Samsung Galaxy Player 3.6 Review

Performance:

Packing along a 1,500 mAh battery and using it via Wi-Fi, we’re able to get a little bit under 3 days of light usage on a full charge. Luckily, it’s not something that’s going to require nightly charges.

Conclusion:

Here’s the deal. Even though the Samsung Galaxy Player 3.6 might seem like a valuable media player at $149.99, we’re a little hesitant about it because you can actually pick up some prepaid basic Android smartphones for around the same price. On top of that, it’s even possible to even find the original Samsung Galaxy S at or near the same price point, which makes it a better buy considering the superior hardware it’s packing. Some uninformed consumers might take notice since it’s priced less than its primary competitor in the iPod Touch, but seriously, you’re still better off looking into buying a prepaid Android smartphone.  

Software version of the reviewed unit:
Android Version: 2.3.6
Kernel Version: 2.6.35.7-CL964210
Build Number: GINGERBREAD.UELB5
