Samsung Galaxy s4 sound issues

Anyone know if there is a fix for my galaxy s4 sound issue?

Spotify plays but no sound evident unless headphones plugged in.
Same with any other similar application.
I DO get a ringtone if someone calls.
However, if I answer, I cannot hear them unless I put it on loudspeaker (or headphones)
Alarm sounds work.

I've done all the obvious stuff. And spent a couple of hours on Google. No suggested fixes have worked. I don't get why some sounds output fine to the speaker, but others don't.

Failing that, what phone can I get that is a similar spec to the s4, would take the s4 sim and is cheap as chips please? We are a bit skint and have to keep back what savings we have left to be able to put the kids into nursery during some of the Mrs cancer treatment.

I'd say flog it to Game/Cex. I hear Game are still doing pretty decent trade in values on S4s depending on condition ~£90 or so. Maybe they spot the issue, maybe they don't.

Then buy a refurb from ebay with 12 month warranty for £100.

Sorted for £10/£20.

Really good call, never thought of that! Thanks - will hold that in reserve as I have factory reset and it worked (figured I'd have to factory reset before trading in anyway).
