Ingenious Sony Xperia Z1 mod allows you to turn the earpiece into a secondary speaker for a stereo effect

In terms of performance gains, the Xperia Z2 was an unimpressive update. Sure, it's got a newer Snapdragon chip and a tad more RAM, but it's not like those left the Xperia Z1 in the dust. Indeed, one of the most serious sources of envy for Xperia Z1 users isn't the new silicon found in the new flagship, but rather things like the two front-facing stereo speakers on the Z2...

Z2 was a big upgrade IMO
Front facing speakers
Improved notification led
No more shadder resistant screen protector
Improved waterproof flaps
Higher clocked processor and more RAM
C'mon PA, the Z2 was an impressive upgrade

I am using this mod since a week now.. This really works.. There is a clear difference.. But I worry that, this may damage my earpiece..

How this idea came about was exactly due to that bug.
This signals the next Sony flagship having this as an actual feature.

I would definitely be worried about the earpiece speaker blowing, normally they're not made to handle that kind of volume increase.

A statement like that makes it seem the battery life increase was a small thing, but in reality it was a huge and needed update.

Also "a tad more RAM". 3gb ram is 50% more compared to the 2gb
