Default i9 vs i10

I have just bought the i9 and am expecting delivery this week. I chose this over the i10 primarily because it is smaller and lighter, however i soon discovered after purchasing the i10 is not that much more expensive.

The shop which i bought it from offer a 21 day full money back guarantee, so... anyone out there got both? Which do u prefer and why?

What pros and cons has the i9 and i10 got over each other, kgo!

Bruce

I've heard that the i10 has the same soundchip/sound quality as the S9, J3 etc. and I'm not sure the i9 has that. I don't think there's that much between the two, the interface on the i10 is likely slicker and the screen is doubtlessly better.

The i9 does indeed share the sound goodies with the S9 and J3.

I wouldn't have got the i9 simply because it's a 2009 player, but then I don't think I'd buy any Cowon, I prefer Samsung or Sansa.

Yeh i already have a clip+, clipzip, and fuze all rockboxed, but i wanted the lightest cowon player with all its sound goodies to compare.

So far the pros and cons are like this?

Weight: i9 wins, its almost twice as light than the i10
Screen Quality: i10 wins
Sound Quality: Draw
Storage: i10 (has 32gb flash whereas i9 maxes at 16gb?)
Microsd Storage: Draw they both have none.
UI: i10
Price: i9 is cheaper.

Feel free to contribute...
