Some songs skipped even if you are a premium user.
Con Doesn't pay artists enough
Deezer pays artists significantly less than other similar services. As of March 2018 it was paying $0.0064 / play, less than Apple Music and Google Play, half as much as Tidal ($0.0125). Not as bad as Spotify or Pandora, but could certainly do better.
Con A lot of songs are cut at the end
Many songs are not played until final chords, and many others are of very low quality records, showing audio distortions. This is frustrating.
