But now prepare to buy the IPHONE, I see some people say online IPHONE sound quality is not good, not dynamic, and plosive obvious, but also harsh. Is that true? ? ? ? !

Go to some store and try it. It's not the worst, not the best either. On earphones, I thought as a MP3 player it was fine.

Sound quality adequate

Keep in mind folks buying the iPhones aren't really so concerned with audio quality, they just want portability, along with the 'bling' factor. Folks concerned with audio quality are unfortunately the minority, esp. as a percentage of the folks looking at/owning iPhones. Heck, most people keep the stock white earbuds and don't even bother making that inexpensive upgrade to get a little better sound quality.
