I'm a time-served old school traditional Dictaphone user and never thought I'd make the switch to a completely digital recorded. That said, after trying a few apps and settling for dictomate I'm now using my recording app in ways I never thought I would! See, you can teach an old dog new tricks!
I recently bought a new Android smartphone (Acer Liquid E3) and one thing it does perfectly is audio recording. I just use the stock app and set the quality to "High (OGG)", hit record and I'm away. The audio quality is crisp and clear with the right balance.
