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 review

 

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 Samsung Galaxy Player is the only real competitor to the iPod touch, and it makes a great alternative for folks who don't want to use their phone as a music player, and prefer Android to Apple.

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.

The standard Google apps are here as well. That means the Galaxy Player has terrific Gmail and Google calendar support, along with free GPS voice-guided navigation, something that isn't available on the iPod touch.

Review: Samsung Galaxy S Wi-Fi Superb Stereo

 

The Samsung Galaxy S Wi-Fi is one of those devices that you cannot yet be sure what it is trying to be. This is because the Galaxy S Wi-Fi presents itself in a phone design (and I apologise if I slip-up and write phone in the review), it runs the...

Striking Design;Stereo Speakers;Screen Size

2.0 megapixel camera;Sluggish keyboard;Slow browsing

The Samsung Galaxy S Wi-Fi looks for all intent and purposes like a smartphone and does many, if not nearly all the things that a mobile phone could and would do. However, putting those things aside, what the Galaxy does do, it does particularly well....

Samsung Galaxy Player 4.0 review

 

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.

As an iPod Touch alternative, the Galaxy Player 4.0 has much to like, especially if you're already familiar with Android and have invested money in the ecosystem. The quality of audio played back through the stock Samsung music app is poor, but the...

This is WAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay bETTER than the Ipod touch.

 

Overall, it is a good product for parents who doesn't want kids to have a phone yet.

Just like an Android phone, fast, bigger and thicker than the ipod touch 4th gen, and it is has lots of applications, and specs.

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... Personally I own...

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

NONE at all

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. No more iTunes! Pay less and do what you want by purchasing through Amazon MP3. More music and movies. GPS, FM radio, VOIP phone, larger screen.

Few accessories No color choices

Its the BEST THING EVER!

 

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
