Hey guys, first time poster but what does that matter let's get to the point of the thread:
So, I noticed that on the iPhone 4 the speaker and mic on the bottom are switched from the placement of the other iPhones; I found this out while trying to use Ocarina, which of course didn't work because I was blowing at the speaker like a crazy person.
How do you feel about the switch? Had you even noticed it? I personally am a little annoyed by it, I was very used to holding my phone in certain ways as to get better sound out of the speaker so now I end up just covering it up by accident. Either way, I'll have to get used to it for now but let me know your thoughts.
The bottom mic placement hasn't made a noticable difference to me, but I wonder if it has anything to do with the dual mics now on the phone. The iP4 now has a cancellation mic like the Nexus one and it's next to the ear plug.
