Fixed: Xiaomi Mi 4i Speaker Problem

Today i got weird problem with Xiaomi Mi 4i speaker/loudspeaker sound. It seems got a  lot of noise and the sound doesn’t feel right. But if i set to lower volume, the sound get better but still i could notice that something wrong with this.

Going around android and xiaomi sites and forums almost half-day, mostly people said that is the hardware problem and need to go for service center which i know i need to spend some money on it until i found the post from a really good guy who save my day Charan_with_mi which his post at MIUI Forum suggest to do hardware/speaker calibration and magically it solve my problem. Thanks man!

Here is the steps for you:

  1. Go to Settings apps from your Xiaomi Mi 4i device.
  2. Select About phone menu.
  3. Quick multi taps on Kernel version menu, you will open Hardware tests page.
  4. Select Speaker PA Calibration Test.
  5. Tap Calibrate button and done.

If this steps doesn’t fix the problem then you may really need to go to service center. Good luck!
