Re: weak speaker
I noticed the same weak maximum speaker volume upon buying my Sensation on the very first weekend of availability in the USA (12 June 2011 at WalMart).

Glad to hear that HTC may be remedying this. I'd rather let them handle it than turn to an App like Melius Volume+ which warns many times not to crank up the volume too high, as it may damage the speakers -- weak (but high quality otherwise) as they already are.
I temporarily but partially solved the problem on hearing my ringtone in noisy environments by two methods. First, I took a preferred tune and used the free Audacity software (Audacity: Free Audio Editor and Recorder) to substantially raise its volume level, saved it, and loaded it onto my phone.
Second, I came across a likable enough .mp3 song that already had a quite high sound level, with high-toned intro instrumentals that were easy to hear (La Enorme Distancia.mp3, by Chavela Vargas, 2883 Kb, track no. 9), and am using that now. Of course, not every .mp3 file version of this song by this artist may have the same high sound level I found.
Please, HTC, if you are reading this, fix the weak speaker problem. Thank you.
