Re: Xperia XZ low sound

I gave up on my Xperia for music in the end and went back to my old Sony MP3 player. Cant believe I was duped in to spending so much by Sony sales staff in their store, never again.

I only ever listen with headphones on, the best volume I can get means turning of the Hi Res option, which was its main attraction over a cheaper Sony phone.

Looking at the new HTCs now, they seem to have really worked on their phones as a music player and Ive been able to actually try one out in the store.

Re: Low Speaker Volume

Hi

 

It's very common and there seems to be miscommunication with advisor's because the response is to compare and compare. That's fine but just on a general real level the phone sounds quality is poor!

Re: Xperia XZ low sound

Hi

 

So what you saying is that of the device itself is the same in comparison to others then the issue is that Sony has made a premium device with bad sound quality and output, keeping in mind that Sony is a giant in electronics and this would reflect on its other products. 

 

So we should just zip it and accept the 'intended' quality derivative?

Re: Xperia XZ loudspeaker very soft

LOL!

 

I had the same issue and after seeing your edit about the plastic cover being left on...

 

I too left the plastic cover on, as I was awaiting a screen protector but I barely hear the phone making any noise. 

Cut a strip across the plastic so that the speaker was exposed. Much better now!

Re: Xperia XZ loudspeaker very soft

Ive had the same issue with my XZ since I bought it. I had the Z3 before and it was a lot louder!
