Maybe you are indeed holding it wrong. I used to feel the corner of my 5s on my ear and it was exactly in the right spot. But right now, I have to hold the corner higher because my ear would not be where the speaker is. Pay attention to how you hold it and observe how the volume changes. It's a DRASTIC change.Is anyone else experiencing low volume when talking on the phone. My volume is turned all the way up and sometimes the volume is very low. Protective covering has been removed
Are you sure you are not holding it wrong look at my post earlier... The 6 is bigger tooI know this thread is about the 6+. However, I started a thread about the 6's volume being too low while on a call.
Many others agreed to me. Volume while on a call is not as loud as the iphone 4/5. Hope this can be fixed in an update!

Well, I thought I tried moving it all around the first few days I had it. As I've said in other threads, it's fine around the house or in quiet areas.You were 100% correct. I moved it a bit and now I have to turn down the volume. Wow!!!! Thank you very much. Problem solved!!!!
My 3 days old iPhone 6 plus is also way too low compare to my 5S. the keyboard clicks are very weak, when I call someone on the phone the ringing that I hear b4 he picks up it's too weak.My volume is too low as well. Tons of previous conversation in forum about it. Definitely a documented issue. No one has confidently been able to conclude software or hardware issue. Sigh :-(
Even with the volume all the way up, I can barely hear my kids when I am talking to them at school. This is night school, so not to many people around. Going down the hallway helps only a little.Sorry to hear --- I definitely have noticed how "powerful" the 6+'s earpiece speaker seems to me. I usually have to have the volume at 30% for it to be comfortable. People I know who speak super quiet with the phone far from their mouth - I have to raise volume to 80% sometimes. But 100% is very uncomfortable to use even in a loud environment for me.
Back in my flip phone days - low volume phones caused so many problems for me (my Motorola Razr only worked in 100% silence on MAX and even then I asked people to repeat often). :/
My wife's 6+ seems to be plenty loud, I can hear the mother in law very clearly when she's talking about 5ft away (not on speaker).
I would. If you have a friend or know someone with another 6+ -- see if their volume is noticeably louder and see if they can't go with you. If not just be super nice and mention how other 6+s you see seem to have much louder volume.So what the consensus? Visit the Apple Store?
