Why?? Just, why?


Is anyone using this for anything other than a volume boost on some content?

I have it turned on, but I rarely watch content for prolonged periods on my phone and I can't say I've noticed much difference.

Guessing it is for when you connect via bluetooth to a home theater for music or videos. Although a wired plug will probably provide better audio quality that those types of volumes. I thought Atmos was though sound that was above you, so unless it is connected to a home theater where the  speakers direct sound upwards to bounce off the ceiling, I can't see how it works.

On the Huawei P20 it has made dialogue a lot easier to distinguish from the background music.

Except that some soundbars do have additional upward-pointing speakers to give the height dimension. I haven't seen a mobile phone with anything like that but maybe there are mobile phones with additional speakers.
