    Hi people

    I cannot work out if I have a software or hardware issue, but there is an issue. My phone makes little popping noises at the start of some sound effects. Not all throughout the sound file, but at the start and possibly the end of them. Music seems to play ok, but it will s hard to tell as there is usually a lot going on so hard to distinguish if it is doing it. I notice it frequently.


    If it is a hardware problems then I will need to send it back. If it is a software problem I can wait to see if the Portico update fixes it.

    Mine has been popping on the typing sound lately, I've never noticed it before a couple days ago. It only does it randomly and infrequently but it sounds like poo

    So the Portico update fixed it? I meant to add above that I have a Lumia 920. Damn sweet phone, but that popping was a deal breaker. Sorry to hear the HTC guy has the same issue, but at least that fills me with some confidence that this is a software issue.

    thanks.

    Yes I have the Lumia 920, portico fixed that issue, that was a huge concern for me too, now it skips songs without crackling or hissing, and when u take out the headphones it stops the music much faster now instead of playing through the speaker for a second.

    Hope it fixes the pops on my sound effects. Not sure when it is coming to UK Lumia owners though.

    Oh lord! Just tried the Disney game, Where's my Perry. My speaker sounds shocking. Anyone else have this issue? The loading tune is just static!

    Crazy that it affects two different brands. Hints at software issues, but I can't believe it would have signed off with such a major flaw. Jessica Alba never said a damn thing about the popping.

    Hahaha true that, too many bugs, the big one for me is the bottom lit buttons sometimes remain off until I lock the phone and unlock again after portico
