Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0 Review: A Mini Movie Theater in Your Pocket

 

Samsung's Galaxy Player 4.0 and 5.0 are the Android answer to Apple's iPod Touch, which has long been the king of portable media players. Of the two, the Galaxy Player 5.0 ($240 as of January 4, 2012) is a particularly attractive device for anyone who...

Large, roomy display ; Easy access to the MicroSD card slot ; Full access to the Android Market

Battery takes a long time to charge fully ; Poor audio quality

With access to the full Android Market, a colossal display, and expandable memory, the Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0 is a solid choice for anyone seeking an Android media player.

Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0 Review

 

With the absolute barrage of Samsung Android devices having been released this summer, fall, and on into the winter, you'd think that they'd just skip sending out the Galaxy Player 5.0 altogether - it being a device essentially released internationally...

Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0 review - Liliputing

 

Remember PDAs? Before smartphones became ubiquitous, personal digital assistants such as the Palm Pilot, Handspring Visor, and Dell Axim were all the rage (with geek and/or well-organized people, anyway). But a funny thing happened when smartphones...

Samsung Galaxy Player 50 Review

 

The Samsung Galaxy Player 50 is an iPod Touch competitor running Android. It is essentially a cute little Android phone, but without the phone functionality. This Galaxy WiFi portable media device (PMP) has most of Android's killer features as well as...

Cute design, offers access to Android Marketplace, Great sound quality

Way too pricey, low resolution display, sluggish performance

The Samsung Galaxy Player 50 is by all means an entry-level Android device that’s quite honestly unworthy of the Galaxy name. While it is a pretty good media device, and offers good expandability with Android’s marketplace, it has a lot of...

Take a peek at this series of ads or single ad with a Choose Your Own Adventure style twist, however you look at it. They start with a supposed CCTV view of a convenience/grocery store with a handful of people in it, just shopping – then WHAM! In comes...

Samsung Galaxy Player 50 review

 

The Samsung Galaxy Player 50 is an Android-based portable media player, offering up a healthy dose of connected magic and Android goodness, along with Samsung's trademark additions that have made the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S a popular media-savvy...

Gives you full Android suite of apps

Software buggy, expensive given the quality of the hardware, low res screen, crashed and restarted continually

Even giving the Samsung Galaxy Player 50 the benefit of the doubt when it comes to the software failures, the plastic build and low res screen just isn’t up to the mark for this type of device, representing an entry-level mobile device, rather than a...

Samsung Galaxy Player 50 review

 

Can Samsung and Android combine to best the iPod touch?

Good build quality ; Decent price for the specs

Operating system doesn't work ; Android Market doesn't work ; Forgets your info if you turn it off

An abject failure. A potentially good player is hidden behind some of the worst software issues we've ever seen.

Samsung Galaxy Player 50

 

Samsung's Galaxy Player 50 could have been a rival to the mighty iPod touch. Sadly, it's not.

Enjoying a small victory where possible, adding media on a MicroSD works, the Galaxy Player 50 scanning for files it can play and adding them to its media library. We'd have preferred the card slot to be accessible without needing to remove the case at...
