iPhone 7 Only Right Speaker Working

Problem: I just bought the iPhone 7 but i was wondering if there is a speaker on the left side or not? I have noticed that only the right side works.

Solution:  The iPhone 7 has two speakers however they are not positioned on the left and right bottom part of the phone. The right side houses one of the speakers. This why you can hear the sound coming out of it. The left side however does not house a speaker. This where the barometric vent is located. What this component does is it equalizes the internal and atmospheric pressure to get a more accurate altimeter reading,

Now, the location of the second speaker is at the top part. The phone uses the earpiece speaker as a second loudspeaker. This is a different earpiece speaker from the previous iPhone models and is an upgraded one since it will complete the stereo sound effect of the phone.

We hope that we have clarified this matter.
