    I have not had any problems with my Nexus 5 speaker since I've received it. But, there is one thing I think they could do better. Instead of releasing a revision with bigger holes, which they should have done in the first place, they should have put a front facing speaker on the Nexus 5. The one thing I noticed about the phone when I unboxed it was the enlarged bottom bezel. It almost makes the phone look upside, down. Instead of having the notification light there, they should have put it on the top or even integrated it with the speaker grill, and then moved the speaker from the bottom to the front. There is plenty of room and it would make the bezel look more like it has a purpose for being that big. It would also solve various problem.

    1) Low volume, it wouldn't be significant but it would help. Also there is opportunity for a larger grill.
    2) Muffling the speaker when playing games. When the phone is in landscape my index finger tends to cover the grill which pretty much depletes all sound from the N5.
    3) Fill the unused portion of the bottom bezel. The only design flaw I see. (And giving white N5 users plastics bumpers instead of the smooth ones)

    And they'd be able to use that as another selling point. Because their camera was amazing at launch, right? >__>

    Dude thats not a revision they would ever consider doing because thats just a new phone not a revesion.. plus you havent seen the phones internals just cause you see space doesnt mean there is space inside.

    I never meant it to be a revision. Its just an idea "dude". What they could have done. Trying to start conversations not arguments. And it wouldn't be a new phone, either, if nothing else changed.

    Can a mod delete this thread please. People don't seem to understand where I am coming from and it's only going to cause confusion.

    What did you hope to gain from the original thread post then?

    Not things that have been spoken of and repeated in countless other threads.

    OP is simply wishing the phone came with a front facing speaker. He's not looking for modifications/hardware revisions or an argument.

    Were all entitled to an opinion on these forums. Lets use it to attack the issues, not each other. :)

    I think people just misread your first post.

    It would be pretty awesome if this had a front facing speaker like the HTC one :D
