Samsung’s Galaxy S7 has a great design and build quality, not to mention the return of key features, including expandable storage, as well as dust and water resistance. However, as it usually happens even with the best with most current devices, they sadly part come with their issues. To help you out, I’ve rounded up some of the common problems that plague Samsung Galaxy S7 and today is time to talk about the Speakers Sound Distorted Issue.
The device has a classification known as IP68, which means it can be submerged in water to a depth of no less than 1.5m for 30 minutes. This means that the handset is also supposed to survive a dip in the sink or down the loo, but you probably don’t want to take it swimming.
Unlike the Galaxy S5, which launched in two years ago, I have to tell you that I love the fact that there are no ugly rubber caps over the charging ports. This time, Samsung has decided to make water resistance integral to the design of the phone, and this mean that all the ports are sealed internally.
These look great so far, but as I have told you from the start, there is a problem that you should know about. There are many owners worried about the fact the speakers sound distorted after the phone gets wet. Some describe how they can hear some sort of a distortion like crackling coming from the speaker, and it happens randomly when they play music or videos and I know that this make you feel uncomfortable.
However, among all the issues that this device comes with, trust me when I say that you shouldn’t worry too much about this one. Galaxy S7 can be submerged in water and this feature could be a lifesaver for the more clumsy among us or for those who want to experiment, but this doesn’t have to mean that there are no consequences.
On the contrary, Samsung’s new smartphone doesn’t always continue to operate just fine after sitting in water (even if this happens only for a short while), so to avoid speaker’s Sound Distorted problem you must wait an hour or two for the phone to dry. After that, don’t hesitate to use a towel or tissue to get rid of extra moisture and be sure that if you are careful, these issues will no longer appear either.
