Samsung Galaxy Player 3.6 Review
Introduction:

Love Android smartphones, but don’t care for the cellular connectivity that normally accompanies them? Well, you’re in luck, because the Samsung Galaxy Player 3.6 aims to provide the wealth of functionality found with Android, without costing a whole lot of money out of your pockets. Priced at $149.99, this portable media player is Samsung’s answer to comparable devices such as Apple’s iPod Touch.


Design:

Without a doubt, the design of the Samsung Galaxy Player 3.6 follows in the same premise as most other Samsung made devices – meaning, it’s comprised out of lightweight plastic. However, it lacks any sort of appeal with its appearance, and ultimately, it comes off as something forgettable.

Around the sides of the Galaxy Player 3.6, we find a 3.5mm headset jack, microphone, microUSB port, volume control, power button, and a spot for a lanyard. Furthermore, much like its smartphone counterparts, it features a front-facing VGA camera and a trio of Android capacitive buttons.

Flip it over, we find a 2-megapixel camera and two notches for its speaker grill in the rear of the device. Meanwhile, prying off the rear cover grants us access to its 1,500 mAh battery and microSD card slot.

Display:

Many of Samsung’s smartphones are outfitted with some high-tech displays, but sadly, the Galaxy Player 3.6 settles with the leftovers. Specifically, it’s donning a 3.65” HVGA (320 x 480) LCD display that’s one of the poorest quality we’ve seen in a while – mainly because we’re repulsed by its bland colors, poor viewing angles, and its near invisible appearance outdoors.
