Latest iPhone 5 has the loudest iPhone speaker, like, ever

Latest iPhone 5 has the loudest iPhone speaker, like, ever
Apple touted the new speaker set it has put in the iPhone 5, and said it went from three to five magnet transducers inside, despite a smaller foot print than the previous one.

We now have an objective test to confirm that the speakers in the iPhone 5 are stronger than in all of the previous iPhone models, measured with a decibel meter.

The final results are as follows, and interestingly enough, the new iPhone 4 redesign at the time rolled back the speaker strength significantly compared to the 3GS:

                                                                    ● iPhone 2G: 91.0 dBA
                                                                    ● iPhone 3G: 95.0 dBA
● iPhone 3GS: 97.6 dBA
● iPhone 4: 92.8 dBA
● iPhone 4S: 97.9 dBA
● iPhone 5: 100.3 dBA
