Creative NEED to tidy their act up! This device does not come with a manual and their website is poor, it is just too much work. App availability is a real problem, the device can’t be register with the main app stores/markets and the Creative ZiiO Space only has ten (yes 10) apps listed for the Touch 2. Direct enquiries about the compatibility of other apps got me nowhere. As for the Creative help forums…. Well I have had the device for three weeks and I can’t do more than log in (I can’t even search the threads/posts).
Seriously, when compared to the Creative site and forum, using a Google/Bing search will be significantly more productive.
The devices operation is at best average and its sloooowww! Battery life is poor (especially if you use WIFI), video isn’t smooth (I have tried 3 player apps) and it crashes, particularly when trying to go online with the Firefox app (the preloaded browser is more stable).It isn’t that there is one huge problem with the device. It is just so average to below average with messy support that I’m left wondering why someone would fork out good money for the Touch 2 (I didn’t).
So, from me, the Zen Touch 2 gets 4.5 out of 10.
As so many have said. “Why would someone buy this”... It is like choosing to buy half of a low spec smart phone!
