    Default Volume Low

    I am confused still from threads and an app description I read

    So the original volume problem of fluttering was fixed with the earlier version of the GSM Nexus. Google said the one last week was a brand new version. Nothing new, just fixes I suppose. Is he correct

    Well it seems that the volume is still low and I have seen other threads, opinions

    I saw Volume+ But it said do not use NOT rooted. I don't wanna root
    Can someone tell me if I really shouldn't use that AND / OR what a good app or fix is?

    Thanks so much

    That is very nice of you to help...and especially so quickly

    Are there any benefits to the other one, it isn't quite labeled as Pro or Premium, so I wasn't sure if it was totally different or just more features?

    Just try the free one first, then if I like the other?
    The other is not related?
    Or, the free one will be all I need?

    Thanks again. Have an awesome hump day

    OP - are you talking speaker volume or earpiece volume?

    I'm using Volume+ to boost speaker volume. Works very well. I'm not rooted either and don't plan to. The speaker volume gives you the warning about needing to be rooted. I haven't tried it. Not sure what happens when you hit "I'm not rooted" in the Volume+ app when in the In-Call Setting (ie. earpiece volume).

    I like this phone a lot, especially unlocked straight from Google for $434. But this is the crummiest earpiece and speaker volume I have ever experienced with a phone. Terrible job, Samsung, very terrible job. It's my first samsung so I'm not sure if it's just the Galaxy Nexus or all of their handsets? Looking into Volume+ right now, though I'm not rooted either.

    I swear by Android. And I now swear by Samsung after hating Sense and not desiring to root anymore.

    Everyone in this post gave great advice on volume+ it works fine unrooted. I go up to 8 or 9 and it is perfect.

    This volume is lower than most samsungs. But they seem to me to have lower volume.

    For those who helped...is the volume+ relative to how strong the original speaker was? In other words would my friends GS2 which has a better speaker not want it on the same.
    number.

    Or is it such that once the app is running it will be the same for all phones.

    Thx

    Good to know that Volume+ doesnt need root.

    My biggest gripe with the GN was the pathetic speaker volume. Weak sauce.

    for Volume+, you don't need root for the speaker volume boost, but you do need it for the earpiece volume boost... i'm not rooted nor do i plan to... i'm just using the speaker volume increase for V+ and even that is a big improvement... i found the speaker volume to be the worst of the two between it and earpiece volume anyways, so i don't feel compeled to root just to boost the earpiece volume which isn't that bad anyways...

    Volume+ didn't seem to boost my speaker volume much; I don't notice a difference really. I got a little confused by its instructions during setup, as I was rushing at the time, so I think I'll uninstall and reinstall to try it again, since everyone's saying it works for their Galaxy Nexus's. Thanks guys! :-)

    I've figured out that my speaker has more volume "steps" now when listening to podcasts, but I don't really notice a difference with my ringtone when someone calls me yet. Still messing with the settings and trying to figure it out.

    Stock, rooted of course!

    Set Volume+ to +15 for maximum volume. Anything above +15 and it does nothing. If you set the EQ Preset to "Good Quality" it seems to distort the speaker less then the other settings. I do not use Volume+ to change the settings on anything else aside from Speaker Settings. I did mess with it under Headset Settings, but it seems to make the sound on headphones sound worst. Hope this helps.
