Its a phone yeah, not a 'boom box'
The speaker is 100% fine for everyday use of a phone. For phone calls on speaker phone it works well. Its not loud, but it does not need to be.
If you expect to use your 'phone' as a portable boom box then you are not really in touch with reality.
Also worth noting EU law does dictate the volume output of audio equipment that is used close to the ear.
