory reset. It's a problem introduced by the update, 100% guaranteed.
