Default LG G2 volume glitch?

I've read a few topics on the G2 regarding it having low volume but recently I was messing with my nieces and I ran into something I believe is a glitch. When you lower the ringtone volume it also affects the media volume. Playing with it I was so disappointed that I checked the media volume was maxed all the way (which it was). I then selected settings button next to it and ringtone volume was on vibrate so I decided to raise the bar while Pandora ran. Increasing this volume made the media volume get noticeably louder. It seems the left speaker takes an increase/decrease depending on your ringtone volume. Can anyone else check this out? Ps I'm messing with a Sprint G2 if it matters..

There are no left and right speakers...only the one on the right. The left side is the microphone.

I noticed this also. I thought it was due to my G2 being rooted with the volume boosting mod.

When you have your ringtone on vibrate the media volume seems to be only outputting 70 percent or so even if you have the slider to max volume. Once you move the ringtone off vibrate, the sound instantly jumps to 100 percent. Weird...

Actually it gives it an impressive boost! The louder you max your ringtone volume the louder the media volume gets lol. I'm sure it's a glitch but at least I found a way to not be so annoyed with low media output. Now I actually tell my niece to lower her darn games. That's what I get for tinkering around with it Lol

Oh ok that's good to know. Extremely weird tho that increasing ringtone volume make it sound like the left side is picking up volume. Maybe the increase in volume is so much it has the speaker pouring out the left side too. You sure that mic is not both?
