Ever wondered what's behind LG G3
's fine-tuned voice quality, besides the hardware parts like the earpiece, mics and the amplified 1W speaker? It turns out that the phone is one of the few with integrated LifeVibes VoiceExperience software, as the creator company NXP bragged in a press release. The enhancements apply to everything voice-related on the G3, from Circuit Switched, through VoLTE and VoIP calls, to LG's Q-Voice speech recognition, which has gotten immensely better in the G3. As per the presser, LifeVibes is a complete solution, not just a piecemeal application:
LifeVibes VoiceExperience delivers unprecedented audio quality and clarity, offering natural voice calling that enhances consumers' experience. Excellent noise suppression and echo cancellation is based on advanced voice modelling techniques, allowing unwanted signals to be removed selectively. Echo and noise is thus removed without affecting natural speech quality, ensuring intelligibility in noisy environments, especially when using speaker mode. VoiceExperience is a platform-independent, full-software solution offering fast time-to-market and measurably superior quality, backed by worldwide support.
The whole VoiceExperience kit seems destined almost exclusively for Qualcomm's Hexagon SDK that comes with the chip maker's Snapdragon line of mobile processors. The SDK gives freedom to phone makers or third party developers to tailor the speech, audio imaging and video features and performance for each mobile device's specific hardware paraphernalia, ensuring a holistic approach to the audio quality, for instance, just as it's done on the LG G3.
