I guess I should buy either an iPhone 5 or Samsung Galaxy S3 though? How would the wolfson of the s4 compare with the S3 or even the iphone 5 for that mattter?
Thanks for your excellent reply mate :)
I've not heard the iPhone 5, but I would imagine for SQ it's a safer bet than the Wolfson (Octa) S4. The S3 is pretty decent, even more so if you are prepared to Root and use some of the kernels with audio tweaks.
I ended up with the Octa one as I sold the other one in order to try out the Octa! I haven't bothered getting rid of it yet since it is tiding me over until the Note 3 arrives. I didn't realise when I got the Octa how bad the WiFi performance would be, or how neglected it would be on the firmware support front (I think I've had only two, and the first introduced a bug where the phone crashed every time the camera opened), or how badly implemented the SoC was from the point of view of battery life (which Samsung touted as a major selling point, and given how much better their 2012 Exynos was for battery than it's competitors I expected better).
