    Hi everyone. Just got new pixel 4a. Phone is really good but there is 2 things that bothers me.
    1. Notification on lock screen at very dim..
    2. Sound notification sound very low. Set to 90 PRC can just hear it but then 100 proc volume is just way to loud.
    Have anyone have the same problem?thanks

    Are you talking about the black-and-white always-on display? That's supposed to be very dim, but it should automatically adjust a bit depending on the brightness of the surrounding environment - assuming that you've got Adaptive Brightness enabled.

    Is it only notification sounds which are very low or is media affected too? Like if you play a video on YouTube is that still barely audible?

    Try turning adaptive brightness on to see if that has any effect on the AOD brightness.

    Check under Settings > Sound. There are separate volume controls for Media, Calls, Rings/notifications, and Alarms. Make sure the notification volume is turned up appropriately.

    I definitely experience item 2 - notification sounds are pathetically weak, unless I crank up the volume, in which case the ringtone is deafening. You can't control notification & ring volume separately on this phone.

    That's correct. The ringtones and notifications share the same media stream and can't be controlled independently.
