Default 8700 Speaker

Please Login to Remove!

I'm just wondering if anyone has had any problems with the speaker on the 8700?

I haven't had any problems that have prompted me to ask. I have just noticed that it is so loud, and some ringtones are so loud as well, that it gets distortion. What I was wondering, is if it is actually amplified enough that it would be possible for a ringtone (or I suppose loud noise when on speaker phone) to blow the speaker?

I would assume not, but at times the level of distortion is such that I can't help but worry about it. Has anyone had this problem?

It's amazing how loud it is... I was also thinking that it can self distract because it is soo freakin loud. But hey.. that's why we get insurance. I love my 8700g tho :D
