Philips GoGear 5245 Review

 

This device has nothing very outstanding about it, and is not really worth the Rs 8,499 price tag.

Philips GoGear SA5245BT [Review]

 

Wireless entertainment with Bluetooth support

Slim design, large display, good audio quality, good quality supplied earphones, Bluetooth support

Only 4 GB memory, no memory expansion, slightly slow UI speed

Philips GoGear SA5245BT Media Player

 

A good-sounding media player with a large screen; can the GoGear give players from Apple and Sony a run for their money?

Large 2.8-inch screen, Good noise cancellation on the in-earphones, Good sound quality, Bluetooth (A2DP and file-transfer) support

Laggy interface, Average FM reception, Uninspiring video performance
