How many of you use your Phones, Phablets or Tablets to listen to Music, Watch TV and Movies and play Games?  When you do, do you want to listen or play in private?  I do!Most of my Movie and TV watching is done when I’m travelling, and mainly on an airplane flight or sitting in a hotel room.A lot of devices are not very loud when it comes to music, either because the speakers inside the devices are not very large or the sound they produce is weak and low volume.  Because the quality of the speaker is inferior, I’m guessing a lot of the manufacturers limit the audio volume you can feed them so they last longer.  Which does make sense as your run of the mill smart phone is not really designed as speaker, that’s why we have headphone jacks.I’ve installed equalizers to play around with the sound, and used volume boosters to make them louder.  Even with a low end pair of headphones strapped across my shiny bald head, I still have problems listening to a lot of the shows I watch on airplanes.  You need to get rid of the background noise and have good quality audio f

Android phones: Which has the loudest audio out?

Saturday 27th of November 2010 /
I have owned a Desire since its Australian launch, and it is unequivocally the best phone I have used since the venerable Nokia N95.I also have an iPhone 3GS provided by my benevolent employer, which in general I don't particularly like.There is only one thing about the iPhone that is going to make it hurt to give it back to my employer when I leave at the end of this month. Audio volume. Specifically, when I have my Desire connected to an external amplifier such as the car stereo (a daily occurence) or the stereo in my loungeroom, while it sounds pretty good, it cannot match the iPhone for volume, or the general 'meatiness' of the sound, and in the car it means I have to turn the stereo's volume up way higher than I do compared to when I use the iPhone, while still not getting sound of the same quality.I have looked at the Dell Streak based on positive comments about its audio quality, and I will buy one in a heartbeat if I can establish that its sound is noticeably louder and or better than the Desires.My question is: Which Android phones have the best audio quality when connected

Charger Amps and Ringtone Volume

Tuesday 20th of September 2011 /
Hi All, I have just got my first Android which is a Star A2000, (chinise I know but not a bad phone) my question is.....the Star comes with an charger output: DC5V=500MA and I have a Samsung Jet, charger output: DC5V =0.7A both have the the same connecter, will the Samsung charger cause any damage to the Star or will it just charge quicker? also the ringtone on the Star is not very loud on full volume, is there any app/way I can make it louder, I have tried different mp3 songs and ringtones to no avail. Cheers, Dave

Should I override android volume settings to make my app LOUDER?

Thursday 18th of October 2012 /
Good morning, I have published a simple alarm clock app for a celebrity, and there are a few issues I am concerned with. Maybe the community could weigh in on these issues.......1) Users are complaining the volume level of my alarm is NOT LOUD ENOUGH. Would it be advisable to actually increase/override the android volume settings, or am i risking legal implications for hearing loss etc....2) What kind of sales volume happens with a popular app? Sales averages 1st day, week, month. Trends up and down. Any info is appreciated, I want my app to shine!Thanks

Notification Volume

Tuesday 17th of September 2013 /
I've had the maxx for about three weeks and I just noticed something yesterday. I work in a very noisy environment and for me to hear that I have received a text I need it loud. I usually hear them but I missed a few yesterday. I opened up the message app and went to change the alert tone. I selected a tone that was very loud then I sent myself a test text and even though it was loud, it wasn't as loud as when I previewed it before making it my tone. I did this with several different tones and they all play louder before I make them my text tone and receive a text. My volumes are all set to maximum. It's not a huge deal but I was wandering if I'm the only one with this issue? Posted via Android Central App

volume really low for music

Friday 03rd of January 2014 /
So, I just changed jobs. Up until this job, I've always had my jobs provide me with cool phones. Well my new job doesn't and I'm not willing to spend $100 a month on a phone. But my last phone was an iPhone and I bought a lot of music on it. Well, with my new job and no phone, I bought a Tracfone ZTE Z665C phone. I put a 15 GB SD card in it and then converted all of my itunes music from .m4p to m4a unencryped files. Then copied them over. They play fine on my Android except the music is incredibly low volume. I tried playing it in my car today and I had to crank the volume of my stereo way up. And with the volume way up, the music is "lifeless." No highs or lows. Just all very boring midrange and a lot of distortion of having the radio cranked way up. I have the volume of the phone all the way high. I checked the setting in the phone where it has the volume for music and it's all the way up. I downloaded an app that's supposed to make the volume louder, but it didn't help. Any ideas why the volume would be so low? The volume seems fine when just listening from the phone. Bu

HTC One Chromecast Crashing

Friday 21st of February 2014 /
I noticed this the other day. I was casting Play Music to my chromecast and I went to check a hangouts video message from a friend. While playing the video I pressed the volume button to make the video louder and my phone instantly reboots. I tried this while casting Netflix, Play Movies and Pandora with the same results. Has anyone had this happen? Or know what causes it? Posted via Android Central App

Need help setting up my phone as the primary music player

Sunday 31st of August 2014 /
Until now I've always used an iPod, but I'm ready to make the switch to just using my Android phone. I'm trying to use Google Play music. I like that I can upload my entire library of music and have access to it basically everywhere. However, how well it functions in the car is my primary concern, and so far I'm not 100% happy with it. First off, the interface just isn't as easy/quick to use as the iPod's interface. Second, I'm stuck using an auxiliary cable instead of USB like I was able to do with the iPod. Not only did the iPod cable keep it charged, but it transferred a better signal IMO, that IS correct, right? I believe I read somewhere that over auxiliary it's just a mono signal. So far, when I play music in the car, I have to turn it up way louder than I would have to on the iPod, even with the media volume on the phone turned all the way up. Not a huge deal until we switch to the radio or a CD and almost bust our ear drums. Also, the sound quality just doesn't seem as good, and I have the stream quality set to High. What I'd really like to do is store the music on the phone
