    Uh, not really, you only want noise cancellation during phone calls. That "noise" is only noise because it interferes with the talking during a phone call. When using the recorder or video recorder that "noise" could very well be what you want to record...

    What difference does it make if it's a phone call or any other input of sound into the main microphone? The phone doesn't know what you think is noise, it only knows what was closer to the main microphone than to the cancellation microphone, and uses an algorithm to prioritize one over the other by cancelling out sounds that are not heard the loudest on the main mic. (typically from your mouth) Are you saying that the phone is designed to work differently when you turn on the recorder and use both mics mixed together? Does it created a stereo effect, or just a mono mix of (opposite directed) mics? Because if it's the later, that would be a horrible recording.

    Imagine pointing a mic at something only to also have to listen to anything that happened behind that mic as well. There are no recording devices in the history of recording devices that are made this way unless they are putting those extra mics on separate channels or are purposely designed for an ambient capture zone. Phones typically aren't designed to do that, and if they were, it would be a horrible choice to use in the situation above.

    Am I saying that it works different when used as a recorder than a phone? Um, yes, because as a phone,n you're trying to only transmit your voice to the person you're calling. As a recorder you can be recording your voice, someone else's voice, how cool your car sounds, how a train passing by sounds, whatever the heck you want to record sounds. And yes, if this is the same as the Q10, the two mics on top do record in stereo, unlike the one mic on the bottom for phone calls...
