Thanks for the laugh. Love this forum.

I just bought a new LG G2, 32GB, in Sweden. The sound quality was actually kind of a disappointment. Tried some songs, and as Samsung note 3, there is some distortions with my Phonak pfe-232. The sound was pretty unexciting and instrument seperation wasn't very apparent. 


I will do some more music listening and do some more update. 

 

There is also some creaeking when pressing on the upper back plastic on the G2. Anyone else experiencing this, or should I apply for a replacement? It is minor but I wouldn't want it if it isn't supposed to be like that.

Just had another listen to the device. I am still unsatisfied with the sound quality through my Phonak PFE-232 and the speakers. The sound is just too flat and the highs are on the verge of being hissy. Didn't enjoy listening to my tracks at all, I figured that I'l become tired rather quickly from listen to LG G2. 

 

However, EVERYTHING else with the phone I did seem to enjoy. Beautiful screen, knock on worked 100 % of the times I tried, The video I recorded didn't actually focus hunt as much as some youtube videos I've seen, actually I don't really think it did, but I just tried the video recorder in my room. My voice was clear from the video recording as well. All I can say it is a pity that the sound didn't far well with my ears (is this a correct expression?). 

 

Really, it is a keeper, really cool responsive phone, which in my case is let down by the flat audio output. The FM-radio is a nice touch as well.  

 

I might buy the Samsung s3, even though it's pretty old, it is a bit cheaper now, and from what've read, the sound quality is among the best out there, if not the best?

 

Anyone tried Nokia Lumia 1020? is the sound quality good on that device? Though I don't really enjoy some of the pictures it takes due to OVERsaturation.

Interesting observations... To me the Note 3 did not sound very good compared to the G2. May i ask what music player you use? 

post #36 of 48

I used the stock music player, does it make a difference if you download other music players?

post #37 of 48

It might, try power amp for example.. Great player! What files are you using?

post #38 of 48

It's kind of a mix of different tracks. I try to have as high quality files as possible. Listened to Celine Dion FLAC, Iron Maiden, Chopin. Don't really wanna mess with too many second party music player apps as I want the phone to be in as good shape as it can for my return. The Samsung s3 is on sale here in Sweden, if they are not all gone, do you have any experience with that phone? 

 

My PFE-232 seems to produce some background noise on both the Samsung note 3 and LG G2, but less apparaent on LG G2. LG G2 was flat sounding, note 3 exciting, Note 3 lacked a bit instrument seperation, which LG G2 did as well. I think Iphone 5s might be the king of music still :(  perhaps. FM-radio is a really nice touch as I am really fed up with my never-updating music library.

my girlfriend have the note 3, I guess it's a good phone if you need the "note" features. I was going going to get the note but but then felt that I had no use of the pen, so I went LG. and since I have owned Samsung phones for 4 years it was time for a change.

You guys need to root the G2 and get Franco Kernel. Takes the balls to void your warranty and a good bit of research but your audio quality will improve if you get Franco Kernel and flash Cyanogenmod.

what is franco kernel? I am going to try Winamp player, and maybe neutron? which is supposed to be good.

Its a custom kernel, a piece of the operating system that can be customized if your phone is rooted.

I have rooted and im running cyanogen 10.2 on my G2 and i stand by the G2 sound quality. at least compared to other smartphones. There are many things you can do when it comes to the sound when rooted. Viper mod is one of them for example.

CM is amazing for sound, it has noticeably improved every phone I've used it with. Had to switch to AOKP for my N5 as there is no stable CM11 yet, but Franco Kernel still helps; if he has it for G2 you should look into it, it lets you manually control analog and digital gain which can improve dynamics and eliminate hiss and some grain when used properly.

Can you use franco in harmony with cyanogen? Cyanogen works so darn good on the g2 that i dont want to flash something else on it.
