rog phone 5 has it now..........
Question is whether they have it tuned and re-routed properly. Quad DAC but not tuned or re-routed properly will still end up with crap audio quality.

Also, jerryrigeverything has a video where he snapped ROG5 into half without much effort. That phone failed his durability test.

For sure that will happen. Wait for their reviews bah.

Also, there seem to be no information on who tuned the DAC. With LG, you know theirs are tuned by Meridian Audio. At least the ESS ones in V40 and V50.

Heard ESS dac being mentioned in one of the yotube review of ROG5. But I'm not into mobile gaming. The V50 ticks the boxes for me, hardware specs atleast. Hoping some company would continue Where LG has left.

Qoo10 for Korean set. No issue with SW updates.

USA set quite tricky.

Getting some opinions here, found a shop on shopee selling LG phones, enyiphones.sg, should I get:
v50 for $566
v50s for $599(8gb ram, 256gb storage)
G8x for $558 (6gb ram, 128gb storage)
v60 for $965

I doubt the v60 is worth almost double of the other options, but what about the other choices? I'm also open to any other suggestions, but I'm looking for a phone mostly for audio use.

My vote goes to V50 for better specs over G8X aka V50S (V50S = Korea Model, G8X = USA Model).
