SQ Review = iPhone 4s > iPhone 5 > Various Android (One X, GSI III). DUPLICATE POST - Sorry!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

** Just noticed there is another thread on this topic, which I evidently didn't see the first time around.  This thread can be deleted or merged with http://www.head-fi.org/t/630015/engadgets-comparison-of-the-iphone-5-4s-galaxy-s3-and-the-one-x-for-audiophiles.  Sorry everyone **

 

I ran across an article on Engadget this morning that basically states the iPhone 4s is better than the iPhone 4, the iPhone 5, HTC One X (US & Global) and the GS III (US & Global) when it comes to SQ. (The source is at the bottom of this e-mail)

 

I'm curious what everyone thinks. I currently have a HTC EVO 3D as my phone, and an Apple iPod Touch as my media device, but I was looking to consolidate to one device (and I was leaning towards an android platform). However, no matter what ROM, kernel, or music app I used with my phone, the Apple iPod touch always sounded MUCH better (and if anything I am biased pro-Android).

 

I even did a blind sound test (yes I'm that geeky / desperate) with my family and friends on several songs using both my receiver and identical headphones. Every time they picked the iPod Touch.

 

I'm curious what everyone thinks of these tests (they seem valid, but somewhat limited). As always, I'm just trying to educate myself (while also trying to find the best Android phone/media player)

I'm not surprised with the tests with the iPhone 4S as i find the SQ on my 4S simply awesome. The SQ is just as good if not better than the SQ of my Samsung Galaxy S (voodoo) Cowon J3 and Sony A729 and X1060. It is the best mobile phone I have ever owned.
