    i even used a sound processor to try to improve the quality and it is still terrible.. it is meant for voices in a quiet environment.. any loud music or noises and your ears will bleed when you review your vid

    It's not the mic's fault. It's the codec Android uses to encode audio. It's 8-bit and only covers 200-3400hz. In other words it's horrible and meant to barely handle voicemails - notice how crappy the voicemail recordings are. This is a BIG oversight and one that can be corrected if Android will build in AAC as the audio codec....then you'll get much better results.

    As stated, the mic doesnt suck. If you use the app Tape Machine, which records in uncompressed wav format, it actually sounds pretty good. The problem for you is you were in a noisy loud concert environment. There are mics that costs hundreds of dollars that cant get a good sound out of that loud of an environment.

    I used Nokia E51 to record concert videos before. Video was bad, but sound was awesome, no matter how loud environment was. It was great for recording live performances. I never had any kind of distortion, check - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mbrpq8ZK41o . Samsung Galaxy S has awesome image quality, but sound is just plain horrible. Does Android have any kind of automatic gain control on recording channel? It's a basic functionality any video recording device have to have!
