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.


Thank you so much! I thought I needed a new phone!

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
