It's funny to see my change in just 2 months. I know this is phone fi but after getting my Cayin dap, my phone has been strictly Bluetooth is usage. Sound difference is big imo

Next time I'll go back to Nokia or Motorola for stock Android on a budget. I hope the SQ isn't too compromised.
A while ago, I saw a video about the leaked Nokia 9. As much as I didn't understand why one would need five cameras on the rear, it actually managed to make me interested. I think Nokia's newer releases provide quite a competition to other Android phones.

I am looking at getting a cell phone change from the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 to the iPhone XR but i heard that the LG V40 is still the best?

I'm currently using a Xiaomi Black Shark, the original one.
As of now it still doesn't have an official Android 9 release.

LG V50 is coming, but due to the 5G features, it will be thicker and expensive.
I picked up LG G8 thinkQ this week for its excellent Quad DAC and headphone output. To my horror, none of the Verizon stores had G8 in store; in fact, they did not have a single LG on display/demo in a sea of Samsung's and iPhones. I had to mail order it form Verizon on-line. To be fair, it came in less than 2 days.

To be honest, ALL of the TOTL phones from any brand have plenty of power and capability for my smartphone needs, so I picked the G8 based on audio quality, which is excellent, especially with a nice iem like CCA C16. It is very disturbing how phone manufacturers continue to abandon 3.5 mm headphone jacks, and I hope LG never follows suit.

I would do inventory how important sound is as a feature to you over others because I regrettably went with v40 over note 9, it easily falls shorter in all other areas but I think it's still passable as a flagship.

I heard that the LG V series is the only cell phone series to be able to push high impedance headphones natively without an external DAC.

I know the V20 they changed their dac to auto choose the power lvl from the ohms of the headsets. I know rooted v20s could have the older software to choose yourself. I doubt it would be on the lvl of a dac you could buy. I had iems that wouldn't even trigger the dac in my v20.
