    Anyone else notice the speaker volume for ringtones and music and such is much quieter than the Lumia 928? On volume 25 or so it sounds as loud as my 928 at like 16 or 17

    Opposite for me compared to the 928's I have used, Music volume (through headphones) seems a bit louder

    That simply seems like an easy software fix. The speaker clearly produces loud audio so there is no particular reason that the notifications should be set so low.

    I noticed when I installed some of my old fav ringtones from a file they play quite a bit softer than the OEM installed ringtones. Not a big deal. Coming from android I'm doing some adjusting in many areas but I like it so far.

    Yup ringtones, alert messages, text messages, etc. all have such a quiet beep on the loudest volume for me on my Icon. My parents both have 928 and compared to them it definitely sounds quiet.

    I think I have determined this is a bug. Sometimes after rebooting the sound will be nice and loud. But this morning I almost overslept because of how quiet it went back to on my alarm!

    Damm. I am waiting for international version of Lumia icon to come. In most of the reviews in youtube, they compared its speaker volume with Galaxy S4, Optimus G2 and other competitors, where its louder than its competitor. Does hard / soft resetting works?

    Maybe they will say, "It's a hardware limitation. However we are not ruling out the possibility of a fix in a future software release." I mean, their legal team already approved the statement right? ;)

    I think the vibrate mode on the 928 is louder than the ringtone of the Icon lmao

    I'm actually glad it's lower than my 928, mostly because even if my 928's volume was set to 1 to be as quite as possible, it was still too loud.

    With that said, I usually keep my volume on my Icon between 16-20. I have no issues with notifications / ringtone / alarm.

    It's quieter for me, but not by much. What I notice is that I tend to cover the speaker much easier than I did with my 928. A bit of a disappointment but at least it sounds louder through a headset than the 928.

    It must be easy. Its a software issue with volume of notifications. How hard can that be? If they can't get the whole "independent volume and ring tone" thing down yet... At least replace the notification tones with louder volume ones. Its a quick update.

    it was one of the first things I noticed. I thought it was just me that the sound seems loud at times and barely audible at others.

    I noticed the same thing on my Icon. I even compared it to one on display at the local Microsoft Store "specialty store" and they were both equally quiet. I compared them to the 1520 right beside it, and the 1520 was much louder. It's not a huge problem, but hopefully they can up the volume a little bit with a software patch in the near future.
