SanDisk Sansa Clip+ vs Galaxy S3 sound quality

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I'm kind of on a budget and I'd like to buy a new phone, but since I'd use it heavily for music, I started thinking about stuff. I know Nexus 5 would probably be perfect, but that's a bit too expensive. Then I thought I'd be glad with a Galaxy S3. I heard bad stuff about S2's sound quality, though. I'm wondering how did that carry over to Samsung's next-gen Galaxy and if I should consider a separate music player. FiiO X-series is, unfortunately, a bit out of question. Really, the affordable stuff for me in terms of music players is something like Sansa Clip+. But then, it's such a cheap device. I realize that doesn't usually reflect on the quality of a device, but... still.

 

Whimpering aside, is Galaxy S3's sound quality comparable to Sansa Clip's, or does either of them win? I'd just like to read some opinions first - if they're similar or Galaxy loses by just a tiny bit, then I see little point in investing in a separate music player. At least for now.

I have a galaxy s3 since last week (it's still sitting in the box :D) so i can't tell you anything about sound quality. But I can give you an advice. You have to be lucky to have a medium usage of the phone (calls, text, web navigation..) and have it to survive until evening, try and figure with, let's say, 2 to 3 hours a day of music. I'd get a separate device just for music instead. Otherwise buy a second battery :)
