How to change the number of volume steps of your Android's volume settings
Are you feeling that Android's volume controls could have a more precise response to them? Well, the operating system doesn't let you make adjustments this fine-tuned, but a rooted device with the Xposed framework does give you this possibility. Just install 'VolumeSteps+' by developer P1nGu1n_. This is an Xposed module that lets you change the number of volume steps for different volume actions on your device. More specifically, you can do that for the alarm, music, notification, ringer, system, and in-call sounds. You can tweak the steps for each between 5 and 50.

Moreover, the module automatically changes the safe headset volume warning to correspond with the new number of music steps. It can also completely disable said warning.

VolumeSteps+ is compatible with Android ICS (4.0) and higher. It doesn't work correctly on most Samsung and some HTC Stock roms, though, but there's a compatibility mode option for LG devices running stock KitKat roms.

Installing the module requires a rooted device and the Xposed framework installed. If you have these bases covered and a few spare minutes, head to the slideshow below and treat yourself to some community-developed tweaks!
