Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0 in competition to iPod Touch – Will it survive?

By | December 5, 2011

Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0 is the latest music player from Samsung which features a huge display of 5 inch LCD touchscreen. The device looks like a tablet in our hand and it has Android 2.3 OS. Galaxy player 5.0 will be a good competitor to iPod Touch if it makes a good impression in the market in next few years. With Samsung releasing  high end smartphones each month , this device lags behind other Galaxy Smartphones and tablets.

The specifications of Galaxy Player 5.0 are listed below:

  • 5 ” Super Clear LCD touch screen
  • 1 GHz ARM processor
  • Android 2.3 with Touchwiz 4.0
  • 3.2 MP Camera with VGA front camera
  • 512 MB RAM
  • 8 GB internal storage, expandable up to 32GB 
  • A-GPS , WiFi
  • Supports popular video codecs 
  • Average battery backup
Galaxy Player 5.0 is quite costlier than iPod Touch versions (difference around $20) as it has only decent specifications. The old ARM processor makes us feel a bit annoyed and the camera quality is average.
Galaxy smartphones will kill this device as they have better specifications at affordable price with GSM connectivity. iPod Touch cannot be compared with this one as it (iPod Touch) is the ultimate winner in terms of performance and battery. Galaxy player has good sound quality and internet usage is better compared to iPod Touch.
If you prefer a big touchscreen with Android that comes in a music player, you will be very happy in using this device. But the too large touchscreen makes the battery drain at some stages.  With iPod Touch reigning the music player category all over the world , Galaxy player 5.0 can roughly sit at the side of it and look what’s happening in coming years.
The price of Galaxy player 5.0 is $249 (approx. around 14000 INR). Go for it if you are an Android music lover..
