    Default Stereo sound?

    Interested to "see" umm I mean "hear" this stereo sound now in the iPhone 7. But turning on the ear piece this could give really bad quality or really awesome quality for gaming, video, etc. Let's wait I guess for the reviews.

    I believe the second speaker on top is separate from the earpiece used for phone calls.

    I'm looking forward to hearing it as well, but I think it'll be more of a plus than a minus.

    If it's anything like the baby iPad Pro it's a big win.

    If Apple has proven anything with sound it's that more speakers is better. My 12.9" iPad Pro can really kick out some sound. It's impressive.

    I'm a little concerned about it, Apple hasn't wowed me on speakers yet, hopefully this does.

    The iPhone has never really had a very "good" speaker when it comes to quality of sound and volume. Any improvement will be good, and the iPad has really impressed me over the last couple of years with their speaker enhancements on certain models. Maybe Apple learned something in that arena that they were able implement on a smaller scale.

    I hope this is good something I always wanted and if it is at least similar to the iPad Pro I'll be happy

    I'm really surprised why more phone makers are not putting stereo speakers on phones. With all the media that is being consumed nowadays, it's a no brainer. Now that Apple has finally put it in iPhone, I'm hoping more makers follow.

    Apple is actually the one playing catch up in this scenario. HTC, Sony, Motorola and Google have all been making devices with stereo speakers for a while now.

    I've been trying to find pictures of the top of the phone to see where the speaker is situated but can't find any pics anywhere. Have any of you fine folks found any yet please?

    It's early days yet but Google has nothing.

    There's no speaker grille on the top. The earpiece speaker is just amped up.

    With this, I personally don't expect much especially when HTC attempted this stereo set up as well while using a separate speaker aside from the ear one. Only time will tell.
