Better Calls With HD Voice

“Smart’s ‘supercharged’ LTE network, together with the availability of HD Voice on more smartphones, allow our subscribers to experience seamless and better quality calls that can make them feel like their friends and loved ones are just standing right beside them,” said Kathryn Carag, Postpaid Marketing Head at Smart. “Voice is sometimes an overlooked facet,” Carag said, “but it is vital to the overall mobile experience of subscribers. Smart’s active push for HD Voice through our various smartphones offerings reinforces our commitment to provide the best wireless experience for users — whether through SMS, mobile internet, or voice.”
Users won’t need to activate HD Voice as it is automatically activated for all HD Voice-capable phones at no additional cost. HD Voice currently only works between callers who both have HD Voice-capable devices and who are both under Smart. HD Voice-capable phones are those with Adaptive Multi-Rate Wideband (AMR-WB) capability built-in. Other than the LG G2 Mini LTE, Smart’s line-up of HD-Voice capable smartphones include iPhone 5S and 5C, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, the Sony Xperia L, and the Samsung Galaxy S5.
