Hi there.

I have the s5mini now three days.

The problem is that my friends understand me very very quietly. In the German thread are many Users who have the same problem.

How is that with you?

Is it not possible to adjust something in the service menu ??

Sorry for my bad English...

Hi,
also from Germany, I have the SM-G800F. I can't confirm your problems, no one complains about quiet voice problems.
Cheers!

I also had the same problem as in the original post so I came here for complaining.
But after trying the needle suggestion above (cheers to the usasha!!) the problem got fixed!!!!
I was about to return it to be serviced, but now I'm so happy with my S5 mini

I used a thin needle and inserted it carefully for 3-4 millimeters, some lint came out.

We have exactly the same problem!

Bought phone and it went to service 3 times in a row. They've replaced everything from microphone to motherboard, even "cleared the mic hole". So, as you can see, we've replaced everything and it didn't get better.

Service even replied that the phone is working as it should. We bought it at the end of august, used it 4 days,.. other days, it was on service.

@greglord: is your last post some kind of a game with finding differences?
Usually this is with two pictures, so I find it very unique using posts instead.

Back to thread topic - I also used needle and now people hear me more clearly than before so thank you @usasha !!

Those who took this advice can say good bye to the water resistant certificate.
All water resistant phones have bad microphone performance!

That's not entirely true, my friends immediately reported that I sounded loud and clear without asking, when I switched back from my G800F to my Xperia ZR, even without them knowing I switched phones. Maybe the sound isn't as good as a non-water resistant phone but it sure can be a lot better than my G800F.

I just got my phone back from the Samsung repair shop, after almost 2 weeks (!). But I doubt they have done anything to fix it because the screen was as smudged as when I brought it there. IIRC well the screen has to be taken out to replace anything inside the phone, or am I wrong?
