"B is right. IPod touch or low cost Android tablet"3.0 starson by Flyguy29
Pros: Bigger screen than ipod touch for pocket video and more comfortable web surfing.
Cons: Poor Audio
Not all codecs supoorted, especially uncompressed AAC.and.some MP4
Difficult to win potential iPod touch custokers over.if difficient in these areas.
Summary: I agree with the review'l assessment. I Want to like it and picked it up overseas. Like my Galaxy S2, I was supremely disappointed with rt he audio quality next to the iPod touch and old Samsung YEPS. Taking a step beck in audio quality is like Ferrari reducing horsepower and torque in favor of prettier sheet metal.
Audio- why sacrifice this on a PMP? I use this class of device for audio, so I don't know who Samsung is trying to win over here if not people who listen to music. Sony, to its credit, TRIES to beat Apple, and while I do not like the digital amp, its a worthy competitor here.
Like other Samsung android phones. I cannot port al of my iOS AAC MP4 files and play them back. I need to convert them, making this player a harder sell, and IWANT to like it....HTC phones support uncompress AAC.....maybe Samsung is just catering to the "I hate Aplle no matter what reason especially since I have a 5" screen" but do not actually plan to use it for musoc or video.
