Some Apple iPhone 8 and Apple iPhone 8 Plus users report static noise during calls
by Alan Friedman / Sep 25, 2017, 11:56 AM
The static is not showing up when the call is heard over a headset, or if the speaker phone feature is in use. The noise can be heard when using FaceTime, which would seem to indicate that it is a software problem and is not an issue with one or more carriers.
Apple has told those with the static noise to factory reset their phone and use an iCloud backup to set it up. But this has produced hit and miss results. Even exchanging a static-filled iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus for a replacement model hasn't done the trick either. The good news is that Apple is looking into the problem and hopefully the company has news for us about this shortly.
The static is widespread, appearing with Wi-Fi calling and VoLTE enabled or disabled. If you are experiencing the same problem, feel free to tell us about your experiences by dropping us a line in the box below.

I think it's a bit too early to turn this issue into another #gate... It might just be some isolated cases.

trojan_horse Do everyone a favor and please take a vacation from PhoneArena. You are by far the most annoying commenter that has ever visited this website, right before Techixp and DarkIdiot. Please logoff immediately. Besides, everyone knows you are nothing but an Alt account.

I’ve been a member for years and let me tell you... he’s not annoying compared to the numerous trolls that infest the comments section. At least he tries to make a point — unlike those who make banal + illogical + overly hateful comments that leave you scratching your head.

Even review in this site said something similar.. "While engaging with callers, we often observed an intermittent clicking sound coming from the phone's earpiece"https://www.phonearena.com/rev

Soooo, what is A11 processor upto? 4000 in Geekbench single core appears to be a myth. And yeah, Lol with the RAM Management. After watching this vid though, I might actually buy the Note 8. I didn't want to buy it due to the Univisium aspect ratio but the speed is quite good which makes me rethink.

I have a regular iPhone 8 Space Grey 256GB and mine does this. I'm part of a few feeds that are all reporting the same issue. Thousands upon thousands of us are encountering this! Hurry up please Apple! We want to use our phones!
