Samsung YP-K3 review: Samsung YP-K3

 

Samsung YP-K3

The Samsung YP-K3 is very attractive and simple to use, and it's priced competitively. It also has intuitive menus, a speedy interface, and above-average sound quality.

You can't use the K3 with a Mac or for simple data storage. Touch-sensitive controls can be challenging to use. It has no on-device playlisting features and limited file-format support. Also, it has no video or recording features.

The Samsung YP-K3 may not be a Nano-killer, but it's definitely a solid choice for those who want a simple, sexy player that's not too hard on the wallet.

Samsung YP-K3 (2GB)

 

Our Samsung K3 preproduction unit holds up to scrutiny.

Tiny, lightweight, and attractive. Attractive graphics. Excellent FM reception. "Resume" option is useful for podcast listening.

No video capabilities. No voice or radio recorder. Smudgy surface. Player can't be used while charging. Buttons are a bit too easy to activate accidentally.

Samsung YP-K3 MP3 Player

 

I'll admit I've always been a loyal Samsung MP3 player user. I still use my YP-T7 very happily almost everyday. Even after playing with MP3 players from tons of other companies, both popular and unknown ones, I still personally love the look, feel and...

Overall, I think Samsung has a solid MP3 player on their hands with the K3. It's very thin profile allows it to be tucked away virtually anywhere. With a few different colours and memory size's available, it's guaranteed to hopefully find a niche in...

Samsung YP-K3 2GB MP3 Player

 

If you are looking for a lightweight MP3 player, Samsung's K3 2GB or 4GB player is worth your consideration. It weighs just 200g, includes a bright OLED screen and proves simple to use.

A recent report stated that teens no longer find a new car to be the best way to portray their personality, but instead the shift has moved towards their cell phones and other electronic gadgets. Cell phones, MP3 players and other fun electronics used...

Read on to find out if Samsung spoiled anything else about the ultra-thin player.

Bottom line? The K3 is more about form than function.

Samsung YP-K3J review

 

Stylish, sexy and easy to use

Looks great ; Simple operation

Quite pricey

A desirable and versatile MP3 player, but a little expensive for the storage you get

Samsung YP-K3J

 

Everything about this player oozes sex appeal. With its chrome-trimmed exterior and sharp display, it's perhaps (whisper it) more physically desirable than the iPod Nano. The controls are excellent and the interface is a joy to use.

Superbly versatile, Great value for money, Easy to use, Plenty of bass, Good excitement, Fine tonality, Looks great, Simple operation

Lacking in some musical involvement, Quite pricey

Samsung YP-K3

 

Slightly larger, but thinner, than the original iPod nano, Samung's YP-K3 enjoys the same ‘I want one' kudos. It's stylish and sleek, and its backlit screen is a thing of beauty. But further comparison with the nano is less flattering for the K3. We...

It looks cool and sounds sharp, but the Samsung K3 is hampered by it’s clumsy interface and poor screen for photos. And it’s not an iPod nano.
