    Here is a sample of music playback from my Z30. I'm not comparing it to any other device. Please, I beg of you, use a good set of ear buds or phones to listen to this. Otherwise you're just hearing your current backup system instead of the Z30. The video was shot with my PlayBook, which actually does very good sound recording.

    everybody(blogs included) knows that the N5(actualy all nexus devices) speakers aren't good...try comparing it to the HTC one speakers...that would be a better comparison since they both have stereo speakers with some sick sound technology...BOOM SOUND vs NATURAL SOUND ...i am salivating already.

    I think someone already did a comparison between the HTC One and the Z30 for audio quality. The Z30 won in their opinion and the opinion of the HTC One owner, but I think that it is fairly subjective really. Thing to note as well, unless they have patched the problem, try the test with an app like YouTube instead (didn't watch the test, just a thought here) as it is known that the stock music app delivers sub par audio quality on the Nexus 5.

    In the end the only thing that matter is sale numbers and the Z30 fails miserably against all major smartphones

    This thread is about the device sound quality

    It's very good. Was on my bed falling asleep to some Jack Johnson playing on my Z30 and my buddy commented on it versus his S4.

    It's not just that it's loud. The quality is so full and rich. Stunning.

    Well to be fair, nexus 5 has one of the worst speakers in smart phone history.

    My husband has the nexus 5 and he agrees. Says the speakers are horrendous.

    Yeah well it happens. The thread is about speakers not about sales.
    But yeah the Z30 speakers are great.

    N5 isn't overrated. It's praised for what it is, a phone with great specs and low bloatware, for a fraction of the cost.

    Nexus 5 is a good phone for specs whores that like to go to a Pub to annoy iphone users about their specs... (it's even funny because the Iphone 5 with the crap specs is actualy faster lol)

    The speaker on the N5 is bad. For me, I use my headphones/earphones on my phone much more often than the speakers.

    Sadly, headphones and earphones dont sound very good on this phone either.

    I have the N5. The speaker is terrible. I'd hope the Z30 's speakers would be better...

    $350 off contract pricing? I'll compromise on the sound quality of the speakers.

    Again, nexus 5 is mostly for devs and tech savy users... nexus 4/5 is the best phone to customize the software for fun.

    Some devs prefer these for app building.

    Not trying to defend nexus 5 here but to share what I have understood.

    I don't own a z30 but a z10... and I still use it as my daily driver instead of my nexus 5.

    Back to topic, I would say z30 is the winner in terms of usability and build quality.

    For price and hardware design, n5 is my bet.

    My local Bell store had the Z30 next to the HTC One so I was able to bring up a Youtube music video on both to compare. It would be very hard for me to say which one is better, they both were pretty loud and had decent sound (for a phone).
