speakers

When playing sounds or music through my iphone 5, it sounds like only the right speaker on the bottom is working or it is so much louder that I can't hear anything from the left one. Does anyone elses do this?

Wrong. Ipad 2 had stereo speakers with one opening in the case. It's been talked about before.

Really? Anyway it's moot. The speakers are so close it makes no difference to the sound.

Well as far as stereo separation you are right, there won't be any, but as far as making difference to the sound, yes it will sound better than a single mono speaker or two mono speakers.

No biggie..A few weeks after I bought my first iPhone, a 4S, I was in the car, pulled it out, and the display appeared to have dimmed and lost color accuracy. I started to panic since it was only a few weeks old, and then I realized the problem was that I had my polarized sunglasses on. sheesh.
