    Does anyone find that the volume on the earpiece does not go up quite enough? Maybe it's my old ears. We know the speaker is capable of it, but in a noisy environment, I find myself tapping the volume-up, even though I know I'm at the top already. Hopefully they can tweak this in a software update down the road. Is it just me?

    I find all bluetooth earbuds are too soft on all Android phones

    I wrote that as my initial dislike. I don't think the earpiece volume is that loud. Definitely not as loud as my G3

    Phone sounds beyond great for me. On Verizon with advanced 4g on. People keep telling me I sound amazing and I feel I'm sitting right next to them

    No problems at all for me. The earpiece volume is plenty loud.

    Do you mean the volume while on a call? If so, yes for my almost 50 year old ears.

    I think all those other posters were talking about music and video volume. You are talking about call volume and they missed the point. Yes, the call volume is terrible. Worst phone I ever had for that. Anyone that says differently is obviously smoking something. Lots of complaints on the internet about that, and of course, there are always one or two people jumping in with "my call volume is way LOUD." but they are on drugs.

    It's fine inside in a relatively quiet room, but if there's moderate or loud background noise, it can be very hard to hear the caller.

    I will say the volume is lower than my other phones but of my needs it is fine. I have good hearing though so I know that helps.

    I have 41 year old hair band era concert ears. I use it when running 30 year old tractor (not so quiet) and I honestly have been happy with the volume. I came from a G3 which was good and I think this is slightly louder. Weird the differences people are having.

    Poweramp takes care of the headphone volume and is a great music player. Paid app though.

    I believe this thread is about call volume on the earpiece - not music. Hence my question earlier in the thread .

    My Pure is extremely loud and clear...I had the Droid Turbo, THAT had horrible call volume. This phone is at least 3 times as loud. Could be different carriers having different call volumes. I'm on Verizon with Enhanced LTE on and it is one of the clearest and loudest call volume phones I've ever had, and I've had many...JMTC

    Enhanced LTE, HD Voice, VOLTE...I know verizon has had these for a while. How are they turned on? Is this on the account side as a feature? Maybe that's the difference.

    You should be able to login to your Verizon account and add a feature called "Advanced Calling" to your account. It adds $0.00 a month (a.k.a nothing) but will enable VoLTE for you .

    What people fail to realize is that how you hold the phone to your ear, as in the position of the speaker on your ear canal, greatly effects earpiece volume. Those who hold the phone in prime position have no trouble hearing and are happy with the volume. Those who don't, have the complaints. Experiment a little with it. It's doubtful that the the actual speaker volume varies as much as people in this thread lead us to believe.

    Not my first rodeo, Copywrite. After 7 smartphones, I naturally adjust where it sits on my ear. Good thought, though.

    I didn't misunderstand the question. The call volume on my Pure is just fine - no different than the call volume on my 2014 Moto X or 2013 Moto X before it.

    Wasn't that part of the problem people were having with the Turbo - they weren't holding the phone in such a way to maximize speaker volume?

    But be aware that if a call is made or received in VoLTE and you drive into a 3G zone the call will be dropped.
