I want a smaller player like the Clips of old or the Agptek:
Why it's huge and bloated now is beyond me. There's no card slot and only bluetooth has been added (2yrs too late).
I want a card slot back. Even the lower tier Chinese brands can make a better clip knockoff and keep the card slot and add bluetooth.
I want the GUI to actually improve year after year. The Go List is extremely limited. I still can't save a go list as a real playlist, and I still can't edit it. The back button and rewind button have inconsistent actions when navigating.
How about the ability to plug it in to my phone so I can do direct transfers of music and playlists or create an app that allows it to do that through bluetooth. Even a newer company like Shanling has a company designing an app that can do that.
Stop cheaping out on the plastic. It looks like a kids toy now, yet it cost even more.
And how about not crippling the ability to make a simple playlist and transfer it to the Clip. Why must I jump through hoops in 2017 to put a playlist on my player? This is just dumb and shows an extremely poor effort on Sandisk's part showing they are completely out of touch with how to advance their line. Why people still buy these things is beyond me. And I made the mistake of doing just that in an emergency and completely regret it. It's getting returned as defective because the playlist thing is a glaring defect in my eyes. If you don't think so you drink way too much Kool Aid and an apologist for a company and product line completely out of touch with the customer base that still wants this type of player.

Shanling kind of does this with their players. You can connect via cable to your phone and transfer. And there is a developer who created an app that works via bluetooth to act as a mirror to the player and you can make playlists and such. Would be nice if the app also acted as a transfer device so I could transfer a playlist via bluetooth as well or add music. But the direct cable option is nice. Haven't tried it yet on my Shanling M1. Shame to see other companies doing things Sandisk had years to incorporate into their products to keep their players relevant. The Chinese off brands are improving and other companies that make hi res players with better DAC's are making better products as well. Sandisk remains stagnant and seems to be going backwards.

1. Accelerating fast-forward and rewind, where holding down the fast-forward or rewind button will speed up the fast-forward or rewind. The standard speed is fine for finding a place in a song or short clip. However, it takes too long to get through a 2-hour podcast!
Has this problem been solved?
