With the absolute barrage of Samsung Android devices having been released this summer, fall, and on into the winter, you'd think that they'd just skip sending out the Galaxy Player 5.0 altogether - it being a device essentially released internationally several months ago. Instead they're releasing it relatively silently in a way that wont defeat the iPod as many have said it would be aiming to do, but will fill the void where Samsung simply hasn't had a wi-fi only handheld media player before. Will it sell for what it is, or will it fall at the hands of its own much more impressive smartphone lineup? This is the 5-inch Galaxy Player, one of two, the other having a 4-inch display. This device has a WVGA TFT LCD display, this meaning it has 480 pixels across and 800 pixels down. This means that it's got the same amount of pixels that several Samsung devices out on the market have already, all of them with smaller screens. This means that the pixels on this display are spread over a larger space rather than being tightly packed as its family members display's pixels are, making the display on this device appear comically large.
The Galaxy S Wi-Fi 5.0 is basically a souped-up version of the 4.0 portable media player. It has a very similar set of tech specs to the 4.0 model, which is in turn heavily based on the Galaxy S smartphone. This 5.0 PMP does, however, have a bigger screen (5" instead of 4"), a flash and a longer battery life. As you'll see from out test results though, it can't match the 4.0 on some key criteria. Full details of the product's audio quality, design and handling can be found in our review of the Samsung Galaxy S Wi-Fi 4.0 (and therefore also the Galaxy S smartphone review!). To give you a brief idea though, it has a great design, handles nicely, has decent connectivity and multimedia functions and has a good-quality sound output—even if the headphones supplied are a bit rubbish. It also offers direct access to Android Market and full compatibility with Android apps, unlike many other Android-based portable media players. There's just one drawback to this 5.0 version ... and it's a big one! While the 4.0 version has an S-LCD screen, the Wi-Fi 5.0 has a Super AMOLED Plus screen with a very bog standard panel.
