I post this review as more of a warning to X-Series owners possibly thinking along the same lines as I did. "A, Z must be better than a X. Surely?". I'm gutted to report that if you buy the Z for playing music the answer is a solid no.
What is a Z? It's Sony using the screen from a phone and the Android operating system. A smartphone without the phone - a smart.
Build quality. The X is a purpose built MP3 player. It's build quality is outstanding - OLED screen, metal push buttons and carbon styling. The Z is a B...I...G screen in an aluminium case with small moulded slim buttons. In a droptest fight, I would suggest the X would suffer much less damage. In a game of conkers, the X wins too.
Sound quality. The X is a purpose built MP3 player. It was built to play music well and it does. The Z is a phone that has been stripped down and then had software installed to turn it into a Walkman. I could well be wrong but I doubt the Z has extra hardware for audio. According to the specs, the Z seems to share the audio technology of the X. But why then, when I select exactly the same options on both devices, do they not sound alike? It'll be down to preference but for me the X is the winner by some margin.
Video quality. The X is a purpose built MP3 player. It was built with the ability to play video but alas - it is too small. The Z to me is the opposite, it's a very good video player with the ability to play MP3's.Read more ›
I originally purchased a Ipod Touch 5th gen, I wasn't that impressed with it to be honest considering its £250, I sent it back after I listened to the Sony one in action.
I haven't tried the included earphones as I've been using my own (XBA 4 and XB41EX).
The only downside to this really is the battery life, its not great but I wouldn't say its Poor either considering it does have a nice big high quality screen. I think I got about 8-10 hours of music out of it, that includes a little browsing (wifi and bluetooth usage).
Overall its a bargain imo, you simply can't go wrong, it's only 16GB (you will never get the full amount on any player) The i pod touch only had 28gb usable out of 32GB.
