Samsung Yepp YP-P3JCB 8GB Portable Media / MP3 Player Review
6 September 2009
Summary: Electronics giant Samsung has just introduced a new 8GB touch screen sensitive video MP3 player called the Samsung YP-P3. As you might expect, it's practically bursting at the seams with features, chief amongst these being a large, bright 3-inch colour LED display that has a swanky new touch screen interface, the kind popularized by a certain competitor's iProduct.
Excerpt: A while back Samsung had launched their YP-P2 PMP with its touch screen capabilities and Bluetooth functionality. While it wasn’t much of a comparison to the iPod Touch, the additional features both players employed like Wi-Fi and Bluetooth was what made me a personal fan. Not particularly of either device, but of devices in general that offer something a little more than just video and music playback.
Excerpt: Samsung is the name that is world famous for the sound quality as well as for the technological developments. Samsung has always produced some of the novelty features that make the like of the people more and more enjoying and dashing. Here also in the latest introduced P3 model, Samsung has produced a magical moment by presenting the wonderful compact device with the classiest features that are capable of rocking the life of yours.
Excerpt: Rocking :The Samsung P3 is the unique example of the colour royality. It has got some of the unique colours available for the persuasion of the people. Touch screen is one of the prime features of the MP3 player and also it is enriched with the master features of Bluetooth connectivity, FM and also the facility of voice recorder is rocking. Shocking :The MP3 player is lacking the facility of Wi-Fi facility and also the podcast support is not working appropriately.

Conclusion: Packing a lot into a little space is always a noble quest for a manufacturer, but one that can lead to double-duty controls and secret handshakes to access it all. The touch interface and even the few hard buttons are not always as intuitive as I'd like, which is to say that practice makes perfect, and we might need to spend some time with the manual to sort it out, which some other players have never asked of me.
Pros: Solid video/music/photo compatibility and performance, Outstanding Bluetooth connectivity, with no firmware update needed, Incredible complement of both fun and practical "Widgets" (applications)
Cons: Controls and certain features can be a challenge to figure out, Paid music subscriptions not supported, a few minor file transfer glitches
Excerpt: Here is a look at two differ cases from I-Nique: the Tuff-Luv leather case and a standard silicon case. The first leather case is made of genuine leather that is nice and soft to the touch. All of the necessary ports and buttons are exposed and are easily accessible so you don’t ever have to remove the case in order to charge it or operate any of buttons.
Summary: If you’re a gamer this may interest you in some small way. You may not be able to play your favorite NFS, CoD or Mario Cart games on it, but Samsung has given you a few games of their own to have some downtime, while you’re waiting for that bus that’s always late or in a long bathroom line up. Games that are listed are as follows: Bubble Bang, Bubble Smile, World Car Puzzle, ALGGAARI, Omok2, Pow Wow, and Sudoku Champ.
Pros: Bluetooth compatible, Earphone free, Thin for pocket space, Easy sliding, A nice glossy finish look
Cons: Takes longer to charge, Shiny for picture taking, Always cleaning fingerprints off
Summary: Samsung has crafted a fine player in the YP-P3, which features a responsive (if kitschy) touchscreen interface, excellent use of Bluetooth, and strong format support. Even better, the P3’s price tag matches that of the iPod nano ($149 for 8GB, $199 for 16GB), a device with far less functionality. The lack of Wi-Fi, a Web browser, and a more robust library of apps will be a turnoff for some, but the P3 is a good choice for those whose primarily want media playback.
Pros: Affordable price, Excellent sound, Responsive touchscreen, Inventive use of Bluetooth,
Cons: Hokey interface, No Wi-Fi or Web browser, Headphone jack on bottom, Wireless phone conversations work only with certain handsets, ,
