Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0 review
6 January 2012
Summary: Samsung's Galaxy Player 4.0 and 5.0 are the Android answer to Apple's iPod Touch, which has long been the king of portable media players. Of the two, the Galaxy Player 5.0 is a particularly attractive device for anyone who wishes to remain within the realm of Android for music, video and apps, but who doesn't want to pay for monthly services with an Android phone.
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0 is like a decent smartphone for anyone that doesn’t want to be saddled with a data plan. Or to put it another way, it’s like an iPod touch for anyone that’s not interested in buying an Apple product. It’s the PDA evolved.
While there have been other Android devices that have attempted to fill this niche, the Galaxy Player 4.0 and 5.0 are the first devices to do it
The Galaxy Player 5.0 isn’t a perfect device.
Summary: Unless they really want the larger 5-inch screen, platform-agnostic users will probably not find enough reasons to pay $70 more for the Galaxy Player 5.0 than they would for the iPod touch, which has more apps, a more colorful screen, and a better camera. Android fans might prefer the more colorful screen on the Galaxy Player 4.0, but those looking to get the full Gingerbread experience on a media player/tiny tablet with a slightly larger display will love the Galaxy...
Conclusion: This review is just one part of a series we're doing on this device as part of our new initiative to give you a better look at the value of a reviewed product as compared to its competition. The devices we'll be looking at have been listed in this review earlier, those being the Samsung Galaxy S II, the Samsung Stratosphere, the Apple iPod Touch , and of course the Galaxy Note .
Samsung Galaxy Player 50 Android Media Player Review
4 May 2011
Excerpt: You know how you have a choice of 3 different iOS device sizes/types? There’s the iPad , the iPhone and the iPod touch. Now you have that same choice when it comes to Android devices. Samsung has the Galaxy Tab tablet, a huge selection of Galaxy smartphones and now they have the Galaxy Player 50 for those of you that want a pocket device but don’t want to pay for another monthly data plan. Let’s take a look.
Pros: No data plan required, Small
Cons: Display is small, Slightly sluggish, Disappointing camera, Can't use internal memory for apps
Conclusion: We’ve highlighted in our brief review some of the features and drawbacks to the Samsung Galaxy Player 50, many of which are hardware associated but some also software related but as a day to day music player, it should suffice. Putting all this into perspective though, if we’re honest, we would pay £30 more for the same capacity iPod Touch for an overall more engaging and satisfying experience.
Pros: Lightweight, Removable battery with external memory, supporting up to 32GB, Easy to use music player, ‘iTunes-free’, just control your music content by dragging and dropping
Cons: Low quality build, Poor display resolution, Runs an outdated Android 2.1, Limited hardware performance means you’ll struggle to find any games enjoyable, Unimpressive camera, lacks flash
Excerpt: Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0 seamana destul de mult cu un smartphone, insa ii lipseste modulul GSM. El are un ecran mare, cu o rezolutie WVGA si ruleaza Android 2.2. Toate aceste facilitati il transforma intr-un PMP destul de capabil.
Summary: То, что данное устройство называется плеером, можно объяснить лишь тем, что понятие «КПК» постепенно исчезло из обихода. На самом деле это как раз карманный персональный компьютер, от
это устройство ушло далеко. По сути, и об этом мы не раз уже говорили, Galaxy Player 50 — урезанный телефон на базе Android. Телефон, по которому нельзя звонить.
