Samsung YP-S5

 

When I reviewed the Samsung YP-K5, although the product was innovative it didn't really impress me with regard to its features. So I've been waiting to see what Samsung would come up with next in the same range of devices... and voila, here comes the...

The Bottomline I like the S5 – it’s a sleek little player to carry around. The external speaker may not be deafening, but it’s quite clear even at full volume. There’s no sound distortion, and the bass levels are decent. Teh battery life is superb and...

When the YP-K5 was released by Samsung in 2006, its unique built-in, slide-out speaker design was a real head turner. And though the device was bulky, it had strong battery life and even a pair of decent earbuds. The update, the new flash memorybased...

Well designed. Excellent graphics. Intuitive user interface. Quality EQ. Built-in speaker.

Touch-sensitive buttons are not responsive enough. Small screen for video. Mediocre file support.

With its slide-out speaker, the S5 is a nice alternative to hauling a dock or speaker set. Slick design and an intuitive interface are compelling, but the player's weak file support will likely disappoint.

Samsung S5 (2GB, black)

 

When Samsung came out with the K5 in 2006, we were stoked to see an MP3 player with an unusual design trait: a nifty built-in speaker that flipped out from behind the device and propped the player up for optimal listening. It helped, too, that the K5...

The Samsung S5 offers excellent sound quality and plenty of desirable features such as built-in Bluetooth, photo and video support, an FM radio, a voice recorder, and an alarm clock. The design is cool with a fun flip-out speaker for sharing tunes. The...

The Samsung S5 has a small screen and a proprietary USB connection, and it's pricier than most other flash MP3 players. The lack of tactile controls may turn off some users, and there are no dedicated volume buttons. Videos must be in Samsung's...

The Samsung S5 is an MP3 player with a fun interface and excellent sound quality; the screen is a bit small, but this player is still a great choice if you want to share your tunes at the drop of a dime.

Samsung maybe better known for their display products, but one cannot overlook their line of audio devices. The Samsung S5 is the latest to enter the Overclockers Online labs and we're excited to see how well it performs over its predecessors.

This article will provide a review of the Samsung S5 MP3 player. The S5 is Samsung's follow-up to the K5, which was revolutionary in its own right. Keep reading to learn how this model will improve upon its predecessor and whether or not you should buy...

All in all, the Samsung S5 Radio/MP3 player is a very powerful device for the avid MP3 listener. Unlike other MP3 players, it gives you the option to listen to music by yourself or with friends without needing any auxiliary connections. It also has...

Review: Samsung S5 (YP-S5)

 

Let's not waste another second overlooking it. Read on for my full review.

Although some of its features (e.g., video playback, datacasts) are superfluous to the point of overkill, the Samsung S5 digital audio player is a sweet and solid device with good sound quality, a unique design, usable slide-out speakers, and...

The S5 takes Samsung's touch-button, speaker-enabled K5 and slims it down. We like it, but what's with the mutant earphones?

Slimmer than the YP-K5 ; Can transfer files using Bluetooth ; Useful speaker applications such as alarm clock and speakerphone ; Snazzy animated interface

Screen is small and on the low-res side ; Still bulkier than your average flash MP3 player ; Touch controls won't suit everyone ; Odd mutant earphones

All up, the YP-S5 is a decent successor to the K5. As for whether the speaker is useful enough to justify the extra pocket bulk, we must say we were pleasantly surprised by its multiple applications. It transforms the player into an alarm clock and...

The S5 is an evolutionary upgrade to the K5 mini-boom-box

Stereo speaker clarity, Bluetooth support (for wireless headset, file transfer, and mobile hands-free connectivity), good sound quality

The white version looks bland, Low-resolution screen, a little expensive

Модель, задуманная как имиджевый ход компании и нишевый продукт, получила достойное продолжение. По последней моде аппарат похудел и получил в распоряжение Bluetooth и качественный дисплей.

"BETTER THAN IPOD CLASSIC! Unbelievable Sound & Style!"

 

This is simply a super, flash memeory, Mp3, LOADED with lots of extras! It's got it all in our opinion!

Bought this for my daughter, and now I'm considering getting one. THE SOUND IS UNBELIEVABLE, the style is compact and SUPER SLEEK, and it's so USER FRIENDLY. She had the ipod classic, which was slightly bulky, dirty appearance, and difficulties using

We find NO drawbacks... at this time. If we have to come up with something, I guess the sceen is a bit small, but the detailed and vibrant images/videos make it worth it.
