    Sounds much louder and clearer on my new S8 than my S7 Edge

    I'm coming from the Alcatel idol 4s which may be the best speakers on the market and I'm pleasantly surprised with the s8. It's not stereo or as bassy but it's not bad by any stretch.

    Bump.

    Been playing with the Poweramp eq settings and that really seems to help. Honestly I'm pretty happy with this speaker. And that's coming from someone whose last 4 phones had stereo speakers.

    I know some haven't been overly impressed with the single down firing speaker with also issues with the potential of covering it with a finger when in Landscape Mode, but for me I've had no issues and to try ear is better than my previous phone which was a s7 edge.

    My S8 is nice and loud, almost as loud as my Iphone 7. No complaints. I usually play music through my Bose Sound Touch 10 or my Viotek headphones. Haven't pulled the AKG headphones out of the box.

    It's an improvement over the S7E. That having said, it's still not great. As far as I understand, part of the issue is maintaining the IP68 standard. The S7E utilized some design of wire mesh that had such small spacing, the capillary action of water would prevent it from passing through, but the trade off was a muffled, underperforming speaker.

    Yeah it's pretty loud but YouTube requires 80% or more. That depends on the uploader also though.
    Notifications and calls are very loud on max.

    Sounds bad imo volume wise it's great but don't expect good sound quality out of it, that's why i use a bluetooth speaker or headphones instead and ofc the receiver for phone calls. I personally think my note 4 had better quality out of it's rear mounted speaker.

    Yeah only had s8 for just over a week played music over the loud speaker. It's clearer & actually feels like the speaker is giving out more than just tinny noise.
    Played The Black Keys, DNB, Reggae, Euphoric Trance, handles them all very well but as always comes down to the quality of the music files & how they are created. Poor quality gives of reverb & hiss. What's missing is that tweater from earpiece but don't think samsung will incorporate it cause the earspeaker is smaller so not sure how this effects it people reporting that modding your S8 with a root & changing the mixer path but whats the point cause your then altering the phone & invalidating your warranty. 😎

    That's what I've heard/read too. But it's still not clear to me why the iPhone 7 manages to have such loud speakers while achieving an IP68 rating. My wife's iPhone speaker knocks the socks off of mine. I understand that they implemented stereo by also using the earpiece speaker for audio. Seems like something Samsung could have implemented as well...

    It's the same exact quality as the S7. Honestly sounds pretty terrible for a flagship, but then again you can't blame them because it's water resistant. Now the regular S6 had a great speaker because it wasn't waterproof.

    I agree, iPhones​ have EXCELLENT sounding speakers! Samsung should've upgraded their speaker technology.

    Why can't u blame them? Apple and LG managed to have better sounding speakers and so have HTC and all of them are water resistant too

    I thought My Note 3 had Sammy's best external speaker.
    Had all the Notes and my personal favorite was the 3. Had to move on because of newer features but will always have a soft spot for the Note 3.

    I use mine as a wifi toy in the bathroom. Use it to listen to podcasts while I shower.
