Re: Speaker test: HTC One vs Samsung Galaxy S4 vs LG Optimus G Pro
Great find. The video test is the real story here. It's not that all other speakers are bad, though I think the One sounds richer and a little cleaner, it's that they face the wrong direction. All 3 speakers sounded good. Every phone (including every HTC phone I've ever had) forgot this. I've always thought the iPhone speakers were top-notch. When you build these phones to be multimedia warehouses why wouldn't you eliminate the rear-facing speaker? Apple got halfway there, literally, by putting it on the bottom of the phone. For music it isn't as much of a problem, but for video and gaming I think the One speakers make the whole experience better. A couple of years from now someone will be pimping the 5.1 surround sound and THX certification of their front-facing speakers. Which will be awesome.
