Hi Iridia, there is double layer, first one is kind of plastic stuff and then tiny net, basically you need to uncover your speaker. But you must be aware that phone speaker will be ecsposed to dust and other dirt. However I did that to my phone when I uploaded video and speaker is still OK since then.

Strange, because mine is ringing lower right after Lollipop update. It was the first thing that I've noticed. Another problem was heavy battery drain and heavy heating on the phone, for five-six of days in a row. I presumed that an application made that, with huge data trafic. Now, the battery seems to be ok.
Anyway, I hope that Sony will do something about the lower sound.

It has nothing to do with that layer from speaker cover. If it is partialy damaged or you have a gap there, it should ring a little bit louder. Did you had speaker cover damaged before the Lollipo update?

Also after update to 5.1.1, sound is lower in speaker when I am talking with somebody.
I rollback to 4.4.4 and now sound, camera and gps is good.
Sony, please do not embarrass yourself with this lollipop update.

So, the update is the main reason for lower sound. We should start sending emails to Sony and request to solve this issue.
