7 Best Android Smartphones That Are Built for Music

Music is the balm to the soul!

There’s only one problem with reality: It lacks any background music. Jokes aside, let’s face it, music produces a kind of euphoria which all of us can’t do without. So in celebration of music, here’s a list of the best Android smartphones that are designed for your listening pleasure.

Samsung Galaxy S9
Check Samsung Galaxy S9 price below:

Samsung has worked with AKG to produce the front-firing speaker and the bottom-firing speaker on the S9. The speakers are 1.4x louder than the ones on the Samsung Galaxy S8; it is so loud to the point that even the elderly will be able to hear the song you play.

Another great thing about the S9 is that it incorporates a 3.5mm headphone jack. You heard us right – a 3.5mm headphone jack. A lot of phones these days do not come with a headphone jack but with this phone, you’ll be able to listen to your favourite tunes with your trusty wired headphones.

ZTE Axon 7
Best mid-range smartphone for music
Check ZTE Axon 7 price below:

The ZTE Axon 7 features dual Hi-Fi audio chips which let you listen to music the way it's meant to be heard – vibrant and distortion-free, even when you listen to it using a pair of inexpensive earphones.

The ZTE Axon 7 also packs front-facing stereo speakers that are complemented with Dolby Atmos surround sound technology. This allows you to fully immerse yourself in the music you listen to no matter what it is – be it classical music or a rock song.

LG V20
Check LG V20 price below:

You are probably familiar with LG as a company the manufactures fridges or television but are you aware that they manufacture phones? If you’re not, let us introduce the LGV20. It sports Quac DAC,which translates to a better audio experience as you’ll get better sounding audio minus the noise and distortion.

Besides being capable of playing breathtakingly beautiful audio, it’s also capable of recording audio amazingly well. It comes with a built-in HD recorder which can handle really high inputs. This means you can record your favourite band playing at the concert despite all the background noise and relive that concert again and again when you hit that replay button.

Check HTC U11 price below:

If you’re a person who wants a smartphone that doubles as a music device, then the HTC U11 might just be the phone of your dreams. It comes equipped with a tweeter and subwoofer combo that is loud. Besides being loud, they offer punchy bass and crisp highs – perfect for the hardcore bass head.

One unfortunate thing about this phone is that it does not come with a headphone jack but fortunately, the team at HTC included a pair of USonic earbuds. The USonic earbuds have the ability to tune the audio according to your preference and when you add active noise cancellation to that, you’ll experience music like never before!

Best with shock and water resistance
Check LG G6 price below:

LG has another phone that made it into this list – the LG G6. The LG G6 packs a single bottom-firing speaker that is thunderously loud. How loud is it? Well, let’s just say you won’t have to crank up the volume to the maximum to wake your neighbours up. As such, it’s perfect if you want to have a party where no one is invited but yourself (no shame in that).

Another thing that solidifies this phone as great is the battery life. The LG G6 has a 3,300mAh battery that will easily last you for a day even with heavy usage. It also supports the Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 which can bring the battery from 0 to 100 in a matter of minutes, so you can get back to listening.

Sony Xperia XZ2
Check Sony Xperia XZ2 price below:

The Sony Xperia XZ2 comes furnished with front-facing stereo speakers which use S-Force Front Surround to provide an excellent soundstage. Don’t enjoy listening to a song through a speaker? Fret not, Sony has got you covered with LDAC technology. It lets you experience music at its best even when you use a pair of wireless headphones.

Another noteworthy feature of the Xperia XZ2 is the Dynamic Vibration system which functions to vibrate the phone according to the intensity of the music. This feature doesn’t limit itself to music, you can also use it for YouTube videos, movies or any content that plays audio for that matter. How cool is that?

LG V30
Check LG V30 price below:

The LG V30 is a phone that every audiophile can get behind. It has a headphone jack and best of all, the 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC to support it. This increases the dynamic range and makes it less susceptible to harmonic distortion even when you use a pair of normal headphones to listen to music.

There’s one more good thing about this phone: It supports Master Quality Authenticated (MQA). It has an MQA decoder that basically packages high-resolution audio into a small file size – theoretically, you can stream music without worrying too much about your bandwidth.
