A detailed step by step guide on how to install and setup Dolby Atmos Sound Mod and ViPER4Android Sound Mod on Huawei/Honor Devices running EMUI 5.x. Whenever a new smartphone is made and released, a lot of money is spent on its marketing. In those marketing materials, we often see how great the phone’s camera is, how sturdy the build is and how nice the display is, etc. But we seldom see these marketing materials boasting about audio capabilities of a smartphone. With the exception of LG V Series of the phones, I do not see any OEM boasting about its outstanding audio experience on its phones. You know what is the reason? Because almost none of the OEMs put any effort in delivering a great Audio experience. Period.
