What do you think will be the best Reporter Mic for doing episodes on Mobile Phones? The phone (s) will be Android Phones. 

 

I like the Audio Technica AT9913iS (like the Rode VideoMic Me) but it does not have a long cable. I though of the new Rode Mic i-XLR, but that is only for iPhones. 

Any suggestions?

Did you just try the built-in mic? I recorded an event once on my Google Nexus 5 phone with the built-in mic and the RecForge II app, and the quality was surprisingly good. It wasn't quite as flat as my Audio Technica AT-897, but for voice it was great. I suggest you try that first before investing...would be super portable too.

Thanks. Good idea. Will check that first. Maybe the sound can be tweaked or cleaned up a little in post too.

Appreciate its not what you are asking for directly, but I picked up a Rode Smartlav+ mic the other day for lightweight documentary projects. The sound quality is excellent for the price and it did a great job on the project I bought it for. Recorded straight into my iPhone and it exported WAV files out the other side very easily.

Thanks Calum. I picked up a few JK MIC-J 044s. It's an excellent mic for the price. I will use it indoors I guess.
