I bought this model April 2013 and have used it extensively since.
Great sound quality.
Looks sleek and sexy.
You only actually have 12Gb because Android uses 4Gb!! Big con.
Database updating. Even when the database has not been changed! Super slow until it's done. Very annoying.
Included headphones are mediocre.
Battery life is mediocre. Don't leave Wifi on!! A real shame if you use Spotify or Last.FM
Annoying automatic volume drop every 10 hours or so. I'm not a kid!!! Very dangerous when driving as I have to fiddle about with it to get volume up again.
Finally, in retrospect, did I really need another Android device? No. Is the sound on my Motorola phone as good? Nearly.
If it had a micro SD slot all would be forgiven....
The review say nothing about other aspects of this device. Can you download and run Android apps? Does it have wireless internet? GPS/Compass? Is this the Android equivalent of an iPod Touch?
Re the audio, I have an Xperia P and can vouch for the sound quality - assuming it uses the same circuitry. The most detailed sound I've heard from any media player - including previous Sony players. The bundled ear-buds are slightly bass-heavy, but overall deliver a very good sound quality over a wide range of music styles from classical to heavy metal.

The Note 8.0 might have been a great tablet once, but now it looks outclassed and outdated
A classic example of style over substance. Given tweaks to the sound it could be far better, but that’s not to be for now
All style and little substance – the Pill isn’t talented enough to compete with more accomplished class rivals
