OT - Best Smart Phone for Audio Types

It's that time again when I need to upgrade my phone. the iPhone 5 seems like an easy choice except I hear I cannot import my own .mp3 sound effects for my own ring tones... True? How lame.

Any suggestions?

And here I thought you meant music creation.

I'd go with Android, then, if your concern is easy ringtones plop them in the folder on the sd card and done.

For listening, well, the Galaxy S3 and Note 2 feature a Wolfson DAC. Look around on headfi.org, there are some guys running USB DACs on their Androids iirc, too.

Neutron Player is also really nice (UI looks like a DJ app lol, but... yeah) with it's parametric EQ, 64-bit audio processing, and a slew of other features aimed at audiophile types. The dev is easy to get a hold of, too.

Yeah, I realize that I would be missing out on Figure and that would suck but I do everything in Reason already so I would live with the choice.

Any other thoughts?

I guess if ringtones are more important than audio Apps iPhone 5 sounds like a no go. For all other considerations its the only choice. iOS is light years ahead of the competition. There's so much good stuff out there for iOS musicians. Android is still trying to get over latency issues as far as I can tell ..... besides you can't get Figure on anything but iOS so it's a no brainer

It's not that ring tones are "more important" but I do make them and I like to use them

Are you sure you cannot use MP3's as ring tones on the iPhone 5? I would have thought you could. I don't have one so I can't check.
