posted by Daniel P. / Oct 02, 2012, 2:04 AM
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.
● 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

Great test. How about testing the handset speaker (the one that works during calls)? I have heard from friends who say the iP5 handset speaker is not as loud as the iP4S handset speaker.

Phone Arena did not feel a need to test the loudest Galaxy (there are 10 trillion of them), Optimus or Lumias... why does Apple need so much attention? samystic

because there have been complaints about the weak speaker volume on iphones especially since iphone4 redesign.... I've Never complained about my speaker volume on Droid OG, Thunderbolt, Bionic, RazR, Nexus, or SGSIII but have had issues hearing voice navigation on iphone 4 and 4S so i'm glad to hear the 5 is louder.

gsmarena's loudspeaker test found the iphone 5 to be below average compared to it's nearest competitionhttp://www.gsmarena.com/apple_
weirdly the iphone 4s did better than the iphone 5

Beat me to this by 5 minutes - yes, this is weird. I think it is possible that Apple may not only be using different screen suppliers for the iPhone 5, but possibly different speaker suppliers. I have compared a 4 iPhone 5 phones to my 4S, using the same YouTube clip, max volume: 3 were definitely softer, but one was noticeably louder...go figure.

Let me guess, they have "The most advanced sound in the world."? Who cares about this? Who walks around playing music on their phones on loud like a boombox? That was cool on the old Motorola flip phones 6 years ago.
