Asus ROG Phone 2 low mic volume issue acknowledged but there's still no ETA for a fix

Despite the launch of the ROG Phone 3 and ROG Phone 5, the Asus ROG Phone 2 still remains one of the best gaming smartphones to date.

Thanks to the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+, the phone is able to run all the latest games at high-quality settings.

Released in 2019, the phone came with Android 9 out of the box and was updated to Android 10. From time to time, the ROG Phone 2 receives security updates with bug fixes, new features and optimizations.


The June update brought in new features along with VoLTE support and fixed several bugs that had been ruining the user experience.

Having said that, the update also introduced some bugs. One of the most annoying issue Asus ROG Phone 2 users have to face is that their microphone volume has drastically reduced after the June update.

Be it normal voice calls, discord, or video calls, users complain that they are barely audible to the people on the other side.


After the recent update I have been facing this issue. The microphone captures very little sound. I don’t know what the problem is. Everything was fine but after the latest update I have been facing this issue. Even on calls the other person can barely hear me. If anyone knows a fix to it Please share it.

While some say that their microphone works normally when on voice calls, the majority of users are frustrated that the update broke a basic functionality of the phone.

Since then, Asus has acknowledged the issue and said that they will soon fix the low mic volume issue on the ROG Phone 2.

According to an Asus community moderator, there is still no ETA on when the fix will see the light of day.


We hope the ROG Phone 2 low mic volume issue is fixed in the next update since thousands of users are unable to use their phone to perform the most basic task i.e. voice calls.
