matgzx Level 1 Level 1
Hi, I have my iPhone4 32GB with iOS 4.1, it is new with just like 5 days of use, when I record videos and then I watch them on my PC the volume is really low, I'm comparing the volume with videos taken with my iPod Touch 4th gen and there is a big difference.

When I record videos with my iPhone 4, there is sound, but in a really low volume level, I don't know how to fix this, maybe a future software update could fix this? or what can I do? By the way, I'm using a hard case and it has all the right holes for microphones and ports.


iPhone 4, iOS 4, 4.1

    Make sure you're not covering the mic on the bottom of the phone with your hands when you hold the phone.

    Hi, I'm not covering the microphones, I've noticed that the top microphone is the one that records the videos sound, when I cover that microphone the videos results silenced, I tried covering the bottom microphone but there is still audio, so I've determined that the top microphone is the one that records the videos sound. But I did the same test with the voice recording app and is the opposite case, it records with the bottom microphone and I think it does that at higher volume, so maybe I think the top microphone is not very receptive, I don't know how to do to record videos with normal volume, .

    Me, or better my wife, has the same problem.

    When making a video it record sound but very low volume.

    On my own Iphone4 there is no problem.

    Also we do not put our finger or cover on the microphone.
