    Not rooted.

    Updated the OTA 8.1 last night. First use today, my extra speaker is now so quiet (on full volume) that it's functionally useless.

    Trying to make a call on speakerphone is marginally louder than holding the phone away from my head with the speaker off. Watching Youtube is borderline impossible without being in the quietest room.

    I would not update your phone, if you can avoid it. So far I haven't seen any feature I like enough in this update, to deal with this bullsh!t.

    Is the volume on the external speaker all the way up?

    Yes of course, I wouldn't have made this post without turning the volume up first. The entire system is maxxed out.

    Does Oreo have some sort of auto attenuation built in? I just fired up Youtube again and started to play a video, the intro music started at a more respectable volume and then dimmed... I swiped the video back to the beginning, and the beginning of the intro was now just as quiet.

    As if there's some built-in AGC in Oreo that's gone rogue and attenuating everything played through my speaker...
