HTC One (M8): Strange issue with WhatsApp
I just purchased the M8 this week after finally being eligible for an upgrade and this is my first android phone.
Anyway, the first thing I tried was to use WhatsApp to record audio messages with a friend overseas, but there is some strange problems. Firstly, since you have to press and hold down on the icon to record a message, I have to literally put the phone right in front of my mouth and talk slightly louder than I would if I were having a conversation sitting at a table for the opposing end to hear me on their phone. If I hold the record button and talk as if I were holding the phone in my hand to read something, I'm barely audible on their end. However, I tested this the voice recorder and held it against my mouth and away and the playback seemed fine to me...
Another issue that's WhatsApp related is also quite strange and I don't know how to fix it. If I listen to an audio recording with the phone as if I'm taking a phone call, the audio playback is like speakerphone. However, if I listen to the recording with the phone away from my face, the audio only comes through the receiver as if you were taking a private phone call. It's like the reverse of what should happen?
Anyone offer insight on what's going on? Is my phone defective or do I just not have the settings correct?
