Speaker positioning is problematic in landscape mode

The position of the speaker in the bottom-left corner of the Jolla device (held in portrait mode) is a bit problematic, because when you hold the phone in landscape mode (e.g. for playing games), you'll likely cover the speaker entirely with your right hand. This is a suggestion for future devices/hardware revisions to move the speaker to the other air vent (bottom right corner) instead, or at least take this use case into account during the design.

Any top/bottom position is problematic when holding the phone in landscape. A solution like the HTC One would be awesome (speakers on the front).

I think the movement I suggested would improve things a lot. Currently when I hold the phone in landscape mode I cover the bottom "air vent" entirely and the top one not at all, hence the suggestion. Either way, other positioning might work as well, but the important thing is that the use case is taken into consideration.

Hm, fair point. It just... feels wrong. :P But it'll do in the meantime.

I converted the comment in an answer, in case you'd want to accept it as a solution.

If you think that would solve the problem, the solution is easy: turn your phone 180degrees (into the other landscape position). Voilá! Solved! ;)
