While some of us might be more concerned about features such as battery life, display resolution, how many cores our smartphone’s processor has, how much RAM, and etc., there are some who prioritize other features such as how loud its speakers are. We have seen bad designs in the past where the speakers are placed on the back of the phone and are muffled when placed in the pocket.
We have also seen instances where speakers aren’t loud enough which tends to lead to missed calls and poor video or music listening experiences. Well the good news is that if you were thinking of picking up the new iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, the folks at iClarified have put together a new test that basically compares the speaker volumes of all the iPhones that Apple has released to date.
Interestingly based on their test, the volume levels on all the iPhones differ and not necessarily in a progressive manner. For example the iPhone 3GS had a volume level of 103.6 dBA, while the iPhone 4 which was the successor only had a volume level of 92.9 dbA. The iPhone 5’s level was at 104 dBa but its successors the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c were a tad lower.
The good news for would-be iPhone 6 and 6 Plus owners is that these phones have the loudest levels amongst Apple’s iPhones to date at 105.4 dBA and 105 dBA respectively. If you’d like to see iClarified’s test in action, you can do so by taking a look at the video above.
