LG G2 with native 24/192 music playback - Page 2

post #16 of 48

 

That sounds about like my impression so far. It is not as exciting sounding as my GS3, but still very good. (Thought I still have not done head to head comparison.) It will be interesting to see what the Android devs do to tweak it. The bones are good, IMHO.

 
Another thing I noticed, there is some noise if the phone is plugged into the wall charger. Only wall charger though, don't hear it charging via computer (slow charging).
 
Speaking of charging, it is worth mentioning that the battery life is crazy good. Probably twice as long as my GS3.

I finally sat down with G2 and I9300 (w/Wolfson) and compared the two. First, G2 is considerably louder out of box. However, it's an easy root hack to turn up the volume on Galaxy. There is something similar for G2, but I have not rooted and didn't try it. Only thing I had to listen with was RE0. Tried a wide variety of lossless material using PowerAmp with no EQ. To my ears, I9300 was the consistent winner. It was more obvious on some things than others. Galaxy was purer, more transparent. With less detailed IEMs, you might not notice the difference so much. Both are quite good, IMO. But I think I am going to return the G2 and hold out a little longer.

Is it possible to have the G2 digitally output audio over the USB port?

They would probably tell you to use the cloud...even though Google Music only streams in 256kbps max.

I traded in my Samsung Galaxy Note 3 for a Life's Good G2. I am very happy. This particular G2 sounds immensely better than the particular Note 3 I had. Not even close.  The Note is a good phone with massive (for 2013) storage.  The stylus is impressive tech, but it is not something that I use with my needs and lifestyle.

The G2 just feels good in my hand. Ohhh, that doesn't good, but you know what I mean.

The buttons on the back are a total positive.  If you don't fight it and try to adapt to new tech then you'll be golden.

It would be interesting if somebody compare sound quality on really good samples between S4 GT-i9500 and LG G2.

Both phones are  equipped with Wolfson DAC. LG with microSD slot is really expensive now ($750 for version supporting 3g/4g in US), so if there is no sounds difference I would pick S4.

LG does not have Wolfson DAC -- don't know why people think this.

 

I found G2 inferior to I9300 w/Wolfson.

I have had this phone for about 3 weeks now and i am very impressed with the sound quality. It´s crisp, free from distortion and drives every IEM i have with ease. My gf have the note 3 and i found the sound out of that one although similar hardware to be much worse then out of the G2.  Oh and the battery life is epic! I mean it´s really really good. I just got 3 full days out of one charge. 

 

I have a few albums in 24/96 so i don´t use them for daily listening ( spotify premium for that purpose ) But it´s epic to have the possibility :)

do you have anything definitive that states it does or does not have a Wolfson?

I've got the N5 instead of G2, unfortunately, but am loving it so far. Its the first phone I don't feel the need to root and put Cyanogenmod in...though that will probably change in time.

Awesome, I sense a 128gig USB drive in my Christmas stocking.
