Samsung is a highly respected manufacturer of DAPS and PMPs globally, but in India the company seems to have a rather quirky working mechanism. This sentiment is a tribute to the fact that we have extensive coverage of Samsung's foreign launches, but...

The video quality is good; even dark areas looked clear of any compression. Banding is a problem, true, but this can be ignored with a little effort. If you transfer WMV files without conversion, make sure it's 30 fps or clipping will wreck things for...

Samsung Samsung YP-P2

 

Samsung's YP-P2 multimedia player is the Whopper Jr. to the Apple iPod Touch's Whopper. The YP-P2 looks like a slightly smaller and skinnier version of Apple's flagship MP3 player; and like the Touch, it provides a touch screen for navigation.

Sharp and cinematic 16:9 screen ; Several customizable sound settings

Touch screen smudges easily

Equipped with Bluetooth and a 3-inch touch screen, the YP-P2 shines at video and top-notch, tweakable sound.

Featuring a crisp touchscreen, stereo Bluetooth, and excellent sound, this portable media player is a serious contender.

Excellent sound quality ; Large, colorful touchscreen ; Built-in stereo Bluetooth ; Compatible with CinemaNow for video content

Lag when opening large photos ; Screen smudges easily ; Not Mac compatible

Samsung has crafted a fine portable media player with the P2. The Bluetooth integration is top-notch, and the P2 offers very good audio and video playback. If you can live with 8GB of storage and can do without Wi-Fi, this is one multimedia device...

Samsung's new flagship portable media player, the P2, is sleek and svelte enough to catch the eye of potential iPhone or iPod Touch buyers. Sammy's touchscreen interface isn't nearly as sophisticated and fluid as Apple's, and the player's lack of WiFi...

Great audio and video quality; flexible sound enhancements; responsive touchscreen

Poor battery life with Bluetooth enabled; supports only Windows OS; lacks integrated WiFi

this is a truly awesome player, even without WiFi, thanks to top-notch sound, attractive styling, and an effective touchscreen.

Editors' note: The Samsung P2 underwent an extensive update via the release of several complementing pieces of firmware known as Blue Wave. The player was reevaluated once all the updates became available and the editors' rating was updated...

The Samsung P2 offers fantastic audio quality and a large, brilliant touch screen. The interface is fun and customizable, and the player is packed with features including video playback, a great FM radio, support for subscription music and Datacasts,...

The touch screen of the Samsung P2 is not always precise, and the lack of tactile controls may not appeal to all users. There's no memory expansion option, and it's pricey.

The Samsung YP-P2 is an excellent-sounding MP3 player that will appeal to those looking for a cool touch-screen interface and stereo Bluetooth capability.

How to Buy a Flash

 

When Samsung's P2 was announced a few months back, there was plenty of buzz over this thin, touch-screen-based player with Bluetooth 2.0 capabilities. Anyone who craved an iPhone sans phone wanted to check it out. In the interim, the iPod touch was...

Thin, slick design. High-resolution, 3-inch touch screen. Intuitive interface. Seven-band EQ. FM radio

Capacity tops out at 8GB. Full Bluetooth functionality not currently available. FM recorder not yet activated. Average file support ; Watch the Samsung P2 Video Review

The P2 has a beautiful 3-inch touch screen and an excellent interface, but until its Bluetooth capability is fully activated, the player's most alluring feature is missing.

Keeping up with our recent fascination with touchscreen devices, the Samsung YP-P2 gets rid of most of its physical controls in favor of a user interface that relies almost exclusively on its large touchscreen display. While it may not necessarily be...

The touch-screen interface named EmoTrue goes beyond just tapping the screen. Users can swipe a finger across the screen for functions like fast forward or next picture.
