All colours available at this price on Deal of the Day.
For prime members its £11.09 as is, non-prime members you must spend over £20 or pay postage.
I bought my dad one of these a few weeks ago and was really impressed for £15.
For £11.09 it is incredible.I have a sansa clip, and a semi expensive Sony mp3 player...bought the sansa for size and lightness (for gym etc), sony for 50 hours battery life and sound quality (long journeys etc). This ticks both boxes for my requirements. Yes build quality will not be as good but then its silly cheap!

LOssless + MP3 does not compute

​It supports flac and ape, which are both lossless.
Purchased one of these months ago for the gym. Really rate it for £15
My hearing is not that good so need something with a decent volume. I wonder if this goes loud?

I have 2 of these and the volume is very good
The Sansa Clip was mentioned - does this have a clip or anything like it?
Why is this hot? ???. Has no one heard of a smartphone & memory card. What next compact cameras. technology is supposed to be moving us forward not backwards. My music's on my smartphone may not be as good sound quality but it's about portability . I don't want to cart around several devices in my pocket. cold for me

Lots of people have heard of smartphones.
Lots of people also have different uses and opinions to you.

​I don't want something bulky in the gym and I don't want the distraction of a message. I go to work out and listen to music which this is perfect for doing so!
The battery on this is amazing too!

I like to go out dog walking without my phone, hence I have a sansa clip for that reason, for the walk into work I use my xperia phone. I also have a camera I use for days out with my kids, as it has a proper zoom. There are many of us who like to have a good phone for multifunction use, however separate products to do individual uses.
Your opinion is your own, but perhaps a little more thought?

Wow, thanks, I didn't have any opinions of my own, lol. Personally I don't want to ruin my battery on my phone for the sake of carrying a few grams of MP3 player, which frankly is almost certainly going to have better sound quality. Oh and did I mention an awful lot of phones don't even have a memory socket, like mine, so I'm not going to fill up the internal memory with MP3s just to save a tiny amount of weight.

My phone happily replaces a snap and shoot camera, because the camera is bulky an weighs a tonne, but there's little need to run the battery down listening to music, when for a few quid and 32g of weight I can avoid it. I personally use a Sansa Clip, which is excellent, but would never go back to using the phone.

does this have a clip?
Ordered, why? will plug into my car aux port for those long journeys

When they release a smartphone that is as compact as this, with a 70 hour battery life, 30x optical zoom, high quality CCD, and somehow still have a 5.5 inch screen, I'll agree with you.
FM radio via iPhone is not possible so cannot listen to local radio.

Therefore a good deal, cheers.

Forgetting the cheap as chips price for a moment, what is the sound quality like if playing lossless music through a decent pair of in-ear or headphones?

Thanks.

change the CPU then cause it is faulty.

You wouldn't want to use a 600 quid smart phone on the beach or at the side pool, also you try a touch screen when your hands are all greasy from suntan lotion.

​It supports flac and ape, which are both lossless.



More importantly, it supports OGG which is the best format, both for being free (as in financially and as in freedom - MP3 is NOT) and for quality to filesize ratio - If you have two files at the same bitrate, one in MP3, one in OGG, the OGG will be smaller.

Most manufacturers don't bother supporting OGG so this is good. I'm guessing there's no Rockbox support for this though so you'd be stuck with the manufacturer's OS.
Little knowledge is dangerous.Good for music,Hot.
Perfect for the beach, thanks! Voted Hot.
Wow, I actually bought this last week for running. It's working great so far so definitely hot from me. Much lighter than my phone too which makes running a bit less cumbersome!
Don't need one.........but ordered anyway..

​that appears to be correct now, just black, red, blue... I think more were available when I first looked though
Gosh, I bought some cheap tat mp3 player off eBay for the gym. But I'd looked at this before. May still buy this but I need to find something else to bump to £20.

Let me blow your mind... I carry my smartphone AND my iPod Classic with 256GB of storage in it... Every day.
And when I go on holiday I take my smartphone, my iPod AND a camera.

Unless you know this is expensive for what it is, e.g better price elsewhere, or you know that this particular model is not worth the price, then it's not reasonable to vote cold. The best thing would have been to not voted.
cheers, just what I was looking for to save my phone battery.
Does this support Amazon music? If not what standalone devices do (if any)?
Also wondering if I can download amazon prime music onto this. If so will buy. But having researched I have realised it isn't possible. But thanks for posting.

Just do a search on Amazon for pre-order. Find a game or something that is taking orders but available yet. Add it to the basket to take you over £20. Wait until later when the mp3 is dispatched then cancel the preordered item. You don't get charged for the preordered item until dispatched so very easy to do.

Because some people don't even have any phone at all apart from normal home phone and you can't walk for miles with that in your pocket the lead won't reach because my dads phone is not portable and not very smart. X)
does anyone know if this player is a high resolution music player(with built in DAC etc.) or just another mp3 player that can playback lossless music.
