    I had been looking at purchasing a PMP for some time. Reviews had put me off the Galaxy Player, saying it simply did not work! I was looking for a player to watch BBC I Player files, listen to music, surf the web, have android if possible, but be small enough to fit in a pocket and not cost the earth.
    Having deliberated over many devices I decided to take the plunge, thinking I could be making a big mistake.

    However, what a great little player this is. Simple to use, just drag and drop music, and you dont need to use Kies (I find it hard work). Android works fine (apart from Angry birds, but I had heard this before). Music box means you can download pretty much any song you want straight onto the player. Wifi works fine, no problems. 8GB is also fine to get you going; plenty of space for songs and video. If you run out, just stick a Micro SD card in.

    I don't have an issue with the quality of the screen, I am sure there is better technology out there (latest I Pod Touch), however I never paid I Pod Touch money, and for viewing TV programs on the go, its fine.

    The one thing that has taken a couple of weeks to sort out with Samsung is how to get the player to play files from the BBC I Player. I had many answers from Samsung, all of them wrong, until finally the right solution.

    You cant just drag and drop I player files in mass storage mode (like you can music), neither can you use Kies. What you have to do is change the USB setting to Media Player, then synchronise the player using Windows Media Player 10 or higher to bring in the required video. This is not clear in the instructions. Once you have done this you can then watch video from the BBC I Player.

    Negatives. A little slow to start up.

    The best thing about the Galaxy is Android 2.1 OS - running this means you have the opportunity to to use the Android Market with all of its 200,000+ applications and download all the media content you like. The Player supports many files including MP3, OGG, AAC, M4A, WAV audio and MPEG4, H.263, H.264, WMV, DivX and XviD video, and serves as a camera, a digital voice recorder, an electronic compass, a radio and a GPS. G50 also supports 802.11n Wi-Fi networks so you are only a bluetooth zone away from using the internet. Runs for around 24 hours of audio or 5 hours of video on a single battery charge.

    As a player, sound is great - SoundAlive technology gives full 5.1-channel surround sound. The controls are simple to use - Advanced and multiple sound presets allow you to change file sound to your preference, for example, adding more bass oh high tones. Video is equally simple to use - you can use the changeable sound presets or leave it in Theatre mode.

    The camera option takes good pictures, and the great thing is that you can share them instantly via your favourite social networks and websites.

    If 8 or 16 GB is not enough for you, Galaxy Player has a micro-SD slot for memory extending. I'd definitely recommend this as the 8gb just isn't enough for all the things you'll want to use this for.

    If you only opt for the standard 8gb model, you'll find that this really equates as only 6gb, and even then it leaves no room for storing photos and videos.
    The controls can be slow, taking up to 10 seconds in some cases. And the player sometimes fails to recognise the headphones, resulting in you having to unplug and plug them back oin again. This is usually after a period of inactivity. Not a major biggie, but certainly an annoyance.

    This is basically a smart phone without call capability. At a cheaper price this wouldn't be an issue, but in all honesty I sold mine on again and bought an IPod!

    With hundreds of new devices launching at the market every year it is not easy to follow all trends. But once in a while they release device so good people keep on talking about it for a very long time. Since the announcement of Samsung YP-G50 Android 2.1-based player in September 2010 people just keep comparing it with iPod! I was wondering why))) Now I finally got it and would like to share my thoughts on it with you.
    I took the one 8 GB with thinking to enlarge its capacity up to 40 GB in the future (thanks God it has a micro-SD slot for memory enlargement!). First, I was very interested in its sounding qualities, so my testing was very severe ' The best part about it is that it has SoundAlive function which enables it to change the sounding according to your tastes. More bass, more instrumental, auto, etc. Just try it while listening to music - it is absolutely amazing to hear how it changes sounding))) The same can be applied to video files (personally, I like Theater function for surrounding sound). G50 supports wide range of files, including MP3, OGG, AAC, M4A, WAV audio and MPEG4, H.263, H.264, WMV, DivX and XviD video.
    Because this is Android-based device you will find all Android applications like Android Market, Maps, YouTube, Talk, Google Mail, ThinkFree Office and many others. Using Android Market you can download from more than 200,000 available applications. Many games, many good and useful stuff you'll need - this is all Android and that is why I love it^^. G50 is first of its kind to run on Android, I think. In my opinion, new 2011 year will be marked by many new Android-based players once Samsung has started this race))) And I am pretty sure they will be simply the best!!
