Is it just me or are also your devices ringing only through lower speaker? In a way, it seems logical, but it is way to quiet.

When I play media (f.e. with Poweramp) or even when I'm selecting a ringtone in settings, it plays through both speakers (fairly loud), but at incomnig call only lower speaker rings and unfortunately at least for me it's not loud enough (my previous Note 4 was way louder).

Suggestions (rooting is not an option)?

Ringer and notification don't play through earpiece. Only Media.

Oh, crap... 1000$ phone and I can't hear it ringing, unless I'm right beside it in a quiet environement... :(.
Are you serious? Dude, change your ringtone or something. It's plenty loud. If you can only hear it in a quiet environment when its ringer is up all the way, you either have a bad unit or bad hearing.

I tried many different ringtones and they are all loud enough, when previewing (t.i., playing through both speakers). But during the actual call and only on lower speaker, they are not.
I certainly don't have bad hearing, but I'm afraid, that the unit may be bad. Although, media plays very good and loud (both speakers).

hate to be that guy, but are you sure your ring tone volume isn't lowered? You can set them it independently of media, notifications, and system volume

Rigtone slider (and all the others too) all the way to the right, additionally set to MAX with Tasker on every incoming call...
Maybe I only see this problem because the ringtones were really loud until last week on my Note 4 :).
