Confusion on the speakers of iphone 7 plus

I’ve bought a used iphone 7 plus now I know that it has a stereo speaker system. But I’m a bit concerned about it’s sound output, the bottom firing speaker works perfectly fine I’m just a bit curious to know that does both of the speakers sound the same or the speaker attached to the earpiece is a bit lower in volume.
Please help me with it!!!!!!

I recall

This area became a bit of a minor bashing for Apple over that. My answer is just from memory. That is, it's not like a stereo set of speakers. They do differ. You can google more about it but this is my fast answer from memory.

If you need a stereo player, add some external speakers or headphones.

No I couldn’t found any discussion ragarding this problem. So basically what u are saying is
That the upper speaker is not as good sounding as the bottom one.

Not to sound dismissive

But that's close to what I wrote. As in, the speaker performance is not matched. As to not finding priors, I decided not to google this up again as nothing could fix it except earphones or external speakers.

But hey, you want priors so here you go

Sorry no, I find no reason to refine that search as this is a dead end area. It's been beat up before and as folk rediscover it, they get to go over it again. Your phone is fine. It just doesn't do what you expected.

Read where they clarify where the speakers are and note a BALANCE setting. But even with that I find most don't agree this is a fix.
