Hi.

 

It should be stereo. How are you determining that it is not?

I had to try it on my One Vision even though I never used FM radio.

I must say that it indeed did sound a lot like mono.

I can clearly hear the stereo separation in FM radio with the same headphones on my Motorola one (XT1941-4) but it's just not there on One Vision even though it indicates stereo.

So what to do now?

I did a recording of the radio, put the file on my PC and loaded it in "Audacity". There I could see that it's not stereo at all. It's dual mono. No stereo separation at all. I'm attaching an image from the FM recording compared to a stereo recording where you can see the stereo separation.

 it is unbelievable that you cannot Radio Fm stereo in 2020 on a smartphonesthis is probably why these phones cost little because they have poor quality components like the FM mono radio chip 
 I have a 12 year old phone Sony Ericsson R300 Radio It has stereo fm radio with RDS and those from Motorola are not able to make a stereo Radio on a smartphone released in 2019 it"s incredible

If that's a hardware issue, it kinda sucks, indeed.

 

As I said in one of my other posts, I try to keep an open and positive mind. So I hope it's not a hardware issue, and it's only a software bug. But I guess we'll see.

 

If anyone else tried the FM Radio on their device, and they have Android 10 already (which we're still waiting for, by the way), it would be interesting to know if they have the same issue. 

 

Also, does anyone know another real FM Radio app we can try instead of the stock one, to see whether or not this is a hardware issue? Cause I could only find online radio apps, promoted as "FM Radio". Which is definitely not the same thing and it doesn't help in this case.

I'm just a human being human.

I'm sure this isn't hardware limitation, but a software bug. I don't think I've owned even one phone with only mono radio.

And yes, I'm on Android 10 on my one vision.

I spoke to Moto Support and they confirmed this is not a hardware limitation. It does look like a software bug though.
