As the world finds itself in a frenzy looking for every smart product they can get their hands on, Samsung continues to move forward with a series of relatively low-cost media machines called Galaxy Players.

Samsung Galaxy Player 3.6 Hands-on and Unboxing

Samsung Galaxy Player 3.6 Hands-on and Unboxing

The folks at Samsung are continuing their device assault on the year 2012 with the Samsung Galaxy Player 3.6, the newest in an ever-expanding line of Media Players witha 3.6-inch display. This unit has a 3.65-inch TFT display at HVGA (480 x 320 pixel) resolution, reasonable enough for the controlling of media on the device, but certainly not sharp enough to compete for the most fantastic device of this size. This device on the other hand improves greatly on the Galaxy Players that have been released already (several months ago) by being as ideally sized and shaped for the palm as possible with an added dash of thinness for good measure.

iPod Touch vs Galaxy Player 5.0

iPod Touch vs Galaxy Player 5.0

Let's be real here: the Samsung Galaxy Player is the first real competition for the iPod Touch since its inception, and although smartphones have far surpassed the specifications of either device, they're here to battle one another, not anything else. What you've got here is a device, on the Samsung side, that's not quite as large as the Galaxy Note, a device that's still got a data connection, and isn't nearly as small as the iPod Touch, which only comes in one size - that being a 3.5-inch display. So what will we compare? Sound quality? Pixel density? How about the ability to put the device in your pocket?

Now that we've reviewed the gigantic Galaxy Player 5.0 for what it is on its own, it's time to compare to the rest of the market a bit more in-depth, starting with what at first glance might appear to be the Player's closest cousin: the Galaxy S II. Before we continue, know this: it's almost as if these two devices aren't from the same family, that's how different they are. Though the Galaxy Player 5.0 is only being released now near the holiday season, the Galaxy S II (in all its forms here in the United States) takes no prisoners when it comes to power and abilities.

Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0 Review

With the absolute barrage of Samsung Android devices having been released this summer, fall, and on into the winter, you'd think that they'd just skip sending out the Galaxy Player 5.0 altogether - it being a device essentially released internationally several months ago. Instead they're releasing it relatively silently in a way that wont defeat the iPod as many have said it would be aiming to do, but will fill the void where Samsung simply hasn't had a wi-fi only handheld media player before. Will it sell for what it is, or will it fall at the hands of its own much more impressive smartphone lineup?
