    I'm not confident Google is going to fix the horrible "tinny" sound of the audio recording, since they've pretty much described it as an intentional feature. But I'd imagine if it would be more likely for them to make potential adjustments if they receive a lot of negative user feedback. So are those of you in the android central community providing such feedback?

    Does yours sound similar to SUPERSAF's and other youtubers and you just don't mind it or does yours not have that tinny sound?

    Playing back movies or You Tube videos sound fine to me. However IMO when recording video the audio could use some help.

    Doesn't sound tinny to me.... Not saying it's great ... Just don't find it a deal breaker. The best audio recording I've heard is on LG devices.

    I do hope they fix it. I am still stunned by how bad it sounds.

    I hope they fix it also, however it definitely sounds better than my experience with the 2XL which had a lot of hissing especially during quite moments. My 3XL doesn't do that.

    They never fixed that hissing problem, nor did they fix the auto focus issue on the Nexus 6. I agree hissing isn't the issue on the pixel 3, but you still can't hear ambient sounds in quiet scenes. If Google does fix the audio issue, which I'm doubtful of. I'd consider getting one again off Swappa or eBay later once the prices drop a bit.

    I'm not sure what you mean by SUPERSAF's, but it sure is an improvement over the single bottom firing speaker in my Pixel 1. Sure, it doesn't produce the bass of my Bose home stereo, but it sounds good to me.

    Your improvment from the Pixel 1 is because the audio output has improved. I believe the concern everyone is pointing out is recording quality

    Popular YouTube reviewer. The sound of the audio in his video (and a couple others I have seen) is quite poor IMO.


    It seems for some, including Mike Dee, it is not quite this bad. I really want the camera of the Pixel 3 (XL), but I enjoy recording my kids (and the occasional brief live music clip), and I feel if it's anything close to as "tinny" sounding as some of these videos I have seen, I will find it quite annoying when playing the videos back.

    Don't they have an on board DAC or something?

    That would only impact output and not input (i.e. audio recording) though, no?

    I believe you are correct. Not 100% positive.
