Thumbs up Fix for poor video recording microphone quality.

Thanks to AzEBlueDragon at cricketusers for this tip, I tested and the sound quality is a lot better using his method plus the lgcamera app offers more tweaks & settings vs. stock camera.

Did my own comparison yesterday by playing an mp3 on my PC and seeing how well the mercury picked it up audio wise, I placed the phone on my desk and recorded video using the stock huawei app vs. lgcamera, I then extracted the audio into .mp3 format from each video, The difference is pretty insane..

It's amazing to me Huawei chose to use such a poor quality setting even when recording in HD 720p, anyhow lgcamera works for now and I haven't noticed any negatives vs. stock app other than it taking a little longer to initialize.

MP3 format files:

Stock Huawei camera app: Link.

Lgcamera app with AMR_WB encoder selected: Link.

This is good news. It is crazy that Huawei went with such a poor audio format when it wouldn't have cost any more or been any more difficult to use something better. Anyway, thanks for sharing this info with us!
