Clip + or Clip Zip ?

Hello there, 

 

I was the lucky owner of a Sansa Clip + for the past two years, and I loved it, it went with me everywhere.

 

Unfortnuately, today it fell from my jacket lapel where it was clipped, somewhere between my flat and the train station, and I haven't been able to find it :'( 

 

So I'm online to buy a new one, and I've just discovered the existence of the Clip Zip.

 

I'm a bit torn, so I'm asking for advice.

 

I was really used to my Clip +, and I'm not really interested in any of the new features from the Clip Zip except the alphabetical navigation Smiley Sad 

I would LOVE alphabetical navigation. That was the only feature I missed when I switched form my Ipod to the Clip +. 

 

Is there any chance of said navigation being included in firmware update for the Clip + ?  

 

Is the battery life going to be as good on the Clip Zip even with the bigger screen ? 

 

Any words of advice would be great.

I don't think you'll see alphabetical navigation on the Clip+......it probably won't get many, if any, more firmware updates, either.

The battery life is pretty similar to me,from what I remember..... although I can't make a direct comparison because my Clip+ is two years old now.

I recommend getting another clip+.  It's a great little player, as you already know.  Smiley Happy

Re: Clip + or Clip Zip ?

The 2 players are, of course, very similar.  A few things to note:

 

--  Unlikely that the Clip+ will be getting firmware upgrades, as the Clip Zip has come out.

 

--  The Clip Zip what's playing screen currently lacks certain of the file info. shown on the Clip+ screen.

You could have sold it to Marvin.  Smiley Wink

 

I tried to trade-in my fuze (it's two years old) on Amazon, but it was rejected as "no audio".  I think that's a bogus reason.  It was returned to me and it works fine.  Smiley Indifferent  As least I didn't lose anything trying to trade it in.
