Does anyone know the released date of the Vivo Xplay 3S?

 

1: The phone model is like this: TCL Idol X + S960 :) I have that, not the Lenovo :)

 

2: AFAIK it's already released...

Thanks, sorry, I'm not up on these phones (names and numbers).

 

And yeah, after reading your post, I see where the Xplay 3S sold out (1000 units) in one-third of one second. I guess it's going to be a long wait for an international customer. I did read somewhere where the Xplay 3S was suppose to be released globally.

they say xplay 3s is better than idol X+ and that's something. I imagine that sounds wonderful, though not including a SD card slot Is a VERY dumb thing to do in a hifi smartphone... heck, mine has two sim slots. I could be happier if one of them was SD card slot... oh whatever...

and now with the availability of 128G micro SD card is just unbelievable for me, I'm really pissed off about that :confused:

Yeah, I don't like the lack of storage either, but I'll reluctantly plug extra storage to it if it's a good sounding player and doesn't need connectors space for external DACs and amps (because it suppose to have that covered). I just hope it's a low output impedance device.

Hi,I am 3s buyer from HK.3s will be sent to me on 15th March.
Although 3s cannot support micro SD slot, it's support otg (Max to 64gb) like galaxy note 3 and portable hard disk when 3s connected with power supply . The quality of sound maybe the best smartphone ever......

Been listening to my TCL IDOL X + and all I can say is - WOW. it can get almost as loud as my DX50 using the stock iems that came with it (they are quite nonefficient it seems). as for other things - it has everything. details are all there, sound is smooth and just sounds high end (yeah, I know, sound sounds... ). compared to it, DX50 seems a little colder and thinner. sound is very articulate ( by that I mean the realness of the sound, instruments seem to be really near me, they have all the timbre) and authoritative, I like it better in that regard compared to DX50. only thing is, the bass a tad bit loose on the TCL compared to DX50, and that is only when I listen to the Bass Heavy XB90EX. stock player is meh, but gladly android has lots of good music players available for free or a very little fee..

Could you please let me know about idol x+ sound quality in terms of bass, mids and highs? which is dominating? Are highs bright and aggressive or smooth or rolled off?

 

 

Also Can you tell me which IEM you are using with?

 

Any idea on output impedance on this idol x+?

it's a natural authoritative sound. not thin and analytical, but very detailed. also, smooth and everything sounds very natural. everything is balanced, highs are not harsh with any phones I used (Meelec m6, Sony XB90EX, Sony XBA-1, Koss ksc75 and some others...) they are just smooth extended and sparkly, but never grainy or sibilant.

 

mids are liquid smooth (by that I mean never thick, but not thin or tubey) and detailed. really enjoy listening to some vocals and acoustic instruments.

 

bass is quite punchy and can rumble a lot. but it does not overpower, nor bleed.

 

also, staging Is very good. phones can deliver quite a convincing stage in all three dimensions, and it can get very big or intimate, depending on the recording.

 

not sure about impedance though. co0nsidering how well rounded bass it delivers, I guess it isn't high. also, there is ZERO hiss with any iems pluged in. compared to that, DX50 noise floor is a bit higher.

Thats really great. Till now only for HTC One M8,  I'm coming across this kind of positive reviews

 

Here in my country flipkart is the sole distributor and price is reasonable. Its coming as Alcatel OneTouch Idol X+

 

How is the operating system? I don't know why they are not including vanilla android? Skins really hinder performance

well, the skin seems pretty light and usable. actually, it is pretty good. no lag. I'm pretty sure in terms of sound quality in headphones, this phone is one of the best out there. :) I really like how it sounds, so yeah :) go for it. only thing to consider - you will be stuck with onboard memory. there is no microsd card slot and frankly, 16 gigs (12.8 usable) isn't enough, at least for me...

Just got this phone last week. Easily the best phone audio in the world. No contest. Sounds as good or better than my Geek Out.
