Samsung Galaxy Player 3.6 Review: Good Price, Mediocre Quality

 

Available in two new sizes, the Samsung Galaxy Player is a Wi-Fi-connected Android media player that complements Samsung's popular Galaxy phone lineup--with the advantage that it doesn't require you to be tied to a phone contract or monthly data fees....

Inexpensive ; Expandable storage ; Full access to Google's apps

Thin audio quality ; Small, low-resolution screen isn't good for video

Samsung's Galaxy player 3.6 provides a lower-priced, Android-powered alternative to the iPod Touch, but its screen and audio quality come up short.

Samsung Galaxy Player 3.6

 

The logic behind Samsung's Galaxy Player 3.6 seems fairly straightforward. You take Samsung's tailored version of the Android 2.3 smartphone software, put it in a pocket-size device with a 3.6-inch screen, and you should have an appealing alternative...

The Samsung Galaxy Player 3.6 offers most of the capabilities of Samsung's popular Android smartphones, minus the phone and monthly fees

Screen quality is subpar and the camera is lackluster

The Galaxy Player 3.6 costs $50 less than the Apple iPod Touch, but it's easy to see where Samsung cut corners.

Samsung Galaxy Player 3.6

 

A budget smartphone without the phone, this low-cost media player should appeal to casual gamers and music listeners.

Inexpensive. Solidly built. Runs Android apps

Low-res screen

You're not actually saving much money by getting the Galaxy Player 3.6 instead of a smartphone. Looking only at prepaid no-contract Android phones, Virgin Mobile has the LG Optimus V (4 stars) for $129.99, MetroPCS has the HTC Wildfire S (3 stars) for...

Samsung Galaxy Player 3.6 Review

 

As the world finds itself in a frenzy looking for every smart product they can get their hands on, Samsung continues to move forward with a series of relatively low-cost media machines called Galaxy Players. Today we're taking a peek at the Samsung...

Is this device worth the cost? If you’ve not already got a similar device on hand – yes it certainly is. You can use this device essentially as a smartphone everywhere there’s a Wi-fi connection, and given Android’s ability to be hacked and modified...

Samsung Galaxy Player 3.6 review

 

It was just October of last year that Samsung released Galaxy Players 4.0 and 5.0 in the US, for $229 and $269, respectively. This week, the company released the Galaxy Player 3.6 — known outside the US as Galaxy S Wi-Fi 3.6 — to hit that sub-$150...

Full Google Play store ; Bluetooth handset is a neat trick ; Decent bundled earbuds ; Codec support

Low resolution ; Poor viewing angles ; Price still not competitive

This is not the iPod alternative you're looking for

Samsung Galaxy Player 3.6 Review

 

Love Android smartphones, but don't care for the cellular connectivity that normally accompanies them? Well, you're in luck, because the Samsung Galaxy Player 3.6 aims to provide the wealth of functionality found with Android, without costing a whole...

Good battery life ; Processor runs fine with most things

Boring design ; Low quality display ; Poor detail with its photos & videos

Here’s the deal. Even though the Samsung Galaxy Player 3.6 might seem like a valuable media player at $149.99, we’re a little hesitant about it because you can actually pick up some prepaid basic Android smartphones for around the same price. On top of...

Samsung Galaxy Player 3.6 Review

 

Samsung isn't content with dominating the world of Android smartphones and tablets: they want the nebulous portable media player market as well. And more power to them, since they seem to be the only ones who do want it. Their Galaxy Player series is...

If you want something that’s going to replace your high-powered Android smartphone minus a data connection, look elsewhere. If you’re looking for a cheap alternative to the latest iPod Touch, you’re not going to get the same high-res screen or...

"Cheap Android Device, Expensive Media Player"

 

Note: the Galaxy Player 4.2 is the best device in the Galaxy Player line. The Galaxy Player 5.0 (minitablet) comes next, but it's not as pretty as the 3.6 or the 4.2 and doesn't have a user-replaceable battery.

Cheap Android device (got one brand new for $140, including tax); costs less than an iPod nano

Not the best value as media player or as an
