Probably has a more powerful amp / BT module is more powerful. Donít think PB3s are 5.0.
Unfortunately the BT5.0 radio should be a separate device in the phone since it's not backward compatible with 4.2 or older devices. So, it's likely the new phone has either better placement of the BT4.2 antenna and radio assembly in the new phone, or improved 4.2 antenna/radio for the new phone. It's also possible there were some audio chip/software changes made WRT bluetooth playback. I'd guess when iPhone ditched the audio jack on the 7 is when they made these improvements and there's likely no diffference between the 7 and 8/X in sound over BT.

BUT, I cannot argue that you won't hear any improvements since your "buddy" already confirmed there is one.
