    Default How to clean those pesky speaker grills.

    Is anyone finding that their speaker holes are getting clogged up with dust and bits?

    How do you find is the easiest way to clean them? I've tried sticky tape and a tiny tiny needle to flick out the dirt but so far neither is work

    This happened on the HTC one x for me, I scrubbed the ear piece with alcohol wipes...eventually gave up and could no longer see the notification led after 2yrs of use

    I've heard of people using scotch tape or something similar and rubbing it with a finger/fingernail to kind of work it into the holes a little, then peel it off and it supposedly removes most of the junk.

    I don't have anything in my speaker grills, nor did I ever on my m7. I've heard of people using a toothbrush on the m7 to clean it out though. I'd be careful with whatever you do, you don't want to damage anything and void your warranty

    Haven't had a problem so far but maybe silly putty or something similar pressed lightly against it.

    I use double-sided tape to clean the nooks and crannies of the phone. Works good.
