    For those of you with first/second generation devices, is you notification volume significantly lower after the official update?

    Me and many more that installed leaks ever since 10.3.0.xxxx (on Q10 personally) have experienced about 20-30% lower notification volumes, including alarm, compared to 10.2.1.

    Do you experience similar problem with the official release?

    UPDATE:
    OS 10.3.1.2558 Indeed fixes the notification volume issue. I would say it is a notch lower than 10.2.1 which is a good thing because my speaker was cracking (too loud) before.
    Lesson learned: BBRY doesn't really monitor this forum for bugs, contrary to what many believed.

    Yes, I noticed the same problem.
    I upgraded to 10.3.1 yesterday and this morning the volume of the alarm was lower.

    I think it is too. Also, adjusting the volume in settings suggests that at least half of the volume slider range is so low that it's pretty much useless.

    I agree, can't even hear the notification through half the slider's movement on my Q10. And full is barely audible and certainly not loud enough if phone is in pocket.
    It may seem like a minor issue, but the Berry is meant to be the ultimate communication tool...

    To be honest I haven't yet noticed any difference, now either that's because I'm a lonely git or my hearing is crazy, z10 STL100-2

    On my Q10 it's definitely lower, and nearly inaudible when tucked away in clothing.

    I've just tried my alarm, by the ringing in my ears it seems the same as 10.2.1, not sure about calls or texts yet

    My Alarm seems fine, as does my ringtone. I only have low volume on text, BBM, email etc

    I haven't noticed a difference yet. My alarm level was about the same and app notifications seemed fine. Will monitor throughout the day.

    It seems that low volume issues are only for Q10. My Q10 in 50 per cent of volume slider have no sounds. I've tested it with my friends and Z10 and Passport are OK. Anyone can tell me what the hell is wrong?

    Funny, I've been using a 10.3 leak on my Q10 for some time and have been waiting/hoping for the official 10.3.1 release to fix this for some time now. I figured the Q10 low volume issue would be fixed for the official release.

    So what the hell then, 6 months of leaks and Beta testing, hundreds of complains and it hasn't been addressed yet.

    BlackBerry, you son of Apple (The Cupertino one).

    I didn't know Passport was affected. I thought it's only the older devices.

    We have Classics since December. Notification volume has been low. Missing calls and messages regularly. Was hoping on hope that this update would fix it and the crappy calendar. Wildly not acceptable on a BlackBerry.
    Back to the 9900 I go.
    And thus ends my enthusiastic support of BlackBerry.

    I installed over 10 different leaks of oof 10.3.x.xxxx and the notifications have been low on everyone so far. Although I didn't do erase with the latest leak, I've tried that previously and it was no help.

    Low volume on my passport. First they had the fade out of voice during calls and now you cant hear the phone ringing. Not really the definition of a usable phone is it....

    Ditto here. I assumed it was a Q10 leak issue, but it's no better now the official update has arrived.
