Summary: Isn't the best Android device, but for only 100 bucks it is in like new condition and it runs fair enough It just lags and gets stuck alot. Also, I can't play the games I am able to play on other android devices because its using gingerbread android and I can't update it.
Summary: Like many others I bought this Galaxy Player and converted it to a Wi-Fi phone. Galaxy Player + Google Voice + GrooveIP = this dad saving money! My 9 year old uses it easily and loves playing games, taking photos and videos, and texting friends.
Summary: I've been looking for an alternate media player that did the job of the Ipod but without the bloated software. I didn't want to spend a small fortune just to have an MP3 player with WIFI and descent storage option.
Pros: Nice 4.2" touch screen. Great sound. Takes 32G Micro SD for expanding memory which is something the Ipod doesn't do. Lots of free and paid apps on the Android market. It's not an Ipod so you don't need that junk software bloating your PC. Also, you can drag and drop media to this device through U...
Cons: Difficult to find accessories such as a case or protective screen. The Galaxy S II phone case fits fine but it's not designed for it and you have to cut out part of the case to fit headphones. Other vendors sell cases designed specifically for the Galaxy 4.2 both soft and hard shell. Could use a ...
Summary: A few glitches here and there, but not a deal breaker. A great alternative to ipod, if I knew this existed 4 years ago, never would've purchased an ipod. Superior versatility, don't need retarded iTunes, "drag and drop" works seamlessly, and expendable memory is simply the best.
Older Android Version, Extra Codecs and Offline Calendar to Compensate

Summary: The Samsung Galaxy Player 4.2 (GP4.2) only has Gingerbread (Android v2.3.6), but I don't find it lacking in that regard, because Samsung baked additional codecs (media coder/decoders) into the ROM.
Summary: Bought this to replace my ailing Zune HD player only to find out the Zune was just having hiccups per se. After opening package and holding it in hands it is a hefty piece of an "entertainment" device. I call it that as it does music as well as a whole lot more.
Excerpt: We have the white version, looks way better than the one here. The 3.5 spot is on the bottom which I like. The interface isn't GSII like but moves okay. All the basic functions are there, and third party apps work. The camera is weak, and more of a decoration on the back.
Summary: To be honest I was looking for a GPS unit and somehow stumbled onto this device. I decided to purchase the SGP 4.2 since the feature set made it a must have and it was very compact relative to anything available (minus the Garmin nuvi 3790). Once you get a fix with the GPS it works very well.
Pros: -IPS Display: looks very nice -Front and rear facing camera -Samsung Kies: You can connect the SGP 4.2 to your internal network and upload/download files to and from the device without any software. (USB connection is preferable for the fastest download and upload speeds) -Ability to view documen...
Cons: -I didn't purchase it from Newegg as it was sold out in hours of a temporary price drop. Thankfully the next day other sites followed suit and I got it elsewhere. -I'm not sure if it's my device but the left side (opposite of the power button) of the backplate doesn't lock properly. I had to file...
Summary: I wanted a touchscreen-enabled MP3 player with good battery life and without a phone. Bought it with a 32GB microSD card as the primary music/video storage. Works great as a music player and web browser. Many of the apps require a Samsung or Google account to function.
Pros: *Responsive interface * microSD and internal SD card show up as drive letters in Windows 7 for easy copying * Battery life is good as long as you reduce screen brightness
Cons: * Built in speakers are weak/tinny, but what do you expect? * Pricey (you can get a tablet for two hundred $, but those are hard to stick in your pocket). * Seems like all of the directions/maps applications get bugging you to login to your Google account in order to use them.
