I'm glad to have run across this post again. I, too, read the complaints about sound quality and speaker placement... I don't wanna say this is a high quality speaker on the bottom, but it's as good as what I had on the Galaxy Nexus. It's not gonna rock a party, but it's fine for the odd video or a speakerphone call.
placement isn't a big deal either... I think those who complained about it were really grasping for something to put on the cons list.
Having watched a few videos today, I can say it's a lot louder than what I had on the GNex and only slightly more tinny. Adjust your expectations. It's a tiny little speaker on the bottom of your phone!
