Sound recording quality settings
By default, the Sound Recorder will capture and save high quality audio recordings as .aac files. You can however downgrade the audio quality when you don’t need them to be with very high quality so as to reduce the file size for long recordings.
On the home screen of the voice recording app, tap the More button (three dots icon) at the top right to expand the menu. Choose Voice quality, then the Select voice quality dialog pops up, you can switch between High and Low here. If you set voice quality to low, the Sound Recorder app will save your audio recordings as .3gpp files and the file size will be greatly reduced compared with those recording files in .aac format.
