First off I have to turn the volume almost halfway up before I can even hear anything, and in a quiet room too. As I turn the volume up I can hear a lot of static and just crackling noises, I'm pretty sure I received a bad unit :/
Even attempting to listen to the transformers movie I can hardly make out a line of dialog, music sounds terrible as well.
I've been looking around and I haven't seen anyone else mentioning this sort of thing, does anyone else have this issue? I managed to find one video on YouTube comparing the speaker of the N7 with other devices and it sounds noticeably better than mine.
I've just received an email back from the play store complete with custom checkout link to order my new N7 at no charge. Provided of course the defective unit is returned within 21 days, or I'm charged for the new one. they've provided the necessary shopping label to print out and use for the return as well. So here's hoping the new one will be in perfect working order.
