Alright, not too bad since GSM Arena got 68 dB or something around that. 74 should be around the same as the iPhone.

I can't measure mine yet since I don't have it, but I'll probably get it back if a few days, so I'll check it out then.

It would be cool if more people here could measure their Ultras too. Just give us the name of the app/tool you used

Ya, but I think this is all very variable, and not very reliable. Turning around and using the app on the ZU to measure the Note 3, which is definitely MUCH louder than the ZU, gave me a maximum reading of 54 dB. Not possible.

The speaker of the Z, Z1 and Ultra is like most Sony phone speakers: Crap!!!
It has nothing to do with the speaker being waterproof. Have a look at the old Xperia active or those Samsung B Series outdoor phones. Their speakers are much louder and fuller sounding than those tiny audio signals from the Z series. It's embarrassing when the "Best of Sony" sounds mich worse than "Middleclass of Sony" But beside that and the horrific Wife problems I'm starting to like the device after 5 days of use. But if the Wife problem persists I have to exchange it.
