Not that great...even considering the price
When I first got it, it looked slick enough. I added music and plugged in the headphones and the sound was HORRIBLE! Grabbed my higher quality headphones and plugged them in and there was a significant improvement so the OEM headphones suck. But I can live with that, most do (including those ones from Apple). Now with the new headphones the sound was very bass heavy and to my surprise there are ZERO audio adjustments other than volume.
Can't operate it
I recently bought the MP823 to replace my Sansa that I had had for a few years. All I was looking for is something that would pay a few songs while I exercise, and also had a radio. The radio works great. And the unit will play any ONE MP3. The problem is it that the instruction manual and the controls are both poor. I can't figure out how to play a playlist or all the songs by a single artist. I can select any song to play but the following song will be random.
Great display but terrible rear camera
1. Retina display is darker and not nearly as good as the one in the iPhone. "Definitely not an iPhone w/o the contract".
2. HD Video is actually pretty good
3. Size is a lot smaller than the 3g, bad if you have normal or large hands, ok for teens and those w/ small hands.
4. Photo quality is much worse than the iPhone. And their posted photos show how much worse. Forget trying to print them and I'd argue not even good for the web based on their samples.
Retina display provides sharp images and text
The iPod touch is wildly popular for good reason. It's an extremely versatile device media player; pocket gaming machine; productivity tool; Internet communication device; and, with this latest update, pocket camcorder, still camera, handheld recorder, and FaceTime video phone. While its cameras fail to produce results as good as the iPhone 4, they make FaceTime possible, which allows us to more easily forgive their less-than-pristine images and movies.
relatively intuitive operation
Three years after Apple stretched the definition of “personal media player” to new heights with its class-leading iPod Touch, other manufacturers are just starting to catch up with Android-powered mini tablets. Despite the added competition, the latest revision of the device stays true to its award-winning heritage while folding in even more trickle-down features from the latest iPhone, yet again securing it a place at the top of the MP3-player pyramid.
My favorite iPod to date
Finally, I would highly recommend this product, which is why it gets five stars from me. I don't like the iPod Nano; it's too small for my hands, and the screen is too small for my eyes. While the iPod Touch may have app store access and Wi-Fi, I find it to be a really gimmicky device, that makes for a poor portable media player, (Apple was wise to position it as a handheld game system,) and is really an "iPhone without a phone."
Quality earbuds included
The Creative Zen X-Fi2 is a relatively inexpensive multimedia player released in late 2009. It offers a 3" TFT LCD touchscreen that is expected for modern players released around that time. One nice feature that the multimedia player offers is the built-in speakers which are great for sharing music with friends.
At first, I was excited to see that this Mp3 player not only would play my music but would allow me to listen to the radio, too. It's something I kind of missed when listening to my iPod. But, unfortunately, not much worked well.
Of course, I tried out the radio first. No go. I couldn't get any of the stations in town to turn in without static. For many of the stations, I couldn't get it to stop on the exact station number, though that may have been due to the touch screen. Or not.
