I was looking for an Mp3 so as not to rely on my phone to carry the burden of my music library. This mini Mp3 is tiny and fits neatly in the palm of your hand. It feels sturdy and durable with it's metal casing and the mini screen is a nice touch. It easily paired with the Bluetooth in my car as well as the AUX and USB. I prefer to use the USB connection as the song title/artist info comes up on the car stereo display and is easy to see and keep track of what is playing. I like that it has a headphone jack and also a small speaker. It holds loads of songs, I'll probably struggle to fill it. I've yet to upload ebooks but I will definitely like to use that feature in the future - to save my phone. I'm still trying to work out how to create individual folders for full albums and bespoke playlists so everything is all lumped together presently until I can figure that out, I'm only mildly tech savvy so it isn't as logical/intuitive as I need it to be. The only issue I've had with it is that the cable it came with won't sit flush inside the player to charge or run it from the USB outlet in the car. I've had to dig out some old cables to try with it - I tried about 8 cables, most of which wouldn't sit flush inside. In the end one of my old, white, Samsung phone cables worked but I would prefer the black cable that comes with it to do its job. I've emailed Berennis about this and am yet to receive a response. All in all, I'm pretty happy with the player and what I want to use it for.
