Hi all, I'm looking at getting a new phone this weekend and am wondering what Android based phone will be good with sound quality and will work with my iBasso D4 if any? Was also wondering if any can play flac? Looking mostly toward the Galaxy line but will consider recomendations also. I have Grado SR60s and REO that will be pairing with.
If I recall correctly, any Android phone with ICS or higher, natively supports FLAC. If for whatever reason it doesn't with the built-in music player, there are many apps ( Read: PowerAMP ), that will do the supporting for you. My wife has a GS3 and it supports my uDAC with no apps/modding necessary. I see no reason why it wouldn't support the D4. Not sure your SR60's will improve much with an amp though.
Currently, I have a Lumia 900 and am eligible for an upgrade through Best Buy but, I'm holding out for that beast the HTC One.
