You know those noise cancelling headphones we all got, well as you know they have a mic on each earpiece. well if you put them in your ears and then into the phone a little icon comes up in task bar saying "configure accessory". click on that and instead of headset, choose microphone and then if you record video it records in true stereo and with less hiss than handset alone.
Basically, your headset works as if it is that 30 mic attachment.

Nice info! I only knew it has a mic for taking calls. It's good that it can be used to record video as well. Thanks!

Actually not ALL of us have them, as atleast in Finland we got SmartBand SWR10 instead of the noise cancelling headphones. But nice find nonetheless

Also, you don't have to swipe down the notification bar then click quick settings to get the settings. You can just swipe down as usual, then (keeping your thumb/finger on the screen the whole time) swipe back up but to the right half of the screen and finally swipe back down again and you get your quick settings . Sounds lengthier, but in practice feels much quicker.

Alternative is to just swipe down the notification bar with two fingers.
