Has anyone else experienced audio problems over social media apps such as Skype, Discord, Whatsapp etc with regards to sound quality being received by the other party?
I have just 'upgraded' from an Xperia XZ Premium and my partner who I speak with regularly over Skype & Discord has been complaining about how terrible the sound quality is in comparison.
I have done my own tests by creating multiple accounts and calling my PC from each phone to test the quality and the Xperia 1 II is significantly worse than the XZ Premium.
What made it more interesting, however, is that when I am recording audio directly into the phone via apps such as 'Camera' (to record video) or 'Cinema Pro', the microphone quality is absolutely fine and crisp.
It leaves me with the conclusion that something in the phone is causing these problems when working with these apps and transmitting voice data. The issues include:
- Noise gating which persists even when noise gating is turned off in the app (also wind filter in audio settings)
- Muffled sound with a significant reduction in treble above 4-6kHz
- Unintelligible voice audio when stood more than 2 feet away from the phone
- Occasional squeaks which sound like a quick feedback loop when the other party speaks to me.
All phone audio tests come back with no issues and I've followed tech support in doing factory reset. All they can suggest is sending it off to the repair centre, but this doesn't make sense, the mic clearly works fine when recording directly into the phone.
I was actually so surprised about this phone. Aside from the Xperia 1 II looking and feeling beautiful, the camera quality and audio issues for other parties when using voice communication apps is a real drop in performance. I've basically downgraded my phone and have a regularly irritated partner due to this...
Ali, 06 Jan 2021Thanks brother It means it not hardware issue Camera is ok?? yes... no problem with your camera as per your observation... but you may considering testing macro shot under good lighting condition... test the nearest shot as well, different camera configuration has limitations on macro shots, you might be shooting too near than the limitation of the lens...

Yes it uses infrared for better portrait photos and better background blurr. However its not very useful if you are taking macro shots, especially if you are very close to the subject

It's entirely normal as cameras are more sensitive to infrared than our human eyes.

I've had experiences with Xperia phones and always after 1nyear of usage all of a sudden the phone gets sloppy and slow due to it's piled up caches. I hope Sony had resolved this already by now.

Recently Leaked XPERIA 1 III are different than Previous Leaks but are Interesting as well. But I really don't think XPERIA 1 III is going to have different aspect ratio.
I'm considering switching from an LG V-series phone to this one as it also seems to be audio-oriented. One thing I was wondering was if it also records video with a lossless audio track (24 bit and 48-96kHz FLAC iirc on my LG) apart from all the resolution and fps video specs.
XQ-AT51 is Supported by Indian Carriers besides BSNL and MTNL. Jio should also work(not confirmed). Airtel, Vodafone Idea etc. are working checked.
