I had a case of hardware failure, not software. The speakers started
failing sometimes, and then always, in my BQ E5 (not E4.5). I sent it
for repair to BQ and it was fixed and had my phone back in four
days. It failed again, I think once in a month, and I got the sound
back by pressing on the  back iat the bottom part with both fingers,
with the screen facing me (as I read in Internet from users with
Android). It looks like failing speakers is a common issue in this
model of BQ, also with Android, I don't know about the E4.5.

I saw this a couple of times, haven't seen it for three months or so
now. In may case, restarting the phone fixed it. I think in my case it
was caused by some misbehaving application. 

But overall my BQ E5 with UT is very usable, unless the hardware
fails I think I may be able to make it last until (hopefully) we have
a snap-based device.
