I agree with you about Brazilian Portuguese, it sounds much softer on the ear than the European variety, which is full of harsh Zh and Sh sounds and strange unpronoucable nasal diphthongs.
Maybe you're used to listen to more Brazilian than Portuguese, but in my opinion, as I've heard a lot of Portuguese, I find much softer Portuguese than Brazilian, and I understand it better. Things depend on the person who perceives them, not in themselves

Los portugueses les gustan abreviar sus palabras frecuentamente no pronuncian el último vocal (en lugar de escudos dicen escuts--aunque ya
no usan escudos), y oigo estes abrevemientos entre portugueses en la
comunidad portugues circa de donde vivo. No soy experto en este idioma
pero creo que los brasileños no cortan las palabras tanto como los portugueses.

Sí, yo también he oído que quitan la última vocal.

Verdad. Por ejemplo he oído "vamos" prononciado como "vimsh" y "como esta" como "comshta"

I've got a Portuguese friend and he never says the last vowel of my name. For instance, he'd say 'irm' instead of 'irma'

Piacciono anche a me i modismi, solo che ci troveremo a che fare con i dialetti che si differenziano moltissimo da una regione all'altra. Ma possiamo provarci.
Ti aspetto
