The phone also has two speakers. This was not the case for previous models in the Edge 20 series, which was a major disadvantage. Its Edge 30 speakers are compatible with Dolby Atmos sound.

The quality of calls is excellent. When the speaker is turned on the phone does an excellent job at removing any the sound of nearby conversations.
