Is anyone else disappointed with the speaker placement? I can't play games in a landscape mode because my hands cover the speakers while my HTC phone works fine as speakers are on the back.
Same with headphone jack, Contre game requires headphones but holding phone is awkward when it's plugged in (although that's a flaw of all the current phones)

As to the jack placement, best you an do is get a 90 deg coupling on a wired headset for better hand comfort (not perfect, but better than an inch of wire poking into your hand, or better yet use a Bluetooth headset/speaker.

I wouldn't call it a design flaw. I like the speaker placed on the bottom verses the back. When the speaker is on the back you have to turn the device over with the screen away from you to get the best sound. The way the 920 is designed I can look at the screen and still get the best sound.

As mentioned, it depends what you do. No matter where it is, it can be seen as design flaw. I personally don't play games, so I don't share your problem. However my phone is always screen up when not in my pockets and on softer surfaces I've had similar placement lead to basically a silenced phone when the speakers are put on the back of the phone.
Also my old phone that had a speaker on the back meant that if I wanted to listen to music or phonecall or whatever through speakers, I would have to put the phone screen down and I don't like doing that, cos table/etc could have particles that could scratch my screen accidently! :D

i dont understand why hiiiiiiiii still has a lumia 920. i went back and looked at his thread remarks or the ones he started and most of them have some kind of complaint or dis-satisfactory about his Nokia lumia 920. why have a device you are clearly not happy with? i don't know. i know i wouldn't.

You need to be creative in the way you hold your phone. I personally take yoga for fingers. That way I can manipulate my fingers in such a manner that my ears are able to receive sound vibrations coming from the speakers and I am more than satisfied with my efforts in finding a solution to a somewhat annoying but not a debilitating sound problem while trying to play a game or games on my Nokia Lumia 920

I also just experienced it today. I started playing a game in landscape mode and my hands repeatedly covered the speaker, But, I never even thought of it as an issue or something. It is just something to be aware of and thats it. Now I place my fingers a bit to the left/right and its fine.

fine with me, especially i use more for portrait surfing and with speaker music. Speaker facing me actually let the music come to me instead of echo from other direction. See, if it is on other side I would say is a flaw? Well just depends your preference.

It can't be a design flaw... If it was, the iPhone wouldn't have the speakers there too. And everyone knows that the iPhone is "perfect".
