Hi! Every one who has a Z1C, I got problem that my Z1C's External Speaker is Mono! Only Left Channel can be Heard!

First of all, I think the Right Channel is broken! To test it, I download this mp3 file, the sound start from left then go to right, you can find it here:
address: http://pan.baidu.com/s/1dDf4QK5 Pass: ibwa
if it tell you input a pass, then input the pass above!
Then, Sure! It's Mono! The External Speaker broadcasts all sound of both Channel!

And some more I should tell you is that, I root my Z1C following the guide:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2634196

Is there something wrong? Or the Z1C's External Speaker is just MONO?

If you use Poweramp you can set the sound outpout to mono so you here both channels on the speaker

There isn't any single-speaker phone out there currently that isn't mono, AFAIK, so I'm not sure what you were expecting. Even iPhone is mono, and has a microphone under the other speaker grill ... you'll need to look at dual speaker options like HTC One or Xperia Z2 if you really need stereo on loudspeaker.

Also questions should go in the Q&A forum - read the stickies.

In your phone, your speakers are max 12cm from eachother. In order to perceive the true stereo effect, your ears should be like 12 cm away from the phone. Additionally, sound quality from speakers of this size can never be anything better than incredibly bad, so honestly: why bother?

You want stereo? Use a headset. You want stereo and quality? Use a decent headset.
