    Anyone else notice this with 7 plus? Had a iphone 6 and never noticed this but with the 7 plus i can feel vibrations from the screen and back with music and even phone calls.

    Yep I believe this is caused by the new speaker facing up from the earpiece. I noted I could reduce the vibration by applying gentle pressure and covering the earpiece. It's just the way it's designed I'm afraid.

    Sound is made with vibrations. It wouldn't be possible to have a speaker facing forward without vibrations in that direction.

    Yes it's a result of a questionable design. As such I'd expect iPhone 7 owners will just have to live with it. Perhaps Apple will avoid that mistake on the upcoming model.

    This is a wonderful excuse that'll make Apple happy.

    The interesting fact is my Nexus 6P has two front facing speakers, one top and one bottom. They sound so good that many reviewers have said they're just fantastic.

    They are free of the problem iPhone 7 displays.
