Walkman NWZ F886 officialy announced!! [192khz/24bits] - Page 42

How likely is Sony going provide firmware updates to bump this up to a newer Android version? I am using Android 4.4 on my phone and now the F887 seems old.

They did upgrade the Z from 2.3 to 4.0. They might as well offer a new flavor in the F too.

The F is running 4.1.1, I was hoping for something more current.

 

 

So I am organizing my music collection for my PMP. How do I tag a track with multiple artists? Lets say I have a track featuring both singers A and B. The android music player only displays singer A in the artist index or when playing that track.

Can I download the PowerAmp I had bought for my Z1070 to F-887 and ZX1?

You should be able to without any extra charge.

Spoke to Ross of Tuff-Luv (case makers) said the F887 leather case is due early next year, I shall be upgrading from the Sony one for sure.

Are the side hardware buttons mapped to the Android Music Player only?

 

I noticed an issue where if I power on my F887 for the first time and hit the PLAY button, it starts the music from Android Music Player. I installed another music player called JetAudio which I prefer. Only once JetAudio's widget has focus or launches at least once will the hardware buttons control JetAudio.

It is only supposed to work with the Sony app. You should consider yourself lucky that they even work with Jetaudio.

How about Neutron app?

Are the side hardware buttons mapped?

in any case the Studio effect on my A865 is put to a shame. they keep the names and the general ideas, but sony really improves a lot of things without telling us. that much is very obvious to me.

 

what should I do? I hate most of this dap:

android boot time

huge useless screen

not easy to use with only one hand

battery life

android UI not that great IMO

My F886 finally managed to arrive. Not gonna make a long review but I just wanna say I agree with the above. I really wish it wasn't android and it could be a bit smaller.

But the rest of the device is so good. Studio effect is indeed very usable. Plus, you can use the equalizer more freely (compared to old walkmans), it doesn't ruin other sounds when you raise or decrease some.

Hi again guys,

I've decided to get the F886 (the 32GB model) in the near future, however, I'm a bit concerned about the storage capacity.

So, how much usable storage is left available for users?

Thanks

I don't see it but does the F series have an accelerometer or proximity sensor?

It has accelerometer but no proximity sensor, it also has GPS and NFC.

Still no comparisons between the older F and Z yet apart of the one from NG :(  Guess everyone is more interested in the ZX1...

Vect, if I remember correct you have a case, how easy it is to use the buttons with it? They're ridiculously expensive but I drop my walkmans a lot, so gotta get one before I damage my F886 too :D
