Lenovo Vibe S1 Lite Microphone Software Bug

2016-11-21, 10:01 AM

I have bought a Lenovo S1 Lite for about a month and i think that i discovered a bug related to the microphones:

After a few days the active microphone is the one on the top (for noise canceling). I called myself on the other phone and i slowly blow air on both mics and i could only hear the top one hissing. Also when i speak with other people they tell me that they cannot hear me well. If i restart the phone and do again the test it works fine for a few days.

PS: enabling/disabling the noise cancel from the options doesn't seem to change this behaviour.

They have the crapiest support i ever seen. After you buy their product they simply don't care anymore.
The only workaround i found is to setup the phone to restart in the night. I set it to restart at 3am.

However this CANNOT be considered as a fix, i do it in order to use the phone i paid for.

Such a bug from a company that want to keep a good reputation should be treated with the highest priority because it makes the phone unusable in normal circumstances and the fact that beside me 3 other users want a fix only on this forum, it confirms that this is not an isolated case.

Do you still have the same issue?

I had it too, but 2 weeks ago i found that there was an ota update, i can't find anywhere information about this update, but it seems that it's working fine until now.

Thank you for your reply, but now sadly beside the mic problem, the OTA is not working anymore.

I got the notification about the update for some time, but after the restart is starting updating and then is simply displaying "Error" without any other information. This is happening at about 20% of the update process.

 

Same as for these customers:

I'll suggest a hard reset first and then try with the update or send it back to fix it. It has 2 years guaranty.

Already tried the hard reset (for 4 times), still getting the same error. I will for sure send it back.

Thanks.

The microfone problem came back.

After update it worked fine for a few weeks and then the same again. I restarted it and works excellent but i'm sure for how many days.

I think that i found a solution based on other phone forums with the same issue. I deactivated noice cancellation from the call settings and ok google from google settings.  I restarted the phone and the issue disappeared. It's been a week now without problems. I'll provide update information if something goes wrong again.
