Is there something wrong with my iPhone?

I have an iPhone 4, and when I cover up what looks like the right speaker, the sound is muffled; no sound comes out of the other one. It does the same thing on my sisters iPhone, so is the other "speaker" just a mic? Or is my phone broken?

It is a mic for when you talk on the phone. I have an iPhone 4S and mine is the same way. Hope this helped. :-)

The microphone is on the left, the speaker is on the right. Your phone's not broken, it's the same as every other iPhone 4.

No, only one is a speaker, how do you think while talking on the phone the other person hears you. The right is a speaker and the left is a mic for phone calls and/or Siri

Yeah it's just a mic, no sound comes out (I had the same idea as you when I first got my iPhone :P)
