[Blowgate?] Galaxy S8 and Note8 also have muted microphones that can be fixed by blowing into USB/mic area

Lately, some of you have been expressing your displeasure about the amount of Pixel 2-related issues we've been reporting on. These issues have been brought to our attention due to the sheer amount of enthusiasts who purchase and use these phones. But make no mistake about it - while the Pixel 2 and 2 XL have been having some issues that shouldn't be present on phones of this caliber, other phones have similar(ly hilarious) issues. Case in point: two of Samsung's newest flagship phones are having the same muted microphone issue that can also be solved with a Nintendo-style blow.

OnePlus touts improvements to OnePlus 5 audio recording in loud environments

OnePlus is one of those companies that likes to slowly tease their products before releasing them. When you think about it, it's pretty clever; fans get more information, and OnePlus gets more coverage. The latest tidbit that OnePlus has 'leaked' about its upcoming iPhone 7 Plus clone is regarding its audio recording quality, specifically in noisy environments. However, it doesn't seem as impressive as the company is trying to make it seem.

Some Pixel and Pixel XL owners experiencing failing microphones, Google recommends warranty replacements

When the customer threads over on the Google Support Forum start to get hundreds of replies deep, you know there's a serious problem afoot. This one is affecting the Pixel and Pixel XL, and apparently occurring to a large enough subset of owners that Google is taking its response more seriously than the usual bug. Owners are reporting complete failure of one or more of their microphones, sometimes causing a total audio input block, sometimes occasionally working with the camera app while recording video.

Many Nexus 6P Owners Are Reporting Microphone Problems, May Be Related To Noise Cancellation; Google Is Investigating

Are the people you call with your shiny new Nexus 6P saying that they can't hear you? Then you might want to check out several threads on the Google Product Forum and XDA-Developers. A common problem among early adopters seems to be weak and spotty voice quality - that's the voice of the Nexus 6P owner, not the other call party. At the time of writing, several dozen owners across the two sites are reporting very similar problems, both in standard call mode and when using the speakerphone. Google representatives have responded on the official forum, and say that they're looking into it.

Some Early Cases For The Nexus 5X Cover The Primary Microphone

This generation of Nexus phones is having some teething troubles, or at least the accessories are. A few weeks after the first batch of Nexus 6P cases appeared to block the laser auto-focus module on the rear of the phone, some early cases for the Nexus 5X are showing similar problems. Redditor Brucensb showed off a photo of a Spigen-branded Ultra Hybrid case that completely covers the microphone on the bottom edge of the phone, the primary mic used when making a call. Oops.

According to the comments (which we can't independently verify) this is a problem with early cases from many popular manufacturers, including Diztronic, Cruzerlite, and Verus.

Upcoming SingStar App Will Let Players Use Their Smartphones As Microphones On PS3 And PS4

WARNING: The following Android Police story contains Carly Rae Jepsen's Call Me Maybe.

Music games are great for parties with close and consenting friends who won't judge you when you completely destroy that one riff in Down on the Corner. But they do have one failing: you can't play them without all the plastic instrument accessories, making spontaneous sessions at a friend's place something of a chore.

The creators of Sony's SingStar series have found a solution that will make you say, "why didn't I think of that?" The forthcoming PlayStation 4 edition of SingStar probably won't change the karaoke game's winning formula, but it will let you install a companion app on your Android phone and use said phone like a tiny, rectangular microphone.

[Bug Watch] Nexus 4 And Nexus 5 Suffer From Extremely Low Sound Levels On Headset Mics, Fix Coming Soon

We all use our smartphones differently. Some people rely on them for web browsing and apps, some for texting, and many of us still resort to making calls, you know, when we have to. Even within those categories, several patterns emerge and certain habits and practices have been developed. Many of us have long since abandoned using wired headsets for calling, but a lot of people still prefer them to keeping Bluetooth headsets charged or holding a 5-inch phone against an ear. Unfortunately, these simple wired accessories can also be plagued by bugs like anything else, and both the Nexus 4 and 5 seem to suffer from a pretty big one.

[Bug Watch] Some Nexus 5s Can Suffer From Terrible Audio Quality During Calls And Recordings

We've all heard the story before. A brand new, very popular device rolls out to the public and everybody hurries to get their hands on it. Shortly thereafter, people start to notice some of the more serious issues that degrade the experience or even make the gadget unusable. When that device is a phone and one of those issues is audio quality during calls and recordings, people can become justifiably angry. It seems this is exactly what's happening with quite a few Nexus 5 owners, as audio going into the built-in microphone is plagued by hissing, popping, loud static, and very low volume.
