But those DAC's don't do much for improving the clarity or loudness for LG's in-built mono speaker, right? That's why I'm asking them to include some good stereo speakers in their flagships too.....
i just hope that it will suport AptX for bluetooth, it means more to me ;)
LG G6 teaser suggests an end to bootloops and cracked Screens.
I'm intrigue on how much this thing is going to cost. Yet, I have a bad feeling this will cost more than the launch price of the G5

Difference can be heard, not on the build in speakers, no mater how many they are. And in case it isn't clear yet - headphones or external amp DO benefit from better DAC.

But wait! Will it have the exclusive bootloop issue!? That's the best part of LG!

The problem is not Samsung, but Qualcomm and their lackluster DACs, although the SD835 is said to have a better one.

This phonea seem to pack every thing in one neat body...goo audio is something that i look for.thats why i bought an external amp,for samsung phones are really bad in audio. Dont care much about sd821,google pixel performs flawlessly with it..I know LG will optimize it to its best.

Wow, I was thinking I'd never want to spend money on a flagship again but a Quad DAC changes things. Not need for external DAC's or any kind of clutter. Damn I want this phone.
