Smartphones let you watch movies, play games, and listen to music anytime and anywhere. Dolby Audio in smartphones enriches the experience with premium sound that adds power and depth to your mobile entertainment.
You use your smartphone for calls and texts, but it's also your portable music player, your portable movie theatre, and your portable game console. And while the convenience of having your entertainment with you all the time is undeniable, the entertainment experience itself—and the audio experience in particular—could be better.
Part of the problem is the small speakers. How much depth and clarity can a person expect from a pair of coin-sized speakers? A low-power amplifier can cause tinny or hollow sound, and so can the different techniques that compress files to make them easy to store and stream. The type of compression can have a dramatic impact on the final audio quality. Even the best headphones won't save a poorly compressed file.
At Dolby, we understand the challenges of smartphone audio. And no one has a better set of solutions for improving smartphone sound.
We know from our experience in the cinema and home theater that elevating the audio performance of smartphones requires a holistic approach. That means not just developing technologies for smartphone manufacturers to implement but actually working with manufacturers to optimize their devices for the best playback possible.
That's why Dolby audio experts custom-tune every smartphone model featuring Dolby Digital Plus to get the most out of the device speakers and dramatically improve clarity and performance.
In addition, Dolby® Digital Plus™ includes features such as virtualized surround sound and volume leveling for great listening experiences.
A smartphone featuring Dolby Audio offers a richer audio experience for your movies, music, and other entertainment. Look for devices from these manufacturers when shopping for your next smartphone.
