Best phones for music 2021: top choices for audio on your smartphone Best phones for music

All phones are capable of playing music, but the best phones for music are a little more special than the others. With the headphone jack all but absent on most premium phones these days, the best options for mobile audiophiles aren’t alway found on the most popular models. 

This is exemplified by our number one pick, the LG V60. It’s a hard phone to find in Europe, but in the US is widely available. It has a headphone jack with a Quad-DAC that improves the audio output from any app, a huge bonus on a smartphone that hardly any others have.
