Default Samsung Galaxy Player Reviews?

Anyone care to share their thoughts on this Android MP3 player? I was thinking of getting one since Samsung tends to build good quality devices. I've read they have a 5 Band EQ but I don't know what audio processor they use or what they sound like?

I was actually thinking of buying the 5" version for music and web browsing.

Go to Anythingbutipod.com and go to the Samsung section of the forums. There's tons of info there, and members will answer whatever questions you have.

Thanks, it looks like you responded in that thread. How's the audio in your opinion? And how's the build quality?

It looks like the 4.0 uses the wolfson dac. I love FLAC and it looks like the 5.0 doesn't support those files because of the Yamaha dac. Is that correct?

The 5.0 plays FLAC, and the audio quality is quite good IF you use a different music player than the one Samsung has as stock. I used PowerAMP, and some love the RockBox .apk.

As for build quality, go to a phone store and look at a Samsung Galaxy S series phone. The build quality is almost the same. It's OK in my opinion - buy it's not Z:HD 1quality. A good case will make it last a long time though.

I sold my player because I'm going to get a SG Note - that's pretty much the same as a SGP 5.0, but with the phone option included.

Thanks for the info, i've read conflicting info. I think i'll stick with Cowon for now enough though their PMP's fall apart.
