My rear Speaker is really weak. Talking on speakerphone with any background noise renders it useless. Is this just my model or others have the same issues?

Mine is pretty similar. As well as my friend who has one on T-Maybe (hahaha). It vibrates at full volume.

It's a bummer. I don't expect the world from every phone but at this point the least we could get in such a premium is a decent speaker. Kind of pisses me off.

Every review I've watched so far said this has one of the loudest loudspeakers ever. Weird.

My speaker sounds great. No distortion. Best speaker on any Samsung device so far.

I have to agree on it being a loud speaker. Earlier this evening I just streamed from music from the Play Music app and it was remarkably loud and clear.

Sure, it was no BoomSound and you could for sure tell that the sound source was a cell phone, but it was definitely one of the better speakers I've encountered on a phone.

Put me in the unhappy with the S5 speaker column. yes, it can be "loud" but it often seems "tinny" with distracting vibrations through the back cover that make the device seem hollow. subjective opinion obviously

On my second one. Both, same observation as yours. Loud as Hell, but "tinny" and the '"rattle" when turned up is really, really disturbing. Also, does anyone else feel a "bumping" of the speaker through the center of the back of the phone when on loudspeaker and/or playing media? It's almost like the phone's back is going to blow off due to this heavy beating from the sound through the back-casing. Again, second specimen; same issue(s)...
