Hi everyone, first post here as I'm looking at buying a new mp3/avi player to replace my old faithful NexII which I only recently upgraded with a 2GB CF card. Alas the Stop/Off button decided to break and having to take the battery out to turn it off has become too annoying. So on with the questions:
Firstly, I'm considering the Meizu M6 4GB Model in Black which can be had for some good deals now and sounds like it's one of the top players in this sector. However there are a few cheaper options I'd like to explore.
I was impressed with the review of the Optimus X
as seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zRts7GyLZXU
But not too keen on the white version and also the button layout. Can anyone confirm if the other players in the Optimus Series
are using the RockChip
and would therefore be capable of playing back XviD as opposed to AMV?
I'm considering the Optimus Zoom
as I like the simple style and black coloring. Does anyone know if it is black all over? I really don't like the chrome/mirror finish on the Meizu/iPod and would prefer all black.
I'm also not too keen on the touchpad on the Meizu and buttons are fine with me, especially if it's living in my pocket when playing music. Do either the Meizu or the Optimus player have a Lock
feature so that you won't accidently adjust the volume/skip tracks/etc when carrying the players?
Battery Life: dapreview said they managed to get a good 4.5 hours of video playback on the Meizu. Anyone know how the Optimus compares? The website only claims 8 hours for music compared to Meizu's 20 so I'm not to hopeful on the video front. If it's less than 2 hours then I think the Meizu will be worth the extra dollars. I also like the interface on the Meizu a lot more, but hate the chrome so its a close call.
So, can anyone else contribute more arguments for/against the Optimus Series? I'm hoping razzer001
will drop in here to answer some questions directly, but if others have the players/knowledge then please help me out here. Thanks everyone in advance.
