5 out of 5 eggsPretty Good

Pros: Long Battery
Large Screen
Ease of Use
32mb SD Card

Cons: Doesn't go over Android 2.3

Other Thoughts: Wi-Fi Only.
This was my first smart device.
Purchased device and tried to download skype to make it into a phone but the wi-fi wasn't strong enough at my workplace
I think the speakers work just fine.
You may have to do a complete factory reset when you get the product in order for the product to work more efficiently

3 out of 5 eggsGalaxy

Pros: Looks like a phone
Trick people into thinking its a phone
watch your (stuff) on it

Cons: Battery is NOT removable.
Mic could be better
Camera has no zooming
Can be slow because of the 377mb of RAM
1GHz CPU (if you root it)
Lots of bloatware installed from Samsung
Glossy

Other Thoughts: Customer support are mentally challenged. I told the first guy before he transferred me to his supervisory he is a completely mentally challenged. So when you contact Samsung just ask for level 2 or level 3 support instead. If he can transfer you to anyone else other then level 1 tech support say "yes".

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Player, Abandoned by Samsung (as usual)

Pros: This Player (at least the hardware) is best-in-class - in my opinion.
Great Screen, Feature Packed.
Decently fast CPU, with outstanding battery life.

Cons: Forgotten by Samsung before it hit the shelves.
If you stay with Samsung firmware, you're stuck so last decade.

WiFi is flakey - and generally has a short range when it does work.

Other Thoughts: Here are some clarifications regarding previous posts:

"ARB" is the code for "Factory Refurbished, USA". ARB stamped devices are refurbished in the Texas Plant mentioned.
XAA is the code for a NEW US Market Player.
"CW" simply means "8GB/Capacitive". All new US units are YP-G70CWY/XAA.
"CW" has nothing to do with your warranty.

"TPA", or International Players, are physically different than US Players. TPA players have an actual mechanical button for [Home]. US Players use a touchpad.

The speakers really can't be any better. Speakers require surface area to work. This is a 5" MP3 player, that is loaded and has a huge battery. There really isn't much spare area left for better speakers.

FM Radio does not work without the headset because the headset cable is the ANTENNA.

The battery is NOT soldered in. It can also bought for $20 or less from multiple vendors. Search "Battery 5735B0". 4 screws and a case opener (often supplied with the battery) is all that is required. If it takes you more than 5 minutes to change this battery, that's on you.

FWIW: There is a very active open source community around the YP-G70. Android 3.x Jelly Bean and Android 4.x Ice Cream Sandwich ROMs are available. I have used several, and they perform well. However, I typically use either the Chip (now 1.5) or R.E.E.D. - stripped down 2.3.6 Gingerbread ROMs. They are ideal for what I use it for - a (semi)permanently mounted GPS/MP3 Player in my truck. Also, formatting the internal flash EXT4 speeds it up noticeably.

3 out of 5 eggsProblem with warranty in USA, as well

Pros: Large, clear screen

Cons: Speaker sound could be better, The FM radio does not work without headphones (because), cannot be upgraded past Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

Other Thoughts: I had the same problem as another reviewer with my warranty not being honored in the US (where I bought Player). Mine says it is a YP-G70 CW/TPA. CW means it is 8GB, and the country code is TPA--which Samsung customer rep said is not a USA market code. I was told "XAA" is for sales in the USA. I notice the Player for sale here is coded "ARB"; if you are buying it in the US, I hope you don't expect to get it repaired here during your 90 day/refurb warranty....

3 out of 5 eggsGreat gadget BAD WARRANTY SITUATION

Pros: decent sound;
5" screen feels like MORE than an inch of improvement over 4" screen (or smaller on iPods);
Stand alone GPS navigation with right app
expandable with micro sd slot (though I have a bunch of apps and maps and have never needed it, but I suppose if you want to carry full movies around with you....)

Cons: can't go above Android 2.3 Gingerbread;
WARRANTY WILL NOT WORK IF YOU HAVE "CW" in the model number (see review)

Other Thoughts: A general note about Samsung manufacturer's warranty from an experience I just had earlier today. Be aware.

My Samsung Galaxy Player is 11 months old and after calling them about the (sealed, soldered-in) battery life going down to an unacceptable level, they said that if I sent it to their ONE AND ONLY point of repair in Texas it would receive a new battery. When I gave the customer service rep my model and serial numbers she commented that the numbers made it seem like it was not made-for-USA-market. But that device worldwide was built the same, so no matter.

Today I received the device back with a note that said nothing had been done to it because "Device worked." And then "Technician Advice: Return device to country it was manufactured for to receive repairs."

After 2 hours on the phone with Samsung, they told me that the Texas plant cannot repair anything not made for the US market, but they would try to figure out what country it was made for and get me the phone number for that repair plant--it seems like maybe it was meant for Mexico.

Pfft! My Square Trade extended warranty kicks in next month, or I'd be without recourse. My Player's model number is YP G70-CW*** --it's the CW that turns out to be non-American market. I only knew about the YP-G70 when I made the purchase, but even I had read the full model and called Samsung with it, they don't always know what country it was meant to be sold in...no red flag went up when I registered the device, just when I tried to use the warranty.

I love the device itself, but that battery just isn't holding up 11 months in, and you will void the warranty if you try to remove and solder in another (available at samsungparts dot com for "51 dollars, allow 4-6 weeks for delivery"). Square Trade is going to take care of this, but they shouldn't have to--Samsung has found a new way to screw people out of their warranties, knowing full well when people register that they have been slipped a foreign market device.
