    Has anyone with an iPhone X noticed the speaker distorts at full volume?
    Also, has anyone noticed small green dots while recording video?
    Also, when using flash, do you see the flash reflecting off the glass (because it’s all under one glass) in your picture?
    On top of the disaster of getting this thing activated... this is the worst first experience I’ve had with any iPhone.. speaker is garbage compared to my 7 plus and the camera problems are sooo bad..

    So take it back to get swapped as it's clearly massively defective, or keep your 7 plus. Simples.

    Nope. My volume sounds good at full and ssounds louder than my 7 plus. My recordings are pristine and look super sharp. Sucks to be you.

    Haven’t had any problems at all when it comes to quality control on my iPhone X. Was definitely getting worried reading all those threads about defects like bars on the screen, dead pixels near the notch, dust under the camera lens, scratches on the display, et cetera. Only thing is I haven’t tried out the camera in great detail yet.

    Scratchy speaker sound. Difficult to hear while talking on it, very muffled. Hope it will improve.

    Nope. Have had it for almost 48 hours and used for many of those and not seen or had any issues.

    Yours sounds defective. Why don’t you just return it/exchange it?

    Sound is as good as my iPhone 7 plus. Haven't had any hardware problems.

    My speakers are louder than my 7+ .. my flash I just tested, don’t see a reflection but maybe not sure where to look. Can you post a screenshot showing what you mean? Video is perfect and activated quickly no problem. I agree your phone has issues.

    The flash on the back of the X is not underneath glass.

    I have a similar issue with the top speaker on my X. Seems to distort a little.

    No detectable flaws in mine. Got it early launch morning and have been using it heavily since. I love this device.

    OP should’ve titled the thread: “My iPhone X is incredibly bad...is yours?”

    I did see a thread where another forum member mentioned his iPhone X seem very crackly when the volume was Maxed on his iPhone X. And I believe they stated they tested Their 7+ at Max, and the 7+ Was not crackling.

    But then again, I don't know too many people that use their iPhone X at maximum volume frequently either. It's also probably dependent on what type of audio is being streamed as well.

    No quality issues here. My 256Gb Silver is flawless.

    Nope nothing that you’re seeing.

    I came from a 7 plus and I do understand it’s a lil but getting used to, but those are defects.

    Hopefully they are not wide spread and we don’t start hearing more stuff like this as that will make me just keep my Silver and not exchange of the space gray if I decide.

    Most devices will distort when run at full volume, your 7 did, too!

    This was the first iPhone in many years that I haven't been able to spot any defects including the ones listed in OP. I'd return you if I were you.

    (This is coming from someone with extreme tech OCD who would return things multiple times until I got a perfect flawless unit.)
