My speaker max volume is too low. (Videos, music, speakerphone ) Also the quality of the speaker is not the best. I noticed it when playing -the first one- ring tone with max volume. I hope (and think) that this is not related to a hardware issue since my speaker is already changed by optima service.

I did a comparison with my n900. jolla 100% volume .EQUAL. n900 70% volume Can someone confirm that?

Edit 11.12.14 Well my Jolla had an hardware failure! It was a first one and sent it for repair 4 times. Finally I got a new device. Did the comparison with the n900 and now the max volumes are almost equal! :D

The ringer volume needs to be increased as well

Yes the ringer volume could be also louder. The speaker volume general.. Just in case you dont know that, but if you have an ambiance active you have to adjust the volume from gallery -> ambiance.

This is definately related to HW and I assume it has nothing to do with SW, unfortunately.

@TK thank you I didn't know!

@torcida couldn't disagree more, since the speakers are clearly capable of more, and so is pulseaudio, what needs to be done is pulseaudio amplification or some other software solution

I agree that the volume is not that high. I believe the simplest solution would be through pulseaudio, since it handles volume over-amplification natively, with filters AFAIK
