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.
Excerpt: When I reviewed the Samsung YP-K5, although the product was innovative it didn’t really impress me with regard to its features. So I've been waiting to see what Samsung would come up with next in the same range of devices… and voila, here comes the YP-S5.

Conclusion: Throughout the month we have had the Samsung YP-S5 in our possession; it has impressed us again and again with its intuitive design and ability to play nearly any media type.

Pros: - Easy to use, - Sleek design, - Hide-away speakers, - Good sound quality, - Bluetooth integration
Cons: - Lack of a wall charger, - Uncomfortable headphones, - Storage size not expandable, - Long Start-up time
Conclusion: Basically, YP-S5 is not only a Mp3 player as it supports video streams also. You can take along and play your favourite movies wherever you wish. It includes a set of state of the art earphones, so you can get privacy when you want to. S5 has built-in Bluetooth reception so you can get rid of all those nasty wires. When connected to a set of standard Bluetooth headphones, you will wonder how you ever managed to use your old player without wireless sound.
