    1. I have the same problem. I have just received this model and the phone is ringing veeery loud even if the volume is set on minimum.
      What is the problem? How can I resolv it? Pls help me with an answer as this problem is very annoying.
      Thank you,

    1. Did you ever solve this problem? Got the phone to ring but can’t get the message notifications out of silent.

  2. I am having Huawei P9 Plus, I am facing same problem like other users, when ever I reduce the media and call sounds, it will automatically set to the maximum volume whenever I receive a notification. It is frustrating me and I am going to change it if I can not find a solution.

  3. There is no volume adjustment for notifications on e mails, sms’s, whats app etc. It is always on full volume. Very irritating in the middle of the night.

  4. I have noticed you don’t monetize your website, don’t
    waste your traffic, you can earn additional cash every
    month because you’ve got high quality content. If you want to know how to
