Re: Android 9 Pie Sound Issue

Is there any fix for this? I'm not really looking into Q solving this as XZP, XZ1 etc that launched with Nougat would have low chance on getting 3 major OS updates, but well I guess mine isn't that prevalent yet. In fact, I just noticed the existence of this problem today.

I watched a 2 hours movie with the front stereo surround enabled and had a very immersive time in fact.

Build 47.2.A.10.80

Now I need to check more whether mine is afflicted or not

Re: Android 9 Pie Sound Issue

I have been using Sony XZ Premium for almost 2 years now.

 

Bottom speaker is really low when playing music. I tried safe mode it's the same.

 

Also when I put the phone on speaker during a call, only bottom speaker works and it's volume is very low I can't hear anything. 

 

Isn't there a solution for this?

Re: Android 9 Pie Sound Issue

Hi everyone 

 

Experiencing the exact same issue, and have also tried all the recommendations mentioned, however while playing around, at one point I covered the light sensor at the top, and applied some pressure, suddenly the sound returned to the speaker at the bottom, but soon as I released pressure it disappeared again. Very strange, could the light sensor somehow dim the sound of the speaker? Anyone else able to recreate the problem? Or could the be a hardware issue on my side?

 

Looking forward to sony solving the problem, big fan here, everything from car audio, console, phone etc is sony, will be a disappointment if they do not resolve this.
