    I would like a phone with good audio (obviously) that includes a good amp for decent volume too; good battery time; and which comes with a good camera for street photography (fast aperture). Thanks.

    Vivo nex S

    Thank you. Better than Meizu, Huawei or LG for combined budget and performance?

    I guarantee your satisfaction.

    Thank you. I'm currently in Asia (but not China) and all I can find thus far is the V11, which has a fantastic camera, but worse audio than the the Y95. Someone stole my phone in Phnom Penh and no one one understands why I haven't bought a new phone yet, simply because of the audio factor.

    Never tried the vivo but I know of its SQ. On the other hand, redmi note 5 with sound tuned by Dirac and internal DAC sounds amazing to my ears (and I paid only 180€ for 4/64 version)
  8. stugood12
    They sell Redmi here. What's Dirac?
  9. stugood12
    The "S" or not the "S"? Which is better?

    Read my google sheet in first post.

    Nex S better.

    If I only had a choice between

    Vivo V9


    Meizu Pro 7

    which would you go with?

    The Vivo seems to have a fuller and warmer sound, but the Meizu is louder and clearer.
    I was just using average headphones to test and these are the only good-sounding phones I can find in Saigon.

    Meizu pro7.

    Do they sell any LG or another model of meizu?
  15. stugood12
    No, quite limited here. I suppose different headphones can create a warmer sound.
