Real audiophiles should dump their iPhones and buy LG G7, V35, or V40 phones, no?

If these specs aren't convincing, I don't know what is: Quad ESS Sabre DACs, up to PCM 24/192 and DS 256, different digital filters, MQA, Tidal, Qobuz, dedicated headphone jack, up to 2TB microSD for music storage, and even a built-in equalizer for ageing, hearing-impaired, Etymotic ER4 users like me. The great speaker is icing on the cake. By the way, I haven't listened to any of them.

My Samsung S9+ is a musical delight when combined with the Sony WH1000M2. So too is is LGV40 at a much lower price. I have no opinion on Apple.

LG V30

Plug it to your hi-fi stereo sound system in your listening room with all your favorite tunes in one spot. When the music is playing we don't think anymore, we just enjoy without tinkering any longer. It's a modern change that allows us to do multitasking.

Soon we'll be able to use our phones to acoustically fine-tune our rooms.
...And from any music source, even analog.

Real audiophiles don’t use their phones for serious music time. If they did it would be just to play uncompressed files to an external DAC and stereo. :)

Of course, especially when audiophiles are stuck in an airplane for several hours with their Etymotics.;)

I can't spin my records on any smart phone, and believe me, I've tried.
