    Comments about Samsung 8GB Galaxy Player 4":

    As one of the previous reviewers said, works great with Dell Voice for free voip calls and Text Plus for free SMS. Can replace a cell phone if you are always near a wifi access point, but you have two different numbers, one for voice and one for sms text messages.

    Works with all android apps I have tried so far, the GPS does it's job pretty well and with offline maps can work anywhere.

    The only drawback is the rather short 3-4h battery life when using graphical intensive apps (movies, 3d games, etc).

    I bought this as an upgrade going from a first gen iPod touch and I would never go back. Android rocks and this is a great product.

      Add Text Me and Dell Voice to get a free phone number to call and text for free! (WiFi phone) Considering the performance of this device and its screen size, it is an excellent upgrade over my previous android phone. The camera could be better but that is not an issue for me.

          I had the Galaxy Player 4 for about 2 weeks, I enjoyed it very much. I am still learning about all the features, unfortunaley, the documentation is not that great. I read the entire User Guide, about 3 times, 133 pages, and couldn't find specific information about certain features.

          The one that bothers me the most is: the 16 or 17 pins connector above the Samsung name, what is it for? the manual refers to it as the "Earpiece"
          THIS IS NOT A PHONE, it has it's own speakers!!!!
          If anyone has any information about this connector, I like to know, just curiosity.

          Anyway, I like it very much, and I will figure out all those features, eventually.
          I will recommend it.

          Cool andriod equivalent for ipod.
          Camera quality is ehh.
          Does have decent video with zoom capabilities.

          Sometimes touch screen isn't too exact.
          Has FM Radio!!!
          Good product all in all though.
          Comes with a bunch of apps installed.

          Can add more memory with micro sd card

            Pretty nice product, the gps feature is great(you can download offlines maps and use it later) heard people complaining about the wifi connection problem: this only happen with belkin router.The pixels resolution is good and compare to a ipod 4th gen you can barely tell the difference.The only downside is the camera, it should come with a flash like on the 5 inch version.Note that on this version you can change the battery yourself.The device is pretty reactive and yeah it comes with a capacitive screen so figure this out by yourself its ideal for people who want the feature that come with a smartphone but don't want to pay for the monthly fees.I don't understand why Samsung advertise this as a player since it's so much more.

              Very usefull device as a substitute for an ipod touch. Comes with android 2.3. Nice big Screen. Excellent external speakers, very loud. Expandable memory is very useful. Fast and preforms well, like a Samsung Galaxy S2 without a phone and contract. Wifi reciever is a bit weak and back cover feels slightly plasticy but otherwise a great product.

              This product by Samsung is like a lot of thier stuff. It is extraordinary in every way. I was surprised at all it could do. The thing was amazing.
              The only thing it couldn't do is what I wanted most out of it. I wanted it to be able to tune in an FM station and record from that station onto itself. But it couldn't do it, so I sent it back. I honestly can't say how amazed I was by how it could do so many different thing, and very well. I was totally impressed with it.

              Using it as a replacement for an aging Palm Tungsten T3. This Android based can do a lot more than my old Palm since it is connected anywhere I can have a WI-FI connection. It is not possible to use a stylus and because of this, you need to get used to a new approach. Some of the included apps that were on the Palm are not as simple to use: the calendar needs improvements. There is no Notepad where the stylus could be used to quickly scrible notes on the go (may be there is an app somewhere but I did not find it yet). It is taking me some time to transfer documents (I had Documents To Go on the Palm for text and spreadsheets). But I love the new possibilities, it is much more like having your computer and a camera in your pocket all the time. I installed a few quite nice apps: a "radio" app allowing to get Internet Radio (I love to lesson to live French radio...), RealCalc, a superb scientific calculator with standard and RPN modes, Book Catalog to make a database of our books, Google Sky Map to learn about planets and constellations. And it so easy to search the Internet for any word or question.

              I was looking for an Android device, but I didn't want a smartphone. After much searching, I found the Samsung Galaxy Player 4 - a 4-inch Android tablet. It has all the features of a Samsung Galaxy S phone, but without the cell radio. Fantastic for checking emails while travelling.

              Comments about Samsung 8GB Galaxy Player 4":

              The player just works. Nothing is greater than a smart phone but it comes without the monthly fee. I can manage my music without the cursed itunes controlling everything. Skype works awesome, you just use it like a phone or set it on the table for video mode. I can check email, weather surf the net without booting up my laptop. I wish more manufacturers especially RIM would come out with a competing product(small Playbook).
