Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 5.0 hands-on test

 

The Android-based Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 5.0 is a massive media player or a small tablet, depending on your point of view. It could prove to be an affordable and slick alternative to the iPod touch.

Huge display ; Runs Android 2.2 ; Handy 5-megapixel camera

Could be too big for some ; No 3G connectivity

If the price is right, the Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 5.0 could be an attractive media player for those who want a slice of the Android pie but don't really need a new phone. Stay tuned for a full review soon

Hands-on with Samsung Galaxy Players

 

Samsung's new Galaxy Players, which come in 4- and 5-inch screen sizes, are Android-based devices that resemble blown-up versions of Apple's iPod touch.

Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 5.0 Android media player

 

Review I reviewed Samsung's first Android media player [1] just over a year ago and frankly thought it was awful. I'm sure I wasn't alone. Undaunted, Samsung tried again with a new device packing a larger screen, faster CPU and bigger battery but only...

If you want a large screen Android device as a media player or mini-tablet but don’t fancy being lumbered with an expensive mobile phone with single day battery life then the Galaxy S 5.0 has a lot to recommend it. Android 2.2 may be a bit behind the...

Samsung Galaxy S Wifi 5.0 review

 

A few weeks ago, I opened the box of a new Samsung Galaxy S Wifi 5.0 media player. Samsung's Android-powered answer to the iPod touch, the MID took its time in getting to the US. However, it is finally here, I have had a chance to use the it for a...

The Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 5.0 was really a mixed bag for me. I liked the large screen for media, the software customization making it a media player, the format support, the dual cameras, the awesome Netflix support, and the great speakers. Of course,...

Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 5.0 Review

 

Let's get this out of the way up front. The Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 5.0 is, despite its appearance and pedigree, NOT a smartphone. It does not have GSM, EDGE, 3G, HSPA+, or a cellular radio of any sort. Got that? Good.

All the best parts of an Android smartphone, without the phone ; Huge screen great for ebooks and movies ; Good battery life for an Android device ; GPS enabled, unlike its direct competitor the iPod Touch ; Memory capacity expandable via MicroSD

Might be too big for smaller hands ; TFT LCD screen quality isn’t as nice as AMOLED ; Front / rear facing camera quality isn’t as good as it could be

For the price, the Galaxy S 5.0 packs a lot of punch. It’d be a great second (or third) device for Android users, or a good entry point for iOS or BlackBerry users who want to dabble in new territory.

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...

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...

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

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

Great Player, Abandoned by Samsung (as usual)

 

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"....

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

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
