    That sounds awesome. I'm really hopeful when I pick mine up tomorrow that it'll sound like this. My previous two have been TERRIBLE.

    I returned my Black iPhone 7 Plus because of this issue almost 2 weeks ago.
    Today, I got another one - Silver this time. It seems I got another week 48 one. I've uploaded a video so you guys can help me determine how bad this one is, haha...

    Are you still within 14 days? This is more of hardware problem.

    I just opened up my unlocked 7 Plus and it does the same crap as my other two. I'm done. It's going back. You could hear the buzzing and clicking in videos with sound even.

    Me too I got my jet black iphone 7 plus right before Christmas and it does that too. I wish I would have had it sent back, but I fell in love with it. Then I deep scratch on the screen happened and shouldn't have happened so easily. Very soft screens so be careful and get a cover for it first. I didn't get a chance.

    Do you think it's pointless for me to try? Swapping?

    I'm with my 7th substitution, so I'm really bored of all this. If you have swapped only a few times, then try once more.

    My launch Verizon matte black 7 plus had the noise coming from the back and was audible in video recordings. I received a replacement shortly after launch, only to have the same thing. A co-worker had the gloss black AT&T 7 plus that didn't have any noise. So, I lived with this until I recently picked up the new Red Verizon 7 Plus and I hear noting from the back. Seems like they resolved this issue. I don't know if it is coincidence, but the new phone feels more responsive than my original 7 plus and I always seemed to have issues with raise to wake on my old one, but the new one is working flawlessly. I was always one to get the iPhone on launch day, but now I am starting to think it may be better to wait. I may wait out this years release until they work out any issues.

    Yes, the red color paint makes it snappier and corrects the raise to wake issue:D
    BTW my Matte black release date i7 plus doesn't have neither of those issues.

    Hmmm, I never thought the "red paint" or to be correct the red anodized finish would make the phone snappy and eliminate the buzzing/static. Who knew. I thought maybe something internally was tweaked/changed/corrected, but I guess I was wrong. Maybe the red anodized finish acts as an insulator to block any internal sounds from reaching the outside. Maybe they included some metal flakes to help with antenna transmission to make wifi, bluetooth and cellular connections run faster. Wow!

    I think Apple knew Bout it and just fixed it. I don't think it has anything to do with colors.
