Skype and Nexus 4

Hey guys, so I was wondering who else is having problems with Skype on their N4. I know I am because when I use Skype, after about 4-5 minutes into a conversation, my side gets cut off, the conversation becomes choppy, and my friends always complain why they cannot hear me. Our simple fix so far is just reestablishing the call, but that gets annoying (especially since we are usually on a game and chatting). Anyone else suffering problems with Skype?

Kind of a stupid question, but is it hardware failure (like my mic just randomly gives out on Skype) or is it just the app itself?

Try Google Hangout. If you still have the problem, it's likely a system issue. In all likelihood it's a Skype issue. Maybe un install and reinstall?

No issues with Skype here except for high battery usage.

I use Skype for about an hour every day it consumes about 30-40% of the battery.

I have tried that, but still does not work for me. Still get that problem. I am already starting to think it could be a hardware issue because of the person who posted below (Who I am quoting also).

Weird. Are you still using stock ROM or a custom ROM? If a custom ROM, which one? I am currently running on Android 4.2.1 (Stock ROM). I am even attempting to reflash the stock ROM to see if it would be resolved.

Does anyone here use stock ROM? I fear it may just be the ROM itself.

I think your earpiece is broken, you should do RMA.

Sorry, this is a stupid question, but what's RMA?

Also, I'm sure it's not an earpiece defect because it's the mic that acts up while I use Skype. Whenever I talk with them, I'm always using headphones. So I think I should be more worried about the mic.

I'm not going to lie, I had this issue as well on 2 calls with Skype in the past week, but I thought it was an issue with my Internet connection. Now I'm wondering what's going on exactly. Is there any way to test something like this? A faulty mic? How would one go about testing that if it's not a consistent sort of thing?
