    I just recently got the S4, and when someone calls, the first ring is really quiet and hard to hear, but the second ring is as per the volume settings, is this normal?

    Mine as well, I cut a ringtone with Ringdroid and I thought it was because of the app. No idea why this happens.

    Found a fix. There's an app called disable increasing ring on the play store. Tried it and it works.

    Tip: After installing go to app info page and turn off notifications.

    I think it's cool because the phone doesn't blast you if you have the ringer all the way up

    Try this:

    go to settings/my device/call and disable "increase volume in pocket".

    When this is enabled, it will ring at normal volume first...then if it detects anything near the phone, it will boost the volume up.

    Yeah I just realized mine is gone because it's been modded out of the Goldeneye 4.0 ROM I'm on. You'll have to use a mod, custom rom, or simply download the app that was mentioned above. The reviews say it works for the S4. Here's the link:

    I recently purchased the Samsung Galaxy S4. Love the phone but it is too quiet! I cannot hear the notifications - regardless of the tone or volume I choose. I contacted Samsung. They said it might be fixed - at some point. I asked if there was a way I could voice my concerns. They said I could contact Samsung voice support at 1-888-987-4357, Mon-Fri: 7 AM - 9 PM (CST), Sat: 9 AM - 6 PM (CST). Maybe if we all call it will be fixed sooner than later!

    Mine is Through the Fire and Flames by Dragonforce, so I don't think so. I think it's all same volume
    EDIT: Just used Google Device Manager to ring it, and nope, volume is good

    the app works, but I'm not a big fan of clogging the RAM with lots of stuff running on the back,

    I guess I'll have to edit my ringtones to manually boost up the volume on the first seconds.

    Anyone knows the default time before the ringtone starts being loud?
