I have Galaxy S I9000 + Voodoo Control Plus, Cowon J3, Sansa Fuze + Rockbox and Ipod nano 4th gen.
I compared all of them with different earphones (Earsonics SM3, Brainwavz M2, Sunrise X-cape impressive ed.), different file formats (FLAC and 320 kbps mp3) and different music types (rock, metal, classical and pop). I can't make a detailed review or comparison result for now. But i can say that my best choise is Galaxy S + Voodoo + Rockbox player + Earsonics SM3 + FLAC format. This combination has an excellent sound quality for me. Espacially for rock and metal music which are my favorite music types. It sounds really detailed, clear, balanced, enough bass and very powerful (exactly no need an amp). I used many music player applications for Android such as Poweramp (I think it sucks), Winamp, SGS stock player etc. But i think the best one is Rockbox player exactly. It is unstable port, is not user-friend so much but nevertheless, it sound excellent and really satisfies.
I use my SM3v2s generally, but i prefer M2 sometimes to get more bass.
And my rankings for the others :
2. Cowon J3 : Plays really very clear and great but needs an amp and a detailed eq setting. The max volume is not so high. The best side of it is the eq really works great.
3. Sansa Fuze + Rockbox : Volume is enough no need for an amp but doesn't sound so detailed as the Galaxy S or J3.
4. Ipod nano : Just forget it after the others.
I will get sflo2 soon. Maybe it will be better than Galaxy S for me, i don't know for now. Just i will see when i get it. But Galaxy S is my best PMP now.

But honesty, how does it compare to what other people use ? (those sansa+ rockbox/ipod touch LOD/Cowan j3?)
and does it make it much difference if I plug an external amp on it?
