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 review:


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 may appeal to casual gamers and music listeners.

Inexpensive. Solidly built. Runs Android apps.

Low-res screen.

Conclusions 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...

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...

This device is not an iPod touch competitor. Instead it’s Samsung’s effort to bring their user interface and media-controlling prowess to the non-mobile smart device world. You’ve got no mobile data, but the rest of the Android fun is all here – and at...

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...

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


Take a quick glance at Samsung's Galaxy Player 3.6 and you'd swear it was an Android phone. That's essentially what this device is--minus the phone part. The Player 3.6 lets you can access all sorts of Android apps via Wi-Fi and can even be used to...

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 Android device
