More often than not if I'm on the phone (I've got an A51) with someone they say my voice is very very quiet and sometimes if I put them on speaker mode despite me trying to control the volume, its stuck on full volume but when I take it off speaker I regain control.
When I record audio as well its sounds distorted and with whatever I'm recording if its quiet enough it seems not to pick up any sound at all and then when there is "enough" sound it'll pop back and its just strange. Its not supposed to do that and I know this because the background ambience noise pops from silent to present during the recording.
I can temperarily fix it by restarting my phone but after about an hour it returns and its been about a month that this has been happening. I'm getting kinda annoyed and my phone was never water damaged my main headphones are Bluetooth and I barely use the headphone jack. Anyone have any ideas whats causing this?
A Samsung Experience Store or Samsung Service Centre can take a look @Lauryn143
There are a number of tests via the diagnostic tool in your Samsung Members App and via going over to your dial pad and type in *#0*#
Current Phone ~
Samsung Note 20 Ultra 5G SM-N9860_256Gb SnapDragon 865+
Samsung One Ui 3.1/ Android 11.
So we'd recommend the above Hardware test for your Speaker tests. Then use *#0283# for testing your Mic.
Select “Start: RCV_1stMic”, speak into your phone like you’re on a call, can you hear yourself talk? Once you’ve done that select “Start: SPK_2ndMic”, talk into your phone like you’re talking to someone on speaker phone, can you hear the playback? Let us know the results.

The speaker test was completely fine. When I did the mic test via the app it replayed my full audio but very very low quality almost robotic sounding and it dips in and out in places. For the keypad mic tests the 1st one I heard one word repeated with the same kind of low quality and then nothing else when I kept trying. For the 2nd mic test I heard no audio at all played back.
