I hate to leave the world of MPx players, but i have to admit that my Sigmatel player's firmware is way too buggy. Not having USB 2.0 high-speed interface doesn't help either, so till the Meizu M8 comes out i need something to satisfy my ears and eyes.
When browsing a local online store, the Iriver Clix 2 caught my eye. And i also stumbled upon this review
. 2.2 inch OLED DISPLAY? OH MY GOD!!!!
(yes, i NEEDED to shout that). That means crystal-clear videos.
Add touchscreen at the corners, fully customizable Flash graphical interface, the ability to play Flash games, 20+ hours of battery in music mode, 5hrs on videos and great playlist organization, plus the usual features like FM radio, voice recording and text reader and you get... Well, you get an Iriver.
This thing is $165 for the 2 gig version, but it'd be fully worth its money. Actually, i'm debating between this and the X20 FM, which is $140 for 2 gig and has a 2.2 inch TFT, regular (non-touch) controls, and a plus coming from the MicroSD card slot, integrated speakers and line-in jack. But the X20 lacks games and the build quality isn't too good.
Honestly, i fell in love with the Clix 2. It'll sure attract many, many, many looks (and maybe my girlfriend will finally stop using my classmate's rockchip player
, that freakin' annoys me as this guy is interested in her).
Anyway, should i go to the other side and get the Iriver, or look around for a nice and sexy (and cheaper) Rockchip player?
Hey hey hey, wait! This is MyMPx
Player, not myIriver! I forgot to check a local auctions site, found some sleek rockchip players pretty cheap. I'm off to browse through them a lil more and i'll tell you what i find.
I found myself some really nice Rockchip players.
2.4 inch screen, 2 gig, touch sensitive controls, microSD card slot. $90.
Big ass touchscreen (2.8 inch), 2 gig, microSD card slot. $103. But i don't like the iPhone clone look this device has, so i'll probably get the first one.
Or of course, the Onda VX858 which is $82 for 1 gig and can support up to 4GB extra via miniSD. But again, it looks like an iPhone clone.
What do you think about them?
EVEN LATER EDIT, 5AM haha.
I've just seen the magic word written in that auction: MEIZU. Yes, MEIZU. The M6 aka MiniPlayer, it doesn't need any presentation. 4 gig, $149. Now i REALLY know what i am getting.
