just saw the code and thinking the standard recorder samples for phone calls at lowest bit rates which makes for tinny result when played back through an app with stereo expectations.

This test sounds like 3GP not MP3.

Completely understood @Black73Cat and that's why I suggest that it's just part of the Android investigation ;-) My first test.. I shall try other devices also.

Yeah, I appreciate that and I apologise if my last comment seems a bit ranty...that's not my intent. I'm merely trying to say that it can't be a problem with any of our devices, other than compatibility with the VB app. At the minute, I'm quite happy to upload MP3 recordings from the website, it's a simple enough process and there's not as much degradation. You know that I've always loved the functionality of the App, so a little workaround doesn't bother me greatly. It would just be nice to have parity with the Sainted iOS devices for once ;-)

Well I promised I would try to test some Android devices @Black73Cat and this was the first one I could get my hands on.. It's all part of the investigation process of course.

I'm not technical at all but it must be a compatibility issue with the newer devices. no way does a 4yr old Samsung which is renowned for poor build quality, have better hardware than my brand new Z3. If that was the case, every MP3 that I recorded in any I platform would sound ropey. yet I have no problems with quality anywhere else, including recording outside of the App and uploading via VB website. :-)

Hi Graeme @Black73Cat this was recorded on the Android device using the VoiceBo app. I borrowed it from a guy I know that I ran into at a restaurant for the test. It is certainly not as smooth sounding as my iPhone, but no issues on the volume output as you can hear. @ernmander too ;-)

was that recorded and sent from within the Android app or sent as an MP3 via the desktop app?

For all the Android users, this was a test as described on an old Android S2, which obviously has good hardware. I didn't notice any lack of quality from the recording to the playback test through to the audio quality of the published VoiceBo... Any thoughts? @ernmander @Black73Cat @sm2n @topgold @omaniblog and @PilgrimChris etc. And folks, if there are others here you know of that are using Android, might you give them an @ USERNAME mention. Thanks.
