This might come across as an silly inquiry but I'm curious...

If I am watching a film with stereo sound in landscape mode and I rotate the screen upside down, is the phone clever enough to recognise this and change the balance of the left and right speakers? Because if not, then the audio would appear to come from the wrong side if watching a movie...

Advance thanks

Ok thanks for reply, so actually, which is the correct mode for proper stereo image? Tilting the phone 90 degrees left into landscape mode or tilting the phone 90 degrees right into landscape mode?

Okay, so its something like this. When you rotate your phone while watching something, only the screen rotates. Why do you want the audio to pause for a moment until you lock down, and resume later ? Additionally these speakers are good enough on a mobile phone. These can never match the quality of the woofers that we all have. Why don't you use the earphones while watching videos ? . They don't shift the sound from left to right, when you rotate your phone !

According to power amp the bottom speaker is the right speaker. This is also how the m7 was.
