I just bought the u.s. S3(SPH-L710 I believe). Explain this feature, and if it would work on my version please.

I still think its the Nokia N8

 

Digital out to E7, or just via its own headphone output, especially playing FLAC files

with Folder Play,it never ceases to surprise me. Superb detail, loads of volume, real bass,

and prat, it can carry a tune beautifully.

 

plus HDMI output, and takes mini SD cards, and has a built in FM Transmitter

so you can play back in the car, which is a feature I use every day.

 

Yes the OS is not pretty, but the camera is the dogs'

how does the N8 compare to a Sony DAP like the X-Series? 

 

I am looking for a new phone and do not wish to carry around a dap and a phone at the same time.  I am in a low budget range so it could be either the SG S1 or N8 and maybe the Motorola Atrix.  As these phone can be goten on the cheap on eBay.

The N8 does have nice quality out of the headphone jack, definitely agree there. Its USB audio is more limited than the S3s, but still a feather in its cap in terms of adding the possibility of scability to the listening experience via USB DAC upgrades.

 

I would probably go the S1 over the N8 though, unless the camera is a particular draw card for you. If you're not wanting to carry around another device (DAP/headphone amp/whatever) then you'll get better sound from the S1 with Voodoo Sound than you will from the N8, in addition to a much better OS and much more usable device overall (besides the camera of course).
