    We are looking for "Pocket mode." It says, "Pocket mode - Ring louder when phone is in a pocket or bag".
    What this option does is it allows the phone to ring louder when it knows it is in a confined or enclosed space like a pocket or bag where the sound will be muffled, and it will be more difficult to hear it. It's a very useful option to have turned on because it obviously allows our phones to make a bigger effort to communicate and to let us know that somebody is trying to contact us.

    If we have a white checkmark inside a green box, then this option is selected.

    If we don't want this option to be selected, we can it turn it off.
    We may find that it is unnecessary if we can hear the phone easily enough, and it just makes the phone much louder than we want. If we don't want that, then we can turn this option off by pressing down on the green square, and the checkmark will disappear.

    Now, if we don't often put our phone in a bag, and the phone is always with us, we probably don't need this option on.
    Having it off will save some battery as well. If, however, we do want the HTC One M8 to ring louder when it is in a pocket or bag, then press down on the checkbox to activate this option.
