Default Internal Speaker very quite while phoning

Hey there,

i have a problem since i got my One (april) but it seems to geeting worse. If i am on the phone its sometimes really hard to unterstand my partner because the speaker is so quite. I do not mean handsfree phoning, its just the internal speaker. It happens with all kinds of roms (rooted
+ s-off). Whats interesting, is that if the call is quite, and i go for handsfree it es quite as well, so i thinking about a software issue.

If i listen to musik the speaker is fine.

What could i do to search for the problem ? My phone is on the first hboot and running android 4.4 android revolution 41.0

any tips for me ?

thanks!

Their is a feature in the phone that lowers the volume of the ringtone when you pickup the phone ... it may be interfering with normal operation ..try disabling it

it's in Settings / Sound / Quiet ring on pickup and pocket mode

well their are a couple of other things .. there's a tiny mic on the backside of the phone that tells the phone your in a loud environment and to raise and lower in call volume, theirs a tweak to override it somewhere here on the forums .. I'll look for that. EDIT Found it >> http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2406524

The other thing is the actual speaker grill can get plugged up with debris have you tried cleaning those tiny holes ?

applied the mod. did not help as well.

I think theres really some sort of HW issue, because of all the different roms i used to use there was no changes.

maybe there is some sort of mini speaker in there with a problem, or a amplifier problem
