Re: notification volume

I went with some friends of mine in the biggest mall of my city. We are located near the Sony booth and we have demonstrated this annoying bug to anyone approached to ask questions. After the demonstration many people have decided to not buy the phone. We found a lot of guys willing to do the same demonstration in their city. is the perfect "thank you" to your answers!

Re: notification volume

I'm having the same problem with notification sound being too low. 
I called Sony support and they said that when you choose a notification or call sound both speakers are used when you listen to the sound, because the media volume is used.

But when you get an actual notification or call only one speaker is used and the reason for this (according to support) is that if you have the option enabled to answer by only holding your phone against your ear you shouldn't have to "go deaf" as you do so.

This explanation is somewhat logical, but it really should be up to the user to choose a lower volume in that case.

 

He suggested that I try a software repair anyway to see if there's any difference, but I doubt it. The problem seems to be that only one speaker is used by the notification and call sounds, which is definitely something Sony should fix in my opinion. Either by increasing the max volume or using both speakers. I didn't have this problem at all with my previous Android phone (Samsung Galaxy S4).

Re: notification volume

This is how I see it - if it was done on purpose (which is the stupidest thing ever because it stays like that even when my motion controls are off) then a Sony representative would have replied here... No reply from Sony = something is wrong. And system restore is the thing that every company tells you to do when they have no idea what to do, it's the last thing there is to do... I'm studying PR and I can tell you that this is a proof that Sony's PR team is awful because if there's no respons from those whose job is to help customers then PR agents must push them so that their brand doesn't look as bad as it does now.
