    Increase Speaker volume on Android Phone

    1. Adjust the orientation of your smartphone

    Be careful where the location of your speaker is as sometimes it may get blocked by your fingers or when it’s lying on a surface. Make sure the audio is not blocked by the phone’s cover.

    If nothing is blocking the speaker, then try rotating the device 360 degrees and finding the right spot at which the speaker sounds best. The size of the room, external noises, and genre of music play a crucial role in the loudness of sound.

    You can even try cupping your hand around the speaker, this will make the sound waves emitting from the speaker bounce off from your hand and this will make the music sound louder. And instead of cupping, you can even place the smartphone inside a bowl, with the speaker facing downwards, this shall make the sound bounce off the bowl and make it sound louder.

    Speakers are delicate and sometimes when we use our phones in a dusty environment, minute particles tend to accumulate and block speakers. As a result, we may hear poor quality sound from our device.

    To clean the dust accumulated on the speaker use a fine brush to dust-off these particles and clean your speaker and its earpiece to be able to improve the sound quality. This may help in regaining the sound volume output of your device. If you are unable to do it, you can always visit the service centres and they do not charge much for cleaning the devices.

    This is an easy trick and can work on any phone anywhere. Just keep your iPhone in a bowl with the speakers pointing downwards. The idea behind this is that the sound waves will strike and bounce off the bottom and sides of the bowl in a way that will increase the output of your audio. A little science always helps in these cool tricks.

    3. Turn your iPhone upside down

    The speaker on the iPhone is at the bottom and can get easily blocked while lying down at the bed or on a desk. Also while listening to music or watching any content it’s important that the sound from the speaker hit a surface nearby, this will deliver louder audio.

    Make sure it’s propped up and upside-down otherwise the sound quality will be poor. The location of the phone indeed plays a role in the sound output because you do not want to hear muffled noises and spoil your experience of using the device.
