It's an Alcatel "One Touch Pop Icon" using OS 4.4.2 Kit Kat.


The apps I've tried don't seem to get it to a lower setting. I never use head phones. I doubt it's a problem with just my phone. I think it's working as designed. It's just too loud in a quiet setting.


Is there a way to safely dampen the volume at the speaker? It's in a case so I suppose I could put something over the speaker but I'm concerned that simply putting some tape over it might mess with the speaker's engineering.

I think the tape is a good idea. The thicker the better.


I don't know how that would hurt the speaker because it's hidden behind a grill down inside the phone.

It's not free and doesn't work with every device. It does have a 7 day fully fuctional trial to test compatiability with your device. It does have more granular controls than most apps of this type. It's an app called Fine Volume Control: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=opotech.finevolumev2&hl=en

EDIT: High volume at the lowest setting was a known issue with some devices with the KitKat OS, and earlier OS's as well.

Just access engineering mode [just google it] then Hardware Testing then audio then either normal mode or headset mode.

Select the type you want, probably media then just change the values. Each level stands for each step in the volumes rocker. level 0 is at one step not mute.
