    Are the speakers are loud on this phone?
    Asked by: Sargis H.
    It's on par or slightly louder than others I've owned, like iPhones. That said, high volume equals some distortion. If you want to listen to tunes without earbuds or headset, they're Ok, but if you're looking for a mini audio player, it is a phone and not optimized for max volume/ boom box kind of listening.

    Can this phone record audio (without video) in hi-res format? Or, how good are the mics at recording audio only?
    Asked by: David E.
    Only experience trying to record engine sounds while driving my car. Picks up a lot of extraneous noise even though it isn't a convertible, probably would work OK with a wind screen on the mic.

    Compared with the US version I've seen on Amazon, is there something different about this phone since it has Ultra in the title?

    I apologize for any confusion. This is a new US version. If it was listed as Ultra, that has been corrected.
