On Apple products you don't even have the option, it just does it period.
As far as 1.2.5 I checked the song timeline and it seemed to me it was stopping say 5 seconds before it was scheduled to finish and the other one kicked in so that does not sound gapless to me. It was seamless but with a loss of few seconds at the end of a song.
Anyway I think we spent more than enough time on this feature and should instead enjoy the player and then rejoice when they finally fix it, again with whatever there setup means. I would urge them to use Apple type gapless as these guys have done it for years now and it works flawlessly.
There is no loss of any seconds at the end of any songs in 1.2.5 with gapless on the 5 second option. Every time, with every song and album I have that take advantage of having no gaps between tracks on the original cd, the dx50 would flawlessly end one track and roll into the next without even a hint at a pause. Allows for my live albums to play through uninterrupted.
I still don't get what the 5 or 10 second options even actually mean. If I set it to 10 seconds, I don't lose 10 seconds of any song, or even half a second, it still rolls perfectly into the next song unless you select the default option of 'close' or 'off', which would introduce a gap. It is silly that the default is off. Android phones the default setting is on, and there's not even a way to turn it off. But it works perfectly on my HTC one with flac files, much as it also works perfectly on the DX50 on either the 5 or 10 second setting with flac files. Unless you're using firmware 1.2.6, then, while it still does play gapless, it has a volume fade at the end of and start of the next song. I wouldn't really define it as a crossfade though, because the two songs aren't playing on top of each other, or fading on top of each other either.
