    Here is a vendor's picture of where the various carriers placed the microphone for speaker phone use.
    Your case must be made for your carriers phone or modified to work with all.
    If you are not using a case, then you may have a hardware issue.
    Good Luck!

    Okay so I have the replacement phone setup. I made 2 calls via the speakerphone in both people said I sounded better. So maybe my first Note 4 unit was just defective. I'm going to try using the speakerphone for a couple days test it out and see what the results are.

    I used the speaker phone about 3 or 4 times today and every time I used it it was fine people said they could hear me just fine. I do think my first unit was defective. I'm going to test the phone for a few more days and I'll post again here

    can you provide another update? I have same issue and just got the phone 3 days ago. I am a consultant and use it every day and need to be sure it works as I am speaking to clients constantly. If you are still having luck with the new one, I will also ask for a replacement. If not, its back to Iphone....

    Is the replacement still working as it should? I'm also very worried about this as I just ordered my note 4.

    I just registed to the site as I too (on Verizon) am having the same issues with my Note 4; purchased the first day it was released for Verizon from Best Buy. Speakerphone is extremely important to me and am in disbelief that a product would have rolled out like this but it appears that this might be the case. Coming from Apple, Note 4 (imo) more attractive compared to the iPhone 6 Plus, and having an issue like this out the gate is making me highly regret my decision. Nothing I can really do about it now but should this be the case, damaged speakerphone mics and not Verizon, it will definitely be a lesson learned.

    Original poster, is the new phone perfect or has the issue started back up?

    Thanks!

    Hey guys. I'm still getting people say from time to time they can't hear me on this replacement phone. I'm really starting to think there is a design flaw with the Note 4 speakerphone. I'm getting highly frustrated with it since I use speakerphone for a lot of calls.

    This is a hardware flaw. If you look on the bottom of your phone,where the charging port is, there are two small holes. Those are the microphones. What you do is take a small pin or paper clip or whatever and try to clear out those holes. After that, try going to voice recorder or Google Now and see if there is a difference. People should be able to hear you crystal clear now. The only problem is that I have been having to do this like once a week. I wish Samsung made larger microphone holes or something on their phones!

    Does anyone have a problem with people saying they cannot hear you or your voice is garbled and crackly when you use the speakerphone for calls? I've had 3 or 4 different people tell me in the past two weeks when I use the speakerphone its all garbled and sounds like an AM radio. Is anyone else having this issue? I restored the phone tonight but its still giving me the same problems, the speakerphone just sounds really bad on the other end for the listener. Strangely I can hear their voice is just fine. Any thoughts would be appreciated thanks!

    One time a friend couldn't hear me on hangouts but could on the phone which seemed strange, but a reboot fixed it. I seem to remember reading it's got two or three separate microphones.
