Default Unable to hear a thing

I have been using the z2 for over a week now and the call volume is so low I can't hear a damn thing in HK.

Volume is up to max, the equaliser etc all bumped up max.

Is this phone faulty? My other phones gain is totally fine but this phone is unusable

Weird, might be defective because mine's loud and crisp when taking phone calls. Try flashing a different firmware and if that doesn't work you should seek your warranty.

Just for your information: for talking at home I use lowest volume level (it is enough) so probably yours is defective.

Phone is not rooted yet so using stock. Hence the lack of gain boost as I am waiting for the ta backup on the z2 as it is still early days.

Try factory reset and reboot 2-3 times before using.

Does this seriously work as the gain is set in firmware I thought
