    Is anyone have a phone speaker problem after the update. I updated a few hours ago and now when make or receiving calls the speaker is just making beeps no voice from the caller.

    What carrier do you use? I'm not certain that really matters but it's a possibility.

    I am on TMobile. But it has been working perfectly before the update.

    Try a reset yet?

    I find resetting after updates to be quite beneficial.. (and people give microsoft crap lol)

    Just installed the update. Before the update, the bottom speaker would rattle/vibrate as soon as you turn the volume up about 3/4 or higher. Best way to test it was to play the Zeta ringtone and it would go nuts.
    Now after the update it doesn't do that, but seems all they did is turn down the maximum volume. It's no longer as loud as it used to be, about on par with my Nexus 6p. The quality is obviously much better, but for a phone that was billed as the loudest on the block, it is not anymore...

    Pretty disappointed and torn, love the idea of the 4k mAh battery and how long this should last, but the bad speaker left a bad taste in my mouth right out of the box.

    Sending it back as I was planning on doing before the update.

    Defective, I feel your pain. I would bet the replacement is just fine, though I'm curious how they're going to handle the lack of volume now. (Even tho it's still ridiculously loud lol)

  16. Ya they def turned down the maximum volume, because speaker phone is super low now it feels like. Anyone else have that issue??

    Also anyone having issues turning down the volume on speaker phone???? It says at one volume when turning up or down after the update.

    Turning Dolby Atmos on and off makes no difference in the sound. What did they even change to it? Did they even fix anything or did they just have it stop running entirely?
     
  18. Actually your right turning it on and off for me does nothing. Hmmmm wonder whats happening. Because it's def affecting call audio. It's super low.

    My speakers crackling are gone, though you can see they lowered volume. I'll upload a vid shortly.
    It's weird, system sounds are much quieter, music on youtube is much quieter, but Netflix is almost as loud, but still quieter.

    I'm not sure what's going on, it would be great if Razer responded. Feels like an attempt to mask a defect? If it weren't hardware, the levels wouldn't change right?

    Still sending mine back though to get another unit. I KNOW pre-update, my gf's phone is perfect.

    Watching generically on the windows sound volume mixer, it looks like the difference is about 20%.

    Yep same here ,phone was loud and Dolby Atmos mode selections or even turning it on made differences. After update it's quiet. Seems like Dolby Atmos doesn't do anything but the static sounds r gone.. before update turning off Dolby got rid of static sound but speakers remained loud.. I wish I could revert update some how.. my only current issues are the speaker volume and can't rearrange the home buttons.. I need that back button on right side..
