1050 - Not quite what expected, 15 Mar 2013
I have been using sony walkmans for several years now and would say, in general am pleased with my purchases. Although the attached is without doubt a very good piece of technology, i would say it has veered off the path of a typical mp3 player, predominently i wanted to replace my 865 which has started to reset itself to the first song title following a charge or not turning on for more than 24 hours. I chose the 1050 due to the memory size (16gb the same as my 865) and sound reviews on various sites. on receiveing the product i was firstly taken aback by its size and weight, although the size was probably a misconception on my part, this is not the type of mp3 player you can slip into your shirt pocket etc. I would say this is a watered down version of sonys xperia phone, without the ability to phone. The biggest dissapointment is the memory, although you expect to get a 16gb memory, in reallity, with the 865 you only actually get about 14.7gb, the 1050 however only has 12gb spare memory, obviously with all the apps etc a substantial amount of the memory is taken. This also meant that the 14.7gb of music i have on the 845 wont fit on the 1050, making it not a good replacement. On a plus side the sound is good, and if you like watching movies etc the screen size is quite large, the price i paid was reasonable.
