Samsung Galaxy Player 4.0 Review: Capable Music and Video Player Does Android Apps, Too


Samsung's Galaxy Player 4.0 and 5.0 are the Android answer to Apple's iPod Touch, the long-reigning king of portable media players. Of the two Samsung options, the highly portable Galaxy Player 4.0 ($200 as of January 4, 2012) should especially appeal...

Full access to Google's suite of apps ; Large display

Poor audio quality

The Galaxy Player 4.0 provides the best way to experience an Android phone, without the phone.

Samsung Galaxy Player 4.0


Apple users have the iPod touch, but what about Android fans? Where do they turn when looking for an app-running, connected media player -- basically a smartphone without the phone? Well, believe it or not, there are a few options out there (like the...

Expandable storage ; The customizability of Android

Cheap-feeling ; Sub-par sound ; Disappointing camera ; Poor value

The Galaxy Player is essentially an 18-month old cellphone with the phone removed and sub-par audio performance. Simply put: avoid it.

Samsung Galaxy Player 4.0


Editors' note: The majority of this review is repurposed from CNET's review of the Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0 , which offers a larger, 5-inch screen and many of the same features as the Galaxy Player 4.0.

The Samsung Galaxy Player 4.0 offers most of the capabilities of Samsung's popular Android smartphones, minus the phone and monthly fees.

Either a 7-inch tablet or an on-contract Android smartphone would be more useful and potentially less expensive. Parents should know there are no safeguards included to restrict access to age-inappropriate content.

Samsung delivers Android's answer to the iPod Touch at a time when you can spend less for Android's answer to the iPad.

Samsung Galaxy Player 4.0


The first real iPod touch competitor, the Samsung Galaxy Player 4.0 ($229.99 list, 8GB) gives you all the features of Google's popular Android OS, just without that annoying phone stuff. That means a quarter-million apps, a Web browser with Flash,...

Good-looking hardware. Solid battery life. Expandable memory. Runs 250,000 Android apps. Free integrated turn-by-turn navigation

Slow camera. Android's feature options aren't as clear as those in iOS

Aiming directly at the iPod touch, the Samsung Galaxy Player 4.0 gives you all the power and features of a popular Android phone, just without the phone.

Consumer review by:

"Galaxy Player 4.0 is excellent on all counts"


The review above (CNET 05 Dec 2011) was most likely written by someone so driven by gurus' mantras and hearsays, that he remained blind and deaf to reality when "testing" the device. That is, if he ever really made the alleged test...

The Galaxy Player 4.0 has stunning quality in audio, display, speed, reliability, convenience

NONE at all

Consumer review by:

"Very good MP3 Player"


If you want to fit in with the crowd get an iPod, if you want more options for the money choose the Samsung.

Lighter, faster, brighter, louder, cheaper ($180) than my iPod touch 4.

Few accessories

Consumer review by:



Cnet, worst review you have ever given! My cousin has a Galaxy 4.0 and she let me borrow it for a few days, I loved it, now I've got my own and its even more awesome with all the apps you can get. Seriously Cnet, you should delete this review and do a...

bigger screen than the Ipod touch, awesome screen, really easy to use, unbelievable sound, excellent battery life, can expand memory to 32gb

None, There are no Cons about the Galaxy player 4.0

Consumer review by:

"I had to put my iPod touch down."


Bottom line I have no idea what CNET was trying to do here. Its not a phone so the review was pointless. I don't want your personal opinions I want to know how good or bad the product is.

Fast download, takes very decent picture, takes good video,vibrant display, nice viewing size, video sound quality is good, expandable memory, missing a flash for the camera.

Sound quality for the mp3 player is not the best, Software for downloading is not the best and music player software could be better.

Consumer review by:

"Works great, Not Itunes oriented."


A must have for a advanced MP3 player at a decent price, with a reputable Company Samsung, A I touch without the I tunes,I also have the Galaxy Phone , you might ask why buy the player , well its a player with 4 x the battery life than the phone,...

Android, Not Apple, syncs with my Android phone, Lots of different music organization since it depends on what service, did I say not Apple, yes I have had an I touch since day one, now have 4th generation, bricked on update

White, not much I will write back when I figure one out.

Consumer review by:

"Better than my 4th Gen iPod Touch!"


I am not anti-Apple. I have an iPod Touch and an iPad 2. I bought one of these for each of my kids instead of an iPod because of the expandable memory, stereo speakers, and the fact they don't have to use iTunes. Once they got them I was so impressed,...

Expandable memory

None so far and we've had these for almost 2 months.
