Looking for a android media player that is compatible with spotify

Music Fan

I'm looking for a Android device that is about the size of a phone with a 4" screen that is not a phone. I'm posting here because my number one thing I want it for is spotify. Im having issues with my phone when It comes to media, but as a phone. So does anyone have any suggestions for a portable media player that is compatible with spotify?

I know you said "not a phone" but I use an old android deactivated phone as a media player.  It streams Spotify over wifi.  It also works  to download albums to the sd card and playback in offline mode.   I specifically didn't trade in my old phone so I could use it as a media player.  You can probably find an old android for cheap on ebay or craigslist.  Maybe not the answer you were looking for, but that's my thought.

There's really not a lot of choice out there. The two web-enabled sony walkmen probably fit the bill although I think I'd look at the ipod touch if I wanted a portable player.

I would definitely go for an iPod Touch if you have the money!

If you are buying one second hand though, make sure its at least a 4th generation one (which supports up to iOS 6) as the latest Spotify application for iOS is only supported on iOS 6 and 7.

I'm amazed we didn't trigger the profanity filter by mentioning iPods in the android section!
