I listen to audiobooks, where each file can run for longer times. I was wondering if anyone can suggest me an mp3 player which, when I stop listening a song mid-way and switch off the device, upon restarting, the player should start where I left off, and not from the beginning of the song.
Also, would you rather advise me to listen to audio using my smartphone rather than buying a new mp3 player (what are the pros and cons)?
Switch off, I don't think any of them save your spot since shutting it off fully wipes the temporary memory. If you already have a smart phone there is absolutely no need to get a separate MP3 player, you are just duplicating the devices.
