    I'm wondering if my phone doesn't have an issue with the speaker. It vibrates badly on both notifications and media. Moving my phone to a different position on my ear did improve it but not significantly.

    Does anyone else's phone speaker 'vibrate' terribly when pushed past 75%?
    I have no issues holding the phone to my face during a call, but attempting to use my phone as a speaker-phone or listening to music, it sounds like a $5 plastic portable 1970's AM/FM radio - just horrific. I assume my phone is defective, but I'm afraid to return if due to Verizon's ***-clowns that populate their physical stores (I had phone shipped to me to avoid said idiots.)

    I rarely ever get over 24 hours, and how much the battery drains overnight even after I manually shut down so many processes is annoying. Meh, it's still a strong battery. Although it's so far from what's advertised that I'd say Verizon and Motorola aren't exaggerating as much as they are flat-out lying.

    The phone volume, on the other hand, drives me insane. I'm using my old iPhone headphones that worked fine with my iPhone, and I can barely hear my own music at the gym over the crappy LA Fitness music. I tried using the Music Volume app, but it did nothing to help. Anyone else know an app that might help? Or will I just need to suck it up and buy new headphones?

    I hated the idea of it. Almost went for the LG G3 instead because of it. Went ahead and bought the Turbo. They aren't noticeable. Not a big deal.

    Camera and in call volume, however are a disappointment. The ballistic nylon doesn't provide as much grip as expected. Those are my only complaints, I guess. Battery life seems to be good with less than 24 hours under my belt but it won't get 48 hours. Last night I charged it to 90% and used it for 8 hours with 3.5 hours on screen time and was down to about 58%. I keep my brightness down to about 20% and was on Wi-Fi the whole time.

    Try a pair of headphones that have three rings on the plug end - the Iturd headphones have two rings. See if this makes a difference for you.

    Are you within your return window? Call them and ask for a exchange via the shipping method.

    I did even better, I used their online chat to get my phone replaced. It was indeed defective as the new speaker sounds 100% better.
