Music & Audio Controls

The Cruz Tablet r103 (4 GB) has a very similar music control interface to its more-functional brother, the t301. Unlike the t301, the screen sensitivity issues make scrubbing through tracks or pausing at a precise moment extremely difficult at best.

As far as the interface on the screen goes, you'll find the normal play/pause, track skip, and management keys on the touchscreen. There are also volume buttons on the side, which allow you to alter the volume without trying to use the touchscreen, which is a tiny relief.

Music & Audio Battery Life

In our tests, the Cruz Tablet r103 (4 GB) lasted well over 24 hours straight playing audio, one of the extremely few bright spots with the r103. Its total projected audio playback time is 2 days, 2 hours, so if you want to take this unit with you to listen to music, it may not be a terrible option if this is all you ask of it.
