Personally, I never have had the luck to feel happy about two things on the Android devices I have owned so far: the battery life and the speaker volume output. Being a regular commuter, these two things have always been a matter of concern for me. Nobody likes his/her phone to run out of battery on the mid way, nor does anybody feels good when he/she misses a call or mail notification.
I see Samsung’s latest flagship, the Galaxy S5, as a device that fails to impress the users on many fronts, especially when you compare it to phones like LG G2 and HTC One M8. The volume output of the phone’s speakers is one of the things many of its owners might not feel pleased with. If you own the Samsung Galaxy S5 and are not quite satisfied with the loudness of its built-in speaker volume, we have a good news for you.
XDA member stalli0nUK has prepared a volume boost mod for the Galaxy S5 that significantly increases the speaker volume of the device. His mod is available in three loudness levels: lite, medium and high. Besides, stalli0nUK has also released another mod for those who feel that their Galaxy S5’s headphone volume is not enough loud. Not happy with any of the volume mods? Don’t worry, as there is a restore version too installing which you can return back to stock volume intensity.
All four Galaxy S5 Volume Boost mods are available in recovery flashable Zips. It simply means that to be able to install the mod, you must not only have Galaxy S5 with root access but also a custom recovery like CWM or TWRP installed on it. If your phone meets both these requirements, you can download the desired Volume Boost mod file from below and flash it right away to enjoy louder volume.
The mod has been tested successfully on the international Galaxy S5 LTE SM-G900F, T-Mobile S5 SM-G900T, Canadian Galaxy S5 G900W8, etc. However, it should work on all Qualcomm models of the Galaxy S5.
