Hey kristiendevolder, I noticed this myself on my 920 recently after upgrading to Amber and specifically asked Nokia about it through their online chat:
I updated through Nokia Software Updater for Retail and now every time I reset the device the volume changes to 13. I contacted Nokia support directly and they say this is by design:
I have checked that this will be a normal behaviour of phone, Muessig. This is to comply with European audio limitation, which is mandatory in new devices in EU in 2013, to avoid the possible damage of ear hearing. You can still adjust the volume level up to 30 with the volume key on the side. Muessig (9:35:03)
So you can confirm that after the Amber update every Lumia device will automatically reset its volume level to 13 regardless of what it was before and that this is a feature and not a bug. I will have to change it myself every single restart from now on? Rose (9:35:38)
That is right, Muessig. This is to comply with European audio limitation.
