Audio Out Volume

The new J7 V seems OK except for the volume of the audio out. Even held up to my ear I can hardly hear the audio during a cell phone conversation. After talking for ~10 minutes the audio decreases by a quarter and cannot be understood. This; compared to using a Samsung S5 and Samsung S8 which offer "standard" audio out.
Anyone else fixed this ?
How ?
Thank you.
I left it out in the truck but shall add the serial number in a later transmission.
Perhaps others with a close serial number suffer similar discrepancy and should be avoided.

over in the "Sprint Lists Samsung Galaxy J7 Perx for $264" discussion:

Why Bother?

So the device loses NFC for Android Pay (which is gaining popularity, and in every other Android device now) and gains an FM Radio instead? Sorry, I'd much rather have a payment option than commercial radio any day.

The device is capable of WiFi Calling and VoLTE - but Sprint's network doesn't even support VoLTE, in fact, it may not fully support it for years to come with how they've deployed TDD-FDD-CDMA configuration in multiple carrier aggregate ways that don't necessarily play by the LTE-Advanced unified rules.

Why would anyone brag about this device on Sprint?
