Just got my Verizon G3 yesterday. I have it rooted and have Xposed and G3 Tweaksbox. I don't think I froze anything that would have to do with the mic/speakerphone.

When my speaker is on, my mic doesn't work.

Mic works fine otherwise, so it can't be a hardware issue.

Any ideas?

I disabled all xposed modules and unfroze all apps and same thing.

Can someone confirm they don't have this issue on a Verizon phone?

I really don't want to factory reset already.

Could someone just test this out and let me know if you don't have the issue?

Just make a call, turn on the speaker and see if the party on the other end can hear you talking.

Be best if it's someone with a Verizon phone.

If it works for someone else on Verizon, I guess I'll go with the factory reset. The phone has only been out a few days, I guess it's possible it's a bug and I'm just the first person who noticed it, but I doubt it.

I did a factory reset and it's still not working.

I did take off my case and now there's some audio, but it's all a low static. I call a vm I have and start talking with speaker off and it's fine, then I turn speaker on and I get all static and hissing and can't hear myself at all.

I don't see how it could be hardware, but I guess it's possible. Sure seems like a system bug, but someone in the Verizon forum reported it's working, so I guess not.

Flashed back to factory image and same problem.

I guess it's my hardware.

Replaced phone today and all is good. I guess defective hardware.

It must have a different mic for when using speakerphone vs when not.
