    Hey,

    My friend came from iphone 4s to galaxy s4. He complained the alarm isnt loud enough and I didnt believe him, I've never really had a problem with alarms on galaxies before (I have note 3 and alarm is at the bottom).

    So he showed me, when u hold the phone in the hand the alarm is really loud, but as soon as you put the phone on the table, you can BARELY hear it, I was shocked. He has to put the phone face flat on the table to be able to hear the alarm, and I find that unacceptable.

    Anyone else have this problem?

    I think I am misunderstanding something. Is he laying it screen down?

    Since the speaker is on the back I always lay my S4 face down. With it face up the speaker is very low.

    I was thinking is you laid it face up if it would be louder. Something to reflect the sound...

    face down would be very quiet if the speaker grill is damaged and not protruding like it was designed or if you have a flat case on it.

    This is probably going to sound strange but put the phone in a glass. The sound bounces off the glass and seems to make it louder.

    I usually leave mine face down but it doesn't matter because I have an otter box on it

    must have unlocked boot loaders!!

    Check out the UAG case. The formed channels on the back side allow the sound to be heard even when laying on the back.
