    I thought I had a perfect phone, until I heard the hissing. There should be a RECALL immediately! I wouldn't care if it was just a subtle sound you could only hear if you put ur ear to the back. However, this sound gets recorded into any video taken and is LOUD and obnoxious. It sounds like metal crickets/static in the top portion of the back of my phone.. probably an issue with the Intel chip or the new speaker placement.. It literally kills the video taking ability because the sound is riddled with nasty garbage noise... This is a design flaw and Apple screwed up big time. On top of this other people have countless other issues like bad screens, etc. Fortunately I got lucky there.. My brother and every other person I know with a iPhone 7 or 7 Plus have this hissing/static noise issue, along with countless message board posts saying the same thing. I'm returning my phone and waiting for Apple to address this, or I'm going back to the Note 7 as they've fixed the battery issue. They've released a broken product this year. There is no fanboyism here, just realism...

    Just get a replacement, if it persists then return and get your money back. First few batches of iphones are usually the messed up/rushed ones.

    Usually recalls are reserved for safety issues. I'll reserve my judgement about this knee jerk post, but does it pose a safety issue?

    Doesn't bother me. The noise is barely noticeable on my 7. I did a video to check and all I hear is white noise no hissing, same goes for all my other apple devices (iPhone 5s, iPad mini 4, iPad Air 2).

    It's clearly an engineering issue. If I don't get the hiss (which I highly doubt), I'll get a bad screen or whatever else is going on with these iphone 7's.

    Clearly not as much as Apple is paying people on this forum lol.

    The issue does not seem to Affect <3% of the units sold Apple will do nothing but quietly sold it on their own consumers are free to return the product if unsatisfied. No one is forcing you

    And there will be NO recall. That being said.

    I did recently hear the noise watching a famous Youtuber he was recording a trip and Yes it sounds like Metal Crickets captured in the Videos Audio. So it's definitely IMO a returnable issue.

    FYI DO NOT Exchange the device Only do full refunds that way you can Buy and Return Rebuy 5 Phones if you just Do Exchanges Apple Allows 2 don't get stuck.

    How do i know this sound isn't a ticking time bomb waiting to happen? This hiss could be the beginning of something worse.

    I just shot video on my 6 and 7+ of the same subject in my living room. All I could hear when the volume is all the way up is the white noise and the clock ticking. If anything, the 7+ picked up the clock ticking better which means the white noise to sound ratio is better than my 6.

    And everything else is good too, no issues.

    Reading throughout his history, it's clear he's a Samsung fanoby and an Apple hater, to the point of saying that ALL iPhone 7's are yellow screened, and to recommend people a Galaxy phone "by far".

    You mean didn't right? Not trying to be nitpicking but it's just this particular typo means you don't have the hissing...

    Don't be so dramatic, but I guess it's just so that folks will click into your thread; read it and reply right?

    Totally fell for it

    Hey clearly i've been on this forum far longer than you have to be a fanboy of anything BUT apple. However, Apple has slacked off BIGTIME and has gotten lazy in their QC...

    Again, how much is Apple PAYING YOU to divert a real hardware issue with the phone is the real question here... lol

    I doubt you're more then a speck on their radar but no sadly...I wish.

    Are you getting paid? Is that why you're posing this Q?

    Just the verbiage you're using is clearly screaming drama.

    But yes, sure, carry on.

    No issues. Had a 7 for a few days and no issue yet with my 7+. Yellow screen sounds like night shift mode got turned on, doesn't it? Lol

    Again, diverting a real issue.... Apple uses clever marketing nowadays to fool people more than anything. Once the phones are out they don't give two *****. Take the bending phones for example, they actually twisted the situation blaming consumers

    So let's make it real

    Get a list of all the folks that currently is dealing with this issue.

    If it's over 100,000 then it's a good enough number to prove you're talking "fact for recall" and that I'm truly "diverting" by calling out your BS,

    You didn't happen to go to trump university did you?
