I just bought a note 2 international version a month ago..
the phone is fabulous except the fact that the loudspeaker crackles/scratches/distorts at its peak/max volume. I have noticed that sound distortion occurs during
1. low quality audio /video playback
2.during voice navigation
3 . various game plays like angrybirds etc
4.during calls on loud speaker
(note:- and to mention these all audio/videos work fine in my nokia lumia series)
during HD audio video play it is flawless without distortion at max volume!
and yes I have upgraded to 4.4.2 (stock)
is this a software or hardware issue?
any suggestions will be appreciated
