no it didnt work

okay, we will have to do a factory restore now. First you will need to be sure that you have your google back up enabled. Open the app drawer, and choose the Settings icon.

Galaxy S5 Settings

In the Settings screen, navigate to the User and Backup section, and choose Backup and reset. If your settings screen is set to tab view, this section can be found under the General tab.

If your Settings screen is in grid view, all you have to do is scroll down the list to find the User and Backup option.

Next, tap the Factory data reset option under Personal Data.

Galaxy s5 factory data reset

This reset operation will erase all the data you have on the phone, including your internet accounts, downloaded apps, app data, system settings, and will revert your phone to its original state. Since the deleted information cannot be recovered, make sure you have backed up all your important data before continuing. Depending on the type of data you want to back up, you will need to use different apps available from the Store to do the task.

When you are sure that it is safe to do a reset, tap Reset device.

reset Galaxy s5

In the next screen, tap Delete all, and wait for the phone to complete the reset operation. The next time the phone boots up, you can set it up as usual.

I am very sorry, this sounds like the internal mic has failed. Since restoring the software via the reset rules out it being firmware-related, you will need to take it to EE to get it replaced under warranty. I am sorry for this, since the purchase date is still around 12 months EE will replace the phone for free. Please let me know if I can help with any of this.
you can:
  • head to any EE store
  • call customer services* on 150 from an EE phone
  • 07953 966 250 from any other phone.
