    Hey guys, I was plugging my phone in earlier, and I noticed a little pin-sized hole to the right of the charger hole on my phone....it kinda looks like the reset hole on an old game anyone know what this is for?

    What about the one on the top? My mate had an iphone before and tried to open the sim card tray by putting the pin in there and pressed before he realised his error!!! He's now worried that he's damaged something. Has he?

    As stated above, small (not 3.5mm) holes are typically condensor mics. Some devices have one, some have two. They may be the size of a pin, but inserting one to prove it is generally a bad idea.

    Well, what does poking a relatively sizeable hole in a microphone do? It may effect the voice quality on phone calls at the very least.

    Hey my friends told me that its some sort of hole that let's you to reset your device by inserting an ordinary pin in it. I think they're trolling me but please can you tell me that does this type of thing exists?

    Yes it exists, but generaly only on Tablets. It is nothing special. You just use it if your device isn't responding.

    Sooo, I have a p10 lite, and like most phones it has a mic on thr bottom of the phone next to the charger (sadly not type c on the lite version), and it also has another hole that looks the same, but it's on the top of the phone next to the headphone jack. So my question is what is that hole??
