The IPS screen on the Touchpad is ideal for watching videos. I am very pleased with video quality, but very disappointed with audio maximum level. I am happy with the quality of the audio, but the max volume level is significantly lower than any other mobile / tablet device I own. I contacted HP Live chat, no known solutions. All audio settings are set to max, but still very disappointing.
Tried a display unit at BB to ascertain if I may have a defective unit, but the display unit's max volume was too low as well. I am an older guy so don't want ear shattering audio, but do want to hear it. My hearing tests fine, and same video files have much higher volume on iOS, and Android phones / tablets.
I was watching a Hulu video with built in speakers, earbuds, and external speakers. In all cases, max volume was to low to enjoy. Switched to same Hulu video with Hulu + on iiPad 2, and had to turn down the volume on the external speakers because it was too loud at the same setting it was too low for the Touchpad. I'll take better audio level over Beats audio anyday. Both would be nice, but max level is more important for me. Hopefully a software update can correct this issue.
Has anyone else noticed a low max volume?
