The speaker is 100% fine for everyday use of a phone. For phone calls on speaker phone it works well. Its not loud, but it does not need to be.
If you expect to use your 'phone' as a portable boom box then you are not really in touch with reality.
Also worth noting EU law does dictate the volume output of audio equipment that is used close to the ear.
Wow, calm down, I'm sorry if I insulted your precious phone! My son has a Sony Erricson and we can all hear it outside quite comfortably whereas my iphone is almost silent in comparison. I just wanted an idea of how loud the DHD was. I do not need a reality check, you need to relax.
