Anonymous, 17 Dec 2016While front facing speakers are good for some people, the dimmed volume is unsuitable for many... moreNo they dont. There is no volume chip. Only DAC chip. And its perfectly good. Ring at 67 db is perfectly good and loud. Its Sonys choice to keep volume lower.
There are really only a couple louder ring phones out there with front stereo speakers, but those you mentioned are not those, maybe nexus 6, but that one had no ip protection....
Ali Bashir, 18 Dec 2016What dimmed sound lol, most times you need the volume. Sorry, i meant you need to lower the volume.
shoaib94, 17 Dec 2016iphone 6s or xperia xz ? which one should i get?6s?? Even iphone 7 is no match for xz...

saintshaka, 16 Dec 2016don't buy this crap phone. Price is too high and you easily buy an iphone(if you like ios) or ... moreSo you mean to say iPhone 7 price is cheaper than xz.. Really tell me how much. I'm also going to buy a new phone and xz is 48k in my country and Ip7 68k and have check both device and I prefer xz anytime over Ip7.
Anonymous, 18 Dec 2016You can't even hear anything if you bring it to crowd environment (train station, walking outs... moreI think every phone are same, people have to put the speaker/speakers area face out in the pocket, then it is clear enough. If you say the at the train station can't here the ringtone, every phone are same too, because that environment very noisy.
Btw, actually I can't find people who use the louder ringtone at the public, even when people watching video or place the phone behind us, while receive a call we also don't set the maximum loudness because it hurt people's ears.
shoaib94, 17 Dec 2016iphone 6s or xperia xz ? which one should i get?Go for xz of course,far more superior ,newer flagship,better camera,performance and all of the aspect,ohh and highest IP rating also
If this low volume issue just a troll or just people this day have alot damage hearing issue,cause my z5p vibrate i can already hear from my kitchen to living room
Tann Hauser, 17 Dec 2016At 67 db you hear whispers? Either you only troll, or indeed need a hearing aid. Thus, no phon... moreYou can't even hear anything if you bring it to crowd environment (train station, walking outside, etc). And many people don't like to use earphones.
Anonymous, 17 Dec 2016Not the best? Why man? iPhone 7, S7 Edge, LG G5, HTC 10 even OnePlus 3 with 6GB huge ram suck ... moreYeah you're right. Sony sucks, compared to china phones, iPhone 7, S7 Edge, LG G5, HTC 10 even OnePlus 3 with 6GB huge ram.

Tann Hauser, 17 Dec 2016You assume too much.
It was a shopping mall store full of people. Thats an average case scena... moreWhile front facing speakers are good for some people, the dimmed volume is unsuitable for many people. Sony's ring volume of 67db is lower than average on smartphones...e.g. ring volumes, LG G5 -73db, Samsung S7-71db, Iphone-75db, Moto G4-72db, Huawai mate9 -85db, etc, etc.
Sony needs to change the sound volume chip to catch up with the competition.
Dimmed volume is just not acceptable in 2016.
Anonymous, 17 Dec 2016Even 50db would be loud enough in a quiet store enviroment...but in a real world, 67db is lowe... moreYou assume too much.
It was a shopping mall store full of people. Thats an average case scenario. And 67 db was loud enough.
People forget we are talking about front facing speakers here, not bottom placed. So if in pocket it wont ring as loud as bottom placed one.
But its a perfectly capable and loud enough speaker. If one want front facing stereo speakers on a phone for best media consumation experience they must be acceptable to dimmed sound while wearing the phone around in a pocket.
Thats all there is to it.
Tann Hauser, 17 Dec 2016Should be careful when trolling, should ve written "cant hear..." at least. Went to the store... moreEven 50db would be loud enough in a quiet store enviroment...but in a real world, 67db is lower than average and not enough volume. At least, you have finally touched a XZ.
Jojo, 17 Dec 2016I tried it. Only heard whispers from it. Lol.Yeah sony is the king of whisper class volume.
