Samsung Galaxy Music Review

0. phoneArena 24 Oct 2012, 09:20 posted on

Have you ever cursed that your smartphone is not really suited to be a music player in your pocket, as you have to unlock the screen to control the player? Well, the Samsung Galaxy Music is here to remedy the situation with a dedicated play/pause button plus stereo speakers, and it won’t break the bank either, as it should be with a phone targeted squarely at teens. The specs are ho-hum, but the phone promises some extras for music aficionados, so is it likely to win their hearts and minds the way it is? Read on our review to find out...

Make this bigger and thinner. Give it 720p resolution along with an S4 dual at 1.2GhZ like droid incredible 4G lte and a 5Mp cam with 1080p video like the Gnex. Price at 280 off contract and you would killed the iPod touch 5.

every feature mentioned and reviewed in this phone is said to be mediocre but still scores 7 outta 10,,,,but good phones reviewed also scored less than this crap.

The fact that it's Samsung gives it a pass on several things. It wouldn't be an exaggeration to call this site iPhonearena or Samsungarena since the writers highly favor their products in comparison to any product made by another manufacturer, regardless of whether it's superior or not.

MUSIQ! MUSIQ! I don't get why they ever made this phone. Look, if you are an audiophile or a person who really cares about music enough to buy a phone based on it, nothing else matters other than a) DAC chip, b) DSP, c) an Amp as a bonus. Seriously, no one gives a crap about SRS or the music app, those things are trivial and many alternatives are available.

I mean a music phone should be something like this:
a) Decent DAC, like the one in Solo, in a EMR insulating cover or something.
b) Nice amp, if it had a bi-amp coupled with a active-crossover supporting headphone, I would pay a grand for it.
c) Nice big storage, FLACs and other loseless ain't small.

Agree...software enhancement is just like an aspiring singer wearing different clothes for different occasions just to look cool!
A music phone should be like THE SINGER whose voice comes from the person itself!!

Nokia X7 is the best music phone, and it's also very affordable. For the price of 170 euros you get great amoled display, great speakers, outstanding design, build quality and 8 gb microSD

very smart move, currently none of the smartphone has this feauture. The feauture that has nokia 5310 music express, no need to go on menu/music/player-album. just play the music pause the music from side buttons. no need to unlock screen. brilliant.
