    I think Ativ S sound speaker isn't specially louder. Not bad either. The quality of it is quite good for a phone however... It may be limited by software to protect it. Or you may need to clean the speaker, I had to do it once. Since the speaker is magnetic, it attracts tiny metal dirt which affects the sound over the time. Cleaning it isn't very hard check in YouTube how to access it. In summary you have to remove the back, remove the sim, microsd and unscrew every screw you can see on the back, then remove the lateral bezzel previously heating it with a domestic heater (The same you use for ur hair works). I think this should be do at least once a year to clean the whole phone. Mine got the charging port broken and I had to replace it. I think it was due to the accumulation of conductive dirt.

    Sry for my english.

    I think ATIV S got good sound quality, not great, but good enough to enjoy it.

    I play the same song by speaker/headphone and ATIV S pumping vivid sound with good detail and quite balanced in mid/low feq. Feels better than my LG G2 which give a drier sound.

    The volume of the sound =/= sound quality

    It can depend on the music file - for example, i have some songs that are ultra quiet were some are ultra loud and very clear. Try to listen to as much as high quality music as possible.
