Sony NWZ-Z1000

 

First Look: Can Sony's 4.3in Android-based Walkman compete with the iPod touch?

Overall the phone - sorry, media player - feels rather light in the hands and lacks the premium quality of Apple's products, due to the plastic material used for the front and rear. Overall, however we liked the design which is rather attractive.

Sony Walkman NWZ-Z1060 Review

 

Reigniting the classic Walkman brand, the NWZ-Z1060 ticks both audio and video boxes

Swipe to skip features ; Strong inbuilt audio abilities ; Solid ; ergonomic styling

Lack of USB charging ; Rather pricey ; Speaker placement

Sony NWZ-Z1000 Walkman review

 

The Walkman brand marches on with the Android army

Neither a smartphone nor an iPod-beater, the Z1000 languishes in no man's land

Sony Walkman NWZ-Z1060 review

 

Sony's new Walkman is a chunky Android-based MP3 player with 32GB internal storage and a 4.3in QVGA (800x480) screen. It has similar battery life to most Android phones and managed to keep playing audio for 22 hours and video for almost six and a half...

The best Android MP3 player we've seen yet is, unfortunately, shockingly expensive

The Sony NWZ-Z1060 Walkman is an Android-based portable music player. It has a 4.3-inch TFT LED backlit display, 32GB storage, USB connectivity voice recording, an FM tuner and a 14-hour battery life. Compatible music formats include MP3, WMA, WMA...

The Sony NWZ-Z1060 is an impressive music player that delivers all the features and sound quality a music fan could want, but the price is just too high to make it worth recommending. Unless you really don't like iTunes, an iPod touch and all its apps...

Sony Walkman NWZ-Z1050

 

If you want a dedicated MP3 player, but can't bear to buy an iPod Touch, then this Android-powered Z-Series Walkman may be the go for you.

Sony NWZ-Z1060

 

Superb sound and display. Very easy to set up and navigate around. Superb bundled headphones. Wireless works well. As a dedicated music player, excellent.

Not immediately obvious how to create playlists. Battery life could be better.

Sony NWZ-Z1060

 

Sound quality, bluetooth range, large screen. MediaGo is a good music player/library with which to load your music to the Walkman

Limited battery life, plastic case prone to scratch easily, will not stream Spotify to other wireless players, main menu buttons are not backlit.
