A great audio experience on a mobile device is hard to find these days. Today let us do something about it. In this guide, we will tell you how to install Dolby Atmos on Android Oreo devices. Dolby Atmos for Android Oreo greatly increases the audio experience on Android devices.
If there is one thing that Android OEMs really need to concentrate on, it should be the audio experience on the mobiles they make. 2017 has been the year of narrow display and I really hope 2018 would be the year of better audio quality on Android devices. By no means, the audio quality is bad on Android. But it is not great either. It’s just okay – nothing special about it. Apple nails the audio experience over the headset on their devices. Even the Android flagships are nowhere close except for the LG V Series of smartphones.
The Dolby Atmos audio mod intends to improve the audio experience on Android devices. When it is nothing compared to having great audio hardware, it sure improves the experience from okay to good. In this guide, we will tell you how to improve the audio experience on Android devices running Android Oreo using the Dolby Atmos Mod for Oreo.
