The ZEN line of portable media players has long been associated with the highest quality in audio playback, and the Creative ZEN Touch 2 continues to uphold this standard. But that's not all it offers.

Also, stay in touch with friends via email with high-speed Wireless LAN and listen to your favorite music all at the same time - even on the move.
With ZEN Touch 2 being the first ZEN to incorporate the Android 2.2 operating system, you can now download a wide range of apps and games from the Internet. It also supports auto-rotate and double-tap screen zoom features to make viewing photos and playing games even more fun.
Available in a choice of either 8GB or 16GB built-in storage capacities, the ZEN Touch 2 also comes with a microSD slot for storing even more entertainment!
For additional features such as GPS, Digital Compass and FM Radio, check out the ZEN Touch 2 (with GPS).
Download Android-compatible apps, games and even eBooks from the Internet. The Android 2.2 operating system also allows you to auto-rotate and double-tap zoom when enjoying your entertainment.
Navigate web pages and read eBooks in comfort with the intuitive 3.2” touchscreen display that responds to your every touch. The display also has a high color count for more precise color gradation, giving you compellingly lifelike images.
It's now easier to see your photos in both portrait and landscape modes. Rotate them any way you want with built-in automatic screen rotation feature. You can also download and play motion sensor games.
The built-in 2-megapixel camera lets you take photos and record videos. Flip through photos with an easy swipe on the touchscreen. You can also view your photos in a slideshow or, if you prefer, as thumbnails.

Only MediocreSep 07, 2011
This mp3 player has some major issues. I have had to reset it on numerous occasions, for reasons that have so far escaped my feeble grasp. Moreover, the battery life is inadequate, barely acceptable. Either they should have used a bigger battery, or they should work on power conserving.
The quality of the music is fine - no problems there. The large screen is nice to use, though the resistive touchscreen requires more force than I like. On the other hand, the capacitive touchscreens are too sensitive, so there's no pleasing me in that regard.
Another problem is that the device lost my playlists. Since creating the playlists is a bit awkward and time-consuming, this was a serious annoyance. It's not the end of the world, but it's one more reason why it only gets three stars.
With just a little bit more work, this could have been an excellent product. I feel, however, that it falls short, and that it wasn't really worth the price I paid for it.

Needs work but overall decent little deviceDec 28, 2012
Below I will list my pros/cons and my likes/dislikes
~ Great picture quality. Not superb but pretty great... DISPLAY RATING 4/5
~ Good external speaker. I like the speakers. Better than my Samsung Galaxy Nexus' speakers BY FAR. Not sure they are better than an iPhone 4S/5S but certainly comparable... EXTERNAL AUDIO RATING 4/5
~ I like the fact that apps are available from online downloads using .apk files. I have a love hate relationship with apps on this device (which I will explain later)... APPS RATING 3/5 (even hesitant for that but I am in a generous mood)
~ Bluetooth. Nuff' said. Not any issues. Whatsoever easy to connect (simple wizard = easy access widget)... BLUETOOTH/PAIRING RATING 5/5
~ Love the button placement... BUTTON EFICIENCY 5/5
~ Locks and freezes a bit more then what I would preffer. I have read some terrifying horror stories online about this device. Let me put your mind at ease and tell you it is not that bad... (Whether it is awful or just once every 2 days it still is a nuisence) Also for the record there is a reset button made for when the device locks up. It is locted under the rubber flap covering the micro-sd card slot. LOCKING ISSUE RATING: 2.5/5
~ The Battery life on this MP4 player is far from good. I probably get 4 hours tops. While connected with bluetooth/wifi and light use 2.5. Heavy use without wifi/bluetooth 2.5, etc,etc. OVERALL BATTERY RATING... 2/5
~ Resistive touch screen. Only one pressure point will be recognized. Not as durable as capacitive. Harder pressure required to trigger a reaction. Not as "smooth" as capacitive. Although for a resistive it is better then most... TOUCHSCREEN RATING 3/5
~ I can not download apps/music directly from th ZiiO Space Market. This is easily fixed by online .apk files = youtube-mp3.org. Just not as convenient as I would want it to be... APPS/MUSIC DOWNLOAD RATING 3/5
Overall I would recommend this product to a friend.

This is my third creative device.Jan 15, 2012
By NacHo De la Torre
I was having second thoughts about purchasing this item after I read the reviews, but after thinking about it and remembering the other 2 devices I decided to give it a try. I'm glad of that decision, It's been almost 3 months since I purchased this item and only has frozen once when I try to install an app made for a zio device. There are many free apps on the page loaded in the browser, I'm currently studying engineering and there is even a free graphing calculator, nothing to professional but it helps. The sound is great with the earphones it came with zen, Also on my 5.1 system. The internet it's faster than alot of new phones. The camera is as good as any other on a phone. The video is way better.
It only have one down side, depending on what are you doing the rotative screen can go very slowly or even get stuck.
There are 16 gb on the device, but 4.4 gb are occupied by the software, with the apps and the update, there are 5 gb occupied, wich leave 11 gb free for all you want, it still takes time to use 11 gb.
The thing is I can't help thinking that the 8 gb version only has 3.6 gb of free space, wich I think it's too reduced.

well worth the moneyMay 15, 2012
This MP3 player was defenty worth it. I really enjoy this MP3 player. You can play video and tv shows and what not. You can also get android. the only thing that i can think of that is not good is that it ocassionaly freezes but you just have to press a little button to unfreeze it. But all in all it was worth the money.

WASTENov 20, 2013
Was very disappointed with this product. I bought it as a gift for my teenage daughter, whom takes pride and care of all her belongs. The system started to freeze up after two weeks we were able to reboot, but then a week following that it would shut down out of nowhere. We tried to seek assistance with no real solution. Then system was unable to hold any charge at all. Not much of a gift as a waste of money.
