On 25 Nov 09, Creative released a new firmware 01.10.04 for its touch screen, ZEN X-Fi2 mp3 player. We have just updated the firmware and these are our comments:
* Automatically rotates photos when you turn your player sideways.
Seems like sometimes, photo rotation is not always automatic or not sensitive enough. Sometimes, we need to tap on the screen to activate the photo rotation from landscape to portait or vice versa. But most of the times, it should work.
* Adds a Sudoku game under the Applications menu.
This definately spice up the ZEN X-Fi2, we welcome this new menu and hope to see more games added to it
* Updates your player with new colorful themes.
With this new colorful theme, the ZEN X-Fi2 does look more brillant and colorful. Great!
* Enhances the touch screen's responsiveness.
Can't feel that there was an improvement in the touch screen's responsiveness. It feel the same as the previous firmware.
* Ensures a "press and hold" behaviour for the Power button when you turn
on/off your player.
Some of us feels that the 'press and hold' is taking a bit too long than previous version. It took about 5 seconds before the ZEN X-Fi2 starts.
Overall, its a good firmware update, especially with the new Sudoku game and colorful theme. We recommend this update!
