    I'm thinking about trying a Z30...but I've heard the earpiece speaker volume is almost too low to be heard even turned up to max.

    I don't have many total deal breakers, but this is one of them since I have some diminished hearing in my "phone ear".

    Has anybody gotten a real fix on this yet?

    I've tried the Verizon Z30 with a Verizon sim card as well as an AT&T sim card. Call audio volume seemed louder on AT&T; call audio quality was still good (but quieter) on Verizon. I went into Phone > Settings > Call Audio and set it to "Treble boost" and call audio is a bit louder and easier to hear.

    It looks like you're currently on Verizon (based on your signature), perhaps go into the store and explain that you'd like to try out a call on their demo phone? They may have to put in a different sim but it seems like a very reasonable request. Note that Verizon is only selling the phone on-line but does have the Z30 on display in their stores (at least the tiny store near me did :-)

    I hope so. I'm also considering this phone but low speaker volume is a deal breaker for me.

    I got a z30. Volume is the last thing you need to worry about on phones or speaker . Its souped up bigtime.

    Did you find it low before an update? Or was it always loud to you?

    For my Z10, not Z30, I have to keep my volume close to maximum to the other side. Any where around 50% to 65% it is as if the person on the other side is whispering to me. Sound issue better be non existent.
