    Hello everyone

    I was wondering if the speaker quality was worse on the 6s plus then it is on the iPhone 6? I've been hearing the that the S cycle iPhones usually have speaker problems. Thank you

    I came from a white 6 plus, and i'm going to say the 6s plus is actually a bit louder, I jam at my desk with thes peaker, and it's plenty loud for me ay least :)

    Maybe, but my screen says the following. Maybe it's a forum bug.

    I'll go by the Apple Store and listen to the speakers of the iPhone 6s Plus.

    Now, I don't have my 6 Plus anymore, but going from a pretty good musical memory, I think my 6s Plus sounds "peakier," which is to say that there's not as much bass in the speaker sound and pretty accentuated highs compared to my 6 Plus. Does that help?

    If quieter is worse, then I would say it's worse. The quality sounds fine. But at max volume it's noticeably quieter. Doesn't bother me though I never used to have it at max volume so all this changed is my defiant is set higher to compensate.

    I feel the opposite, i feel mines on par, if not exactly the same! and I literally listen to music 5.5 hours of a work day at my desk on the phone itself. Strange!

    Wow. Maybe there is a variance (In both or either device)? I had my 6 plus with my 6s plus for two days before I got rid of it. It's definitely louder.

    My 6s Plus is definitely as loud as my 6 Plus was. It just sounds a bit more hollow with the peaky highs and no bass to speak of (considering the speaker size).

    I went from 6+ to 6S+ and haven't really noticed any difference in the speaker.

    I think it's louder, but I just use my Bose soundlink mini at my desk

    My 6S Plus doesn't sound quite as good as my 6 did.

    I put it down to two things.
    1, I'm used to how the 6 sounded so will, in time, get used to this one.

    2, speakers improve with usage. So may or may not match how the 6 sounds with age.

    You'll never get 'good' sound from tiny speakers anyway. The only time I've been impressed by small device sound is on my MacBook Pro, was truly surprised at the volume and quality. Again not fantastic, just superb from a small laptop.

    I don't think the speaker is as good as the one in the 6+. It's less warm, has more treble and less low mids. Shame really as it's the only thing that the 6+ excels in.
