I like having the front firing speakers since my finger sometimes covers the speaker when I hold the phone in landscape with one hand. With the bottom speaker, I have to kind of "cup" the speaker to "direct" the sound frontwards. The sound isn't bad, but I do prefer the front firing speakers for this reason.

On calls, with Verizon HD calling, it sounds amazing. With regular calls, it sounds pretty good usually, but if I'm outside, I often find myself selecting the "Turn on extra volume" option.

I'd have to say it sound a bit on the quiet side. Since it is very similar to my G4, I've already got use to it.

I traded my S5 in for an S8 and transferred my ring tones over from the S5 to the S8. Even at full volume on the S8 they are much quieter than the S5.

I love modem strike online and it sucks cause how you hold the phone it covers up the sound. Sucks. You can't 'cup' and play

My S7A is the loudest phone I have heard compared to all my friends and co-workers.
Speaker on the S8A is really that bad?
I got my S7A just befor the S8A became available, I'm considering dumping my S7A and getting the S8A.
Hmmm, maybe a major update might include a fix for the amplifier.
Could also be the location of the speaker on the S7A.......

I actually just had to send mine in due to the loudspeaker being all distorted sounding. Was really disappointed because I love this phone. I sent the phone in for warranty repair. I will reply with how it turned out.

Coming from a Moto X Pure, which had stereo front facing speakers, This was is the best way to describe it. It totally sounds like laser beam sounding tones and it drives me insane.

I hope so. Got the phone off Ebay, and at first, thought it was a defect.

Speaker isn't loud enough, need a proper working mod, to increase it a bit. Currently using "dual speaker mod", but it doesn't increase the volume itself. Dolby atmos is crap, and "viper4android" doesn't work at all. Any suggestions?
