Motorola Droid X: Update Coming to Fix Quiet Notifications

By Jamie Pert - Aug 10, 2010

Since its release the Motorola Droid X has been pretty well-received, however we are hearing of one problem which is annoying users, this is the relatively quiet notifications.

Droid X owners will be pleased to hear that Motorola are listening to their customers and are apparently planning a fix for this particular issue, it is unclear as to whether this fix will be a tiny fix released over-the-air, or whether it will just come bundled in the large Android 2.2 FroYo update, which is expected soon.

There is no real quick fix you can do if you are experiencing this particular problem, however Motorola do suggest that you change your notification ringtone to one of the loudest options, these include Bolly Wood, Dancing’ Fool, Digital Phone, Road Trip, Gimme Mo’Town, Noisey One, Caribbean Ice, Very Alarming, Terrible Two’s or Third eye.

If Motorola do roll out an update separate to the Android 2.2 FroYo update we will keep you posted, for more details check out the link below.

Do you think the Droid X’s notification alerts are too quiet?

    I have the Droid X and I must agree with you Ben.. because I have not experienced any problem with the sound being to loud on mine… if anything my family is a little tired of hearing it say Droid..and it seems really loud… so i have placed it on vibrate.

  • Ben

    I've had no problem with the ringtones and notifications being too quiet, not at all. I wonder, could it be that those of us who want it louder may be those who have irritatingly loud ringtones? Of course, it very well could be that the problem only affects some of the Droid X's.

    I agree that the volume is way to soft even set on the highest setting. I love the phone and have called Motorola and verizon about the issue the more calls they get they will do something about it . They don't want the trouble I Phone had with it all over the news
    So call in your complaints PLEASE !!!

    The volume is my only issue with droid x. I miss a lot of calls and emails because it’s to quiet. A fix to make it louder would be nice.

  • Lee

    Recently switched from the iphone to the Droid X and the notifications and ringtones are definitely much quieter than the iphone!!! Would be very nice if they were louder, can barely hear my phone ring!

  • Charlie

    I love my DroidX… But it isn’t as loud as my original moto Droid.

    I would like a fix that raises volume level.

    Ps: swype is awesome, clearly the future.

    Coming from the original Droid, I am inclined to agree that notifications, ringtones, etc. are much softer on the X. While at times I did think that the original Droid was almost too loud, I find myself wishing that the X was a little louder. In my opinion the sound is not horrible on the Droid X, but it would definately be a great thing to have a fix to make it a little louder.

    I personally have not experienced the notifications being too quiet. Maybe im just one of the lucky ones. My only drawback with this phone is once you have enough apps and everything, and are using it the way it was designed to be used… The battery goes down to nothing.

    • Dave

      I totally agree. I find myself trying to find a charging port where ever I am! Other than that, the phone is sweet!

      I just wonder if the FroYo update will have anything to do with the battery usage….
