4 out of 5 eggsKinda confusing

Pros: I guess it works

Cons: kinda confused on how the memory works, keeps telling me there is no more room when there is nothing. I tried to mess with it and do some recording, seem to work at first but then started to get confusing with where things go and how its saed or deleted , IDK i gave up its not mine anyways so idk care.

Other Thoughts: I didnt buy it for myself so I dont really know what is wrong with it or how it works but they guy i bought it for doesnt bother me about its functions so i guess its fine for him
