Alright, so Sandisk has acknowledged the lag problem present on the Fuze+ already.
But here is the remaining problem I did not get any feedback on; the locking function. I tried to contact Sandisk’s support, and they refuse to give me any information concerning firmware updates concerning the locking function. The main problem I have with it is that it constantly unlocks itself, whether it is in your pockets, or in your hands unless you hold it in a certain way. That is incredibly annoying. And when you want to lock/unlock it yourself, it is a pain to do so compared to tons of other devices on the market. Have to press some tactile button for 3 seconds to lock it, and press the tactile pad, then swipe up to unlock. Doing this manually every time you want to lock the device(And you HAVE to lock it, because otherwise it will accidentally change tracks, oops!) gets annoying, very fast.
I’m not going to deal with problems related to basic MP3 functions for months because I decided to buy a Sandisk product. I bought the Fuze+ two days ago because of its capability to extend its memory and integrate it properly in the library(And it works great, thumbs up on that), and because the Sansa Clip’s screen is too small for the number of albums I have. I went back to listening to music on my older MP3 player because the lock function frustrates me so badly on the Fuze+.
Without further ado, I already put back the Fuze+ in its package, and I’m going to get a full refund in about a week or two if I don’t get any feedback from Sandisk concerning the issue(As in, a confirmation that they’re working on changing the lock function). It’s a great MP3 player, and it’s a shame that I have to bring it back because basic functions were so poorly implemented.
