The SQ is fantastic, but the games are crappy flash games-they really suck. Go look in the Cowon S9 section of the forums, read, ask questions. I can guarantee a world of answers. The S9 is a fantastic audio and video player, one of the best. As for games, it really is bottom of the barrel.

I use a Clip+ with Rockbox and an S9. Overall, the S9 is a superior player, but I do also use my Clip+ a lot when I'm doing more active stuff like chores around the house, yardwork, or when I'm mountainbiking. The Clip+ is smaller and less bulky and can easily clip to a belt buckle. When I'm doing those activities, I don't want to bump my S9 or get it dirty. Really, having a Clip+ and an S9 is a great thing. Usually, one or the other will work well for whatever environment or other activity you're doing at the time.

They're both Korean Telecom standards. If the ports look the same, the charger will work.

Merged your threads. No need for them being all over the place.

You're on a Windows PC? Then it won't brick.

Even if it would brick, it can easily be recovered by TCCtool. No worries.

Yes, same SoC and DAC. Still a lot of difference between the two when using them.

I think I slightly prefer my S9 over my J3 so if your like me you arent missing out much. I like the way the S9 feels in my hand, the thickness and shape. It looks amazing. I much prefer the looks and feel of the S9 overall. Plus I prefer the button locations of the S9. I use a slip pouch on the go and having the controls at the top of the slip case means I can change tracks and volume without pulling it out.

J3 is better for the card, external speaker and flat back if you want to pair it with an amp. Most poo poo the external speaker. I love it, I like to go camping with my wife a lot and I find it very handy when going to sleep in the tent. We can both listen to music together. The speaker isnt much but its good enough for certain situations.

Interesting how different tastes can be.

I like everything about the J3 better than the S9 - the buttons (especially the power button instead of the slider, and the location and tactile response of the other buttons), the form factor, the interface, and so on.
