Does phone speaker quality matter to you?
Over the years we've seen smartphones evolve greatly, now packing bigger displays with thinner bezels than ever, a whole lot of raw power and incredible cameras. In addition, we're now seeing exciting new smartphone form factors, be it folding phones like the Galaxy Z Fold 2 or dual-screen ones like the LG Wing.

But when you're buying a phone, be it a budget one, a mid-ranger or a flagship, you often have to deal with one area where smartphones don't seem to improve much over time – sound quality.

Other than more extravagant smartphones like the Asus ROG Phone 5, with its impressive dual front-firing speakers, many phones usually pack just a single speaker, or at best, employ the earpiece as a second one. The resulting sound even in that case is often tinny and uneven, though at least with a stereo effect.

If phone makers don't put that much effort into improving the sound quality of their devices, does that mean users are happy with what they have? And it's sufficient enough for gaming or watching movies? Or are fans of good audio quality just silent? Well, now is the time to speak up!

Vote below and let us know in the comments if smartphone speaker quality matters to you, if sound quality is a factor you always consider when buying, or if you're happy with the sound quality of your current phone.
