The comment from the reviewer about the voice quality being poor surprised me. I think almost every smartphone out there has more than adequate call quality and reception. I can't see one being called poor on this side except it's a factory defect or something wrong with he handset he reviewed.
I will test it as soon as it arrives in the next days and I will post my experience. Every review said that the voice quality was on par with pretty much everyone else.
My wife just go the Verizon Windows 8X Blue phone(NEW) and this phone has the worst call quality that I ever heard, bar none.
She is at home & work in NJ while I am at work in NY and I really I hate talking to her while on that phone and specially while connecting to her 2012 Dodge Durango's Bluetooth.
For what ever is worth I work as a customer tech support for a company with over 1,500 users and I had never encounter such a bad quality call on any other phone, ever.
Well, something is definitely wrong. I have an 8X on Verizon where the call quality is excellent via the phone or a bluetooth headset. Personally, I would try resetting the device to see if it helps. Otherwise, I would contact Verizon.
Oh my gosh! You have got to be kidding! Call quality is one of the things I like most about my 8X! It's very good! I'm amazed because my experience is so opposite! My husband commented not long after I got it that I sounded so much clearer than on the GNex I'd had before. We're in Tennessee, so don't know if location has anything to do with it, but call quality was really crappy on the GNex. ??
The 8x is a very good phone for calls pocketnow is smoking crack. When im talking to someone on my iPhone 4s (work phone) att I had my brother call me on my 8x iPhone was going dead he said wow that sounds way better have had a few other people comment about it to plus the speaker phone is also great unlike the iPhone/ gnex sound like tiny voices cracking the 8x sounds much more full
