Hello fellow sansa zip users,
Perhaps I brought this device too early cause there’s several bugs. Previously, I owned a 2x sansa clip and 4xsansa clip+. I love those devices never had a lot of problems. When I saw the release of clip zip, I pulled the trigger too early and didn’t do enough research.
Here’s my issue
- The album art is not showing at all (I read ABI and this forum and follow the 100 kb limitation and < 500x500) doesn’t show up. I used mediamonkey to tag it
- Random freezes (I have the latest firmware), it’s horrible sometimes the device won’t reset so I have to wait 5 minutes.
- Menu freezes (Music doesn’t stop playing) but I can’t browse songs or click anything.
- The battery life is unbareable. I woke up this morning at 8:00 to go to the gym and it’s current 11:00 3 hours I’m at 55%. I can’t get through the entire day like my sansa clip+ (rockbox’ed, even longer with regular firmware).
Aside from that, I love the color red! The two tone color is a turn off.
I’m using my old Clip+ to replace my sansa zip just because of all these issues. I mean color screen is nice addition but the sacrifices of too many other great bulletproof features from the old clip+
Thanks, any help would be appreciated I’m trying to return this device :)!
