Vivo Xplay 3S with ESS9018 and OPA2604 - Page 3

If either of them had T-Mobile bands I would sell my nexus 5 in a heart beat.

Thanks for the links, but for me without a MicroSD slot it loses its appeal, even if the audio is very good. This is unfortunate for a multimedia phone.

post #34 of 88

from the google translate, It seems that the vivo is a bit better sounding device compared to TCL Idol...

The vivo xplay already sounds very good but 16gb/32 is not tolerable
My note 3 has a total storage of 100gb
. Can live with a slightly less sq but much better multimedia package

yeah, I'm waiting for my TCL S960 with 16 gig to arrive and probably will max out the available 12-13 gigs of storage pretty soon. I would gladly sacrifice 1 of the 2 available sim slots for a microSD slot but I have DX50 anyways so...

I don't like the lack of a micro-SD slot on the Xplay 3s. 

 

The Xplay 3s appears to run Android 4.3 (with “Funtouch” on top –whatever that is). The Xplay 3s might recognize added storage via micro-USB. That would mean that with a (micro to USB 2) adapter, you could add a 128 gb small flash drive that would hang off the bottom (like my Dragonfly off my Note 3).

 

The idea that the XDA crew could root the Xplay (remove Funtouch--whatever that is) and add V4A sounds great, but that seems like a future project that may or may not happen. I would prefer it if iBasso worked on its DX100 by adding the (now old) Qualcomm 600 processor with KitKat (rooted with V4A pre-installed) and shipped it out (saying, you guys have fun).

For me I will stay on my rooted V4A Note2 Exynos and wait for more reviews on the new coming DAP's X5, DX90 and Calyx M. 

A rooted 3S with V4A and a micro SD slot would have been just perfect for my needs. But the capacity storage has broke my dreams ;)

The Vivo XE800 earphones that are supposed to be paired with the X3S look to be OEM'ed by VSONIC? They look like an Apple-fied VSD1/S...

 

 

But, apparently, it has more in common with the GR07, using the same 11mm, 50 ohm impedance, bio-cellulose (yes, apparently they're still making them with this material, contrary to rumors) drivers.

looks much better than the GR07 :D

Strange to go to so much effort to cater for audiophile sensibilities, yet omit a card expansion slot.

 

Really, I do find that strange.

Oh man, anywhere to buy just these biggrin.gif

Members often attach add-ons to their source to bypass the DAC and amp sections. Perhaps here you'll attach additional storage instead (that is, if the Xplay 3s can recognize external storage).

 

 

My Note 3 (with Android 4.3) recognizes this 32gb flash drive instantly.  If I were going to put it in a pocket, I'd use my cable so as to curl it (instead of the plug in the picture).  Plus, I'd buy a physically smaller flash drive.

 

Again, if the Xplay will recognize the storage I can still see trying this phone. The flexibility of a powerful processor,  adding V4A,  and trying different music apps (that are already largely bug-free) is a definite bonus.

vivo xplay 3 s as well as TCL idol X + do have usb OTG function, so yeah - they will recognize it :)
