Problem with audio when recording video
In my experience with recording video, and with some testing I've done, it seems like the microphone doesn't switch over to "speakerphone" mode, and only picks up audio very close to the microphone pickup at the bottom of the phone. So, if you're trying to record people in a room, something outside, the noise cancellation won't kick over to "speakerphone" mode, and will cancel all of that out, and will only pick up audio directed right into the microphone.
Is this a software bug with either Android or HTC's / Sense's camera? Anyone else experience this? Phone calls and speakerphone seems to work fine, but I noticed this this weekend when trying to record video outside.

If I can't find a fix for this, it will be going back.

Just curious, but I was trying to record my guitar amp to test the sound quality and it was laying face down on my bed recording and it was extremely muffled sounding when I listened to it in my car using the headphones jack. I realize this isn't the best way to position the phone, but where is the Mic exactly and where do you guys think I should put the phone to record?

Finished talking with a Verizon tech support rep a while ago, said they couldn't find anything about this problem in their systems, asked the general questions of "did you turn the sound all the way up, recording with sound, etc", then told me the best solution would be to go into the store and have a tech guy there try to fix it and if not, they would replace my unit.
