    Default BoomSound on HTC Desire Series Vs One

    The HTC One is considered to be the loudest smartphone in the market today due to its BoomSound Technology with two Front Speakers and Built-In Amplifiers.

    HTC has also instroduced BoomSound to its Desire Series with phones like HTC Desire 700, HTC Desire 600 etc.

    Can anybody throw some light on whether the Desire Series Phones are as loud as the HTC One?

    Thank you

    Where did you hear this? The larger, front facing speakers are nice a clear and offer good audio reproduction for a phone, but I don't think it was ever considered all that loud.

    The replacement One I received is very different in sound quality than my first One.

    My first One had great sound and average to above average volume but boom only made a slight difference.

    My new One still has great sound but it's louder. Not only that but there is a huge difference when you toggle boom on and off.

    Not sure why but it is what it is

    Where are you toggling boom sound on and off? Do you mean Beats?

    Most of the ones I've used recently have been about the same. I'm sure there are slight differences, but in everyday use the differences won't show up.

    Where the HTC One speakers shine is that they're large, clear and font facing, which is so obvious it's painful. Why did no one do this before?

    The BlackBerry Z30 has louder and higher quality speakers than the One.
    I like them, but not enough to leave my One

    Are you referring to the Loudspeaker Audio Playback Quality or the Loudspeaker during Voice Calls?

    The following is a link which praises the Loudspeaker

    No, I haven't really heard any louder (at least from what I can tell). A few people on these boards said the GS4 is louder, but with a much lower audio quality.

    Specifically talking about music and video playback, though using it as a speakerphone is great too.

    I previously read the article and totally disagree with the line that you can't have alerts on anything but the lowest volume setting. I keep mine at about 50% or greater and it's just about perfect for making sure I hear it while not being an annoyance to others.

    The original questions still remain unanswered:

    1) Is the Desire Series with the BoomSound as loud as the HTC One?

    2) Is the HTC One loudest Smartphone on the Planet as far as the Audio Playback on the loudspeaker is concerned?

    I request the experts to throw some light on the above.

    It is also said that the HTC One went through blown speaker problem and due to that they reduced the sound volume in the software upgrade. Can anybody throw some light on the issue?

    Can you please elaborate on the loudness of the Speaker during Audio / Video Playback ? After the 4.3 update, it is better than the original, at par or at lower volumes? Thank you
