    I noticed there is a speaker next to the 8MP camera on the back, however, when I play media no sound comes out. Is this a speaker or what is going on? Anyone else experiencing similar issues?

    Thanks,
    Josh

    Not a speaker. Just a Bionic hyper cooling duct for antimatter discharge.

    (the sticker on that area of a brand new phone states:

    For best audio quality, do not cover.

    IOW, it's a mic.) :rolleyes:

    I'm actually pretty sure that sticker is referring to the small hole. I don't really know what that grill by the camera is because it does in fact look like a speaker.

    It is a speaker. Try rebooting your phone. I had an issue with no sound from music and that fixed it

    If this is the case, then covering it up should make music as quiet as when you cover up the speaker at the bottom of the phone. Not the case for me. :thinking:

    It's ok. I had to think a bit of a good way to test that. At least we know we have no phone issues. The x had one speaker too.

    I only get sound from the speaker hole at the bottom of the back of the phone.
