HTC One, released in February this year is HTC’s flagship device. It has a quad-core 1.7 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 32 or 64 GB of storage, a 4.7″ 1080p Super LCD 3 display with 468 ppi, a 4 MP “Ultrapixel” camera and a 2300mAh battery. It also has Blinkfeed, Zoe and Boomsound features which gave it an added punch.
HTC promised a better phone call sound quality but this was not seen in the device. If the phone is moved at certain angles while on call, the person on other side of call wont be able to hear the sound clearly. This is because the noise suppression is enabled by default. XDA developer grgsiocl has created a mod that will disable the noise suppression. Follow the instructions given below to disable noise suppression.
Note: This mod has been successfully tested on stock deodexed Android 4.2.2 and Android 4.3 ROMs. However it might not work on all the ROMs. Also, do not try it for other carriers or variants.
