    Weird Android phone speaker / mic problems

    So my trust Wileyfox Swift 2x microphone stopped working. Works fine using earphone mic.

    I disabled mic permission for Google. No dice.
    Did factory reset. No dice.
    Installed phone doctor plus. Says hardware is fine.

    Handset speaker has now stopped working. But if I do phone doctor plus test, I can not just here the test noises but it also allows any open app e.g. radio player to put sound through speaker.

    Any ideas from anyone vaguely sober?

    Have you tried turning it off and on again?

      That's a component of factory reset.

        Classy.

        Can I just go over the errors in the way you have described this issue...

        Half way along you say "has now" so we have to discount anything you have said previously.

          Probable user error.
          replace user and press any key.
