Spotify works fine on the Z2 (so far).

That's great ! Thanks. Izzi was kind enough to try it too and he told me that it seemed

to work perfectly, but since he doesn't have an account he didn't know about the playlists

sync etc...

 

I'm dying to test it by myself, i will tell about the compatibility of the spotify app with

the Z2 on the forum when i receive my device, regarding to sound quality i've already

heard it on phones and it sounded terrible, i hope it won't with the cowon...

Hi guys, I have an urgent question for those who have the Z2:

when i turn on my player (when there's still the Z2's logo), I've noticed that a sound like a "tick" cames from the speaker... does your player do the same thing? is it normal?

post #139 of 540

That's probably normal, when ALSA gets enabled in Android. My D3 and Archos 32 slightly click as well at starting up.

That happens on mine, it's very quiet though. I had to have it up to my ear to hear it.

hey guys i think there was a request for a size comparison earlier in the thread.  I dont know how useful this is anymore. The left is the Z2 the middle is the J3 and the right is the S9

I am trying to decide between a Z2 and a Samsung Galaxy Player 4.0. Any suggestions?

post #143 of 540
Lol I'm stuck between z2 and j3, I'm assuming the sound quality is the same? If otherwise please feel free to explain. Other than that portability is my major concern, I currently own an samsung galaxy s2 and it's pretty big and annoying to carry around when working out as one if my shorts is a bit dragged down by the weight and kind of uncomfortable. How does the Z2 feel being in a pocket for both shorts and jeans? And j3 as well.

Thanks!

im wondering is there a way to make it always stay on since when i connect it to the computer i can only have it set to a max of 30 min before it shuts off by itself.  Once the screen goes which is whatever i set it in the options the player disconnects itself from the computer until i turn it on again.  is there a way to correct this?

Settings > Applications > Developement > Stay Awake.

 

Screen will not turn off if the ac or usb cables are connected.

 

Strange that it disconnects on sleep, mine stays connected.

The cowon has a micro SD slot on top of the 32gb and given the price of 32gb Class 10 cards, a Z2 with 64gb of storage would still come in cheaper than the Sony...

If one is really counting their dollars, then they would  not bother with a class 10 32GB card, and just buy a class 4. There's no difference in playback ability, and the only way the extra speed of the class 10 comes into play is if you remove it from the DAP and use a dedicated card reader to load the card.

Hi everyone - I'm on the verge of buying either a SGP4.0 or a Z2. First I thought I was definitely going to buy a J3, but why not get a 4 INCH SAMSUNG ANDROID DEVICE for the same price? So I've narrowed it down to these two. But when I buy one of them, I don't want to look like a fool next to my sister, who just bought an Ipod Touch. So pretty much my budget is $200 or less.

So what I'm asking is: Where are you guys buying your Z2s from? How much are they? (I only need 8Gb) Is it really worth buying a Z2 over a SGP4.0 is its over $50 more? I want a Cowon, but there so %&#( expensive!

 

 

There will never be a time when I will find myself buying any 8 GB device for over $200. Thats absurd.
