Are iPods Still The Best Media Players Out There?

The reason I am posing this question is i have recently switched from T-mobile to Sprint because of constant lack of data connection in the part of Kansas City I live in. I am a Windows Phone fan but I ended up with a Galaxy S2 because of lack of Windows Phone choices on Sprint. All of the music players I have tried on my android device are awefull ... Google Music Player, Samsung Music Player, and WinAmp are not that great. WinAmp would be ok but something about android when it read meta data from MP3s it screws up some of them messing up genre, band names, titles and other stuff. The same files worked fine on iOS and Windows Phone but for some reason Android screws them up.

Is the iPod still the best viable stand alone player?? video is not important to me but music is.
