Have you encountered volume problems on your smartphone? I think most owners of modern gadgets know what I’m talking about. If your device stopped playing multimedia content well or had other problems, it’s worth finding out how to increase the volume on Android through the engineering menu.
How to increase the parameter?
It is clear that we will not talk about the usual settings options and buttons on the smartphone panel, nor will we touch all kinds of programs to increase the sound. We will talk about a special section created for developers and those users who are not afraid to experiment with technology and clearly understand why they need it.
Many people have noticed that if there is no headset connected to the equipment, such as a Prestigio phone, the sound settings are the same, but once it is connected, all the values immediately change. Here are some examples:
- When listening to a track you turn on the speaker at full power, but when you connect headphones the sound level changes (usually becomes quieter, it all depends on the model of the device and firmware version);
- When watching a movie with a headset connected, the sound is at 50%, but when you make an incoming call, this level changes to general volume.
- When calling, you need to increase the connection volume, but when you switch it, the sound becomes quieter, sometimes the person you are calling cannot hear you at all.
These situations occur because the phone has poorly configured sound modes.
How to activate the engineering menu and increase values on Android?
Before you decide to change something in your gadget, read the article carefully. It is best to mark on a piece of paper the parameters that were set by default. This way you can protect yourself and put everything back the way it was if you don’t like something. To turn on the engineering menu uses the usual set of characters, it is worth remembering these commands, they differ depending on the phone model:
- *#*#54298#*#* or *#*#3646633#*#* – devices with processor Mediatek;
- *##8255#*#* /*###4636#*#* – devices Samsung;
- *##3424#*#* / *###4636##* or *###8255#* – for HTC;
- *###7378423#* – manufacturer Sony;
- *##364633##* – equipment from Philips, Fly, Alcatel;
- *##2846579##* – gadgets Huawei.
For models like ZTE you can see the command in the following screenshot:
Choose the combination for your smartphone, enter it and immediately get to the engineering menu. The structure and characteristics of this section are usually different. The “Audio” subsection is required for further actions.
Do not be frightened by the huge number of incomprehensible symbols and strings. In Android OS these modes have their own designations, let’s consider them one by one:
- settings of standard modes – activated, if nothing is connected to the smartphone;
- headset item – used after pairing with speakers and headphones;
- loudspeaker – intended for use with speakerphone on the gadget;
- loudspeaker with headset – active if you connect something to the device and put it on speakerphone for incoming and outgoing calls;
- phone talk section – used during a regular phone call on Android.
The last three modes we will not need, it is better not to go there:
- values to customize the information;
- call recording – is not created independently;
- boundaries for audio recording, supporting quick search, playback and saving.
Lots of volume settings
If you use these modes and the engineering menu competently, it’s easy to adjust all settings on Android 5.1 and other versions to your needs. After getting into any of the modes, all sorts of sound characteristics will be open. I’ll point out the main settings that are a must-have:
- characteristics for internet calls;
- Microphone sensitivity level on Lenovo or any other device;
- the conversation speaker (located near the ear);
- the second speaker (many models do not have one);
- Echo settings – it is better not to touch, when you change the settings during a conversation you may not hear the interlocutor, only yourself;
- Changing the multimedia volume on the Android (increase, decrease);
- Changing the sound of incoming calls;
- the sound of the radio.
Based on your needs and goals, you need to select the section where you want to change something. Under the settings selection on your Android, you will see a list of volume steps, seven in total. Each step corresponds to one press on the volume control key. At each level you can set a different value in the “Value is 0~255”.You cannot go beyond these limits, you can only increase up to 255.
Let’s look at an example: to change the sound of the incoming call on the Asus smartphone, you need to go into the engineering menu and select “LoudSpeaker Mode”, after that in the parameters click “Ring” and carefully change everything you need.
Now you also know how to increase the volume on Android through the engineering menu, but do not put the maximum allowable values at once, because the speakers may not work properly. I hope this article was useful for you.
