This bug is mostly related to the "Ok Google" voice detection, it's known since over 2 years. I played around long time ago, because i noticed that my Galaxy S4 ( LOS 14.1, LOS 15.1 ) never had problems with this feature enabled. I replaced the values in build.prop for my Z3C and the microphone doesn't mute anymore during calls.
Changes i made:
for enabled "Ok Google" voice detection without
microphone bugs during calls
# Audio config
# Audio config
for a certified device with the correct fingerprint
for enabled Google Assistant
I provide you my modified build.prop, backup your original build.prop, reboot to TWRP, mount system, and replace the file. Don't forget to set permissions to 0644. Remember, this build.prop is only for the latest release of .:B:.'s ROM, 07/12/2018 i believe.
You must do this in TWRP, advanced - file manager when you use Magisk root solution - replacing the file with a root explorer doesn't have an effect, because the system is mirrored trough Magisk. When you use addonsu ( LOS root solution ) you can replace the file directly with an root explorer.
The same changes can be done on any custom ROM ( Nougat and higher ) for the Z2, tested.
Thank you so much for this fix, I modified the build.prop manually and my phone calls work perfectly now, even when I turn ON the speaker. What doesn't work is phone calls with the Whatsapp app, they can't hear me. Do you know what I can do to fix that?
The time has come, i switched to the official LOS 16.0 for our sweet little Z3C.
I just want to say thanks to you, for sharing your knowledge, your time, and your enthusiasm with bringing Android Nougat to our device. I wish you the best for your future and your real life, and i'm proud to be a part of this great community.
How is the battery duration on LOS 16 compared to 14.1 on the z3c? I have been hearing some people saying it's awful, is that true? I have been wanting to switch but battery duration is very important for me. Thanks!
Battery life is great in official LOS 16.0 - on all my devices with CFWs. Doesn't matter if it's a Sony, a Samsung or whatever device, and it was in LOS 14.1 and LOS 15, all CMs since Android 2.3.7 too. I never, really never understood what a lot of people are doing with their mobiles. In my opinion in 99,9% is a "bad battery life" the user's fault.
Use naptime or leandroid or whatever to shut down WiFi, mobile data and location when your phone isn't in use, use diagnostic apps like better battery stats or gsam battery monitor to find and eliminate potential power suckers. That's all. And your battery will be your friend.
I charge my device during night, going to work, some calls, some WhatsApp, Maps, HotSpot for my navigation device ( SGS4 LOS 16 ), GApps Super installed, 170 apps, Magisk with fbind. During this time - maybe 12 hours - i lose about 30% akku. I'd come 3 days with one charging cycle, but at home i play around with the device, so i must charge at night.
Finally - battery life in official LOS 16 for our Z3C is good as stock. Nothing more to say. :angel:
