    Hi,

    I recently got my new iPhone 4S (white) and generally I am very happy with it. When playing around with alarm sound and ringtones today, I realized that – though the speakers are a lot louder now when compared to my previous iPhone 3G – when playing music or ringtone the speakers of the iPhone 4S sound a lot "screamier"/distorted/blurrier.

    Can others confirm this on their iPhone 4S'? Or is it just my model, does it maybe have a faulty speaker?

    Not that I am one of the guys running around with my phone and playing music through crappy phone speakers – I was just wondering if they really had a better (though more quite) speaker in the older model.

    I personally felt that the 4S speaker blew all previous iPhones out of the water and was quite shocked by this.

    I definitely think the speaker on the 4S is the best to date, it produces a much fuller sound outputting what seems to be a larger spectrum of frequencies than the older speakers.

    Very interesting – thinks for your opinion!

    For the sounds I tried, all sound a lot more "metallic" and somewhat "cut-off at some frequencies" to me, compared to the iPhone 3G.
