Sony NWZ-F806 mini review (& F-series player reviews / impressions / discussion) - Page 49

post #721 of 1975
Thread Starter 

Yeah, not a 100% in favor of review for sure, but I did link to it on the first page a while back because it was a fair observation, and worth others' reading to form their opinion. She definitely concluded by saying that it offers stellar audio performance, which is why we are all enjoying it obviously. 

 

If anyone finds more reviews as time goes on, please post about them and I'll update the first post.

Is the F807 White supposed to be plastic? It definitely isn't metal. Has a glossy sparkling back rather than a black, matte back.

 

Also, probably nitpicking, but it seems to have come used. 47.7GB/55.8GB left w/ pre-loaded music files and such. Pre-loaded movies too. Not sure if it comes out of the factory that way, though wouldn't seem like it. No setup either.

 

Ordered through alexlow.

When I say not a good review I meant that the reviewer didn't really touch on a lot of things that seem important to me, but ... well. Yes, it's true. A Walkman in this day and era will not have very favorable views in light of how the iPod Touch has become the apparent complete everything-in-one.

To be honest, Sony needs to add front & back cameras.  By doing that, it will matchup with iPod Touch very very well.  The F thickness can be 1/4" thicker and it still be very portable.

It could be slimmer and pack more RAM and a much larger screen... But do I want it to be slimmer? No.

Do I want cameras on my music player? No.

I'd rather have physical control keys instead. That's much more important.

My point was if they add camera then their Andriod Walkman lines will not be lacking in features compared to iPod and people will pay more attention to Sony.  Yes, I would love the physical buttons too.

Couldn't hurt to add a haptic motor too...

 not to mention some people might compare it with android phones lol

Yup, in that case ...the reviews will continue to trash talk our walkman.  Is the F walkman to your liking?  How does it compares to your mighty DX100?  Love to hear more impression.

 don't think Alex's good service comes into the equation (he's saving Head-Fi'ers serious bucks) as every WM comes with pre-loaded stuff... takes about 2mins to delete it all.
