Default Phones with the loudest speaker?

Which cellphones have the loudest speaker/ringer? Current phone is kept in a purse and the user has issues hearing the ring of incoming call.

It's a little old, but I did find this chart from one of AT's phone reviews:



No idea how much this impacts the ringer, but it looks like the Nexus S might be the loudest. You could also try going to a store and testing them out by cranking the volume and testing out ringers to see which sounds loudest.

Thanks for the suggestions. I will look into Motorola phones as smartphone functionality is not needed.
