    Default Low speaker volume on Galaxy Nexus

    Did anyone figure out a way to increase volume on the speakers yet? I am not sure how Samsung and Google missed this simple thing on an otherwise great phone....

    Thanks,

    Volume+ was a good solution but does not currently work with JB and it looks like the developer has lost interest. If you are using the stock play music app enabling EQ while playing a song and kicking up some of the slides should help a bit.

    I know...it does not make a world of a difference coz probably the speaker of the fone is low itself...these apps jus get it a notch better....try to get the best v can..I wonder wen companies can make such amazing fones wid amazing screen n ask the high processors....how they do nothing to evolve the speaker thing....
    I mean...given the galaxy nexus....amazing fone...but speaker quality(n battery life) sux big time.....

    The battery life on mine has been out of this world! The only issues I've had are with the quiet speaker and some screen burn..

    Surprising... Never heard positive comments on the battery life...

    I do use the extended battery but I didn't think it would provide that much more battery life? I always get at least 16 hours of usage from it and I'm always on the thing and have Wi-Fi and GPS turned on at all times, I unplug the phone from the charger around 11 at night and it easily lasts me until the next day at the same time so that's 16 hours usage minimum and then around 7 hours standby..

    Do you have any recommendations on where we can get the extended battery?

    The speakers are really muted. Turn by turn navigation is really useless, unless I hold the phone up to my ear.
