Default So my moto x's microphone just broke?

Yeah she was fine for a week.... then after work Sunday it just failed.
No touch less controls, no google now
People can't hear me in calls unless I scream and even then they just great noise

:/

And now I must go a week or two without a phone?

Ugh...

I may go and just buy a nexus 5 just to not wait... But I've really loved my Dev edition.


Any one had this problem?

I was putting my screen protector on and I guess the solution got into the mic. It wasn't working for a few hours. I also had to scream at it to get it to work.

Yeah I'm just returning mine, I don't have 7 days to go missing work calls :/ , in the mean time I'm going to buy a refurb Nexus 4.

Freaking pathetic that the mic breaks after a week.

Does the phone fill with the water? Perhaps it's the problem.

Once my phone was taked in water, and I used hair-dryer to make it dry. then it works well now.

I had the same problem, but I had my X since November and all of the sudden it went bad. People couldn't hear me on calls, no Google now either it was just dead.

Went to Verizon store they checked the phone and decided to send me a replacement.

I got my replacement 3 days later and guess what FREAKING same problem with the replacement phone, it came with a broken Mic. Went back to Verizon and now they are sending another replacement. I don't know what's the deal with the microphones. For me it seems that the opening it might be too exposed to dust and with time this gets into the mic. I might get my replacement today.
