Which microphone is broken?

Hi, My iPhone XR microphone doesn’t work on speaker calls but works fine on normal calls.

The strange thing is that Siri works fine, (which uses the earpiece mic),… and normal phone calls work fine which i believe uses the bottom mic.

Voice memos just records static, same as speaker calls for people on the other end listening.

Front facing and Rear facing video all record sound fine..What should i be replacing here?

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

The connector microphones are located on the charging port assembly. One of these microphones has become faulty. I am not sure which one handles the voice memo and speaker phone. Replace the charging port assembly and the audio should be fine.
