    I had an LG G2 and once I tweaked the audio settings I think my Z1s is noticeably better.

    Compared to the G2, Sony is said to have the better hardware. While Sony is not the very best, The latest Xperia devices with Snapdragons are typically rated in the top 5 list of most serious sound reviews I've seen. LG is cited in a few of these reviews in the "stay away" category.

    Sound is very subjective, though. For what it's worth, I'm quite fussy about music and sound quality, and love how my Xperia sounds. I use Neutron music player. (Paid, Limited Eval version available) and typically use Sennheiser head-cans for playback with my Xperia.

    I'm not impressed with the audio on my Z1s. Out of the box it's very thin and tinny. Fiddling with the equalizer helps a bit, but I get far better audio from my Moto X. Not even close to iPhone 5 or my Lumia 928.

    Quality of sound is a VERY subjective evaluation. I was concerned about sound quality too and I went into a TMo store today and asked if I could checkout a Z1s even though I couldn't buy it until Wednesday. The rep was helpful and brought out what I believe was there training unit. Plugged in my Klipsch S4's and listened. I thought the sound with the stock player was fine, good enough for me to ask the rep if he could hold a unit for me. Since it was music I wasn't familiar with, time will tell. I really need to get Poweramp on the phone and test with music I am familiar with.

    I do know that I haven't found a phone yet that sounds better than my Cowon dedicated media player. My 2 cents!
