Default Pros and Cons of the Vibez (after one day of usage)

This is what I think of the Trekstor Vibez after one day of fiddling around with it - feel free to correct me, or add to the list (positive or negative).

Pros:
  • Very good audio quality
  • 5-band parametric EQ
  • Gapless playback, crossfade, auto gain
  • Supports a large variety of audio codecs
  • MSC and MTP modes, works on any operating system
  • File/folder browsing and ID3 browsing
  • Line-in recording in CD quality, uncompressed WAV
  • User replaceable battery
  • Screen is visible in direct sunlight
  • Decent stock earbuds by Sennheiser
  • A variety of useful accessories available

Cons:
  • Scroll wheel can be awkward and imprecise to use
  • Front plate is a lint magnet, back plate is a scratch magnet
  • Slight hiss, even with higher impedance phones
  • Low output volume, doesn't work well with higher impedance phones
  • Auto gain is too aggressive, even when set to low
  • No sleep timer, no pan/balance
  • Only deletes files, leaves empty folders on the disk
  • Tiny low-res screen, microscopic fonts on some menu points
  • GUI can be sluggish at times
