Default Why is the X7 the same price as a J3 with 32GB ?

Much more GB and playtime than the J3 but still about the same price , what am I missing ?

Easy answer: The X7 uses hard drive storage, which is a cheaper alternative than flash storage, which the J3 uses. Also, the X7 uses a resistive screen vs the capacitive screen of the J3.

Doesn't HD consumes more power than flash storage and still more than 100 audio hours ?

The X7 has a bigger battery, hence longer playtime.

If you see the two players side by side, it's easy to see how much bigger the battery could be.
