Question [Q] Does the Z1 have stereo speakers?

Simple enough question. Several sites say it does (see for example this) while several other sites say it doesn't (e.g. this). Why the conflicting information?

It has a mono speaker at bottom.
No Stereo.

Under the grid at the bottom there is 1 speaker. You hear sound from right side because it's made like that.

I would assume that's to do with the positioning of the microphone. It's like the iPhone 4 and 4s, two 'speakers' at the bottom but one was really a mic.
If it's broke, use a hammer. If that fails, you're not using a big enough hammer.

No not at all, I noticed a while ago that if you cover the left hand side of the speaker it affects the sound, covering the right side doesn't. So it could well be there is a microphone under the mesh, one sides a speaker, one sides a mic.

Or it could be my speaker is buggered like the OP.

so it seems big grid is for design and also protection of both speaker and mic.

Basically yes
