After increasing all volumes to max and still low hearing then Clean the small slot on the face of the phone at the top. Just besides the selfie camera. First rub with damp cloth and with a dry cloth hard. This is your call speaker. Bottom of the phone is media speaker.

check the speakers are clear they often get dirt or lint in them from your pocket and it kills the volume same can happen to the mic

if after all the things you tried then its time to buy some ifix it tools and order a new speaker part and replace old with new and see if it works.

Huh, so that's my problem. I've had my phone since Xmas 2018, and I actually got a new phone because of this issue, AND because the thing took over 48 hours to charge (now it charges overnight), but I can't afford to get it fixed, and the other phone I have doesn't have the storage I need so I can't use it for what I want…
