Sound is distorted on my Moto G5S Plus phone

Moto G5SPlus

basic

Just talk and text


When I talk to someone it is very distorted like the speaker is maxed beyond what it should be doing, yet when I switch to speaker phone I can hear great and it is much louder.

Speaker phone typically uses a different speaker than listening through the earpiece.

That makes a lot of sense as this explains why I am having this problem. Now what can I do to remedy this? I do know that I do metal work as a hobby, The plasma cutter puts very fine metal dust in the air which can collect on a speaker magnet and thus become a problem. Is there a way to access and clean the speaker? why would the one speaker be harmed by the metal dust and the other one not?

Your phone is approaching it’s 4th birthday. Treat yourself to something new.
