Proper etiquette aside (hint: don't use speakerphone while doing your "business" in a public bathroom), rate this thread to express how you think the Samsung Galaxy S9's speakerphone performs. A higher rating indicates that you love it: it's loud and it's clear.

Then, drop a comment if you have anything to add!

definitely samsung had improved a lot over numerous iterations and should deserve a pat in the back for finally bringing stereo speaker output to its phones. however, the S9 isn't the best, but also no slouch.

from scale 1 to 10 , i'd rate :

clarity : 8
bass : 5

hint : activate the dolby atmos feature and tweak to your liking, you'll be surprised how much it can improve the sound quality!

Best Speaker experience in S series. Thumbs Up. I am a S series fan and held all S series from the start (except S6 & S8). I hold the S9 256 gb version.. S9 is miles better than any phone on this planet with the optimized user experience in all categories (form factor, weight, sound, video, game, browsing, etc....) The only thing I see it should have been 6 gb ram inorder to be futuristic. The flagships getting released in 2019 will have 6/8gb ram as standard.

Is cool
The sound is really good. It's not the best I think, there are others with more bass? But the epicness is enough for me. Watching Anime battles or WHATEVER you want is really cool with dolby.

And it's really loud.

9/11

Quality and clarity is outstanding I give it a eight 8
I just thought Dolby Atmos would have a deeper affect than it does but I am in no ways dissatisfied.

I got the Samsung Galaxy S9 at the beginning of the month and one of my biggest disappointement is the mic quality in speakerphone mode, when using a VoIP app or VoLTE (when the HQ sound is on).
The noise cancellation sounds terrible, other people hear my voice muffled or just cannot hear me... and Samsung seems to give no **** about that (it could be a software problem?). (I'm running Pie, final version).

Here are some threads on other forums of people experiencing the same problem:
- https://us.community.samsung.com/t5/...es/td-p/331085
- https://forums.androidcentral.com/sa...e-muffled.html
- https://www.reddit.com/r/GalaxyS9/co...akerphone_fix/

- https://thedroidguy.com/2019/01/gala...r-mode-1084984 (of course, the solution are off-topic)
- https://forum.xda-developers.com/gal...-call-t3790974
- https://forums.androidcentral.com/sa...one-issue.html
- and so on...

I need to check if the custom rom or even the stock one have the same problem. I hope a software update will fix it soon... *finger crossed* (there is actually not a lot of hope since the last update didn't fix anything)

This has been an ongoing problem through several of the Galaxy phones now. I've gone on numerous expeditions trying to fix it. Verizon will even offer to replace the phone but it doesn't help. For anyone not familiar with the problem, try calling someone while HD voice is enabled. I'm on Verizon. They call it VoLTE but I believe other carriers have similar issues with the Galaxy phones. While on the call, if I turn on speakerphone the person I am talking to will not be able to hear me or I will be extremely muffled like I am under water. I know it is a software bug because the speakerphone works perfectly if you disable HD voice and use the 1X cellular connection for the call. Only 4G calls have the issue. My wife and I both have S9 phones and Verizon service. You would think for what we paid for these phones and how much we pay each month that someone could get a speakerphone to work properly.
