You're kidding right? You're obviously one of those millions of victims of Apple's marketing hype. Please read up on a few hi end audio forums for enlightenment and expand your limited knowledge horizon.proximal said:Still not enough. Your phone may do all of those things well enough for you, but unless your phone has audio adjustment features and wide format support in a 60+ gig package I'll stick with a dedicated music player. You can whine all you want; no phone out there is good enough for some people.
And since I already disproved your claim that the battery isn't replaceable: if the iPod's sound quality is so bad, why do so many people at forums like head-fi and hydrogen audio have them? Why does it seem to do so well in RMAA tests?
Just FYI, my phone music player supports has better audio fidelity and supports a tons more audio related features than the cheap chinese made IPod that Jobs and his chinese slave labors are pushing on herded and blind folded sheep.
Open your eyes to this (phone's audio portion of the feature set):
Channel support (Stereo, Stereo swapped, Mono Join, Mono left, Mono right).
Preamp descrease, increase, clear.
Audio driver, wave output null audio.
Support for multiple audio streams within a given audio file.
Adjustable buffer size.
Enable music playback in the background.
Audio Equalizer in following bands (60 Hz, 170 Hz, 310 Hz, 600 Hz, 1 Khz, 4 Khz, 6 Khz, 12 Khz, 14 khz, 16 khz, and pre-amp)
Support for various popular audio stream standards (shoutcast, mms, http).
Come on, IPod that!!! The POS ipod doesn't even have a builtin speaker for Christ sake. Yeah, this POS must be the best audio player on the planet cuz' its sold 60 million copies and made in China!!! (sigh, what a bunch of sheep those 60 million people). This must be the same logic ppl use to claim that toyota corp. make the best cars since there are more of 'em on the road (camrys, lexuses, etc)
And let me remind you again if you have forgotten my previous post, the audio features are just a tiny subset of the features (wifi, gps, dish channel remoting, bluetooth keyboard, etc...) that my now over a year phone has.
So please refrain from commenting on stuff that you have no clue on.
