Default Mic hole

Hi guys,

I bought my Gnex last year and have some issues with the mic. Nobody heard me very well during the call. So I decide to disassembly my phone and clean the mic. I was surprised because the hole of the mic don't "cross" the case of the phone.

I can see this tiny hole in the external side but can't see it on the internal one. It's normal ? I am not an expert in this kind of field but I suppose that this hole must cross all the case phone.

Thank for your help.

On the bottom partyou should see a bigger piece than the rest if al the boards. Take that off (You have to ubscrew one screw first). Theb when the piece comes off. You should see a white part. Make sure thats clean. Now back to the phone itself. Look at the usb port. To the left of that you should see a squire like thing. Thats the mic.
