    I didnt receive the update yet, but to be honest I dont want to update my phone until 7.0 comes, as the 3.5.3 is excelent for me. I have no issues at all running this version and I dont want to ruin my phone for an update that really has nothing to fix for me since nothing is broken. If it had the december security patch I might have thought about it.. If what you re saying is the case with this update, its a serious problem that needs to be adressed with a hotfix asap.

    I've noticed the same for playback via headphones (not tested using internal speakers). Its not a huge drop when using Google Play Music, but is really noticeable when playing video using VLC & YouTube apps.

    Update on this tried a wired pair normally if not louder.

    So it's not any earphones.

    Its any Bluetooth audio device has dumbed down in volume by at least half.

    Listening to my music now and it's like someone is whispering to me in my ears.

    I had this problem when I first got my phone and it sorted itself out, no idea what happened or how it fixed itself but it did in a matter of days
