    PLEASE READ THE DETAILS FOR ALL OF THIS QUESTION BEFORE GIVING THE FIRST QUICK ANSWER,
    i have recently purchased the U11 and i was wondering about the use of an external microphone. I have a sony ecm 907 stereo condenser microphone with internal battery. I am using the camera / video app that came with the phone .
    When i plugged it in using the 3.5mm / usb adapter, a dialog box popped up to inform me that the microphone was being installed .... in all cases the microphone is connected prior to launching the camera app.
    i have also tried an electret unpowered lavalier mic but it treats this as a headphone
    But the video app continues to only use the onboard microphones. I have tried front and rear cameras, 3d audio and hi-res audio in all possible combinations.
    Is this simply a limitation of the camera software? or..
    Do i need to use a particular type of microphone?
    Do i need to install a 3rd party app such as Filmic Pro?
    Do i need to change any other settings?
    Do i need to install a patch/ app to get round this issue?

    Most likely your mic has a trs jack (3.5mm with 2 rings), while the HTC U11 (or any smartphone) needs a trrs jack (3.5mm with 3 rings). You can get an adapter, which should work. I haven't tried it myself though, so it would be trial and error.

    Good luck!
