    I find it still not loud enough in some noisy environment even when I adjust to the max volume (10/10). Anyone has the same experience or is there any solutions?

    PS: I am talking about the volume of the earspeaker here, not the speaker for hand-free calls and ringtones. The former has only 10 volume levels that you can see if you adjust volume during calls, while the latter has 30 volume levels. I also find that the 30 level volume is not well scaled. 1/30 is quite loud in a quiet environment. Hope we can get a fix on that in the coming update.

    I work at a cell phone retail store, I think yes. I cannot tell you how many damn times old people come in and say "I can't really hear the other person, so I think I need a new phone"

    Same here. Got problem with the other party not hearing me too well. Even at 30/30 for movies, it's still too quiet on noisy trains and shopping malls.

    Yes, I keep it at 10/10 at all times, and its difficult to hear about half the time. I find my self pushing it into my ear, not comfortable

    Same here, both the wife and I have ours set to 10 for the most part although there are times when we're talking to each other and I can lower it to 8 and it's fine. Seems to depend on the other end alot of times if I need to adjust my volume level.

    Same here, tweeted to NokiaCareUS and they recommended that I turn the volume up after as a solution.

    I don't think this is only for seniors. I am only in my 20s.
