EXACTLY!!!!!! WTF?? would you depend on your phone to be your alarm. it wastes battery and an alarm clock is like $5 at walmart, same price a burger combo lol. But seriously if you can afford this phone i think you can buy an alarm clock.
Well I depend on my phone to wake me up. Well when i had a phone that could.But the fact is this speaker is unbelievably low. I miss calls everyday since I received this phone. I ended up just wearing a Bluetooth most of the day now. Dont get me wrong the phone is great. But a little more money could have went to a better speaker. So instead of having a all in one device. I had to go get a alarm clock cause I can't wear my Bluetooth when I sleep.
I have used my cell phone as an alarm clock for the last 6 years probably. I know MANY other people that do the same thing. In fact, I would say that among the people I know it is the norm.
Why would you use some crap $5 alarm clock when you could have an awesome phone play any ringtone, pandora, or do something else? I have been able to wake up to my phone alarm, but I don't think I can fully rely on it anymore like previous phones. I do, however, like the idea of using a speaker to boost the volume.
For boosting the volume of ringtones, I would recommend using an audio software like Audacity, Sound Studio, (insert whatever here) to boost the audio in the signal. That would make the ring a bit louder, even on a weaker speaker. It does have some, albeit limited, effectiveness.
Yeah I guess. But paying for a super phone and you can barely hear it bothers me a little.
Perhaps after I use the phone more say...outside...I'll think it's unacceptable. I'm sure they will do a fix since the default is sorta low-ish. I have a ringtone of dogs barking and it would absolutely wake me up. If I didn't have an alarm.
My Omnia HD's volume on setting 2 is the same as this phone on max volume....!!! Very disappointing.
This is close to a deal breaker for me!!! Even with hacking this in the future, the fact that it has a mono speaker will only contribute to some serious distortion by messing with the PreDR gain's... Hmmmmm!!!???
