Has anyone else noticed the speaker on the EVO is freakin' brilliant? When I am listening to podcasts or playing games it's amazing. I mean, it's no 5.1, but it's like it's got a tiny subwoofer in there or something!

In fact, when I listen to podcasts before bed I have both my Nexus One and EVO docked there, but I have switched over to the EVO exclusively for podcasts. Has anyone else noticed this or am I just hallucinating?

Totally agree. That was one of my biggest concerns when I bought it.

The Nexus speaker just flat out sucks! It sounds great, but it's wayyyy to quiet.

My Droid has the loudest speaker of any phone I've ever had and it's wonderful, and I have to say the Evo is easily on par with it. The Evo speaker may be a tiny bit quieter, but it also sounds better at full volume, so it balances out.

I was quite surprised at how good it was. Was setting myself up for a let down after the TP2's excellent dual speakers.

Looks like there is only one as well

I'm not impressed. When driving, even with navigation at max volume, it is still too quiet, IMHO. Of course, it doesn't help that I'm coming from a Nokia with stereo speakers.

I guess I'm the minority. Coming from the iPhone, the EVO's speaker sounds blown out. It's loud, but it sounds pretty terrible. Maybe mine is defective?

It's not audiophile grade by a long shot. I believe everyone's praise is coming from a speakerphone perspective. I will still use my shure headphones for music. But when it comes to built in speakers. The Evo is second only to the TP2 IMO.

But yours indeed could be blown out. It wouldn't hurt to compare it to another evo if you have access to another one.
