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 OnePlus 6'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!

I'm very interested in this as I'm considering replacing my Pixel 2 XL and the speakers on the Pixel kind of suck.

If you feel the Pixel 2 speakers are bad you will not like the OP6 for sure, they are mono and they are horrible at loud volumes.. I am surprised you dont like the Pixel 2 speakers because they have the best ones out of the premium manufacturers

To me, the OnePlus 3 to 5T have always had amazing speakers for what they are. If you compare it to similar setups it blows everything out of the water. It's punchy and clear until you hit around 90% volume. Let's hope the OP6 stays the same.

Reviews about op6 speakers have not been good. Some reviewers told that the only weakness op6 has is its speakers. Maybe because of using some thin protective layer to prevent water from going inside.

Well yeah, when comparing to my old 3T, it's somewhat worse. Like you said, propably because of those protective layers for water.

Do you guys also have cracking on loud volume? To be honest I'm very disappointed with this speaker, however I'm not sure if I have faulty device or it just is how it is

Than you never have a phone with good speaker. OP3 was crap, compare to other phones like Mate 9 oder 10.

Um, no. My OP5 has punchy and sustained bass without distortion (until you turn the volume up to max, the sound profile changes at 90% volume to deliver louder tones, thus also distorting slightly), but at 80% it still manages to be much louder than any other phone with a similar speaker arrangement. The speaker has good bass and perfect mids.

It's a similar experience to one of those LG phones with the "1W speaker driver". I like the speaker for what it is.

i think it is low. My oneplus 5 was recently stolen and that is why i ended up buying the 6. First think i noticed when playing the audio was how low the volume was. My roommates have the 5 and 5T and i played the a video in fb app in 5,5T and 6 and 5 and 5T was louder than the 6. FYI, 5 and 5T runs on the xxx no limits ROM.

So i am not sure if that is affecting the audio in anyway
