    First off, I would like to apologize for "Starting a NEW " thread but...I believe this issue is getting "white washed" by Sprint.

    I could "buy" the argument well,,, (the 4g lte) is just not as loud as other phones ,,,(end of story) BUT,,,,Since the 4g LTE has 2 speakers ...THERE is no reason the "old" 4g EVo should be louder than the "NEW" 4g LTE ...

    With all of these "software" updates and enhancements still "Nothing" addressing this issue...LISTEN when I get a call I want to be able to hear the ringer ,,,it is VERY easy to miss a call on the 4g lte due to this issue...

    I read here and othe forums people are trying "home brew ideas" ,,,some are waiting for "actual software upgrade", Can someone/anyone please give intelligent feedback regarding this.

    Thank you in advance !

    You sure it's not your ears? My EVO is plenty loud. I have no problems hearing it at all. Of course I've got youthful ears as well lol.

    Where is the second speaker?

    Also, using quotes and random capitalization, plus overuse of ellipses will not get your point across clearer or more demandingly. Just makes it look silly.

    Certainly sounds (pun intended) like a bad phone. Take it to a sprint store and demonstrate the speaker volume of your phone against a floor model.

    Like others mine is perfectly acceptable.

    One question though, do you have "Quiet ring on pickup" turned on? Perhaps you have a bad sensor that makes your phone always think it is in motion thus quieting the ringer?

    I disagree. I think the overuse of quotes, questionable use of commas and the obvious misunderstanding of the ellipses lent themselves to a refreshing departure from staid grammatical form.

    So why did you, then? There are already existing speaker threads.

    1) The Evo LTE has one speaker not 2.
    2) The Evo LTE is louder than the Evo 3D and almost as loud as the Evo 4G.

    Is it purely phone speaker issues you're having? Or volume within apps? There's both media and speaker volumes and sometimes the one you need to actually boost the sound in an app is hidden, or, there's a separate sound slider in a menu setting somewhere that you have set too low.

    And you posted in this thread that should have been posted elsewhere, essentially making it longer. Which is the lesser of the two of evils?

    I guess it doesn't really matter, the OP has gone back into his life of obscurity and doesn't really want an answer, just to see his name starting a thread...

    I have felt the speaker was not as loud as my old Evo 4g. Mainly when using speakerphone for calls. Music may not be dramatically different but still seems not quite as loud. Also not sure this is related or not but when using the aux cable in my car I have to turn the volume on the phone up all the way and turn the volume on the car a lot higher than I do for all other types of music (radio, CD, HDD).

    He probably want it as loud as the HTC Hero was that was a beast phone King Kong in the Trunk the Evo is more like an iPod Touch it about the same volume but that probably cause they don't want you to go deaf I think the volume is reasonable it just some people want a litte more bass and volume like the Sprint Hero

    They do have extension speakers you can add that plug into the speaker headphone jack if you need the real loud sound and bass.
