    I recieved the turbo2 yesterday and played around with it,today I called verizion and told them to put me back on my droid maxx because I could not get the volume to go any higher same with music.I googled the problem and seen there were quite a number of problems people are having with the turbo 2 sound.I even took it to verizion and they couldn't get it any higher.I still have 13 days left so I am going to hang on to it and hope someone will figure it out,if not I'll check out the motox pure edition.

    I haven't had that problem. When I first got it the sound was muffled, but I was keeping the plastic covering on the phone until I could get a glass screen protector, and it was covering the speaker holes. Once I peeled that off, the sound became quite loud.

    No problems here at all. Could be defective.

    Downloaded Tunein Radio app on the VZ store display model so I was able to stream the same station on my T1 one. The store display was definitely louder than my T1

    Try disabling the app "Audio Effects" which is a built-in EQ for the phone. It has worked on previous Motorola phones including the OG Droid Turbo. I am loving both the earpiece call volume and the external speaker volume. Big improvement over the Turbo 1.

    Is this via the speakers, headphones, bluetooth, something else, or some combo? In what situations are you not getting the volume you want/expect?

    News flash: loud music on ALL phones SUCK.

    The built in speakers, on any phone, are not intended to be a knock-your-socks off experience. If you really cared about sound quality and not listening to bull**** coming through phone speakers, get a set of audiophile grade earbuds.

    I think the turbo 2 speaker is fairly loud, can play a video through it and hear it the last phones I had you had to hold the phone to your ears with any other little noise.

    found out the reason why i had low sound,i still had the plastic on the front,i peeled it all the way off and now it works,but it's too late i sent it back a day ago,i might go check out the moto-x-pure-edition to see what thats all about before i make a decision.

    I read that the T2 has just one speaker, despite having two speaker outlets. What's up with that?

    bad move on motorola's part,i wish they had put that shatterproof screen on that pure-edition along with that turbo2 battery,that would have made an awsome phone,maybe a little big.

    They won't. The Pure Edition is not being sold by carriers. It'll work on Verizon's network - you just won't be able to purchase one through them.

    Maybe you should re-title this thread. The sound is acceptable on my unit.

    It's a ported enclosure, which improves the bass response.

    Whenever I talk on this damned phone people complain that the sound fades in and out. This is the second Android turbo I have been given. On the first phone it would not ring for incoming calls. That new phone was replaced with this second "reserviced" phone which has its own problems. Nothing like buying new and then be given second-hand that does not work. Androids suck.

    Whoa dude, don't write off Android as a whole just because of a crappy experience you had with two phones. Android phones come in a huge variety of forms, and you haven't even tried the best form, the Nexus line. Give phones better than the Droid line a try before making your final judgment.

    As for the OP, my Turbo 2 has the best and loudest speaker of any phone I've had that has a mono speaker. Check to see if anything is muffling it, or check your sound settings.

    My speaker is nice & loud but when people call me it's a little quiet. Anyone no how to make the person on the other end of the phone louder without them shouting?
