Yes, I've read the threads on the problem (or lack of problem) with the low volume on the Nexus One speakers. The threads quickly devolve into a debate about whether the volume is or isn't low, some saying that it is, others saying that it isn't (and suggesting that those who think the volume is low must be listening to the ring or media with the phone's speaker muffled). The problem is that those of us who are having problems with the volume can't tell whether we are just expecting more volume than others, on the one hand, or have a defective phone, on the other. What's needed is some reference to how loud the speakers should be. So let me try to get at the problem this way: When I have my Nexus One volume set to maximum (in Settings, confirmed by maxing the volume rocker on the side of the phone) both the ring tone and the alarm clock are less than half the volume of my prior phone, which was a Razr v3, and this is with both phones held away from any obstructions of the speakers. Anyone know if this is normal for a Nexus One?
