I use PCM Recorder and it will record until it consumes entire storage space. Also, I am able to use the phone for other tasks and PCM Recorder seems to keep recording in background, which is cool. I can even lock the phone and there by switch off the display which makes the drain on battery to very minimal, in par with the stock voice recorder application.

When I did the "Note to Self", I was sent an email with the attachment (I assume this is the function, I've never used it before!). The attachment is the *.amr file that you can then download, and it will save it to download/RecordedMessage#.amr. After some searching, the original file is stored in phone memory, not external, at /data/data/com.google....

The LAME encoder is useful for converting such files. PC applications can be found here: http://lame.sourceforge.net/links.html You can try another recorder, like Hi-Q MP3 Recorder. This will record it immediately in mp3 format. you can use an online converter to do the job. Try for example http://www.mediaconverter.org

There is no default sound recorder in Android. Some manufacturers add one to their stock ROMs, but the closest thing on a Nexus device is Google Keep, added in 4.3. If you assume that a voice recording app is present in all Android phones you'll be caught out.

Well, I don't know a specific application for this specific task. But you can use the built-in camera to record a video (obviously with audio) without unlock the phone. Most devices have the function to take a picture without unlocking (camera-button, sliding, shaking etc). On the camera screen you can change from picture mode to video record easily.

From Google help There isn't any way at this time to force the microphone to stay on for Voice Typing. When you pause for several seconds, voice typing assumes you're taking a break. This likely helps to conserve your device's battery as well I haven't found any workaround on XDA . So, I guess sending Google feedback is the only way out for now

Use Evernote. It features cloud sync and it lets you access your notes from almost all platform. You can create audio notes directly from homescreen using its widget, too.

I'm using Catch Notes for this functionality: notes saved offline and synced, when internet connected (and some notes I'm editing from my PC via web browser, their synced later).

I saw a reviewer talking about that and i believe there is no fix in settings for that but I can recommend you an app called caffeine that keeps your phone awake for a set amount of time

I can't say with absolute certainty where they are on a Samsung S6, but on my Samsung Galaxy Note 3, and I doubt that they change their filesystem layout too much from one device to the next. I can see them from Windows 10 at: This PC\SM-N900T\Phone\Sounds\Voice 001.m4a This PC\SM-N900T\Phone\Sounds\Voice 002.m4a This PC\SM-N900T\Phone\Sounds\Voice 003.m4a ...

In short, MP3 is a Compressed audio file format, which means some details of Audio will be deleted to reduce the size. If you record your audio in MP3, the quality will be low than recording in Other formats such as ogg or aac. Hardware is not a limitation. Recorded audio can be converted into any other format using simple software. Note: Now-a-days many ...

After trying the voice recording I've found that the recording stops whenever there is silence for a few seconds. In other words, to make a long recording you'll need to talk continously. I've so far found no way to increase the length of this silence period in order to stop the recorder from prematurely stop recording. Please comment if you know how to do ...

First, reboot your device. Try to reinstall Whatsapp. Disable any mods like custom DPI, custom theme, Xposed, etc... Hope my answer helps you!

Like @Izzy mentioned in the comments, Tasker is the way to go. Here you can see a List of Plug-Ins and 3rd Party Tools where you can find Easy Voice Recorder. With this installed it will be easy to create a Task for recording ;)

2-way call recording on Nexus 4 is disabled by the manufacturer. If you have root, try Jit Call Recorder, it records both sides of the call very well

Try Easy Voice Recorder. It works for me (Nexus 4, Android 4.4.2 without root). When you have root privileged, it is much easier. But without root, I don't know any apps that can record the other side in a way that you can hear him "clean". But as I said, Easy Voice Recorder did a very good job for me. Not perfect (crystal clear), but good (I can here the ...

It's on main drive of your phone (at lest it was in my case), named something like .voice.3ga Just plug in your phone to PC, an run search for .3ga file type. Hope this helps.

You can configure Note Everything to do regular backups of all your notes (they will be stored on SD card then). If you additionally want to have those data sync'd with "the cloud", you might want to take a look at specific synchronization apps, like e.g. FolderSync. This way you can keep the app you are already used to (and which is wonderful, by the way -- ...

As far as I know, there are no built-in audio converters in Android. Your best bet is to use third party library, maybe even a c/c++ one. Look at this question for more info: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/3641920
