Any news on the known microphone issue on the ZS600KL since the latest updates? Ive got this problem since a few months now, not beeing able to make phonecalls without speaker mode, nobody is able to hear me when i use it normaly at my ear. None microphone is covert while talking, voice recorder and every other record app arent working. Only bluetooth headsets or speakermode are working. :(


  • Hi larrens87,

    Do you mean the recorder app also has this problem?
    Does this problem appear when calling with WhatsApp/Messenger, or the Phone app?
    Thank you.
  • Yes every App that uses the lower mic seems to be noice cancelled, when i put my mouth directly to the mic slot and talk into it its working very quiet
  • happening to me also, everybody try to hear me when i play pubg with no headphones. they tell me raise your voice.

    same to me also, unless I use headset no one can hear me
  • I'm having the same problem , sometimes it work and sometimes it doesn't work 
  • Same problem here, but mostly on the phone calls, if I record either on video or voice recording app mic works fine, but if I am in a phonecall people can't hear me unless I use the speaker then they can listen to me a little better not perfectly fine. This also happened to me in the last update from December I guess.

  • Same problem to me also.

    It is a software error probably and I hope the Asus engineers will fix it shortly !

  • I can confirm this on phone calls that its sometimes not working. But i think when its getting fixed we already buy a new phone. They are extremely slow on updates because they don't care about us anymore. Its still a shame great phone great specs but extremely poor software support. Waited long for Android 9.0 when 10 already has been rolling out. So i've they will fixed it give it another month the phone is almost already out there life cycle.

  • Agreed I thought this phone was a great idea but I'm getting the Nubia RedMagic 5G this company doesn't take our money seriously so I'm not going to continue wasting my time, my patience and my money on them. As soon as I get the Nubia I will destroy this piece of garbage.

    I also have this problem , few months already

  • Yeah and do not expect a response or a solution they simple ignore us since our phone is not the newest

  • In case of mic not working. Try restarting. It will start working

  • I have the same issue. People can't hear me talk sometimes and I have to connect the headphones. It's intermittent.
