Crackling issue with Moto X1

My Moto X1 finally got updated to Lollipop this weekend! A few hours ago, however, I was listening to music through earphones and started to occasionally hear loud crackling noises. I assumed it was due to my worn out earphones, but it continued after unplugging them.

The crackling seems to usually happen when touching the screen, though it is still random. Something else I noticed was that upon activating Moto Voice, it failed with an OutOfMemoryError, so I closed some apps and now things seem to be fine.

Has anyone else experienced this problem? I've been considering a factory reset anyway.

Thanks for your responses, guys. It's good to know that others have the same issue.

Actually, I was wrong about Moto Voice because the issue still happened with Moto Voice turned off, but I haven't heard the crackling since the day I posted this.

I was planning on a factory reset anyway, though, so I'll probably just do that.

The "Mini cards" view in Google Play Newsstand looks quite similar to what the Material guidelines say not to do with cards (see the Feed Reader example). I'm probably not the first to notice this, but is there a good reason for this choice?

When you think about your future multi-million dollar shipping moguls and up-and-coming diplomats, please remember a small handful of them probably received their Ivy League degrees thanks to me.

Gallium melts at 29°C. What are some good uses for metal that melts at a low temperature?

They were going to add a 'LO' at the end, but it got cut due to budget constraints.
The future of communications or a sign of the next internet bubble?

It's literally the most simplistic app out there... including the UI

well, the last paragraph is somewhat disturbing
Protesters in several districts came under attack on Friday from men seeking to break apart their sit-ins, tearing down tents and surrounding demonstrators.
