Compared to smartphones, MP3 players are smaller, lighter, cheaper and have longer battery life. So many people still use their MP3 player to listen to songs although they have smartphones with built-in music player. However, MP3 players users can’t listen to music from music streaming services like Spotify. Many people suggest an MP3 player for Spotify but currently there is no news on that.
