I want to replace the Fuze with something slightly better though still cheap, so it doesn't feel like money completely wasted. I was thinking of getting the 8 gig model - but the new Fuzes aren't rockbox compatible. This is a concern for me.
I did like the Fuze, though one feature I would have preferred would have been some kind of "virtual surround" feature or what have you. Some albums I listen to, like the Doors stuff, has terrible hard panning. I'd rather listen in mono, but ideally some way of controlling the mixing of the channels would be nice.
I was also considering getting a new smartphone, if there's any of those that are particularly good for mp3. I'd like something with Android on it, ideally, that supports flash. I don't really know much about phones though.
What should I get? I don't want to spend a lot of money. I notice the 4 gig Fuzes seem to go for next to nothing on eBay these days.
