You have lot of knowledge of music listening with mobile phones.
All mobile reviewers neglect this very important point.
I suggest you can start a new blog of yours. It will help many for sure because there are many who like to listen to good quality music. Good day

1) I don't have much knowledge about iPhones as I am an android user. As such to me the two smartphones that stood out in terms of audio quality over headphones are Vivo X5Max and Lenovo Vibe X3. Both are available in India. They have enough driving power for any kind of in-ear earphones you can through at them.
2) On a small budget of INR 2K, the best earphones I have ever come across for MUSIC is Cowon EK2. I believe it retails in India at around INR 1.3K. This earphone is not for bass lovers OR who love the popular V-groove (high bass + high treble with recessed voice) which are popular with electronic music. EK2 on the other hand has a flat frequency response, it produces the real sound with just the amount of bass + mids + highs as the composer intended!!! But it comes with big 10mm drivers which need smartphones that are capable to drive them like X5Max, X5Pro, Vibe X3 etc. With other smartphones with no dedicated headphone amplifier the EK2 may sound anemic as those phones do not have the power to drive those 10mm drivers.

technofreak9921, 01 Jun 2016Neither is SD 652 better than 820..But not a phablet anything below 5.5 inch is not of my taste
technofreak9921, 31 May 2016I would rather spend about 2-3k(about 30-40$) more and get mi5 .. Simple ..Without sd card support it's not valid option because 32gb is not enough now a days and 64gb model is yet to come

I guess that because both are running android lollipop. It does not bother me as i never listen music with v3max. It does not even have one fourth the audio quality of vivo x5max. It runs flac without any problem and i love that phone 10 times more than v3max. Some phones just come close to the heart.....

May be it is a bit overpriced in comparison to mi5 or lenavo vibe x3 but none the less v3max is a good and powerful phone with iphone user interface and far better than third class oppo f1 plus.

The phone is OK .. Feel is good ... But its just not worth the price ... The specs are not competitive on paper ... Rather go for lenovo vibe x3 or moto g4 plus or simply wait for any flagship ... I'd recently visited a few stores (offline) for a random check(India) and the scenario that I found out was hilarious ... I guess vivo and oppo are paying extra commission for selling their phones.. The sellers are literally not stocking good phones and simply forcing people to buy their phones ... Its a cheap stunt ... Vivo thumbs down .

I have no issues with g play store whatsoever.. You need to know which version you have to install.. I use 4.9 version and all works fine..It updates itself but when update needed I just easily reinstall.. I don't install crap spam apps like crazy so some play store isn't any issue for me..
And with audio I really don't remember when I last time used it for listening music.. Prob. year n half ago when I bought it to test..
And this mtk version works just perfect.. 4g signal inEU is no problem.. But been watching brand new videos of honor v8 with 2k screen and it is very nice pice for less money..
MobiFix, 24 May 2016Hi vivo x5 pro DOES support flac u need to have MT mediatek version not crappy snap dragon ver... moreThe MediaTek version of Vivo X5Pro is China bound only. It comes without any Google Play services pre-installed as using Google services is banned in their country. Users who buy MediaTek X5Pro to use globally faces a lot of issues like no guarantee or after sales support. Also installing Google Play services on these devices are a hit or miss as it has not passed the Google Android Certification Process and causes a lot of issues.
Internationally Vivo must provide Google Play services by default or else nobody will buy their Android based smartphones. To provide Google services any smartphone manufacturer must go through Android certification process through Android Compatibility Test Suite (CTS). This is compulsory from Android Lollipop (ver 5.0) onwards.
So the international version of X5Pro needs to pass this Google CTS test in-order to provide you the google services. Unfortunately as of now CTS does not support the ultra high resolution of FLAC files, hence neither the Google Play Music or Vivo's own "iMusic" apps can play FLAC files. However you can personally install third-party free apps like VLC player to play FLAC files on international version of X5Pro.
Globally Qualcomm Snapdragon chipsets are more renowned and respected than MediaTek. Hence Chinese smartphone manufacturers tends to use Snapdragon chipsets on their international versions. Hence the global version of X5Pro comes with Snapdragon 615 chipset and not the MediaTek one.
Default ability of a smartphone to play high-resolution lossless audio FLAC files is not entirely dependent on chipset. As an example the international version of Vivo X5Max comes with the same Snapdragon 615 chipset but support FLAC file playback by default. It is because it uses Android KitKat (ver 4.4.4) which does not need to pass CTS test when it was launched to provide Google Play services. So X5Max is best of both worlds, it gives you default FLAC playing capability through the awesome "IMusic" app that comes with every Vivo handset and also give access to full set of Google services you require to use the unit globally.
As I said before many-a-times, to me Vivo X5Max is their masterpiece. Best audio quality using HiFi 2.0 audio architecture, best screen quality, best built quality while being one of the thinnest smartphones in the world. Unfortunately it also their most expensive of the X series model launched globally at US $500 while X5Pro was much cheaper at US $400.
