I've had my Nexus S for a couple of weeks now, and I keep getting complaints that it's hard to hear what I'm saying during calls. I've recorded some audio thru one of the free voice recorders and it sounded great. Still, I have to frequently repeat myself during calls. Is anyone else having this problem? I'm still within my 30 day exchange window with best buy if I have a defective phone
I'll have to make a call or two tomorrow to see if it's just the way I hold the phone. I was used to the Pre, holding the phone at an angle to keep the mic uncovered. The Nexus S microphone is aimed past the mouth. I don't think I had problems while using my bluetooth. hmmm.
i accidentally recorded a call with my dad (thanks gvoice), and yeah, the volume on my end was very quiet. it wasn't breaking up or distorted, just quiet. if this is a common problem, my guess is that it's a software issue. since i rooted the phone, i guess there's not much of a chance that i can return it and exchange for a replacement anyway. since i repair phones all day, i'm going to go ahead and open it up and see if anything is funky inside.
i attached the recording so anyone can hear the problem.
strangely, i've noticed that this phone and the Vibrant do not have void stickers on any of the screws. quiet diy gesture from Samsung? perhaps.
after opening the phone, i didn't find any problems with the mic housing. i reassembled the phone and used the Hi-Q MP3 recorder to test the mic again. everything sounds fine on the recordings with the app, but it seems like the problem is only happening during phone calls. maybe there are some hidden settings that can be changed.
Any more info on this? Having the same issue. tested with my girlfriends shift and the difference is HUGE in volume! I can't even hear her when shes on mine but it hurts my ear with she talks through hers.
