Google Pixel Mic Issues

Engadget reports that Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL customers are reporting mic issues on their devices. Google has confirmed that after hundreds of complaints from customers that there is an issue with the microphones that require a warranty replacement. Owners have reported issues in one or more of the three mics built into the phone causing either intermittent audio input issues, no audio input at all, or failure of the camera apps audio recording function. Google is pointing to a hairline crack in the solder and the culprit to the issue.

Once you contact Google and they begin the return process it will begin with Google shipping you a replacement phone. Once they ship the device a hold on your credit card will be placed for the total of the phone, and the hold will be released once they receive your old phone.

Google started reinforcing the connections in the phones back in January so the recent phones should be okay.
