    I've noticed that my S7 has a nasty echo when recording. I originally thought it was because I was inside but last night i recorded outside and its the same. It literally sounds like im recording in a small toilet. Is there a setting i should be looking at.
    I have a lifeproof case but as far as I can tell, the mic is unaffected by the case.

    There are two mics. One at the bottom and another at the top. Are both mics accessible? And how far depressed in the case are they? The case may have making a tunnel effect on the sound, and depending on how you held the phone, it may have an effect.

    The top mic is quite a fair way down in the case so I removed the case. No difference at all. Still sounds bad when i record.

    Ok well it seems my sound settings were set to simulate concert hall. All fixed. What an idiot

    Tongue-in-cheek comment aside, your thread here will help others I'm sure:) Thanks for posting your findings as I wouldn't have thought of that option ;)
