WATERPROOF ( the unwritten feature ) !
by Ashok Raja on 2014-08-11
its really a good product ! thumps up for super sound quality , battery life .. and the most important is..
once unknowingly my mom washed my clothes unaware of my mini dot2 in it ..
it was drowned for hours .. when i realized my mp3player was in my clothes .. i rushed to take it ..
it didnt work initially .. but i kept it under the sun for a while to dry it of...
whoa! guess what ... worked ....
and this was not the only time .. on a another day , me along with mu minidot2 got drenched in the rain ... yet it still continued to play.. perhaps philips can add a tag to this product that it waterproof ! kudos !
but the oly bad part is the headset provided is too bad ... u need a better headset to njy the real good music ..

I bought this as a cheap alternative to my iPod. And it is awesome! Except for the earphones which come with it, everything is fine. For those who say volume output is too low.. what's wrong with you guys? I use it with sennheiser cx 215 and the volume is infact very loud. And the random mode is quite easy to switch on/ off, and if you think it's difficult, i'm sorry, no one can help you.
For those who say we cannot skip 10 songs forward easily.. why do you want to do so? I only transfer the songs that i would listen to.. if you load all shitty songs and want to listen only to 1 no one can help you :)
Trust me , go for it.. It is perfect for working out and jogging (the clip is so strong..) and it looks tiny and awesome! and the battery is quite good.. It's been 3 days since I've bought it and I charged it only once. Buy these and buy a pair of earphones, and I promise you won't regret it :)
Average product - not very user friendly and won't recommend

I bought this as a cheap alternative to my Sony Walkman unwired series. Though most users are praises about this product, I am slightly disappointed that I got carried away seeing the positive reviews. Nonetheless it is a very average product and I won't buy any Philips product after a spat of mediocre experiences with their products.
Pros : -
1) It is easy to plug in and transfer songs by usb.
2) Is very compact and cute. That's about it.
3) Decent sound quality - good balance with bass and treble but poor volume output.
1) Though sound quality is good with Samsung in the ear ear phones, it is not loud enough in the max volume setup in my opinion. This is fine when listening indoors but volume output is too low for outdoors while walking or jogging and doesn't give the ideal kick while working out.
2) Lagging - Changing songs is very slow and sluggish. There is no way you can skip ten songs forward by clicking the button ten times - you have to hold it till you hear the beep, and this takes atleast 2 seconds and so it takes a while to change songs.
Activating the shuffle mode is also difficult, you have to click the center button twice - sometimes causing it to pause. The shuffle mode called Random mode by Philips is confusing and does not respond in a series. Sometimes it repeats the same song and there is no way possible to listen to a song that was heard previously in the list.
Overall build quality seems fine though I suspect if it can withstand moisture. It could have been a little cheaper at 800 rupees.
I would recommend this only if one would use indoors or would not care what song is being played while working out. For me changing songs quickly and volume ouptut is of utmost concern and this fails miserably. Thus I consider it as a loss and won't use it that frequently and Philips as a manufacturer has been disappointing a lot lately.
Flipkart service was satisfactory. Hats off to you for the prompt service. Would prefer if they sent me a text before delivering the product.
Price is little bit high.

I bought it @ 1279
There is an issue in this which is , if earphones are not plugged in mp3 and somehow the ON button is pressed the player keeps running which consumes all the battery.
Earphones provided with it are not good, they are not comfortable at all.
It is a bit irritating keep pressing the button to select the desired song.
In built FM is awesome 10/10 for it.
I am giving a rating of 3 coz of the earphones otherwise it would be 4.

Nifty little device, small and sturdy but unfortunately no lock button, keeps getting paused, specially during workouts,can't keep it in you pockets nor can you attach it to your hips (on your track pants), I keep it hooked on my tee shirt collar in front under my throat. Difficult to figure how to switch it on (I keep pressing all buttons randomly). Battery life is below average. Default headphones are useless and uncomfortable without ear buds. I use Skull candy/Belkin in-ear headphones and the music is decent and clear. this could have been 4 stars ONLY if it had a lock option. Hence I settle this with 2.5 tops.
Good for the price, but not more.

Don't expect everything with this small, fashionable player and you will be fine.
Its good to take with you on a jog, bicycle ride or to the Gym. The Buttons provide basic play and pause functionality and thats probably all you need when you are into some action.
However, if you want to hear to some great music and enjoy it immersively, this might disappoint. So, the bottom line is: Good for some exercise music, not so much for serious enjoyment.
Mindboggling MP3 player @ less price
by Bhaveshkumar Vasani on 2013-12-14
I've used SONY's MP3 player including usb stick as well as wearable which comes near 4K.
But, I've sold out both of them after using this Dot MP3 player
because Sound Effects from Bass Trouble are as same as sony provides on huge price.
So, don't be fear that you are going to buy this player at less price in compare of Sony's MP3 player.
I'm also a musician, I means I'm "Sangit Visharad" in Harmonium and I suggest you to buy this player if you want to listen your MUSIC with great effects on your ear

If you are looking for great music system then this product is not for you however its a decent product within this budget. Its best for using during daily travel time, jogging, etc.
Overall its a good product with standard music capabilities. The headphones provided are okay. Very handy and easy to use.
Great little on the go music player

These are your everyday mp3 players small, cheap (replaceable) lightweight albit a bit weak, its get the everyday music needs without discharging your cellphone battery or looping those earbuds from a safe pocket in your bag or jeans.
They are not speeced to be brilliant as their ohm range and audible frequency is clearly curtailed for mp3 @128 32Htz any better quality music won't matter on these but damn look at the price ;)
