Microphone not working on calls but works in other apps?

I replaced the lock button flex cable (of course I have to replace everything attached to it like the volume buttons, ringer switch, rear noise-cancelling mic etc.) and now my microphone won't work in calls and most apps. Some apps I've found it works (snapchat is one).

I believe it is the rear mic (noise cancelling one) that has the issues? I tried replacing the part again and now the problem still persists, what is the issue/potential issue here?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

When I was replacing the lock button etc part, the only time I would've touched the lightning connector and headphone jack part was when I disconnected it from the logic board, which I'm certain I wouldn't have damaged as I was very careful. It's not just calls that I have issues with, but other apps like Teamspeak, Voice Memos etc. don't work, then apps like Snapchat do work, why?

Thanks for your assistance so far :)
