    Life-span of Android operating systems?

    Hi everyone, I've been thinking of getting either the Hiby R5 gen2, or the R6 2020 version. The conflict I have is: I'd like a device I could freely use for at least 5 years, without becoming unusable for lack of updates and app support for their respective Android systems. Is this something...

    Android DAP

    Can anyone recommend an Android DAP? I do not care about analogue output as it would be connected to an ifi iDSD Neo. I don't care about memory as it would mostly be used for streaming. It must be able to run the LG ThinQ app, hence the need for Android.

    Android equalizer for portable dac

    I have a dragonfly black. I can't seem to find an android equalizer that works with it. I've tried Equalizer FX, 10 band eq and some other but none have any effect on the dragonfly. Which is a shame since I'd love to eq my headphones through my phone.
