Jelly Bean and Low Volume
Last week I updated my from from ICS to JB - worst mistake ever!!
So many things have changed about my phone in ways that I do not like!!
But, I'm trying to keep an open mind because, unfortunately, there's no going back, and I don't have the money to buy a new phone right now.
Latest woe -- why has my volume changed, regardless of whether it's for media, call audio, ringer audio, etc.? I have it set at max, and yet I can barely hear when my phone rings. And I used to be able to rock out when my music was playing, but no more...
Makes me not only regret the update, but also the SII in general... ah, I am really eyeing that HTC One with envy now...
Any thoughts or TRUE fixes? i.e., is there some stealth setting that I am unable to locate that will allow me to override what Samsung now thinks that maximum audio output should be? Or do they now get to dictate this, too?
Re: Jelly Bean and Low Volume
Did you try Home > Menu > Settings > Sound > Volume since you upgraded? Sounds / volume work differently in JB. Just using the volume up / down key won't change the level setting as it relates to other things on the phone, just overall volume of the phone.
