Default Poor Mic Performance?


Has anyone else had problems where people can't hear you during voice calls? It seems like people complain that they can't hear me unless I hold the phone right up to my face.

I have the "official" bumper case, but other than that, nothing special. The phone is from the 14 batch (manufactured 12/12/2013) -- and is running CM 11 M3.

Any thoughts/advice? Thanks.

Don't be a d**k, if you have nothing nice to say - move on (and let the moderators do their job).
Make sure you read posts #7 and #8 on your way

I've experienced this too. People say that they can't hear me clearly.

Saw this thread on Google Forums... People seem to think it might be software related to the noise canceling mic. Doesn't look like there's any fix yet.

Yup. When it works(rarely), it works great with HD voice.

Man HD voice sure is nice.

But I have to sometimes end the call and start over. Actually frequently.

Good thing I don't call a lot of people.
