Default Please can someone check this?

Hi folks,

Just got my new G2 today. I noticed that when playing music sound is only coming from the bottom right speaker grille. If I cover this there's no sound. Can someone check theirs and confirm if this is normal? Is the left speaker grille just a dummy then? Thanks!

Same here and I have the AT&T variant. The right side is the only side that sound comes out of. I'm thinking the left 'speaker' is the Microphone. Just like on my iPhone 4 there were two speakers, but one of them was a Microphone and the other was the actual speaker.

Thanks for that richiev. I suspected that was the case as it certainly seems loud enough and it would be odd to place stereo speakers so close together. Cheers for confirming it for me!

They all only have one speaker. Verizon chose not to give it the stealth look.

One strange thing I have found is if I'm playing music with media volume set to full, if I put ringer volume to silent it lowers the music volume, ,,, or is it just me?

That's interesting. The same thing happens here. I guess it's a bug of some kind.
