it is low. i've had two now and they're both the exact same. only difference i noticed between the two was there was more banding on the screen versus the first one which was perfect in my eyes.
i'm hoping someone finds a way to amp up the volume via a mod over at xda. i don't care to use another app just to boost the volume. i hear mine just fine except for the alarm. i need it to be a tad louder.
