How to Decrease Audio Latency on GSM Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S
An issue that Android users face users is long-standing of audio latency, this issue isn’t for the every users but an bug none the less, those of you who use the apps like Skype or VoIP will notice this issue. If you don’t know about this issue, audio latency is a the gap between an audio event being triggered and the voice emerge from the speaker of your Android device like when you press a button on a piano app and notice the gap between touching the screen and hearing the voice, this is what I’m talking about latency.
Firstly we heard about this issue at 2011’s I/O and Google’s Android Chief said that latency is very big issue for you so we’re trying to fix this and we hope that we’ll do something about this issue with the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. It’s bit difficult, on so many Android devices this issue gets introduced. In fact the issue gets introduced in the drivers or in the chipsets. He said that they’ll fix the issue in next release but the release didn’t get the fix and users still suffering the issue.
But if you own a Nexus S or GSM Samsung Galaxy Nexus, you should not worry now, a fix for you is now available, you can improve the audio latency now, say thanks to hardworking guys behind XDA Developers Forum, in fact, developers developed a Mod that is a modified version of respective audio libraries.
The Nexus S Mod has had more hours put into and works better than the Samsung Galaxy Nexus but don’t worry both works fine. Keep in mind that it doesn’t work on every ROM and kernel so you should check the device compatibility before you do anything. To get this mod, you can head over Nexus S XDA thread here and Galaxy Nexus thread here. Don’t forget to comment below about the Mod.
