    I know that earlier in the summer Motorola stated that the low speaker was a "known bug" and was going to be addressed in an update. But it wasn't mentioned in the list of fixed in the official VZW .pdf.

    So, anybody who's done the 2.2 update, can you say yes or no whether there's a noticible change in volume of ringtones, etc?

    I think they did fix it. I was watching a youtube video after I got the 2.2 update and it did sound a lot louder then before. I have yet to try it with music but I will be doing that this afternoon as I have to drive downtown and will get back to you.

    Nice, much appreciated. Yeah, I'd be curious too if music/videos on the SD card have benefited as well. I'm hoping so.

    It's louder, I don't have any way to quantify it.

    I went from a brand new stock phone thinking "****, there's no way this will wake me up when I get an email", to not having any concern about it after the first release of the OTA leak. It's hard to say how much louder ringtones are, but they're most certainly louder.

    My google nav is significantly louder than before.

    I think the ringtones are actually louder now too.

    I don't think there was an improvement. I was worried when I noticed this wasn't addressed on the update page. It was my #1 thing I was excited about the OTA update for.

    Its really hard to tell unless you probably have a 2.1 versus 2.2 version to compare to.

    I will say this, it may be louder... But, it is not a night & day difference. I want to say it is the same and it my mind tricking me into thinking it is louder because it should be louder.

    I've played with multiple media options. Movies in gallery, songs in music, alarms, ring tones, and other notifications. Ringstones, notifications, etc. Seem to be about the same... While Songs in music and Movies in gallery seem slightly louder.. But they're also not what I am used to.

    I honestly don't think there was an improvement.

    But than again, I was hoping for a night/day difference.
