This product has an overall good rating from me

By ashleyyy from Undisclosed on 12/07/2013


Pros:

Lightweight, Bright Display, Durable, Built-in Speakers, Inexpensive

Cons:

Not High Def, Poor Quality

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0 has nice features including front and back cameras, speakers, an awesome big screen, and touch buttons. The cameras don't have very good quality but for me the screen made up for it. I really love the big screen and it isn't too big and the product fits nicely in your hand. I have a problem that sometimes it just randomly restarts itself when i am in the middle of doing something, or glitches so I have to restart it. The touch buttons glitch sometimes and I have to keep touching them for anything to happen. Some games make it run really slow and freeze. I have had this for a year and the battery life is still really good, it takes a long time for it to run out of battery but I keep it at the lowest brightness but this is still pretty bright. I think it should go a little darker and also sometimes it randomly gets brighter and I have to go to Settings and change it. sometimes when i press the button to turn the screen on it doesn't turn on. I am someone who can deal with all the glitches and freezes but if you are not one of those people, you might want to reconsider getting this product, otherwise you might get frustrated a lot with it. I have dropped it multiple times on tile and on the road and it has never gotten a cracked screen and doesn't have any scratches either which i find impressive.

Good for a beginner/child's tablet

By Tympanistam from Undisclosed on 11/18/2013


Pros:

Inexpensive

Cons:

Crashes Often, Poor Quality, Not Powerful, Can't Keep Up With Above Average User, Did Not Meet Expectations

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This is an alright product given Samsung's track record. Samsung offers much better products than this one. I only say this because of the bottleneck in the Player. The RAM keeps this product from being a good product. If you run too many things on it (ie. music and a low graphical game), the system crashes one of the two because it overloads the RAM. The processor runs fairly well and it can run most graphically intensive apps (given enough time to load). But this is not a high end product by any means. If you're looking for a quality product, keep going down the line of samsung's lineup. They offer much better products than this one for a slightly higher price.

Slightly Misses the mark

By Anonymous from Wichita, KS on 10/05/2013


Pros:

Bright Display, Screen Size Just Right On The Too Large Threshold, Realistic Color, Built-in Speakers

Cons:

Way Too Little Ram, Apperntly Weak Usb Connection Port

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

For the most part, this player is acceptable. It actually would be a very good device had Samsung not dropped the ball so badly in a few critical areas. 1 - This is the MOST egregious: The amount of RAM is pitifully low. The device should have had at least twice as much if not 3x as much ram. This causes the device to run slow and even lock up. A really stupid and unforgivable design decision. 2 - Processor speed is only slightly underpowered. 20-40% more power would have been better. However, the processing power it has is sufficient if you do not want to play arcade games. 3 - There should have been an option to install apps onto the internal USB memory as well as the external. If you install too many apps onto the 2g of internal memory, you have no alternative but to move them to the external memory; huge design flaw. 4 - There seems to be a problem with the USB connection port. I have owned my Galaxy for a little less than a month and already, I have to wiggle the cord to get the thing to charge. This does not bode well. I fear that this type of problem will only worsen until it will not take a charge, thus rendering the thing useless. Because of the large screen, it uses a lot of energy and thus requires charging often if you are using it to watch video or have the screen on for extended periods. Not that the battery is insufficient really, just needs to be charged often and with a poorly built USB port that seems like it will wear out quickly, this will happen faster due to the increased charging frequency. All in all, it is kind of sad that they were not able to see these short falls before it went into production because had these simple issues been taken care of, this would have been an awesome player.

not to pleased

By Vegassurprise from vegas nv on 08/04/2013


Cons:

Poor Quality, Did Not Meet Expectations, Not High Def

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Purchased this for a xmas present. It has been used literally only twice since December 2012. Reason? Well, the slowness of the screen, takes to long to load apps, (which are only a few)(7) the sound quality isn't great at all. Even with headphones. I just pulled it out of the box the other day and charged it, and now it wont even come on. Has been charging all day. I even went to another outlet thinking maybe something happened to that outlet. Just very disappointed/ Didn't get the warranty from best buy but so I don't know if it could be fixed at all... :(

Did not even work for a year

By cawowyn from Miami on 07/19/2013


Cons:

Stopped Working In Less Than A Year

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Have had the Galaxy Player for 8 months and it has already stopped working. I like the features and how it handles but is a waste of money if it stops working in such a short time period.

DO NOT GET, SYSTEM FREEZES

By cupcake12166 from Undisclosed on 07/10/2013


Pros:

Right Size

Cons:

Did Not Meet Expectations, Bad System

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have had my player since November (about 8 months) and now it is frozen. It froze while I was browsing through my pictures and so I turned it off to restart it. Then I turned it back on however exactly 3 seconds later, I shut back down. I tried multiple times to try to turn it on but It never responded. I was able to get it into system recovery and I tried rebooting it but got no response. I REBOOTED ABOUT 100 TIMES, NO JOKE but it would just pull up a white screen and then show the "samsung" logo and then go back to recovery. I EVEN TRIED WIPING THE DATA AND GOING BACK TO FACTORY RESET BUT EVEN THAT DIDN'T DO ANYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!! Samsung definitely needs to fix their system and I am very disappointed with this product. I had many irreplaceable photos and videos on there and there is no way to get them back. My friend has also had many issues with the Samsung Galaxay sIII. I will NEVER reccommend this to anyone. apparently Best BUy has discontinued this product also because of it's horrible performance.

I initially wanted to buy an i pod touch but while I was waiting at the store I saw this big beautiful bundle of joy and decided that I wanted to buy the samsung galaxy player 5 and I don't regret my decision.

Really Good, but not perfect

By EpicSoldier567 from Undisclosed on 04/03/2013


Pros:

Built-in Speakers, Storage Is Expandable, Sd Card Compatible, Durable, Bright Display, Huge Screen, Extremely Loud Speakers, Fits In Pocket Perfectly, Inexpensive

Cons:

Can't Connect To Wii Remote, Some Apps Not Compatible, Lags, Wrist Strap In The Top Left Corner, A Little Heavy, Did Not Meet Expectations, Can't Update Operating System

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I chose this Player over an iPod touch 5th Gen. Yeah. Its good. First of all, this thing is about the most sturdy and durable device you will ever own. i accidentally dropped it from the banister in my house and it dropped 15 or so feet flat on the screen. but when I checked for damage i couldn't even find so much as a scratch. so if your clumsy, get this. another thing is the speakers. they are LOUD. i planned on getting a speaker system for my music but when I turned it too the full volume its just as loud and clear. the only downside to this feature is that the speakers are on the back, so you have to set it on it's screen for the full effect, but the screen is pretty much unscratchable so this isn't a problem. The screen is HUGE and despite what you might think this fits perfectly in any pocket. and just a note to samsung, if your going to put a wrist strap on the thing, don't put it on the top left corner. please. on to the software. i was kind of disappointed when i found out that i couldn't update my operating system to the latest version, so some apps on the google play store are not compatible with this device. sorry, but i was really sad when i couldn't download Tiny Tower onto my brand new Samsung Galaxy Player. also, this device lags quite a lot. But with a five inch screen, you pretty much have a pocket sized tablet thats great for watching Netflix and YouTube. Overall, this Product is Awesome and I would recommend it to anyone who is reading this. you. get this. Pros: huge screen pocketable loud speakers sd card compatible bright screen Cons: Can't update operating system Wrist strap is in the top left corner (Why???) Some apps not compatible

Greatest Android Player

By Jistropy from New York on 03/02/2013


Pros:

Bright Display, Durable, Lightweight, Built-in Speakers

This device is one of the most spectacular devices to be released for it's time. The battery life could go beyond a days worth of usage, and the speakers are loud and crisp. Android Gingerbread may be outdated, but is by far the most stable and user friendly that I've implemented with. As a developer, I recommend everyone to take advantage of what could be used with this device.

Happy with the product

By Stylus from Undisclosed on 01/13/2013


Pros:

Realistic Color, Built-in Speakers, Lightweight, Bright Display, Durable

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Generally, I'm happy with the Samsung 5. I received it as a Christmas gift. It took a while to get the wi-fi to work but now that it does I'm happy. It does suck battery life so I won't use it as much as I thought I might. I did turn off things to make the battery life longer and it seems to work. I like the sound quality and the fact that I can put both mp3s and waves on the mini sd card. I do wish I could download apps from the Web site and put them on the device instead of having to use wi-fi and download them. I installed Kies and except for the fact that I can back up material on to my computer I don't see myself using it much since I can't really do much with it. There is (and according to answers posted here there won't be) no upgrade to ICS or Jelly Bean and the device can't upgrade with Kies anyway so it's rather useless. I'll keep the software on my computer for a while to see if it's worthwhile. I do like the camera and the video. I used both tools on Christmas day and was very happy with the quality.

Good player but lacks in areas

By Beyontech from Waldo WI on 01/04/2013


Pros:

Built-in Speakers, Bright Display, Lightweight, Inexpensive

Cons:

Poor Camera

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Overall I am happy with the unit. I replaced a 5 year old HP IPAQ so the functionality is a HUGE step up. Connectivity with other devices is great. Application stores from both Google and Samsung are excellent. The 5" screen is AWSOME! The camera lacks quality, it takes a long time to get a blury picture. I have yet to figure out how to get a good shot of the kids that is worth putting up on FB. Uploading pics to FB is amazingly easy! The units has no "ALWAYS STAY ON" mode. So the GPS works for 10 minutes and then it shuts off. :(

Great Player

By DarenK from Utah on 01/04/2013


Pros:

Durable, Bright Display, Lightweight, Inexpensive, Built-in Speakers

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have used "other" MP3 players in the past from the two big names in computing etc. And now finally I have my hands on a Samsung player 5. Using Android, i must say I have been impressed with the battery life, screen size and ease of use of the Player 5 although it does run Honeycomb and with no update to ICS (Nor will there be), it is slightly slower on at times a little less responsive as my S3 or even my S2 Galaxy phones. I also look forward to the Galaxy Player 5.8 once it finally ships (There are already many reviews online and that device will run ICS and maybe even Jellybean). One of the many features is battery life, this is up there with the other "top" media players along with access to the Android market (However you may have to install the new Google Play store app manually if you get stuck with a "terms and conditions page"). I also like the whole range of file extensions it will play without having to install codecs. It will also run a 64Gb card if you know how to format it through your PC making it the best value for money player you can buy right now.

Samsung Galaxy Player

By techxpert from Undisclosed on 12/17/2012


Pros:

Lightweight, Built-in Speakers, Durable, Bright Display

Cons:

Poor Quality, Bad Processor, Did Not Meet Expectations, Not Enough Ram

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

At first I thought that the galaxy player 5.0 would be a good choice, because of the large screen. However it did not hold up to par. The processor is absolutely atrocious. At one gigahertz I thought it would hold up better, but the processor cannot run games at all. It was advertised as a gaming device, so I thought it would be much better.

Pros:

Realistic Color, Built-in Speakers, Bright Display, Inexpensive, Durable, Lightweight, Expandable Memory

Bottom Line:

I bought the Galaxy because you could add memory to it, unlike more expensive devices that you couldn't. It was primarily for music, but the more I used it the more I found it could do. I have yet to find anything it couldn't do! Because of my love for the galaxy, a friend of mine bought one and I bought one for a Christmas gift. You can't beat the price for what the Galaxy does.

The product disappointed me

Pros:

Cons:

Bottom Line:

This product, truly surprised me. I had the notion that it was a high-end media player like an iPod. I enjoyed the Micro SD slot, and I liked the dual cameras, but other than that I had nothing but problems with it. The start up takes forever, and sometimes, it's doesn't even turn on. The battery life is no where near what is said. Over-all, I was just truly disappointed.

Overall i am pleased and happy with my purchase.

Inexpensive, Built-in Speakers, Lightweight, Bright Display, Realistic Color, Durable

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

It does everything that I wanted it to do. I replaced my iPod Touch because it was difficult to sync and impossible to retrieve my music that came from my CDs. The Galaxy Player continually syncs my Google contacts and calendar with my computers. It syncs with Windows Media Center and you can drag and drop albums to the Galaxy.

Pros:

Lightweight, Durable

Cons:

Not Compatible With All Android Apps., Battery Life, Did Not Meet Expectations

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This was recommended as a small tablet to replace some obsolete systems I use at work. Unfortunately, Google calendar app won't work with it. The battery runs down within a few hours of use, even with sound and wi-fi turned off.

The best media player I ever owned

By CosmicDragon from Draconia on 10/21/2012


Pros:

Built In Wi-fi And Bluetooth, Durable, Inexpensive, Bright Display, Built-in Speakers, Ease Of Use, Lightweight

Cons:

8gb Internal Storage Instead Of 16gb

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This wonderful device is a genuine media player, NOT a phone. The built in speakers sound great. Wi-Fi and bluetooth connections work flawlessly. Even sounds great linked with external speakers via bluetooth or mini stereo cable. Being somewhat computer savvy, I decided to take a chance and try a 64GB MicroSD card in this player. I had to reformat the card using the player but once I loaded everything on it the player had no problem finding my music and video files. If your looking for a great phoneless media player then look no further. My only negative for this player is the 8GB internal storage. Media players should have a minimum of 16GB.

By Thisisawesome from Undisclosed on 10/18/2012


Pros:

Lightweight, Realistic Color, Bright Display, Built-in Speakers, Durable

Cons:

Not A Lot Of Options For Accessories

Did quite a bit of researching before picking up this guy. I was looking for an mp3 player that did a little (or a lot) more than just play music. Had it narrowed down to this or the new ipod touch 5. Sure the new ipod has some ups on this (better cameras, faster, more accessories, blah, blah, blah) but it also has an extra Benjamin on the price tag compared to the Galaxy. I've owned it for almost a month now, and use it quite literally every day. It's basically my smartphone that isn't really a phone. Helps me stay organized and on track with to-do's, connected with emails, facebook, etc; distracted with games and other apps; not lost with the gps. All in all it's a great buy. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a player that does it all.

LOVE IT...however

By Anonymous from Mayville, WI on 10/12/2012


Pros:

Realistic Color, Lightweight, Bright Display

Cons:

Did Not Meet Expectations

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love this Galaxy Player 5.0 however, to find a case that fits properly is quite difficult. A docking station...cant find. I bought this instead of the iPod, but there are sooo many accessories for the iPod and so few for the Galaxy Player. I dont want to take it with me anywhere because I am afraid of breaking or scratching it. I am quite disappointed in the lack of protection. It is almost like Samsung says: comparable to the iPod, better than the iPod, but just break it and buy a new one. I paid enough money for it and would like to protect it and keep it for as long as possible. Cant even find accessories on the Samsung website. Also the speakers are not the greatest. But if you plug into better speakers its great.

BEST MP3 PLAYER EVER...HERES WHY!

By IrishYouWereHere from Maine on 10/09/2012


Pros:

Bright Display, If Accidently Submerged In Water Will Still Work, Durable, Lightweight, Built-in Speakers, Realistic Color, Inexpensive

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

-I included the picture (worth a thousand words) I took before dropping it for laughs-I received this MP3 player as a birthday gift and fell in love with it the moment I turned it on. The screen resolution is absolutely AMAZING, it has flash player (which is pretty hard to find), the speaker/headphone sound quality is the best I've heard yet on an MP3, super easy to use, and the picture quality that it takes is BRILLIANT! This is the where it gets good...My boyfriend and I went for a walk down to the river at the end of our street today and it was so beautiful I decided to take a picture. In the process, I DROP the player down a steep 20ft bank and watch it tumble to the bottom and plop into the bottom of the disgusting, muddy, mercury/e-coli filled Penobscot River. My jaw dropped and I baaawled. How could I be so stupid? So what else is there to do but to go in after it lol. Thankfully my wonderful bf volunteered so I didnt kill myself in a crying mess trying to climb down a 20 ft slope to get it. He gets down there after a good 5 minutes and can still see the screen glowing at the bottom, picks it up and IT'S STILL WORKING PERFECTLY! Thank God! The speakers were a little messed up for a few hours until it dried in some oatmeal, but are now working again like new. Its like it never even happened. And thats why this product is the best thing in the world. Definately buy one, it will ecceed every expectation and then some!

Pros:

This is a great player-tablet. The handiest computer I own. I have ten 32 Gig. micro sd cards for it in a neat little card holder so I have tons of storage. Take anything and everything with me wherever I go. This device has never once let me down. If it were to quit on me I would not hesitate to buy another Samsung.

Bulky but nice product!

By Anonymous from Undisclosed on 09/19/2012


Pros:

Inexpensive, Realistic Color, Durable, Bright Display

Cons:

Too Big, Tricky Keyboard

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Its not an expensive device, great for online gaming, social networking and for music thanks to the microSD slot, my device was so good but I noticed a problem with the qwerty keyboard (landscape and portrait mode), tricky keyboard that sometimes turns on the numeric and symbols by itself, the unit was repaired by Samsung USA, hope that is not a problem of all Galaxy Player devices. It will deserve the 5 stars if an upgrade to ICS will came for it.

Best "PDA" I've ever had!

By OwnerofTigger from Undisclosed on 09/17/2012


Pros:

Inexpensive, Built-in Speakers, Multi-task Ability, Bright Display

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

After being a Palm PDA user, I finally decided to upgrade. And since I don't need a cell phone, this has been a perfect fit for my needs. I love that I can quickly look up stuff on the internet, have ALL my music on the player, keep copies of Office documents that I refer to frequently and I also downloaded a copy of the US Constitution so that I always have it with me! Both my girls have iTouches and I think they are kicking themselves a bit. I love that I am able to connect to my computer and just drag & drop items to my device. Though I do wish the camera had the ability to zoom before taking a photo and perhaps having keys/buttons to control brightness or the ability to access "settings" for outside viewing or inside viewing, because there seems to be too many steps to get there and maybe a sleeptimer. But there aren't too many negatives I've found with this player. The battery life is excellant. I plug it in every night to charge and it lasts a long time. I'm glad I made this purchase. If only there was a larger selection of cases/clips for this device, that would be even better!

Excellent, but...

By mtnpreacher from Michigan on 09/10/2012


Pros:

Built-in Speakers, Durable, Pretty Fast

Cons:

Poorly Designed Power System, Poor Documentation, Useless Apps, Gps Drains Power

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I really like the Galaxy Player 5, but it has some deficiencies. First, a simple manual explaining the design and key functions/apps would go a long way toward making this device truly powerful. The manual basically show a picture of the device with labels for the buttons - lame. Second, there seems to be no O/S upgrade path. Samsung should simply tell us what upgrades, if any there will be. Not answering customer questions about this on the webpage leaves customers feeling abandoned and frankly, used. Some apps don't seem to work correctly or even logically. Tell me, why would a GPS app require wifi connection? If I was connected to wifi, I wouldn't want an app to tell me what turn to take next, right? Oh, and if I can't use the app without a data connection why pretend you're giving me something good, when really, it's useless? Frankly, a little information and common sense would leave me less frustrated. I shouldn't have to comb the internet for info that should have been in a manual.

Does everything I was expecting and does it better. Additionally, does so much more than I guessed it would. Easy to use, easy to understand, and so easy to get up and running. Beautiful display is great for viewing HD videos. Excellent speakers allows listening without additional sound amplifiers. After 3 weeks of using daily, I haven't found a single thing I wish was added or was changed. Great value for the money!

When I saw the Galaxy Player 5 in the store, I fell in love with its huge colorful screen, excellent resolution, all the right features and an amazingly low price. Since I have owned a Samsung Windows tablet for nearly a year and have loved it, I was convinced of Samsung quality. The more that I use this player, the more that I am convinced what a great product it is. It has surpassed my expectations.

Love It!

By wbeane72 from Undisclosed on 08/20/2012


Pros:

Lightweight, Inexpensive, Bright Display, Built-in Speakers

The Samsung Galaxy is packed full of features. I have been very pleased with the responsiveness of the touch screen, the ease of use, & all the features it offers. It has a very small learning curve, especially if you are already familiar with an Android operating system. The only complaint I have is the built in music player. Apparently there is a glitch in the software that causes it to quit working. After just a few uses, it started giving me an error message saying "not enough memory". When I researched the problem, I found that it is a common problem. Simple solution, download a different music player.

Not Worth the Money for Upgraded Version

By shulty from FL on 08/14/2012


Pros:

Bright Display, Sound Quality, Realistic Color

Cons:

Camera Features Changed. No Zoom Button, Did Not Meet Expectations, Poor Quality

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

There is no good reason to purchase this item just because of the Wi fi. Because you always have to be around an area that has it. The older version had a great camera set up that included a zoom button. The upgraded version took that away. I purchased the older version mainly for the music and because it took great pictures and it was lightweight to travel with. The only good things they changed was the sound quality and the size of this player. Otherwise the 4.0 was better and more worth the price. I am going to return this 5.0 for a completely different one. What a waste of money!!!

Music App has a lot of thing to improve

Cons:

Im getting tired of the Music App, the simple fact that it will not start up the next time I use it in the Song that was playing last time, drive me nuts, each time i need to go, select the play list again ( if i recall what i was hearing), and start all over again and again, and yes you can use another app, but, the controls when is lock only works for the former Music App, so please do not leave this great product die due to a minor but very upset list of details. is i great product from a great company, but please " Devil is on the detail".

i brought this to replace Ipod nano, i was looking for a mp3 that was non apple. The wi-fi is fast, able to surf online, the resolution is great when looking at videos and netflix. It has great sound It has all the features of a phone without the monthly cost. i can use it to record, download and watch shows on my DVR with my Uverse app. this is a must buy. Once my wife saw it and played with it, now she wants one and is planning on buying one soon. if you want a great alternative to the Itouch with better features and sound check this one out. Oh i forgot to mention the sd slot for extra memory. The only negative i have was the Kies, it was annoying to get it to work with my player.

GREAT DEVICE

By GalaxyPlayerGeek from US on 07/28/2012


Pros:

Bright Display, Lightweight, Inexpensive, Built-in Speakers

Cons:

Freezes

This thing is awesome. It runs on Android, which is a big reason on why I bought this. I am both a photographer and a dev, and the camera on this thing is great. Although 3.2 megapixels might not be that awesome as smartphones nowadays, but it is SO much better than the iTouch's. Also Android allows people to download ROMS and OS's which you can find at xda developers. However the screen freezes sometimes, which is very annoying.

The product has great features but missing a few items

By Scent12345 from Calrksville, TN on 07/28/2012


Pros:

Inexpensive, Realistic Color, Lightweight, Built-in Speakers, Bright Display, Has Flash On Camera

Cons:

No Updating, Lacks Performance, No Search Key

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love this product very much. i do believe samsung was making a great decision throwing a player out there at this time. My griefs about it are that it is missing a search button. some games do require that to continue on. I also believe that samsung could have increased the performance by at least making it a dual core. it may have costed a bit more, but not as much as an ipod. one other main problem is the ability to update. i've noticed the other players out now have the ability to update. it is possible that they have taken this into account, hopefully. bottom line is that this definitely beats apple by allowing a free operating system instead of the same old mac interface. lasts a tremendously long time and the micro sd slot helps give this a huge advantage on the market. i would recommend this to anyone that is looking to drift away from the usual apple and on to the future.

I liked Samsung galaxy player 5.0. It works like a small computer on the move for me. I could check my e-mails and posted photos into my Facebook wherever I found Wi-fi during my trips. However, some of the features could be better such as camera and speed of processor (1 MHz currently). The camera is slow and lags while taking pictures and resolution could be higher like 8 Mpx. The processor could be upgraded 1,5 MHz to give more juice to player for video games and movies. However, I still loved its user friendly features even though there is an initial learning curve for the use of the player and Android OS. Overall, I liked my player and strongly recommend it to the person who is looking for alternative to the other players out there.

Great Unit, wish it could be updated

By tsunamijohn from Ktown on 07/25/2012


Pros:

Bright Display, Built-in Speakers, Realistic Color

Cons:

No Rom Update For Ics, Not High Def

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This device works great and I run a ton of apps on it. The camera is pretty good, quality is good, etc. I really like watching videos on it (youtube, netflix, etc.) BUT, there are more and more apps that require Android 4.0 (ICS), but there's no update available, and no information about future updates. Bummer.

Galaxy Note WithOut The Phone Part & I Love It

By mdarius28 from Atlanta, GA on 07/24/2012


Pros:

Bright Display, Built-in Speakers, Lightweight

I love this media player, I love the features and the ease of use. I wish the bass was deeper and I wish the 5.1 option was available as well. The 5 inch screen is a blast to peruse, you can see and read everything, I also like the fact that this is the Galaxy Note without the phone (well that plus the Note is a little bigger).

lousy as an MP3 player, decent as a wifi-only smartphone

By dstarfire from Tacoma, WA on 07/22/2012


Pros:

Durable, Inexpensive, Lightweight, Built-in Speakers

Cons:

No Support For Android 4.0, Poor Quality

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

As an mp3 player, the Galaxy Player is worse than the low cost players that cost about half as much. The default media player has noticeably poor sound quality, and lacks a way to change tracks without using the touch screen or even from the lock screen. The best use for the Galaxy Player, however, is as a cheap, wifi-only smartphone. It's got sufficient power and memory for the vast majority of applications (complex games the primary exception). Unfortunately, even that's limited by Samsung's lack of updates, and support in general. There's still no support for Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), and trying to email support about this device is impossible (not an option in model number, a required field). However, if you don't mind relying on community support and giving up certain hardware functionality (camera, bluetooth) to try newer versions of android, or you just don't like the iPad, it's a great way to join the smartphone revolution.

Pros:

Cons:

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I absolutely love my media player! Only problem with it, its size. It's very large. It fits well in my hands, then again, I do have large hands. If you have smaller hands, you should consider the 4" instead.

Awesome product!

By ChimpChris from Undisclosed on 07/16/2012


Pros:

Bright Display, Realistic Color, Lightweight, Durable, Built-in Speakers, Inexpensive

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought this as a phone replacement since I mostly used the data on my phone plus I can make calls over wifi which is basically everywhere. The first thing that stood out from the iPod touch and most phones was the screen size. I have the larger of the two models which has a very bright, 5 in. display, which, when it comes to my eyesight, is great. It does pretty much everything the iPod touch does and then some when you take the fact that you are no longer dependent on iTunes into consideration. Plus the micro sd card slot is a great feature. And last but definitely not least, it is very durable. I must have dropped the thing almost 20 times (about 4 of those times being at least a 4 ft. drop onto cement) and i can only find one little scratch on it's corner (not the screen might I add) after a nasty fall in a parking lot. Altogether, this little (or big, depending on how you look at it) device has been great for about a year so far and is still going strong. I would definitely recommend it to a friend.

The Galaxy Player stopped working

By MsJackSparrow from Owensboro, KY on 07/14/2012


Cons:

Did Not Meet Expectations, Poor Quality, Stopped Working, Stopped Charging

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

It worked great until, out of the blue, it stopped charging. I have only had this MP3 player for less then 2 months. I will ask Samsung to replace, repair or exchange. Until then I am NOT satisfied with the product and plan to tell everyone I know. I will re-write this review once Samsung corrects this problem.

Ah-maz-ing! absolutely love it!

By Tylrpnk33 from Charlotte, NC on 07/13/2012


Pros:

Camera (front And Rear), Built-in Speakers, Easy To Use, Inexpensive, Durable, Battery Life, Bright Display, Lightweight, Realistic Color

Cons:

Not Many Cases

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love this thing. i bought this because my ipod touch 4th generation ran out of room (8gb). i know this is the same size, but it has the micro sd card expansion, which i love. it is so much bigger than my ipod (just the lcd screen itself is as big as my ipod). i love that it can do everything that the ipod can do, and then some (like the built in FM radio that comes with it). the camera just destroys the ipod touches camera, with 3.2 mega pixels, while the ipod has barely 0.7 megapixels. this really is an amazing item, i would definitely buy it

Pros:

Built-in Speakers, Bright Display, Lightweight

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

After buying the Galaxy SIII and falling in love with it I decided to upgrade my Zune to the Galaxy Player 5.0... This is so awesome. I no longer have to lug my tablet (which I also love but can be bulky) around. This fits right in my purse and does everything the tablet does. I wish I had made this purchase a few months ago when I went on a business trip.. Would have saved me on bags..

Not as good as i was hopeing it would be

By CowboyUp45601 from Ohio on 06/28/2012


Pros:

Micro Sd Card, Built-in Speakers

Cons:

Did Not Meet Expectations, Not High Def, Touch Screen Sucks

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I am not happy with the touch screen at all. it never clicks on what i am wanting too or it doesn't seem to work at all. I always have to usually click 2 or 3 times and then another 2 or 3 times to actually click on what I want. I thought with using this and getting use to it things would get better but it hasn't. the money you pay you would think they would use a better screen too. They can not compete with I pod but it was a nice try but didn't try hard enough. It was a poor job trying. To compete with the best you have to produce the best. Just overall not happy with this product at all.

Cons:

I bought one for me and one for my wife. So far, we love all the features this thing provides. It's been proven helpful in so many ways in just a couple of weeks. I never liked combining phone with multifunction, I find it that i goes obsolete in a year or so. Rather like utilizing this for pics, songs, vid, and on some occasion use the wifi. Thank your for the nice product.

3.5mm Jack is highly flawed

By mynicknamethatsnottaken from Undisclosed on 06/26/2012


Pros:

Built-in Speakers, Bright Display, Lightweight, Realistic Color

Cons:

Poor Quality, Did Not Meet Expectations, Don't Use The Headphone Jack

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I bought one of these yesterday and wasted 30 mins trying to figure out how to get the headphones to work instead of the speakers. It turns out you just plug the headphones in and its supposed to switch to those but the thing has to be in the exact right place or it doesn't work. You can push it in to far and it doesn't work. If its not in far enough it doesn't work. When its in correctly the grooves don't seem to match up to keep it in that spot. You can turn (or press or pull) the cord slightly once its in right place and it stops working and pauses the song so you have to press power and swipe screen and unpause and move it around until it works again. Obviously I figured the thing must be defective so I returned it and got another one. This one does the same thing! I mainly bought this to use as a mp3 player with headphones so its pretty much useless to me.

Excellent. Portable. Easy to Use

By Trave11er from Oregon on 06/26/2012


Pros:

Durable, Bright Display, Lightweight

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought this principally as an ebook reader, downloaded Kindle and Nook and an epub program, and have used it constantly for that. But this also functions extremely well as a small tablet, as it connects to wireless networks with 3 touches, is quick and efficient, and has some kick-butt apps (like Local) that are really useful. I watched 5 seasons of Supernatural from Netflix on it (fun!) and have downloaded video. Love the crispness of the picture. All around, a great gadget for someone on the go. A tablet that doesn't need a backpack, just a back pocket!

Bottom Line:

I've had this player for a month now and used it and abuse it into my everyday work/personal life. I've had some considerable times where the player has locked up on me (mostly using the GPS features and wifi). Otherwise, I'm loving the player. It's performs great. The display is nice and bright. The sleek design is awesome. The battery is enough to get me through the whole day. I think the price of this player could have been little lesser than what I paid.

Bottom Line:

I originally purchased the Samsung Galaxy Player 4.0 a few weeks ago from a local retail store and loved it; however, I wanted a display that was slightly larger but still portable enough to fit in my pocket so I purchased the Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0 this evening. The SGP 5.0 exceeds my expectations and I could not ask for anything better to listen to music, watch movies, and surf the Internet. I certainly hope Samsung makes another 5 inch Galaxy player in the future after this one is no longer available!!!

Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0

By Karson from Winamac, IN on 06/16/2012


Pros:

Bright Display, Built-in Speakers, Realistic Color, Durable

Cons:

The Plastic Band, No Camera Button

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0 is AMAZING! The overall performance and structural stability is a lot better than an iPod Touch. There are only two things i wish Samsung would have thought about and those are, the chrome band going around the screen should have been metal, and a button on the side, (like the lock and volume buttons) for a camera shortcut. Other than that the Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0 is the best MP3 device I've owned! ... I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT!

Outstanding in every way!

By qfox44 from North Carolina on 06/14/2012


Pros:

Durable, Front & Back Cameras, Built-in Speakers, Realistic Color, Long Lasting Battery, Lightweight, Bright Display, Big Display

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

First off I was trying to pick between this galaxy player and an ipod touch. At first sight i knew this would be an outstanding media player. The audio/video quality is amazing. It seems bulky and heavy when looking at it, but often i forget about it when its in my pocket (and yes it has fit in ever pocket that i have tried putting it into). Playing games, listening to music, watching videos, etc... by far out rates my friends ipod touch. The best thing about it is the LONG battery life, no im not being sarcastic. I was able to play games, watch videos and listen to music for a solid 3 days without charging it, and it still had i think 25% left. The only thing i wish different about it is that the battery was removable, but im happy the way it is. Im able to take my galaxy into restaurants, stores, and other places where my brother has to leave his tablet in the car because its too bulky.

this is a good player wish on the radio part it also was bluetooth compatable, also if your going to have a camera it should zoom with finger movement. for the price all that should be available. Also wish you could have extra battery and separate charger like I do with my phone that would be a nice option accessory to be able to purchase. because when the battery goes down it takes hours to charge. But a nice gadget to have if you like gadgets

The Samsung folks has a winner with the Galaxy S 5.0 Wi-Fi player. This easy to use device is great for first time users of android devices! Has features that are often only available on larger more expensive devices. The ease of operation, with the larger than a phone screen, makes this little unit a must have around the house or for trips out around the block, or around the country!. I would recomend this for all ages!

Durable, Built-in Speakers, Realistic Color, Lightweight

Cons:

Accessories Limited

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I was so pleased with the 1st one I bought, that I returned to the store a week later and purchased 2 more for my family! Size, performance and portability is just right and so far it just works! Although it's priced higher that other media player in it's class, it out performs the others bar none. The single core processor does the job whether I'm web browsing, streaming a music video or movie or playing game from the Android market. Great job Samsung!!!

Samsung Galaxy Player Rocks!!

By SEEKSTER from USA on 05/25/2012


Pros:

Inexpensive, Realistic Color, Bright Display, Lightweight, Touch Sensitive Screen, Durable, Big Screen, Built-in Speakers

Cons:

Not High Def, No Good Case Choices, Not Gorilla Glass

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We own an iPod Touch 4g, and my wife & I both prefer our Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0 over the iPod Touch. The Samsung Galaxy Player (SGP) sounds better in our car and on our home theater system than our iPod Touch 4g, and it plays louder than our iPod Touch too. It also sounds better using it's own internal speakers than the iPod Touch. The SGP has a large screen which makes surfing the Internet very enjoyable. The screen is just the right size. I also own a Nook Color and it's screen is a little to large to carry around everywhere all the time. The SGP is the perfect size. It fits in your pockets and it feels about like a billfold if you carry it in your back pocket. Two thumbs up also to Samsung for allowing access to all the Android Markets and not to just their own "Samsung Apps" market. Both the Apple iPod Touch and the Barnes & Noble Nook Color only allow you access to their company owned Markets. Which is why I ended up here today submitting this review. I decided to go online to the Samsung Apps website and check out what Samsung had available on their own market and to check out what's available specifically for our Samsung Galaxy Player. BTW, nice APP Website Samsung. While I was here I finally registered my SGP. We've been to busy having fun with our SGP to take the time to register it. Anyway, back to my review. My wife and I both dislike iTunes and the need to sync our iPod regularly. iTunes is a resource hungry, unnecessarily complicated piece of software that has become even more difficult to use every since Apple activated their "Cloud" storage for their iPods, iPhones, & iPads, etc. With our Samsung Player we don't mess with uploading our media to the "Cloud" which is very time consuming because like most people we have very fast Cable Internet Download speeds, but only modest Upload speeds. Therefore, uploading media regularly to the "cloud" with our iPod has become very tiresome. And in all honesty, we don't need it uploaded to the cloud. We just "drag and drop" our media to and from our computer to our Samsung Galaxy Player whenever we're in the mood for a change. Yes, we are NOT using the "Cloud" with our Samsung Player, but the truth is since the Samsung Galaxy Player has an SD Card slot which accepts up to 32GB SD cards, we don't need online "cloud" storage. SD card storage is getting cheaper and with much larger storage capacities and in much smaller storage packages by the day. With more than one SD card we can completely change our media from just music, to just movies, or to just games and everything in between in a matter of seconds. Apple's closed storage systems on all their products requires that you the consumer use their cloud for storage. And the more data you have, the more storage you will need. Therefore, sooner or later you will have to pay for more storage and you will have to continue to pay for that storage every year. We on the other hand will be storing our media on our SD Cards, or own PCs, and our Network Storage Devices, which we can access not only from our own home WiFi Network or via Bluetooth, but also anywhere there is an Internet connection. The Samsung Galaxy Player has impressed both of us so much so, that we will most likely be getting Samsung phones when our contract expires. And I am hopeful that Samsung will continue to offer even larger removable storage solutions for their devices in the future, and maintain the quality of this Samsung product.

Awesomely Epic!

By MagicMAN1 from Georgia on 05/24/2012


Pros:

Realistic Color, Built-in Speakers, Long Battery Life, Bright Display, Android Market

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

It does everything you want it to and more. My friends with Ipods and Ipads are jealous. The speakers on the Player are much louder than an Ipads. The battery life is very good. You could leave at flashlight app on full bright for 6+ hours. With a similar app on an Ipod you may get 20 minutes. Good viewing angles on the screen. i have had no lagging in the first 3 weeks of heavy use.

Great features some little problems

By lb1914 from Undisclosed on 05/23/2012


Pros:

Durable, Realistic Color, Built-in Speakers, Inexpensive, Bright Display, Lightweight

Cons:

Battery Icon And Charging Problems.

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We've loved the galaxy. Works as our home phone using google voice app when we're overseas. The only problem we've had is the battery charging and the indication. The battery will stay full until almost run down and then just drop to the bottom. When charging overnight the battery icon will never reach 100%. We will be trying to get it repaired under warranty.

Samsung did it Again

Pros:

Inexpensive, Realistic Color, Durable, Bright Display, Lightweight

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I did not want a tablet but wanted something that I can play video, listen to music and surf the web. I already had a laptop. This is a great product to do all of that. It feels good and solid, bright picture and good sound. I have bought other Samsung product and have had a good experience. I would say Samsung did it again. Great product!

Bright Display, Durable, Built-in Speakers, Inexpensive, Realistic Color, Touch Controls Work Well With Games, Lightweight

I had just canceled my Android phone contract, and was missing all the apps I used to enjoy at home, and at my coffee shop pitstops. Now with the Galaxy Player 5.0 I have all my favorite apps, without a two year phone contract, and monthly payment. Awsome display, and the battery lasts alot longer than my phone. Very happy owner.

My Ipod got stolen and I didnt want another because I really thought that the screen was too small. This Galaxy 5.0 is large enough and works alot better for me than the Ipod. I actually thoguht it would be heavier because of the size but I was wrong. I will now consider trading in my Iphone 4 gor the Galaxay Note this october when my contracct runs out!

Good all around value

By MediaKane from Honolulu, HI on 05/11/2012


Pros:

Inexpensive, Pocket Sized Mini-tablet.

Cons:

Direct Sunlight Kills The Display.

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

After having used this player for just over a month here are a few comments: Hardware is as advertised. I use 8-32GB SD cards w/o problems. The avg. user should keep any card installed in the player for file management (aka side loading.) Was planning on upgraded ear buds but those provided are just fine for everyday use. Note: Don't plan on using this device in direct sunlight. Software as installed is decent > good. Most folks will not need to pick up replacement apps. Keep in mind that the graphics of most apps are scaled to smaller devices so they will display a bit too large. Browser: Very flexible, but limited to 4 open windows (tabs, if you will.) Audio player: Flexible enough, thumbnail view of albums, etc. is a nice touch not found on other players. Installed codecs seem decent but IME the mp3 doesn't like lower bit rate encodes (<192kb.) YMMV Overall rating: 4.5 stars.

Nifty Little Player that can be used as a Mini Tablet

By Dwebed from Richmond, VA on 05/10/2012


Pros:

Bright Display, Durable, Realistic Color, Lightweight, Built-in Speakers

Cons:

Lacks Sufficient Documentation

Bought the New iPAD when it came out with a portfolio case. It is way too big to lug around and the iPOD touch is too small. The Galaxy Tab 7.0 won't fit in your pocket either. This little 5 inch player is just the right size to fit in a shirt pocket and to carry around. The screen is bright and clear. The GPS works great and unit has strong WiFi. The sound it produces is great. Able to move Apps to SD which you cannot do on Android Honeycomb based units onward. Shame, because it makes the new 7.0 Tab 2 useless, IMO, with only 8GB. With the player 5.0 you can actually use the external SD card to expand your memory. This is a great little unit to carry around with you and the screen is big enough to surf the net and read docs, etc. Highly Recommend! EdP

My workplace was actually starting to design apps for Android and I did not want to commit to the monthly contract of a phone. I am also a long-time PDA/Palm user who finally realized it was time to move on, so I bought a Samsung player. I've been happy with my choice since day one. Good value, access to most applications out there, a screen actually big enough to read on, yet it can still fit into my purse.

Pros:

Inexpensive, Bright Display, Lightweight, Features, Built-in Speakers

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love high-tech electronics, and when looking at different tablets, I saw that all of the 7 inch and larger sized tablets were too expensive and way out of my price range. Then I saw the Galaxy Player 5, and it caught my eye with it's smallish yet feature-packed design. I like that it is able to do so many different things like GPS (it would be even better if I can get that feature to work...), an FM radio, video player, and on and on. I love what this Samsung player can do, and the price is nice, too.

excellent product, Thanks samsung!

By luvmysamsungg from Undisclosed on 05/06/2012


Pros:

Built-in Speakers, Screen Is The Perfect Size, Realistic Color, Bright Display, Lightweight, Inexpensive, Durable

Cons:

Cant Video Record With Front Facing Camera

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I reviewed this after owning it for a day and i gave it a 4 out of 5 the first time becuase i was upset that i couldnt record video with the front facing camera. I am remaking this review after owning this player for a couple of weeks. I now give it 5 stars. This things is absolutly amazing. When you look at the competition there really is noone that offers anything at this level. Please samsung do not ever build these with planned obsolescence like apple builds thier ipods with soldered in batteries. This battery being clipped in as opposed to soldered in is why i chose this over an ipod. Although of course this player is much better in many many more ways. This thing is amazing. Its just what i was looking for. the 5 inch screen really is the PERFECT size. Whatever you do samsung dont sway from making the 5inch versions as they will catch on it may take time, it seems that many people dont even know about this player here in the usa. You guys are on the right track keep it up! I sure hope that samsung builds on this device as i will surely buy the predecessor to this device if it has better specs which im sure it will. Seriously thanks samsung!

Bright Display, Lightweight, Inexpensive, Built-in Speakers, Durable

Cons:

Bottom Line:

This player is so great. the music player is much better than the ipod touch's music player. I has 60 hrs of music playback while the ipod touch has 40. I has a bigger screen and a brighter screen. I have dropped this player on concrete several times and the plastic just absorbed the drop. Anyway great device for long trips and everyday use. Fits nicely in my pocket although it sometimes falls out.

It's just a mini Android tablet...which is exactly what I wanted!

By richpit from Tarpon Springs, FL on 04/27/2012


Pros:

Bright Display, Size / Portability, Lightweight, Inexpensive, Full Android Market (google Play)

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have an iPad (first gen) and a Samsung Fascinate phone. This player is really just a slightly larger version of my phone, minus phone capabilities. It's exactly what I was looking for. I love my iPad, but sometimes it's a little unwieldy to carry around. This "media player" is the perfect size to carry and have wi-fi access to everything...since there's a hot spot almost everywhere you go these days! I really like it. I've had no problems with it so far. The battery life is not amazing, but few devices these days have phenomenal battery life.

Pros:

Lightweight, Durable, Built-in Speakers, Bright Display, Inexpensive

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Even after all the reviews I read (most of them saying to buy an IPod over this Galaxy Player) I decided on the Galaxy! Both my sisters have IPod Touch and the screen was just to small. I have large hands, so the Galaxy Player was great for my large hands. The screen resolution is not as high as the IPod, but with this LARGE screen it does not need to be a higher resolution. The camera on the Galaxy is WAY better than that of the IPod. Also its ANDROID! What more is there to say?! Overall BUY THE GALAXY PLAYER!

A Happy User !!!

By LamaYogi from Wisconsin on 04/24/2012


Pros:

Lightweight, Bright Display, Beautiful, Realistic Color, Built-in Speakers

Cons:

No Radio Antenna

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Everything works without worries! Had IPod touch but this definitely beats the Pod as the feature on this device is beyond one could imagine! Love the Galaxy Player 5.0. Its perfect in my palm. Like the camera flash and if you use the right app you can turn it into a bright flash light. GPS works without WIFI. Only thing I would recommend for future purpose is that battery life could be extended. Also the FM radio should have built in antenna or could have a side pull out antenna but hidden, so no one have to see antenna unless you are using the radio. Back cover could be black but I bought black fitting cover so no one will know it is white unless one digs through. I must say, I love the Galaxy Player 5.0. Overall A++

Can't believe you market this as a media player and not a 5" tablet!

By Warehouseguy from Upstate, New York on 04/21/2012


Pros:

Realistic Color, Lightweight, Built-in Speakers, Bright Display, Fits In Your Shirt Pocket!, Durable, Inexpensive

Cons:

Camera Shutter Delay

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

After using the Galaxy 5.0 for 3 months now, I find it hard to believe Samsung only markets this as a "media player". To me it is the most awesome (5") TABLET on the market. It does everything the 7" and 10" tablets do and it fits in my shirt pocket! Have only tried a few mp3 files and the sound is very high quality through the included earbuds and the external speakers. WiFi and websurfing work flawlessly and the Android apps available are mindboggling. Not enough time in the day to try them all. I am anticipating the purchase of a Galaxy 4" or 3.6" in the near future. Galaxy 5.0 is high quality and durable. Keep up the great work!

Pros:

Inexpensive, Huge 5 Inch Screen, Lightweight, Fm Radio, Long Battery Life, Android Os, Built-in Speakers, Durable, Realistic Color, Bright Display

Cons:

Bottom Line:

I love this player. It is the perfect size. It is as big as possible while maintaining a "pocket size". It's like a table that fits in your pocket! The screen is beautiful, but somehow the battery still lasts quite a long time. My experience with an iPod Touch (before the Galaxy Player 5) was the exact opposite, on all counts. Thank you Samsung!

Love, Love, Love It!!

By BosJerseyGirl from Undisclosed on 04/13/2012


Pros:

Good Battery Life, Inexpensive, Bright Display, Lightweight, Durable

I have had this product for a few months and I just love it. I use it more then my 8" tablet. I can fit it in my purse which it doesn't weigh it down. You can add so many apps from the market. It holds a lot, and the expandable memory is a plus. The price is excellent for all you can do with this little gadget. I wish it were 3G compatible, because I would use it more while out. My phone is too small for my eyesight, so this would be perfect to keep up with reading emails and keeping in touch on Facebook with friends. Don't hesitate if you haven't bought this product. Oh and the battery life, AWESOME. Just if you charge it, do it with the player on or the battery indicator will tell you it isn't done charging. That's the only flaw.

Not a Tablet?

By JayBird2 from Florida on 04/12/2012


Pros:

Bright Display, Lightweight, Durable, Realistic Color, Inexpensive, Built-in Speakers

Cons:

No "phone/wireless" Connection

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

What a great Android device; but why isn't it marketed as a 5" tablet? If it included communications beyond WIFI, it would be the perfect device.

Everything I was looking for and a little more :)

By mzlady from chicago, il on 04/11/2012


Pros:

Durable, Lightweight, Bright Display

Cons:

A Tad Too Thick

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is a really great device. I bought a tablet and after a few days it was too big so I took it back and bought this. It's just the right size, the wifi is great, i just hook it up to my phone's hotspot and I can listen to pandora and all my music while driving and receive a call without my music being interrupted. I can also mount on my dash and use the gps without straining my eyes. Love the apps and games, and even the ability to control my other samsung devices through this. The only thing is it could have been a tad bit thinner, but overall I'm happy and just $20 more than the Ipod touch, it's worth it!

Everything is just great. It can even play m4a files. Plus it just fits in my pocket. I would recommend this.

Gave me what I wanted and what I didn't need

By FordTractorman from PA on 04/04/2012


Pros:

Bright Display, Lightweight, Built-in Speakers

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I wanted an e-book reader, an MP3 player, a camera for capturing pictures on the go when I forgot the main digital camera, and a GPS for my own vehicle. I didn't want a smart phone because my tracphone meets my limited needs for a very low cost. The Galaxy Player 5.0 meets my needs plus offers me many customizable options that I didn't know I needed or wanted. The graphics and sound are great. It slips nicely into my shirt pocket. The FM radio is a great bonus for when I'm out mowing the lawn or doing other chores. The wi-fi connection was another must have requirement and the Galaxy has worked great at home and at work. Excellent product.

Best PMP I've had.

By Anonymous from Los Angeles, Ca on 03/31/2012


Pros:

Bright Display, Realistic Color, Built-in Speakers, Inexpensive

Cons:

Looks Ugly When Dropped On Silver Frame

This PMP is so great. I love it. It had a beautiful sleek design but the con is that when it's dropped the silver frame looks really nasty if you look at it up close. So remember to buy a case and a durable one at that. I thought the glass was Gorilla glass but it's just some fancy plastic. That's why the screen scratches faster than gorilla glass. But this device is all around amazing in entertainment, looks, and productivity.

After researching this item I thought I would give it a try. Besides it's similar to the galaxy note, and all it's features (except the phone) I find myself using this unit more than my tablet and my favorite feature!.. it's small enough to fit in my purse or pocket. Samsung has another winner.

40 Something's Ipod Touch

By Mom2One from Undisclosed on 03/14/2012


Pros:

Built-in Speakers, Easy To Use, Android Market, Lightweight, Realistic Color, Bright Display, Camera

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This thing is great! I received a Nook Tablet for Christmas but returned it for this. After playing around with the Galaxy Player 5.0, I found that it was much easier to use and read on, even though the screen was smaller than the Nook. I use it for everything, checking email, facebook, reading books, browsing the web, listening to books and music, games, and more. The camera is great too. Even though it is only 3.2p, It takes excellent stills. It does have some issues with moving objects due to low shutter speed, and the flash is not wonderful for low light areas, but overall, it's pretty good.

Awesome Device

By Rivers2Net from McHenry, IL on 03/14/2012


Pros:

Realistic Color, Lightweight, Built-in Speakers, Bright Display

Cons:

Little Bit Pricey

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I was looking for something not so big and not so small. I already own the Samsung Galaxy tablet. When I saw that Samsung had come out with a smaller version of the tablet, I hurried to go get one. So far, I absolutely love it. It fits in my purse without adding extra weight. The screen size is big enough for my old eyes to see it clearly. It's definitely a go get item.

Pros:

Bright Display, Built-in Speakers

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have had this unit for about a week and I love it. I have an android tablet so this was easy to get used to. The only problem I have encountered is that it deleted all the music I put on it (I did not delete the music or any apps) and this morning I found that the books that I downloaded through my reader app are all back to needing to be downloaded (I am now at work without access to WIFI and I really wanted to continue reading my current book on breaks). Not a deal breaker since it's easy to redownload everything, just a pain if it keeps happening. I would highly recommend this to anyone! Again I love this.

Totally Awesome!

By mcsleepy from Palestine,TX on 02/25/2012


Pros:

Lightweight, Inexpensive, Diversified Usages, Realistic Color, Built-in Speakers, Bright Display

Cons:

'buggy' Earplug Jack

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

After 3 months of use I can say this little device is truly awesome! I love the size; perfect for putting in my purse yet big enough to provide a great reading screen that doesn't frustrate you with too little text on a page, fun to surf the internet ANYWHERE (with WiFi) or just in bed at night, backlit screen so I don't disturb my husband using it at night, carries all my audiobooks, ebooks, AND music. A perfect median between the iTouch and the larger Tablets that are just too big to practically carry around. You can even make calls on it, though I haven't explored that possibility---a bit too big for that in my opinion. This little guy will do what the big tablets do but in a size that is much more mobile-friendly. The only problem I have had is with the earplug jack. The connection was TERRIBLE, so I had to send it in for repair. The repaired jack is better, but still a bit tricky. That is very disappointing because I absolutely LOVE this device, otherwise. I think there may be a design problem with the earplug jack since I am one among others who have also had this problem. I was expecting the replacement jack to be a redesigned one without the "touchiness" of the first one. Though better, it is not as bug-free as it should be.

By rmillington from Undisclosed on 02/23/2012


Pros:

Realistic Color, Bright Display, Inexpensive, Lightweight

Cons:

Single Core Proc

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

All around this is a very great product. Basically it is a very similar to any Android based devise - and that is also it's downfall. The bloatware is a little irritating. I have previously purchased other apps that are far more superior than the stock apps. I do not like having unused/unneeded apps sitting on my devise taking up space. I would like to get rid of these apps as I will never use them. Also I am a Mac user and went with this over an iPod due to screen and memory upgrades via an SD card. However, the software needed for updating the firmware is Windows only and still could not connect to my devise. (my old windows laptop is just that, old.)

I originally bought an ipod touch 4th gen, which is a good product, but I hate I tunes. I also wanted a device that was larger than the ipod touch and this 5.0 player fits the bill, It has a great feel to it. It fits in your hand nicely. I have heard people reviewing this say it is awkward to hold in one hand, I'd say only if you are a small child would this possibly be awkward to hold in one hand. The display is beautiful and the screen size perfect. It is really a small portable tablet, just what I wanted.

I purchased this mp3 player to be used as a music player and navigation in my car so I do not have to constantly plug in and unplug my phone. It has a big screen and color on it looks amazing! In my home I use the push email function so that I don't always have to be in front of my laptop or computer. The speakers on this player sounds amazing and there are times when I just playback music in the room and it sounds great. I would definitely recommend this to a friend.

I did a lot of research before deciding on the SGP5. It's simply THE best device of its kind on the market. The SGP gets my highest recommendation to all my friends and acquaintances Now if Samsung would produce some accessories for it, I could give Samsung my highest rating. The SGP needs a desktop cradle, or charging stand, a thin and soft case, and so on. I love my SGP5 and use it every day. It's my "right hand assistant".

Pros:

Realistic Color, Built-in Speakers, Bright Display

Bottom Line:

The galaxy is very good for most daily activities....surfing, email, apps, scheduling. One HUGE downfall that samsung needs to address is that the mini diary data cannot be backed up. Samsung Kies only backs up pics, videos, calendar and contacts. This is a huge downfall, because if you consistently use this diary and then need to transfer it to your pc or another samsung product, you can't and all your diary entries will be lost.

Don't believe the tech blogs when it comes to the Galaxy Player 5

By spinn9000 from Philadelphia, Pa on 02/08/2012


Pros:

Lightweight, Good Operational Performance, Built-in Speakers

Cons:

A Little Pricey

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Yes, the technology samsung is employing in the galaxy players is "last years" stuff. As a package designed for media consumption with being able to run apps/play games, The Galaxy Player 5 is in my mind the way to go. Performance-wise, it functions quite nicely with nary a hiccup that some lesser hardware android devices suffer from. Handles what's thrown at it and handles it well. I've even run some music composition applications on it and they run quite nicely. Nicely enough to be able to interact and control them effectively. If you're looking for a little bit more than what the competition offers at a good value and aren't put off that the technical specs are dated by a year (while still being a great performer) I would highly recommend a Galaxy Player 5.

Pros:

Built-in Speakers, Lightweight, Bright Display, Realistic Color, Inexpensive, Durable

I enjoy is so much that I purchased one for my husband.

Galaxy Player

By DebsToy from Upper Marlboro, MD on 01/31/2012


Pros:

Lightweight, Bright Display, Durable, Built-in Speakers, Inexpensive, Realistic Color

Cons:

Need 3g Connection

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is my new best friend. I love this device. I have only one problem. If 3G was added to this I would be totally thrilled. For example using the GPS by voice activated while driving. If I could connect to the internet while in my car, riding on long trips this would make this device perfect for me.

Great Product

By Javafool from TX on 01/25/2012


Pros:

Built-in Speakers, Realistic Color, Bright Display

Did a lot of research (and used a friend's GP4). Fast enough for playing movies and streaming the audio to bluetooth headphones. Movies look great - even at 186 ppi on the 5" screen. Ghost Armour has both screen protectors and 'full armour' so lack of glass screen should be np. For movies the size is unbeatable - <4" too small and 7" and up too big to carry around.Great battery life (turn off Wifi and GPS when not specifically using them - easy to do via the top menu). Using Navigation app (connected to Wifi to get directions, then just GPS once on road) worked flawlessly. Specs for device are a bit dated, but it's the best non-phone, handheld Android device out now. Not sure what too wait for. Higher res screen that doesn't add much to the experience? Faster processor(s) so that apps open 1/2 sec sooner?

True love!

By Energizer from Long Island, NY on 01/23/2012


Pros:

Lightweight, Built-in Speakers, Bright Display

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I'm a news nut, and a music lover. The Galaxy Player allows me to read all my favorite newspapers and websites on a bright, sharp and awesome 5 inch display. I can watch videos, download books, podcasts, magazines, virtually anything. I'm able to hold it in one hand; it's the perfect size tablet to take anywhere around the house, to work, on the train or plane, or on vacation. It will easily fit in my pocket. Music sounds amazing through the included earbuds or using the built-in stereo speakers. I added a micro SD card, so I can take more tunes with me. I've had it for over a month, and I still can't put it down, as I find more and more places that have wi-fi. My wife wishes I held her hand as much as I hold the Samsung Galaxy Player 5. I can only imagine what they may think of next...

Galaxy Player

By Mufasa7394 from Undisclosed on 01/23/2012


Pros:

Durable, Lightweight, Bright Display, Realistic Color, Built-in Speakers, Inexpensive

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

When I first got this thing I was amazed. It look really good on the outside and it had a nice sleek design. When I powered it up it came on right away and the screen was really vibrant and colorful and looked good compared to other screens I have seen. The battery life last for a couple days and the device can keep up with daily task. I was looking for a replacement for the iPod and I tried the samsung galaxy player out to see how it compares and personally to me the galaxy player is way better than the iPod. This is a very good device and it gives me a another reason why I have chosen android over apple. This is a great product and I would recommend you buying it for all the awesome features of android and the great technology from samsung.

My Little BIG-Screen

By MinosOne from Monterey Park, CA on 01/23/2012


Pros:

Built-in Speakers, Expandable Data Storage, Bright Display

Cons:

Little To No Accessory Support

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've been able to own this for just three weeks now and I'm hooked. I won't go into over wording the review and try and leave it simple with just the likes: 1. Integrates nicely with my 55D8000 2. Plays ALMOST everything I throw at it - FLAC & MKV 3. LOUD & clear volume 4. Long battery life 5. Able to use VOIP via WiFi 6. MicroSD card slot 7. Gets attention everywhere I go 8. I don't have to pay a monthly fee to my moble service provider to use it nor can they track me 9. Has everything I wanted in a media player (almost bought a derelict player that rhymes with zoom a.d. with 25% of the features) 10. Not an i device

AWESOME

By dmannn from Undisclosed on 01/22/2012


Pros:

Built-in Speakers, Lightweight, Bright Display, Durable, Inexpensive, Realistic Color, Better Than The _pod

Cons:

Not Many Accessories Yet

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Awesome device, does everything i need, but out of the box the wifi cuts off in the middle of videos and stuff, but all you have to do is set up a static ip address which is easy. I would also recommend getting the app Poweramp, which is a much smoother music player. Other than that this thing is awesome and easy to use.

Go Big Or Go Home!

By GalaxyAstronaut from Port Washington, WI on 01/21/2012


Pros:

Realistic Color, Bright Display, Built-in Speakers, Lightweight

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I was impressed with my Galaxy Player from day 1. As soon as I got it out of the box I was amazed. The size is perfect for everything. Videos. Music. Web. Games. You name it, you can do it. Whenever I pull it out I always get asked what it is or people exclaim about the size. Ialso get asked what sort of phone I have, then I have to break it to them that it can do everything a phone does except make real calls. Even my friends with IPhones think that it is amazing. So far the only probkem that I have had is running out of memory storage but this can be easily fixed by purchasing a microSD card for the expandable storage. This is a fantastic ptoduct that can get stuff done!

I have other Samsung products in my household such as big tvs,blu-ray, surround system and now this handy tool. Things can get better, but for now its just right.

Great Mini-tablet!!!

By NTGinID from Idaho on 01/15/2012


Pros:

Lightweight, Durable, Realistic Color, Built-in Speakers

This thing is great for music (including radio), video, multiple ereader sites. TONs of apps...just all around super handy to have. I wanted something that was easier to use, surf on net with, etc., but still pocketable. This fits the bill! My only minor grip is that the keyboard is a little tricky in portrait mode, but is easy in landscape. Love it!

Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0 Feature Rich!

By GadgetDesigner from Pennsylvania on 01/06/2012


Pros:

Built-in Speakers, Bright Display, Inexpensive

Cons:

Fm Radio Does Not Play Through External Speakers, Touch Screen Not Aligned To Display

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I am a professional electronics engineer that is involved in the customer service field. I needed a product that could replace my 7 year old digital PDA. The Galaxy Player 4.0 and 5.0 offer an excellent array of features that make it very easy to migrate from the older PDA to the newer Android platform. I am overly impressed with the quality of features (both hardware and software) that come packaged with the Galaxy Player. The Pro-features can be read on any review, and I give a full 5.0 (top rating) to these features. The Cons: 1. The Galaxy Player suffers from the slightest misalignment of the touch screen to the viewing display. So functions like typing on the keyboard, or pressing tiny command buttons in your applications are not accurate. I have googled this issue, and there are several complaints about it (but it is not a show stopper). I do highly recommend that the next flash upgrade for the Galaxy Player includes a 'Touch Screen Calibration' feature to correct for this issue. For now I just use the device's keyboard in landscape mode. 2. The built in FM Radio only works with headphones, even though it has a setting to play through external speakers. This should also be fixed. Others have brought this up as an issue as well, but again, it is not a reason to stop a person from investing in this quality-packed device. Congratulations to Samsung, for devoting product development resources to create this device.

Whatpod?

By Xopher from Undisclosed on 01/06/2012


Pros:

Built-in Speakers, Inexpensive, Bright Display, Durable, Realistic Color, Lightweight

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This thing kills Ipods. Bigger screen, better gaming, Allshare, does not need that "tunes" to upload music and video and the price is right. VOIP, video calls and very load speakers. Not the highest definition but I'm only picky about that when it comes to gaming.

By Luv2Shop3 from Yelm, WA on 01/05/2012


Pros:

Lightweight, Realistic Color, Built-in Speakers, Bright Display

Cons:

Gps Requires Wifi

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I am very impressed with this player. I love the size of it, which is small enough to fit in my pocket, but big enough to read books on it. I love all the features. My only complaint is that the GPS location (to get directions) only functions when you are in WIFI range, which doesn't help if you are on the road somewhere. Other than that, a very good product. In fact, I recommended them to a friend who bought 2.

It's not something that is going to prevent me from liking it or using it all the time just a slight annoyance.

Pros:

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I needed to buy a new MP3 player, since my last one died. I wanted a player with expandable memory, which left another popular brand out of the search. I decided on going with an Android device. The only one I could find that met my specs was the YG-70. Once I got it, I haven't put it down. The screen is great. The audio clarity is superb. I have no problem recommending this to anyone.

Bottom Line:

Originally I had an ipod touch 3rd generation but decided enough was enough and I wanted to switch to something different. This device went above and beyond my expectations. I could not believe the amount of customization I could do to have it better suit me and be my device. Also the amount of quality apps available was overwhelming. Overall this hands down beats my old ipod and I dont think I will ever look back

Excellent Media Player

By jbas from Florida on 01/02/2012


Pros:

Built-in Speakers, Bright Display, Lightweight, Realistic Color

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My daughter received the Galaxy Player 5 for Christmas. It's an excelent larger display media player. Her galaxy player been configured for WiFi calling as well, so she can use it for voice and texting while connected to the home WiFi network. She also likes using Skype with the front facing camera for video calls to family members. We like the vibrant 5" display, and find the pixle density to be fine for this size. She uses the kindle and nook apps for reading on the go. Excellent product with great feature set and Android flexibility.

I picked this as a Christmas gift and I've been using it about 2 weeks. I use it to check e-mail, play music, movies and as a GPS! Every time I use my Galaxy Player I find more uses for it. The 5" screen is just rite and it is easy to hold in one hand. I did have to find a GPS app that works without WI-FI. Now all is well! It's so much more than a player

I just got my Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0 for a Christmas gift. So far, I have not been able to put it down! I had an iPod Touch 2g for a long time but really wanted to update. So I figured I would try something new and go with the Samsung device. I really enjoy the big screen and the android market. The integrated Google toolbar is also nice. Another thing that makes this a great device is the customization! I highly recommend trying out this product. Good job Samsung, I just wish that there were more cases available for this device.

I use the Galaxy player to check my email when I am not in my office at work, Facebook post, recipe apps when cooking, listen to music, and read books before going to bed :-). Love it! Love it!

Bought 4 of the SGP5/YP-GB70s :)!

By jimlum from VA on 12/28/2011


Pros:

Durable, Built-in Speakers, Lightweight, Bright Display

Cons:

No Camera Zoom Preview

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I initially got one of these as a present, then subsequently, purchased another 3 to give as gifts this Xmas, by request. I'd been waiting for the YP-G70 to become available in the U.S. for almost a year, and was thrilled to finally get mine, and mostly haven't been disappointed. It is an excellent Android tablet. I have several other tablets, including a 7" and 10", but wanted something more portable, and the YP-G70 definitely fills the bill. The only disappointment I've had is that the camera does not support zoom while taking pictures. Hopefully Samsung will rectify this shortcoming in an update, because I know that there's at least one app that can do zoom on the YP-G70.

Pros:

Realistic Color, Inexpensive, Lightweight, Built-in Speakers, Bright Display, Durable

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I had purchased the Galaxy Player as a mp3 player to use in my new car to listen to music. I have become so attached to the wifi internet capability that I am using it more than my laptop. The screen is the right size and I like the ability to view all videos. There are cases available now for it. I like not having a monthly data plan. I use the wifi more than my internet on my phone.

No Dedicated Camer Button

I didn't think this thing would be as big as it was but it is still very pleasant. I've had this for a while now and I've worked up a few pros and cons: Pros: Camera flash is bright! Great at multiasking Screen is bright and clear Easy to type on and hold in your hand Runs every app installed flawlessly Cons: Like always with these things came with a bunch of bloatware No dedicated camera button, taking pictures with this would be so much easier with one Sometimes the touch sensitive icons on the bottom become a little unresponsive but only through severe multi tasking.

Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0

By DonD95 from Atlanta, GA on 12/06/2011


Pros:

Built-in Speakers, Realistic Color, Lightweight, Bright Display, Inexpensive, Durable

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have had the Galaxy 5.0 for three weeks now and think it is an outstanding product. I was looking for a tablet that would fit comfortably in my pocket and yet have a large screen. The Galaxy 5 fit the bill. The screen is huge at 5 inches. Since I also carry an Android cell phone with a web plan and can make it a hot spot, I can connect the Galaxy 5 to it and have web service all the time to watch movies surf the web and do email. The camera is excellent and takes very good pictures. The display screen is sharp and clear. I enjoy the large internal storage and can add up to 32 GB's more with a micro SD card. I added only 16 more and feel it will serve me well for what I want but I can always add more. The device is fast. Web pages open rather quickly. The case is metal and has the feel of a high quality product. Two stereo speakers are much louder than a cell phone. It also serves well as a book reader with the addition of certain apps. Battery life is excellent and much better than the average smart phone. I would highly recommend this device.

Great truely portable Android device.

By OnTheMove from King George Va on 12/06/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love the size. Its large enough to be a usefull tab while small enough for coat pocket portability. Please keep producing products in this size. Think small tablet rather than primarily an mp3 player (although it is a great audio device). Please produce similar sized models with advanced processors, latest OS, and lots of on-board memory in addition to SD slot. I never liked the prospect of tieing my media device with a wireless phone (and its attendant contracts and charges). Now I can use a basic pay-as-you-go phone which can be discarded if the carrier gets annoying or too expensive and not have to worry about my media player. The Kies application needs work.

Amazing! Don't settle for less!

By digitalicecream from Laguna West on 12/05/2011


Pros:

Durable, Built-in Speakers, Bright Display, Realistic Color, Lightweight

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I picked up this player to enjoy my apps when my mobile contract expires, as I am fed up with expensive mobile phone plans. I found that the screen is stunning, bright, and flawless. The backlight is intense, allowing me to see the screen in broad daylight. Many of the features of the Apple devices are rivaled by the simplicity and integration offered by the Samsung player. All but a few of my Google Apps were not supported in my Player, but those that are not supported are unnecessary. the Player has Swype built in, and makes typing a breeze as well as traditional typing obsolete. The Player doubles as an excellent VOIP phone, and really leaves me asking myself, "why do I need a mobile phone again?". As for tethering when you are out and about, this thing does an excellent job and there are so many tools to help you stay connected. I find that I have no desire to use my mobile anymore, and I reach for my Player nine times out of ten. The only thing that this thing does not do for me, is send/receive legacy SMS/MMS messages (obviously, since it is not a phone it cannot do that). But the work around is to show my friends and family other ways to communicate. I do suggest you check out the devices locally where possible, as 5" is gorgous but not meant for everyone's individual tastes (or hand size). If you find the 5" is too large for you, check out the 4" for the right fit.

The only fantastic android player that beats the IPOD!

By Phantompersona from Santa Rosa, CA on 12/03/2011


Pros:

Bright Display, Lightweight, Durable, Built-in Speakers

Cons:

Not High Def

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This player was all i was looking for. I needed something to text and surf the internet without having to play a monthly bill (cell phone). I hated apple products because they constantly broke done on me. Samsung finally released a media player that answered all my needs and then some. This big player is small enough that i could carry around my college campus. The sound quality of the music is amazing. The big 5 inch screen is gorgeous. All in all the player is one of the best mp3/wifi players in the market today.

Galaxy Player 5.0

By Savergn from Undisclosed on 12/02/2011


Pros:

Battery Life, Realistic Color, Built-in Speakers, Android, Blazing Fast, Plays Practically Every Game On The Android Market, Lightweight, Great Headphones Included, Bright Display, Awesome Music Player Included

Cons:

Not An Oled Screen, Only 8gb, Somewhat Expensive, No Dedicated Picture Key, No Notification Light, No Search Button, Charge Time

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

After only playing with one of these in a store for a few minutes, I was instantly sold. The fact that it has Android 2.3.5 means the phone interface is something most Android users know and love, and so it makes it easy to work with/get apps for. The SuperLCD screen has an incredible viewing angle as well as brightness, I keep mine at 25% at all times can see it perfectly in every situation. This thing blows throw whatever you through at it, in spite of the 1Ghz being a single core. The camera can also take very good pictures if there's enough light in the scene, the front facing camera is little blurry, but perfect for Skype or Google+ Video chat. The audio quality is outstanding. I haven't found a device that allows for the music to sound as good as it does on my computer as closely as this can, The fact that it plays FLAC right out of the box is a big win for any hardcore music lover. The web browser is fast and responsive. Even with Flash content enabled on a page, it scrolls and pinch to zoom's really well. Its the perfect choice between a new phone and tablet, being only 5 inches, it fits well any almost any of my pant or jacket pockets and it makes it easy for me to carry it around every. Also, by using this more than I use my phone, it saves my phones battery life and memory as I don't need as many games or apps on my phone. I'd definitely recommend this product for those wanted a fast Android device that is the next best thing to a phone.

Great for what it is...could be better than the iPod Touch

By TheLoiProject from Undisclosed on 11/29/2011


Pros:

Built-in Speakers, Inexpensive, Realistic Color, Lightweight, Durable, Bright Display

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is basically the Android version of the Apple iPod Touch but it needs only a few upgrades to make it better than the iPod Touch. 1. More internal storage 2. Higher resolution screen 3. Better front and rear cameras Other than that, it would be perfect to fight the iPod Touch because the price is better and you can expand the storage with microSD cards.

Great Machine BUT

By dontknowwhattheywant from New York, NY on 11/25/2011


Pros:

Built-in Speakers, Realistic Color, Lightweight, Durable, Bright Display

Cons:

No Armband

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Like most Samsung products, the device itself is spectacular, but Samsung has still not figured out that "mobile" means people want to carry it around, like to the gym and places. There is no armband for it! This is a major problem and it really makes me angry! This is the same problem I had with an old Samsung mp3 player, years ago. I still have the device, it is still a great device, and Samsung did not have armbands for it then, either. I am still angry about that. Frankly, I regret buying the Galaxy for this reason alone, and I can recommend it to my friends only with reservation: it's a great device, BUT.

WAY BETTER THAN IP*D TOUCH!

By LetsGoHokies from Blacksburg,Va on 11/25/2011


Pros:

Gps Enabled, Realistic Color, Lightweight, Bright Display, Micro Sd Slot, 5mp Camera W/ Flah, Built-in Speakers

Cons:

Hard To Find Accesories For

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought this product because it offers a few more additional features than the iP*d touch. The GPS is working great, the rear camera with flash is very convenient, and the micro USB port is very handy. The only downside is that I cannot find a nice case with a kick stand for it yet.
