Conclusion: We’ve said it before people and we’ll continue to say it again – well, that’s unless a future variant is outfitted with better hardware. On the outside, it’s fairly evident that the Samsung Galaxy Player 4.2 is a beefy looking dedicated media device, but inside, it doesn’t proudly see any love whatsoever as it sports the same set of hardware that’s used on the Galaxy Player 3.6 .
Pros: Good battery life, Better build quality
Cons: General choppy performance, Shoots muddy photos & videos
Conclusion: If I had to choose one Galaxy Player from the whole lineup released or announced thus far to work with, this would be it. The Galaxy Player 3.6 is just a bit too small to want to work with, and the Galaxy Player 5.0 is much too thick to want to have anything to do with. The only misgiving I've got with this particular model is the slightly less than stellar lighting in the buttons on the front of the device.
Summary: As an iPod Touch alternative, the Galaxy Player 4.0 has much to like, especially if you're already familiar with Android and have invested money in the ecosystem. The quality of audio played back through the stock Samsung music app is poor, but the Android advantage includes letting you choose third-party player options from Android Market.
Excerpt: With Apple dominating nearly 70 percent of the MP3 player market, there would seem to be little incentive for competitors to jump into the fray. But Samsung isn't likely to shrink from a challenge from Apple or anyone else, leaving no stone unturned as it tries to chip away at Cupertino's market share.
Excerpt: Samsung's Galaxy Player 4 and 5.0 are the Android answer to Apple’s iPod Touch , the long-reigning king of portable media players . Of the two Samsung options, the highly portable Galaxy Player 4 should especially appeal to people who wish to remain within the realm of Android for music, video, and apps, but don't want to pay for monthly service with an Android phone.
Excerpt: The numbers in the various Galaxy Player names refer to their diagonal screen size. Thus, the Galaxy Player 4.2 has a 4.2-inch display. Its bezel, especially on the sides, is very thin. Though the iPod touch has only a 3.5-inch screen, most new smartphones have screens slightly larger than 4 inches now; and Samsung's Galaxy Note boasts a 5.3-inch display.
Summary: Sollte man bereits ein voll ausgewachsenes Smartphone, wie beispielsweise ein Samsung Galaxy S2 sein Eigen nennen, dann sehen wir im Galaxy Player 4.2 keinen Mehrwert. Besitzt man ein Featurephone und will ab und an zu Hause bequem über ein kompaktes Gerät im Internet surfen, dann ist dieses Gerät zu empfehlen.
Summary: Samsung Galaxy Player 4.0 è un lettore multimediale portatile, equipaggiato con sistema operativo Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread, display Super Clear LCD touchscreen da 4 pollici, risoluzione 800x480 pixel, 8 GB di memoria interna, Bluetooth e WiFi
