Hi everyone, I bought myself an Amazon Warehouse Pixel 6a during Black Friday. GrapheneOS with sandboxed Google Services has been really reliable for me. I had no issues with banking, navigation, food delivery apps and the like, which I unfortunately need when I am in a different city.
I was in the train and I noticed that my wired headphones with a USB-C dongle were picking up (sometimes a lot of) digital noise from the antenna. The most of it was when 4G was jumpy or low, but also when playing back a youtube video in streaming. The dongle should be fine because it worked fine with other devices (with 4G and not) without any noise.
I don't know if it's related, but also the microphones on the phone capture some buzzing when charging the phone, but with this I can live.
Did you notice anything similar?
I am considering returning the phone, but I have been really pleased with it so far if not for this issue with wired headphones, which I would like to use instead of bluetooth. I fear that this is a design issue rather than a defect, and searching for a new phone after Black Friday is also not the best for pricing.
