Notification volume, I found a simple fix that is permanent
One of the things that disappointed me when I got my Z2 was how quiet the notifications are. I researched a few tricks and found the one where you activate "X-loud" in the setting which did boost it a bit but it was still too quiet for me. Today, while playing around trying to find a tone that I could hear I noticed that there is an independant setting for the notification that operate separately from the main volume slider (even though that is called "Ringtones & Notifications". Here is what I did...
Go to settings and notification tone
Select a tone and it will start playing
While it is playing keep pressing the volume up key, you may have to play the tone a few times to get the volume up but every time you press the volume up key you'll see a volume slider appear.
This does work, my text tones are now nice and loud. I did originally have my "Ringtones & Notifications" slider all the way up but still had quiet tones, when I did the above I noticed that the slider started only at about a quarter of the way up and once I got it to the top it was nice and loud.
Hope this helps somebody out there - it certainly helped me!
