    What is going on with the speakers on this phone? Do you think it is software? Nothing is in the speakers? It seems that the top speaker sounds terrible and the phone switches between speakers depending upon position. Is that normal? It is an iPhone 7 plus 128 GB.

    Potentially something similar to what's discussed at http://forums.macrumors.com/threads/top-speaker-not-as-loud-as-bottom-speaker-on-iphone7.2004812/ and other similar linked threads?

    In this case....it is shifting how much each speaker is on. Like the bottom one turn so off all together when the phone is shifted. Is there a setting for that?

    No idea about the bad sound, but on the iPad pro's, when you turn the iPad from portrait to landscape, the speakers change how they project sound. So that may a new feature in the 7+.
