    Hi all,

    I have owned my Nexus 5 for a few good years now and have to say it has held up perfectly!

    However, recently I have noticed that the speaker volume has decreased significantly.

    For example, when the bar is half full on the sound control, the beginning of "We will rock you" is almost inaudible and you really have to listen in.

    I remember during the first year or so being able to hear it comfortably at half full, or is this just me becoming deaf? XD (strangely enough the high volume is still quite loud (80db) from phone mic. but with some distortion notable)

    I just wanted to ask before I go and buy a replacement speaker that it is an issue with the hardware or some settings on the phone?

    Kind regards,
