My current phone is a Moto G 2014. The stereo mic and speaker is a really nice thing. I know Motorola unfortunately changed the G 2015 to Mono output. Did this happen to mic too? This detail is really seldom mentioned in technical data.

If somebody just wants to test: To record stereo on the G 2014 you need some app that identifies a camcorder if I understood right. Most apps are not capable to record stereo. It works fine using the Titanium recorder when recording mp3. Or just use the internal camera and record a video.

Thank you in advance!

Moto G 2015 have 2 microphones, one in the bottom speaker hole and the other near the 3.5mm jack. This is for noise cancellation.

Thank you for the answer - this makes hope that stereo recording could be possible. Could someone test it please?

Start Titanium recorder recording mp3 or the default Motorola Camera recording video. Speak "Left" in the left speaker and "right" in the right. Connect headphones and replay the result, carefully listening if the sides can acoustically be recognized.

Thank you in advance!

Yes, i have tested and the app records in stereo, just enabling stereo recording in settings.
