Serious competition for Apple in the shape of the 'P2'
31 January 2012
Excerpt: "I have owned a Samsung 'YP-P2' in the past, the 2GB version. Although the capacity is reasonable I found the need to expand, and as I find using this particular MP3 player so much I decided to just upgrade to a higher capacity version of the same model. I use my 8GB Samsung YP-P2 most days at work, and so it is built to last as I have owned it for over a year now. The main competition for such an MP3 player comes from Apple, but I wanted something ...
Pros: Sleek design and simple navigation of the menus .
Excerpt: "I bought one of these around 2.5 years ago from play.com for around £79.99, considerably cheaper than the iPod. I bought it mainly for the soul destroying 25 mile trip to and from work. I wanted something that allowed me to listen to music / podcasts, watch videos as well as having bluetooth connectivity and a touchscreen; luckily this little device had all of those. There are no buttons on the front of the device just a very generous 3 inch touchscreen. ...
Summary: The Samsung YP P2 is full of features, including App SupportPacking a text reader, a calculator, a dictionary (Korean firmware only), Games, an Alarm, Voice Recorder, World Clock, Address Book and a Subway Route Map for 24 major cities across the globe, the YP P2 is more swiss army knife than your standard player. However there are shortcomings.
Pros: Crisp and Clear screen resolution (480 x 272) Responsive 16:9 Widescreen Touchscreen Intuitive Control DNSe EQ Settings Bluetooth Portable Looks Great App Support Sounds awesome Good build quality Included earphones are good Screen Protector included
Cons: Does have software bugs that need sorting out Could use some more music options Could use more apps Touchscreen can be inaccurate at times No expandable memory Limited Format Support Lacks Wi Fi
Summary: this had so much going for it, on paper. the screen size is really good and makes a compact yet big enough hand held player. controls are good too with dedicated volume controls. now the bad. if you only want to play music and can cope with the Emodio software, you'll love the great sound. if you want to watch videos, prepare to be really disappointed. it is TOO HARD to convert them. honest.
Pros: screen size is good
Cons: screen lags on videos, converting videos is a nightmare, uploading content is crap
Excerpt: "I would like to start by saying that this is the nearest thing to an ipod touch that actually works. I recently got one of these for christmas and i really am impressed. It really is a sleek looking thing and with most of the people that try to get close to almighty ipod fail. With this though things are quite different. Its not just sleek looking but does the business when using it aswell. When i first opened it on christmas day i was wondering wether ...
Pros: very stylish cool looking with amazing software and good quality sounds
Summary: Bought this player in Jan 08. Great features and sound quality. Love the touch screen & bluetooth headset no wires,fantastic sound.Software is easy to use & firmware updates available. Recommend this player if you want great sound and quality video playback.
Summary: Bought the 8gb in Dec 2007. Samsung has put together 5 sep firmware upgrades for free, all of them adding solid new feature sets. Unlike ipods, the sound quality is fantastic. I will admit that the touch interface is not as great as the Touch but the difference is not a deal breaker. Awesome player.
