Samsung YP-Q1 (16GB)

 

Samsung's YP-Q1 is a flash-based portable media player that has plenty of features at a fair price. Unfortunately, it suffers from an occasionally lag...

Stylish, intuitive menu, produces good sound, good screen

No drag-and-drop functionality, menu lags in certain folders, fingerprint magnet

The Samsung YP-Q1 (16GB) is an attractive and well-performing device that lacks the versatility needed to compete with the similarly priced iPod nano.

Good-looking, great-sounding Nano contender

Sleek design ; FM radio ; BBC iPlayer compatibility

Buttons too responsive ; Plain music portal ; Earphones are cheap, not cheerful

An appealing Apple alternative?

The YP-Q1 is a comprehensive offering from Samsung with all the main bases covered. Happily the most important area - audio quality - does not disappoint. Control can be a little fiddly but you do get used to it and there are some problems with video...

Samsung YP-Q1 Diamond

 

Is the YP-Q1 Diamond Samsung's finest media player yet?

On top of this, you can customize the UI using Samsung's EmoDio software, as well as convert video and audio files to supported formats and - somewhat bizarrely - transform text files into spoken word MP3. Browsing for music is a little dull for anyone...

Samsung YP-Q1 Diamond review

 

This could be the best Samsung MP3 player to date. Not only is it remarkably affordable at £99 for 16GB, but support for lossless FLAC audio, BBC iPlayer, FM radio, drag and drop file management and a cracking little screen, means it's going on our...

Design ; Screen quality ; FLAC support ; BBC iPlayer support

No gapless playback ; Control pad too sensitive ; No WAV or AAC support ; No Bluetooth

If you want a bigger screen and don't mind sacrificing a few features, check out the Samsung YP-P2. You'll get a fully touch-controlled system and stereo Bluetooth, and BBC iPlayer content is also supported

A score-draw snatched from the jaws of victory, thanks to the exasperating interface

Bright screen ; impressive and flexible specification ; punchy, energetic sound

Easily fouled controls are infuriating. How did they make it into production

Expert review by:

Samsung YP-Q1

 

The latest MP3 player from Samsung looks great, comes with a lot of features, and can play audio, video, picture, and text files without any problems. But if you have issues with touch-sensitive keys, then this player may not be your cup of tea.

Audio upscaling function; Good audio output; Built-in FM Tuner; Subway Maps; Easy to use Emodio software

Overly-sensitive touch keys; Slow interface

Compact size easy to cart along

The included software MUST be registered before you can use the routing features. Which of course it's useless without ; Now comes the BIG problem, the site to register it has been down all week. The software manufacturer says contact samsung, samsung...
