Buying a new smartphone

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I use my Lg optimus 2x as my music source, when im out of the house. I stream my music from my Squeezebox server via 3G, and In the same time, the flac files gets transcoded into 320 kbs mp3 files. I recently bought a IPad 3. And the Sound quality from the iPad is In a different league, without transcoding though, since i online use it on wifi
I'm thinking about buying a new phone. I really like the design of the yellow Nokia Lumigom 920, but it's using the Qualcomm s4 chip like the US version of the Galaxy s3. So should i expect the sound quality to be like the US S3? I'm also considering the the international galaxy s3. Sine it's i allready purchased a lot of apps. But Nokia phones, has allways had great reception and great batteri time.
But this time,my priorities also includes Sound quality.

Ok just tried to compare my iPad and my o2x again. When i hooked up my superlux hd 681 to my Lg the was even worse than i rembered it, and this time it was lagging to. I rebooted the phone like i do when some games get laggy. And guess what, the lag dissapeared and the sound was fine to, a lot closer to the ipad's quality. But anyway i went to a store, and tried out the Lumia 900 and tha Galaxy s3. I guess is doesn't help much, since i only had the default applied sound files. Judging by that, the Galaxy is the better choise.

If you will plane to use an esternal dac you go for s3, I use an odac with s3 and the quality is amazing.
The s3 quality out of the headphone output is no bad, but nothing of exceptional.
