KondriX, 23 May 2020Thanks for the answer. I've read somewhere that it does have a Hi-Fi Dac, just not a Quad one.... moreI have this phone and all I can tell is that the sound is decent, not the best but not bad, it really is not that bad, the top speaker is bass oriented so it can produce low-end frequencies while the bottom speaker is just a regular phone speaker, nothing cool about it but again, nothing bad about it also.
I made my custom preset as follows : 1st bar at 75% , 2nd bar at 90%, 3rd bar 80% 4th 75% 5th 50%, 6th 30% 7th 8th and 10th are at 35% and 9th is at 30%, with the equalizer like this and DTS deactivated it gives the best bass through the speakers but in some videos on youtube some low-end voices tend to sound a bit eh so this works mostly with music, if I watch a movie or something I leave it with the bass boost preset and activate DTS and in DTS settings I selected the side by side option for the best stereo effect.
It needs a bit of tinkering to get the sound right but overall I'm ok with it, if you want to use bluetooth devices or a pair of headphones just leave it on bass booster, my preset is good just for the built-in speakers...
I had a ZenFone 3 before getting my hands on the g8s and what can I say, the Asus has a better equalizer and a much better bass when it comes to the headphone jack, that's why I'm still using that phone for music in my car, if you care about bass, the g8s isn't going to be wow, sound through bluetooth seems a bit better than throught the headphone jack.

I've seen that Motorola has some pretty good audio quality recently. Or maybe you know another brand with high audio? Oppo?

It doesn't sound too good tbh. I've also got a Huawei P30 and it sounds very similar. Interestingly, I recently bought an S10 plus and it sounds a bit better, although not as good as a quad dac.
I've been using both with an lg hi-fi plus dac. With a short usb-c to usb-c cable it's quite an elegant solution, and means that I'm not tied to lg quad dac phones. Having said that, I just ordered a V50 though.

I've read somewhere that it does have a Hi-Fi Dac, just not a Quad one.. That's pretty bad, because I was looking forward to buy this phone. But in general I guess the audio quality is still good, no?

Can someone tell how is the audio quality of the wired headphones? If I understood correctly, this one does not have a QuadDac, but still has one, just not sure is the one from Qualcomm or a custom LG? Had a V20 and that one had very good audio quality.
Does anyone know the difference between versions in this model? What's the difference between the the EAW and the EMW models?
