Galaxy Note 10 Deal: BOGO at Verizon!

    As many of you know, the court ordered HTC to stop using the STM HDR Mic. It since disappeared from the spec sheet for the One. However, HTC was told they could use up the inventory they already had.

    The question is...have they found a new supplier for this type of mic, and will it be included in the VZW version?

    I'm curious about this as well, I almost forgot about that situation.

    This is a make or break situation for me. I go to a LOT of concerts, and while I'm not that guy watching the whole show through his phone, I do like to get a couple good videos at each show. The Lumia 928 has been great for this, but I'm ready to come back to Android.

    I feel ya, man. I'm still using my iPhone 4s and have been disappointed with the way my videos turn out because of the stupid placement of the microphone. So many videos I try to take of my daughter and I always get stuck with shifting muffled sounds (from my finger being there holding the phone sideways) or my breathing being louder than my kid's voice so I'm ready to come back to Android too! I like to go to concerts too and I remember the last one I went to, which was Sevendust, I took like 2 or 3 videos from my phone and the audio was just horrible. Have you found out anything online about the mic situation? Other forums talking about it?

    I found this:

    [Q] HDR Microphone gone from the specs? - Page 4 - xda-developers

    Maybe you can check if it says HDR Video on the back of the Verizon box? I will check when I get one tomorrow and report back if you would like.

    My HTC one box says HDR Video on the backside under camera. Sounds like it has it!

    I do love that HTC actually answers people on their Facebook page. Here was their response to my question...by the way it looks, it sounds like they are not out of the STM mics yet!
