Samsung S8300: Nice screen, poor audio?

I've been eyeing the Samsung S8300 as my phone of choice as it has an 8 megapixel camera and a gorgeous AMOLED screen. From the Samsung Tocco Ultra Touch Reviews on the net, all are unanimous in saying that it has indeed a gorgeous screen and perfect for watching HD videos. The problem is the audio quality.

There are those who say that the speakers are not so loud and a bit tinny while others say it's okay. I'd really love to get one of these though I don't know which carrier will get the Samsung S8300 in the states. I don't want to have to import one just for the video quality and even though it's 3G/HSDPA capable, the European versions won't be compatible here in the states and since it doesn't have a WiFi, spending $500 for a phone that doesn't have fast internet connection is a waste. I might just as well wait for the Sony Ericsson W995 which will hit US shores in July.
