I actually got exactly the same battery life on my clip+, which seems wrong. I'm going to do some more tests and probably a historical comparison.

I'm not sure about the lower voltage. My...

I don't really see much point in SD, its probably on its way out now that 90% of devices are microsd. The bigger problem with the zip is the tiny screen.

Do you have a clip+ to test with? I'd be interested in the relative difference there.

Mine is also charging, but I don't have a baseline to compare with so it'll take me a few days to get numbers.

I committed the safer 2 patches which just disable more unused hardware. On the clip zip they increase battery life by one third. On the plus the impact hasn't been tested but may be nearly as big.

Sounds like you want a smartphone rather than a dedicated MP3 player.

The Moto G (2014) + 64 GB sd card is about $200 off contract.

Maybe I was unclear above but you can't fix a short circuit by installing software. You must break that DC loop, either with an isolator ($10 on amazon) or by not plugging in the USB cable.

Rockbox isn't limited to 48k/16. The actual DSP engine runs in 32 bit precision. We just don't have any real 24 bit hardware to run on, so all current devices output 16 bit. But if you had a...

Windows Phone devices run on the same chips as Android, so there shouldn't be any difference unless the phone is volume capped or something weird like that.
