    Try out a camera app called 'Open Camera'

    In video settings under Audio Source check 'optimised for voice'

    I tested this in a dead quiet environment and there was zero static.

    I thought of trying other video taking apps to check out their settings when I used a voice recorder to test out the mics, and during silence there was no static. So the Pixel 2 XL is capable of recording clean audio, you just have to direct it there.

    Anyways, Open Camera seems like a pretty good app in general, no ads and open source I think.

    It's only helpful for those who have static on video recordings.

    I tried another Voice Recording app that let me choose between Main and Rear microphones. The main microphone is deathly quiet, the rear microphone setting had the same static as the video recordings. Oy

    Stereo recordings both in open camera video recordings and in voice recording apps also are nice and quiet
