Conclusion: With its slide-out speaker, the S5 is a nice alternative to hauling a dock or speaker set. Slick design and an intuitive interface are compelling, but the player's weak file support will likely disappoint.
Pros: Well designed. Excellent graphics. Intuitive user interface. Quality EQ. Built-in speaker.
Cons: Touch-sensitive buttons are not responsive enough. Small screen for video. Mediocre file support.

Cons: - Lack of a wall charger, - Uncomfortable headphones, - Storage size not expandable, - Long Start-up time
