Default Samsung P3 or Zune HD??

Hey y'all!

At the moment I have the Samsung p3, which I love, but I want more space. ( I have the 8 GB version now)

But I don't know whether I should go for the 32 GB p3 or the 32 GB Zune HD. Which one do y'all think is better?

Things I loved at the p3 are;

- Sound Quality
- Video Quality
- The way the screen responds
- Strong exterior

Things I didnt like so much are:

- Poor software

I hope some of you can give me advice!

well, I know this isn't exactly what you wanted to know, but I must say that if you are in fact using emodio (aka, the poor software you speak of) then stop. its really bad. just drag and drop.

anyway, the advantage of the zHD is the apps and WiFi. the UI is also a ton better.
so if you like apps, WiFi and a really awesome UI, then go for the zHD.
but if you just like good quality music and videos, then stick with the P3

hope this helps

Thank you very much for your answer!

I don't use emodio anymore. ( only to convert video files) I now use Windows Media Player. ( which I think is OK, but not perfect)

Anyways: isn't the video quality of the zHD better than the P3's? (bigger screen, OLED)

The soundquality: The zHD's SQ is ok right? I love the P3's, I'm now using creative EP630's, will I notice a big difference?

Indeed I like the extra features the zHD offers, and I think the design of both UI and the hardware looks better. Sucks you can't use youtube, though, I hope they'll fix that with an update.

Thanks again for your answer!

You don't need software with the P3 - just drag & drop.

Why anyone would want a Zune eludes me - crippled, proprietary junk.. whose software you don't have any choice about.

don't just toll the man, tell him why

anyway, my brother has the zune 4, and I don't fine the zune software to be really bad at all. yes, its a bit inconvenient to have to use that software, but its not the end of the world for somebody like my brother. [I, as a mac (and soon to be linux) user, appreciate not needing special software.]

You will probably notice a difference in quality. It's all about what you value more. Sound quality? P3. UI and apps? Zune.

My personal choice would be the P3, since sound quality is the top priority for me.

How the heck can people like the Zune HD's UI more? I LOVE the P3's UI!

Anyway, I'm sort of biased as I only have a P3, so...

I would go for a zune. Much less laggy interface, microsoft will still have many many many more updates for the zune HD also, and it has apps, and decent sound quality. Sure the sound quality may not be as good as the P3 but its still up there. But then you have the P3 which may have sound & video quality, but a company that just pretty much called it good and there wont be anymore updates for the P3, and it has a rather laggy interface. Honestly, after samsung stopped releasing updates and was more focused on another 2 mp3 players they had released i regret buying it.

I think the argument of which is better is down to why you are using it. DragonBottles said, what is it being used for? The sound on the P3 is really good and I like it. The one thing that Regicidal brings up though about no more updates on the P3 is something to consider too. Basically all of P3 people are frozen with the version we have which is a shame. I'm sure some marketing person has come up with the reason but I have no idea why. Anyway, think about why your getting it. For me, I want a MP3 that I can use for music. I don't do games and only an occasional movie.
