We've heard that getting stereo speakers on the iPhone 7 is accompanied by the sound being louder than in the 6 or 6s. Is that also true of the ring tone when someone calls the phone? The lack of a good loud ringer has been a pet peeve of mine since my first iPhone 3g. I've searched around and cannot find a definitive answer to that question. I am still sitting on the fence as to whether I'll abandon my 6 in favor of the 7 but that might push me over the edge.

I was pretty sure you were going to say you had a 6 rather than a 6s. The ringer on the 6s is louder than the 6. The sucker scares me all the time. I'm sure the 7 will be even louder.

I hope you're right. The ringer volume of my iPhone 6 is woefully inadequate in any environment that is even the least bit noisy.

I'm somewhat dissapointed with the speakers, they're definitely not twice as loud...just a small bump up in sound performance...wasn't expecting a Bose sound, but at least more volume.

I'm definitely getting more volume. Love the speakers; they're good for their size.
Hey good to see your still here Naps.... yeah, maybe I'm just nitpicking..it really is a very nice iteration...and i like how its water resistant, although not sure how they keep the water out of the the speaker holes...but I'm not going to test that out...hopefully.

The iPhone 7's ringer is somewhat louder than that of the 6 but still might not be heard in noisy setting such as a factory or a construction site. A very loud phone would have been my old Motorola Q. When that phone would ring it could wake the dead it was so loud.
