Well, I’m about to order the 8GM Fuze because of it’s sound quality and expandability (microSDHC), but the Sansa Fuze seems to have one obvious shortcoming to me:
There is no way to jump to the next/previous album while playing a song (via buttons)
I also notice that (correct me if I’m wrong here) there is no way to show the songlist while playing a song?
Either one of these would help navigate the songs better, but especially the first one!
Apparently many of today’s media players don’t have a way for navigating through albums while playing, but for example my old and out-of-space (4GB) Sony nw-s706 (no longer in production) has a control wheel for navigating trough files OR albums and it’s incredibly convenient! You really don’t even have to look at the player at all while navigating through songs, when you can just jump song or album at a time. I wish there was some easy way in the Fuze to jump albums while playing.
ps. perhaps there could be a menu setting to change the effect of “press and hold” on rewind/forward buttons to change album , instead of fast forward?
In case somebody is wondering what kind of player I’m talking here: http://www.testfreaks.co.uk/mp3-players/sony-nw-s706f/
