The clip sonic is a stylish mp3, its portable, easy to use and has a radio. For the price it is, you get what you need, a music player. It's great for playing music, the quality of the music comes out great, and I think its good for if you want to go on a run and are worried about dropping a more expensive device. Its small and can be put into your pocket which is a great convenience. However this is a basic device, it is far less complex and has hardly any features which you will get from an Ipod, It is good for the price though, and is a cheaper alternative. There is a 1.8 colour screen but I found it isn't very hard to see if you are in sunlight, that's why I suggest this device should be bought with the primary objective to listen to music only. You can puy photos and videos on it, and record voices, however the battery life is extremely poor, lasting only 5-6 hours. Not good for long journeys! So I think if you just want to listen to music then its great but if you want apps and camera's then you willl want something more hi-tech.
