SE front camera mic not working

Hello everyone and iFixit team I'm making this post so everyone can see the mistake every supplier is doing and making techs not able to solve the front camera recording or talking to Siri after replacing the front camera proximity cable.

All the SE front camera proximity sensor everyone has been buying are 5s is not the same! The front camera will work proximity sensor will work and receiver will work but the microphone is different. Take a look at the picture 5s is on the left and SE original on the right this is why is static or mute while recording from the front camera or Siri not listening.

iFixit team tested so you can believe me.

@kyle Please notice this and change the product from the website to 5s only

i can confirm this is the truth . the SE and 5S are not the same . if you put a 5S front camera flex cable on an SE, you will indeed have only static noise on front video of the SE.
