Zopo zp100 Android Chinaphone with half busted jack
Kns6400 with 8400 pads
This rig has been retired recently in favor of an S3 and Uha6II
Clip+ => Fiio E5 => FXT90L2s
This set usually stays in my backpack for meetings and rehearsals for which I'm not immediately required. Not bad for everything coming in under $120
I had a Optimus Black for a while and thought the headphone out wasn't that great. Does the E6 make a big difference to it, or are you happy with the headphone out.
The Optimus had a poor camera but other than that I liked it, great screen for sunlight and nice and slim.
Sorry about slow replay but just noticed noticed your question :)
The headphone out could be better for sure but luckily E6 does improve the sound. Of course it's not the worst headphone out I've been listening by far. Camera could be better but it's manageable, works good enough outside with plenty of sunlight but inside and/with poor lightning conditions not so great. Must agree what you said about screen and appearances, 10/10 on those.
But it's getting old and slowish lately. I've been considering an update to dual or even quad core models. Quads cost a lot tho so maybe some budget dual like Sony Xperia L.
I was estimating high.
KSC75 - $10
Parts Express Mini Headphone for headband - $8
Sansa Clip+ - $20
MicroSD Card - $5
About $43 or so.
s3....with a 2 year contract?
I'm always a year behind on phones. I only got the S3 in hopes of one day acquiring a V-MODA Vamp Verza and a Metallo case (definitely NOT budget-fi). There's also a Go-Dap specially designed for Android phones coming out soon so I may look into that. Funny thing is after I got the S3, a friend of mine gave me his old iPhone 4. Maybe I can snipe an original Vamp for cheap. The phone I actually use "as a phone" is the Galaxy Note 1.
The usual rig I carry around when out and about. Clip Zip > Fiio e11 > Koss TBSE with m50 pads
Here's my rig when I travel light. Clip Zip > Logitech UE500
And my around the house portable rig. Clip Zip > Fiio e11 > Philips Fidelio L1
