After demise of the LG mobile department there left no one Android vendor seriously dedicated to providing top notch audio experience. Well… maybe Sony could be vindicated. They had once ditched headphone jack, from Xperia XZ2 to Xperia 1, and then backtracked. What was the stimulus? Economy, stupid: their sales figures dropped through the floor of 1 mln devices total. This was sufficient to somewhat clear their minds. Lo and behold, mobile department is again in black for more than 2 consecutive years.
Worse still, it took ca. 5 years for me to finally locate skeuomorphically-designed audio player app sufficient for my ingrained sense of beauty.
