5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for me.

Pros: Was tempted to get the 5" screen but this one worked out perfectly for me. I use this mostly for watching my shows on the go or between classes, running emulators, and well of course music. It can handle almost any video format you throw at it including .mkv though I have had problems with .ogm

Cons: Hardly any cases on the market for this product.

Other Thoughts: Those looking for a decent case look up ringke.

5 out of 5 eggsA great tablet, beats the iTouch

Pros: This is a great media player. I was looking for a replacement for my 3 broken Zunes, and wanted to stay away from Apple (I still own 6 Dell DJs.) After trying 4 various Android devices I was about to give up, but I feel in love with this. What attracted me was how it looked identical to my windows phone, only running android. It has proven to be just as responsive. I wish my Windows phone had some of the Apps this device has - like evernote, pdf reader to name a few. This worked so well out of the box, and was so intuitive, that the only thing I have to figure out is how to do playlists.

Cons: Hard to read in daylight outside (my windows phone is OK at this). Would have liked to see more documentation, but I have not looked online yet and it may be there.

5 out of 5 eggsA Great Little Device!

Pros: Its a great little device actually, and in all comparisons its basically a galaxy nexus without the sim card, but its one of the best Mp3 players I've bought already, touch screen is smooth and its quick too for applications and what not! I also have a 16g sd card plus the 8gs which is plenty of space!

Cons: The only real con i've got to say is, i usually have it in my side pocket and i have the back facing towards the direction i'm walking, well my pocket does get hit by things at times and as it seems the back cover has a couple cracks in it sadly :( nothing severe but i do have warranty if things go south, i only wish they made covers!

Other Thoughts: Well all in all, its a great device a little expensive but its well worth it in the long run!

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Player!!

Pros: My son wanted an mp3 player and was close to purchasing a used iPod for $150. We went to Best Buy to look at the iPods and saw this little beauty and were immediately sold. Wound up buying them for our whole family. It is a great mp3 player, but also runs all the apps from the Google Play store. We've got them loaded up with free apps and everyone loves them. Screen is great, product robust, etc. I chose the 4.0 over the 5.0 for the replaceable battery. When Android gets hung every once in awhile, pull the battery, replace and back in business. My friend got the 5.0 and it was bricked when it hung. Here's another awesome thing to do with this player, get a no contract data plan and buy a 3G wifi hotspot. I went with the Virgin Mobile one for $70. If you install a $5 app called GrooveIP, get a Google Voice account/number, now your Galaxy Player becomes a VoIP phone! So for no contract and $50/mo, you've got it all! Also, you can add memory to the Galaxy! Apple not.

Cons: None that I can think of yet except for the hangs that seldom occur. But they're easy to fix with battery pull.

Other Thoughts: Love my Sammy, Apple can take a hike. No swappable battery, smaller screen, worse sound, cannot add memory, plus I hate Apple.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat option for non-Ipoders

Pros: Not a fan of apple and didn't want to have to be tied in to data plan for $30 a month to have an android phone. I bought this for less then the 2 year contract price of the closest phone anyways. I found offline gps software for it so can even use for turn by turn directions with voice prompt while driving.

Cons: Wish there were more case options, like an otterbox, but found a thermold case for it that i like.

5 out of 5 eggsiPod Destroyer

Pros: Excellent build, screen, apps, and aesthetics. Sound quality is vastly superior to the iPod (what isn't). It pipes some great tunes through my Westone UM3X professional earbuds.

Cons: Stock earbuds are about as bad as those that come with the iPod.

Very careful.

Not many case options.

Other Thoughts: I already have a Samsung YEPP-P3, which has astounding audio qualities...and this is very near its equal. Don't listen to what the fanboy/fangirls the $179 I paid...this is a steal. At $199, it is still great.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Product

Pros: This media player can do just as much as a iPod. The android operating system works great with 2.3 version. High quality graphics, speakers, and endless apps. The price was fair for what the product can do.

Cons: nothing, works better then i thought it would.

Other Thoughts: I would recommended buying this product if you don't like paying monthly data bills on a phone. As long as you have WiFi the product works great.

4 out of 5 eggsAn interesting alternative

Pros: The plus's of this device really come down to what makes any android device differant from an apple device.
I bought this so that I could play games while lounging around at home without killing my battery on my phone and to have as a music player that wouldn't be restricted to specific formats.
This device performs both of those tasks perfectly

Cons: The only real problem is the battery life, which isnt spectacular. If you leave it laying around for about 72 hours expect to come back to it and find the battery dead. Standby mode is one of the few things that iOS does really well over android.

5 out of 5 eggsNeed a mini tablet? This is it!

Pros: OK, I use this player a LOT since I got it, for gaming, music, taking pictures and videos, streaming video online, reading scriptures apps, reading all the news. They all works GREAT! And it fits in my pants! What not to love about this, screen is very nice, never had the WiFi drop on me. Love this.

Cons: WIFI ONLY! if you need to get online everywhere? This is NOT for you. IS time to sign up for a data plan, and pay up for a smart phone. some game apps crash once awhile, that is the nature of some apps, nothing to do with the player.

Other Thoughts: I would also highly recommend the 5.0 player (the 5 inch version of this) much bigger screen, is very nice for video and gaming, but it is kind of big and is NOT comfortable in you pants, but if you got a hand beg or back pack, go for the bigger one, is only $40 more, is well wroth it, I wanted mine to be portable so I got the 4.0 player.
