I'd like to know more about my phone's shuffle algorithm!

When on shuffle mode, do phones try to play songs which sound better next to each other?

I've been listening to a large collection of music files on my Samsung Galaxy Rush phone. I use the default music player. It may be my imagination, but I could swear that the phone plays songs which are somewhat alike in terms of tempo or...amplitude?...the way that a radio station might play songs that sound well one after the other. I've checked the phones user guide
, but all that it says is: "Shuffle all: Play all songs in a random order."
