    I am a 4S user ; I am wondering how is the sound quality from iPhone 5 speaker.

    With the Lightning connector the iPhone 5 should have more space to fit a larger speaker. Can any iPhone 5 owner clarify this?

    I have tested the speaker is the store and it sounds amazing. Though it may also depend on the environment the device is in and how "loud" it really may be.

    I had an iphone 4 before and have noticed that the iphone 5 speaker is much much better. Not only is it louder but it is also clear. I can not say how much better it is than the 4s but I recently saw a video where they compared the videos and the 5 was the loudest speaker of them all.

    I think the iphone 5 speaker is pretty cool and louder than the iphone 4. I could never hear the music on my 4 in showers even on the loudest settings. Now I can with the 5.

    Thanks for sharing your experience with iPhone 5.

    I just read this link http://m.tuaw.com/2012/10/01/video-i...e-speaker-yet/

    It was tested with sound measuring tool; and iPhone 5 reads about 100db which is 18% louder than iPhone 4.

    I am amazed & impressed. Slimmer & Louder 😊

    Agree - very good audio quality from the iP5 speaker... and nice and loud as everyone says. iPhone 4/4S was already decent and loud, made the Galaxy Nexus I used to have sound like *** (bad quality and speaker volume not loud enough). The iPhone 5 just steps it up that much more. It's these little things that make me love Apple devices (always have since the early 90s). It's the small details and refinement that eludes most all Android devices...

    Mine has really bad quality. Took it back to apple only for rude staff at the Apple store in Sydney to say that the phone sounds ok barely listening to it - when it clearly does not. Apple products really have taken a quality slump. Steve Jobs must be spinning in his grave.
