My 160GB iPod classic's hard drive has finally died, should I spend money on repairing it or getting something completely different? What's the best music player with decent storage?
In the same boat OP, except mine was in water.
got it in rice
it runs, but can't hold a charge for more than 10 min or so.
Why don't you people just use a smart phone?
My 16GB Xperia Z2 + 64GB SD card does me absolutely fine. My next phone will probably have 256GB of space though.
>that flash memory reliability
Speaking of smart phones. My M9 always has an irritating 1 second gap between the songs. I've tried different music apps that offer gapless songs but it never works.
Are all Android phones like this?
not only Android - my lumia 535 have the same gap, which makes me bat-shit insane, cause i used to gapless ipod track changing
I have no idea if iPhones have gapless track changes like the iPods but I'd assume they do. This is the one thing I hate about listening to music on smart phones. Ruins albums that have tracks that segue into one another.
Fair enough. I don't even have a smart phone (I have to travel in Central Asia a lot and haven't been to the US in years, so no point), so I know how that goes.
Get a Clip+, a 128GB or 256GB micro card, and then look into getting Rockbox firmware installed on it (it's easy).
Just buy this and put it in your phone
My personal choice is a smart phone with an SD card. I can cart around a huge chunk of my library and stream what isn't stored on the phone from Play Music or Spotify, and imo streaming capability is far better than more storage.
One thing to watch out for is the phone's audio quality. I'm still not sure if my One m8 was defective or something, but there was a massive sound quality upgrade when I moved up to an LG G4.
why the FUCK did apple stop making ipod classics
>all these people suggesting to use your phone
maybe I don't want to drain my phone by listening to music you savages. different devices for different purposes is way better.
>having a smartphone
>not only having a smartphone, but also using that smartphone as a music player
yeah why would you use a dedicated device with longer battery and better sound quality when you can just use your phone!
If someone were buying a nice camera would you tell them to "just use their phone"???
My iPod hard drive has some corrupted sectors or whatever and a high number of reallocs so I can only get my library up to the artists beginning with G onto it
Life is suffering, is there anything I can do?
>been fine for years, few scratches but whatever
>lend it to workmate for ~2 hours
>gives it back
>weirdass black lines across the screen
>they've now morphed into a big ass black circle right in the middle
Works fine otherwise though
My iPod Classic sadly passed away a month ago, i've been looking here and there for a new high-capacity MP3 player. Eventually I bought a 64gb Iphone 5 to use as an MP3 player (got it on Kijiji for $120)
What's the best bang-for-your-buck High-Cap MP3 Player on the market today? I'm interested in the Sony Walkman ZX2 or the Marshall London but i'm not willing to deck out $1000+ on an MP3 dollar, especially since the Canadian Dollar is tanking as of late. Any suggestions to help out a poor canadafag /mu/ms?
Samefag here, also interested in getting a used Ipod Classic but the prices for them are astronomical on Ebay/Amazon... I've also heard that there was a patch for iTunes that cut compatibility between your computer and the Ipod, is this true anons?
sony walkman nwz-a17 is what i've been using with a 128GB SD card.
Any of you guys have skins on your iPod? I was thinking about this one
>camera oriented phone.
I hate this. if I wanted to take good pictures I'd but an actual camera. I guess the same thing could be said about music players.
I also hate how smartphones are looking like a small tablet.
