here's a change request, inspired in our dear old N9.

When changing the volume using the volume button, the bar is shown in the upper part of the screen. It would be very useful and quicker to set if this bar could also be set via touch, like in the N9.

If I want to turn the volume down and then up again it's a lot of volume-button pressing.

Certainly an attractive feature which could go on a future road map once all the bugs have been sorted and binary blobs replaced:) Richard

i just tried it, and right now it works, but before keeping volume button pressed in did not result in gradual change of volume: this feature doesn't always work

You can just hold the volume button in up/down position and the bar gets adjusted. For me it is much easier to keep my finger there from where I started it, than change.from button to touch-slider. Also, the slider is very short, so by holding the volume button it gets from min to max quite quickly.

Well, in the N9 it was possible to change from Silent to Max Volume. It is not only about the volume level, but also about "silent" and "beep".
