I agree , but what it mainly comes down to is which Android phone your using .

Not all of them have equal sound quality / loudspeaker quality .

Both the Iphone and Android have their own pro's and con's , its just upto the user to decide which suits him/her better.

Yup, you can't really rate "Android" sound quality you need to do a phone by phone comparison as almost all with have different physical capabilities and many even will have a different application by default.

Basically, and they lock out any carriers from messing with it. Thats why most android phones are majorly slow at stock, carriers add in so much bloatware

As for sound quality, as everybody else has said as far as android goes its a phone by phone basis, almost every android phone will put out different sound(Well, different brands at least).

Yup, one of the first things I did upon getting my captivate was to get rid of all that at&t bloatware that was completely useless

At any rate, using FLAC on a phone is pointless. First, the file size is absolutely ridiculous, second, the audio quality of a phone won't even provide what FLAC can offer, so it's moot. MP3 320 is the way to go for mobile devices.

Yeah depending on the Android device you may or may not be able to tell the difference. I was able to tell the difference on the iPhone 4 and my OG Droid but that's just me. I've asked friends and family if they can tell the difference between Lossless and MP3 and they just look at me like

Oh yeah OP did you decide on which device yet?

The best Android device for music is definitely the Samsung Galaxy S line of phones. They have the Wolfson DAC (digital-to-analogue converter) which was responsible for the great sound quality of earlier-gen iPods and the Zune HD. I've heard it and it can easily match any Sony Walkman or even my Cowon S9 player that's already known in the audiohpile world as a good portable source.

I'll vote Android by a small margin. You can really pick any of many amazing players, you can choose to sync with iTunes or manage it yourself, and those two choices give a media experience that is very much how you want it.
