iPhone 8, everyone says my voice sounds VERY muffled
What the heck, man… if I answer my phone and don’t cup a hand right underneath the phone (and shout a little bit) to guide/amplify my voice into the microphones, it seems like anyone I speak to comments that I sound like I’m “underwater” or “a hundred miles away”. This is true no matter what phone company the other person is on (sometimes when you mix CODECs across vendors weird things happen to the sound -but even an LTE call on Cricket to another LTE-enabled phone on Cricket sounds like junk).
Is there any way to test that all of my microphones are functioning the way they ought to? How can I be sure that my phone actually is fully functional, and isn’t part of the problem?
