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!
