I got a work S8 but my own personal phone is a JCB dumb phone. The radio on the JCB is superb, but on the Samsung it's a bit meh.

Not really Android, but...Blackberry Q10 = awful. No mono mode and has some bizarre DSP you can't turn off that makes everything awful.

Currently using a Xiaomi Mi A1. Pretty decent, but no RDS.
Why do you want mono mode? I know I had need for it in the past when I was in a bus and wanted to share one earphone with someone else.

As in, it wouldn't drop back to mono when the signal is poor.
Even better "feature"...doesn't let you turn on the FM radio if it hasn't seen a cell tower since it booted, because it "doesn't know what country you're in". Found that out on a camping trip in the middle of nowhere.
