    Why did they put the speakers at the bottom. It's so easily muffled I had the 10.5 but it was just a bit to big for what I do but other then that the 8.4 is a nice little device with a beautiful screen

    Yeah I don't get why they don't all use front facing speakers by now it's kind of a no brainer. One day someone will make the perfect tablet

    They are telling you to use it landscape since it does have "stereo" speakers

    Yeah that's the problem when using it in landscape it muffles the "stereo" speakers when holding it. Do you have a tab s 8.4?

    How are the muffled if your using it in Landscape ... Pretty much the only differences between the 10.5 and 8.4 is the Buttons would be on the side instead of the bottom

    Well the difference between the 10.5 and the 8.4 is the fact that the 8.4 has the speakers on the bottom of the device and the 10.5 has them way at the top. Not you could just flip the 8.4 the other way but then the IR would be facing down and would not work. I'm guessing you don't have an 8.4 or you would feel my pain lol

    It is the same I have also seen YouTube reviews of it..... The speakers are on top on the sides in landscape where the buttons for on and off and volume rocker is along with SD card slot and ir blaster is. The stereo speakers are on top 1 on the left and right

    Would definitely suggest simply spinning it the other way so that the speakers are on the top. Is it really necessary to require access tl the IR device?

    Yes, I can see the problem for those who are using the IR. Some available options:

    1. Use a cable or Bluetooth earphone/headset.
    2. Use a cable or Bluetooth speaker.
    3. Use a portable smartphone or tablet stand. With this you can also plug in your favorite headset or speakers which will give you a much better audio quality.

    Example of a stand:

    Speakers on top and bottom. When I hold in landscape mode and cut my hands around the speakers I get great sound for YouTube videos, etc.
