5 out of 5 eggsa truly great product

Pros: feature rich, excellent reliability, ease of use, replaceable battery, quality touch experience, etc., etc., etc

Cons: gps died after 6 months, file structure very un- Windows like and not covered in any Samsung material, can't update android o/s

Other Thoughts: I rarely review a product that I've purchased, primarily because most product fall into the "good enough" category but not superlative. This Samsung which I purchased new about a year and a half ago is a great product and shows signs of being a Very long lived product.
If you want a fully featured media player and can live without phone functionality, this is for you. I regret that it will not survive the stampede to smartphones. I just may purchase another. I cannot imagine a more useful player.

5 out of 5 eggsSo Far, So Good

Pros: After opening packaging and box, inserted battery and charged it overnight. This morning I turned it on and put it to work. installed a 32GB MicroSd card and started down loading music from my PC with no issues at all. connected to my home wifi network easily and downloaded Google Voice & Groove IP and made a few test phone calls, no problems at all. downloaded the Flixster app and tested watching a movie from my collection. I don't own a smart phone and have never used anything like this, but it was pretty easy to get the ball rolling. the viewing screen is larger then the total size of my old mp3 player (sansa fuze) and it's crystal clear. at under a hundred bucks, this was a great deal.

Cons: The Newegg packaging is their only flaw. bubble wrap packaging on one side of the box, my item on on the other. Just a little attention to detail and a strip of scotch tape would go far in decreasing the number of items that are DOA and get RMA'd.

Other Thoughts: I also purchased the 2 year return warranty with this item, I mean it is refurbished after all, but it looks brand new out of the box. There were no issues with the Battery and since I already have headphones I'm good. I did look at other sites for this item, but there was nothing close to this price.

4 out of 5 eggsCorrect battery size, April 2013

Pros: I read all the reviews saying that this came with the wrong battery size, but mine came with the correct battery, ready to put together and charge. The device is light and runs on Android, so I'm familiar with the layout from having an Android phone. Works great, sound quality is great. Excellent product!

Cons: Headphone jack is on the bottom of the device, which means it doesn't fit in my little armband holder that I wear at the gym (Wow, I have never stated a more "first world problem" as that before). Also, I wish it had more options for lock screens or backgrounds. The storage is kind of small; I don't have too much music, but even my small collection doesn't fit on this player. The device of course comes with all kinds of bloatware that cannot be removed unless the device is rooted (jailbroken). Either way, works great, it's light and sleek, exactly what I was looking for!

1 out of 5 eggswrong battery size

Pros: none that I can tell.

Cons: shipped with wrong battery size. this highly irritates me that whoever refurbished this cannot tell that the battery plainly does not fit in the device.

2 out of 5 eggsHeads up I didnt get the Right Battery

Pros: It is a beautiful design, but I cant tell how good it is.

Cons: I read about the battery shipping issue and figured they should have fixed it buy now. They haven't. Its almost too light too but again i cant tell without the right battery.

Other Thoughts: They really need to get their act together over there in refurbishment, this is unacceptable.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: Bought this for my 9-year old son for his birthday - made sure to order well in advance just in case I ran into the battery issue (wrong size) others have apparently had. Turns out it shipped with the correct battery, popped it in, started right up - no problems.

Not much else to say, it's simply works. Screen is responsive, it's thin and stylish, mint condition.

Really the only reason for my writing this review is to help balance the eggs average to show the at least some ship with the correct battery.

Cons: A small complaint (not worth deducting eggs) is the version of Android it's running seems a bit dumbed down - it's missing some small features I'm used to with my Galaxy S3 phone.

Notably, there's no way to make the timeout on the Menu, Home, and Back "buttons" on the bottom. They always turn off after about 2 seconds with no way to extend that time.

Some other misc. exceptions, but again, not worth docking eggs.

5 out of 5 eggsfantastic device

Pros: excellent touchscreen responsiveness. After a year it is perfect. Many, many features and Android apps. An alternative to the ipod touch that is superior and cheaper; I know because I've had both. When you have to replace the battery, it's a 2 minute task. The ability to expand storage to 32 gig is excellent.

Cons: The manual is just alright. The Samsung website is not particularly helpful and below the standard that you would expect considering the high quality of their products. Many features and capabilities must be learned by trial and error. There is not a Win Explorer sort of browser that you can use to manage files.

Other Thoughts: If you are not looking for a smartphone but would like to have the expanded features of such a device, particularly at a reasonable price then there is not an mp3/WIFI device that is competitive with the Galaxy 3.6.

1 out of 5 eggsWrong effen battery size

Pros: NONE

Cons: WRONG BATTERY SIZE

Other Thoughts: Now I am going to have to pay MORE MONEY to have it shipped back which negates the cheaper price, not to mention this was a birthday present and now will take another week or so to get another one

I order from Newegg and am BUMMED!!! keep this up and I'll look else where from now on....shame on you.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat device for a non-phone

Pros: Solid player, full Google play support on a trusted and true OS. Expandable storage makes this great.

A great device for someone that doesn't want insane phone bills

Cons: kinda slippery, but it could be that I'm not used to such a skinny light device.

It is still running Gingerbread but with full Google Play support it's not much of a limitation.

Other Thoughts: I would wish Samsung to update the OS, there are roots out there but they won't add Jellybean to the list. The internal memory could be bumped up. I wouldn't have minded seeing 16gb model.

5 out of 5 eggsA great surprise

Pros: This is basically a 3.6" tablet, or consider it a cell phone without the phone. I like the touch screen and it gives a fairly sharp picture. Internal speakers are good, but with headphones, the sound quality is really great.

Cons: The keyboard is a little tough to type on, and my fingers aren't that large. Startup time takes about a minute to boot. Android 2.3 is OK, but I have gotten used to Android 4, so I would like to see an upgrade. Kies software is atrocious and will not detect my Player when connected via USB. I have to transfer music manually.

Other Thoughts: All I wanted for Christmas was an MP3 player with a screen that made it easy to select my music. You can imagine my surprise when I discovered this is a mini-tablet. Wow, I can surf the net and everything from this little device - and all for $100. I can't believe it. I've already added a memory card. I don't regret holding out for the Galaxy 5" player, because I didn't want something that large, but I can see where the larger screen would have been handier. I am thoroughly enjoying this.
