I just got the M8 a little while ago, coming from an M7, and it seems quieter when talking to someone on the phone (not on speakerphone). Is this common or maybe just my phone? Thanks.

I've read of this issue on another forum.
From what I've read, the speaker is actually on the left side of the speaker grille.
If you look at the speaker grille, you can see that the right 1/3 of the speaker grille is actually for looks only.
So, it depends on how you hold the phone to your ear.
Supposedly.
I have yet to verify that it makes any difference.

I just flashed the official TMO firmware 1.57.531.7 and can say it made call volume audio a whole lot better.
