From cell phone to cell phone they have been getting better and better with video and audio recording quality (I went from a S2 > S3 > S5 > S7) and the MIC in my S7 can handle loud Motocross events perfectly, and they are very loud, but I went to two concerts this past fall/winter and oh man...the sound had a lot of distortion (My ears literally rang for three days straight after Metallica - they wheren't joking around with volume levels, lol). Yea I "could" get a real camera but some concerts don't allow dedicated cameras with add-on lenses, blah-blah-blah, etc. and was only allowed to film with a phone. So anyway, jumping from a S7 to a S10 (I know it would probably be mostly speculation at this point since the phone hasn't been released yet) but could it be expected that the new phone "could" be able to handle recording a loud concert audio without distorting? If so I'm definitely buying one, if not, I might pass on spending a grand on a new phone since my main interest in upgrading from my S7 is video/audio recording capability.
