I just upgraded to a Samsung Galaxy S4 and I'm noticing a distracting static sound both in headphones and through the built in speaker. I notice it overlaid on the audio itself but it's very faint and it doesnt really bother me. However, it becomes distracting because whenever there is a pause and silence, right before the audio starts up again there is a burst of static leading in.
This is not much of an issue for music but where it really makes a difference is when listening to audiobooks or podcasts because every time someone pauses and starts again the static is very noticeable.
Is this a common problem? Is it fixable? Should I just return my phone to the store for a different one? Thanks!
