    So I have my 6 and 6S sitting here, for whatever reason the 6S is MUCH lower volume wise. Yes I turned it up to max but its still lower and really makes me wonder if there is a speaker issue.

    When I sent a text and you get that small blurp letting you know it sent there is SOME crackle..

    This happened to my 6 when I first got it. Talked to an Apple rep online and they said to do a "reset all content and settings" or whatever. For whatever reason, that solved the issue. Have you tried that?

    I feel like my new 6s has an overall warmer sound, and it's actually distorting / crackling at mid-low frequencies.

    My 6s plus seems lower than my 6. It's not too terrible though. I didn't notice a crackle.

    Phones can vary with the loudness as well as the screen temperature. At the Apple Store today I noticed a huge difference in screens between iPhone 6S Plus phones....some were very warm (almost too yellowish) and some were really cool (blue). The brightness also varied with some being super vibrant while others looked washed out.

    Audio on my first 6 Plus was low but my replacement is VERY loud.

    I have the crackle on the low end sounds..

    Yes plastic film was removed. Disappointed. Thinking of heading up to Akron to check out a 6S Plus tomorrow.

    Decided to spend the extra $100 and jump to a S Plus. No low volume issue however random buzzes on the ear piece
