What's a Tablet PC?
Tablet PCs are compact, ultra-portable entertainment devices that let you read email, surf the internet, read eBooks, view photos, play games, listen to music and watch video files. Most tablets are based on a smaller operating system, which allows you to purchase and download additional applications from supported stores. Tablet PCs do not have a CD/DVD drive and will not run Microsoft Windows or its applications. Tablet PCs function as a secondary device for casual entertainment purposes, and are not meant to replace a computer. They are ideal for use around the home and on the go with Wi-Fi or 3-4g mobile broadband connections (pay as you go, contract may be required for service).

Android PMP

I think that the Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0 is the best pmp on the market. It offers lots of things that competitors don't. Like a bigger screen, a microsd card slot, high quality stereo speakers, and etc. If you are planning on getting a new pmp compare this product with the leading competition and you will see why I chose the Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0 over them.

I really like the Galaxy Player 5, but it has some deficiencies. First, a simple manual explaining the design and key functions/apps would go a long way toward making this device truly powerful. The manual basically show a picture of the device with labels for the buttons - lame. Second, there seems to be no O/S upgrade path. Samsung should simply tell us what upgrades, if any there will be. Not answering customer questions about this on the webpage leaves customers feeling abandoned and frankly, used. Some apps don't seem to work correctly or even logically. Tell me, why would a GPS app require wifi connection? If I was connected to wifi, I wouldn't want an app to tell me what turn to take next, right? Oh, and if I can't use the app without a data connection why pretend you're giving me something good, when really, it's useless? Frankly, a little information and common sense would leave me less frustrated. I shouldn't have to comb the internet for info that should have been in a manual.

I have had my player since November (about 8 months) and now it is frozen. It froze while I was browsing through my pictures and so I turned it off to restart it. Then I turned it back on however exactly 3 seconds later, I shut back down. I tried multiple times to try to turn it on but It never responded. I was able to get it into system recovery and I tried rebooting it but got no response. I REBOOTED ABOUT 100 TIMES, NO JOKE but it would just pull up a white screen and then show the "samsung" logo and then go back to recovery. I EVEN TRIED WIPING THE DATA AND GOING BACK TO FACTORY RESET BUT EVEN THAT DIDN'T DO ANYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!! Samsung definitely needs to fix their system and I am very disappointed with this product. I had many irreplaceable photos and videos on there and there is no way to get them back. My friend has also had many issues with the Samsung Galaxay sIII. I will NEVER reccommend this to anyone. apparently Best BUy has discontinued this product also because of it's horrible performance.

I bought this as a phone replacement since I mostly used the data on my phone plus I can make calls over wifi which is basically everywhere. The first thing that stood out from the iPod touch and most phones was the screen size. I have the larger of the two models which has a very bright, 5 in. display, which, when it comes to my eyesight, is great. It does pretty much everything the iPod touch does and then some when you take the fact that you are no longer dependent on iTunes into consideration. Plus the micro sd card slot is a great feature. And last but definitely not least, it is very durable. I must have dropped the thing almost 20 times (about 4 of those times being at least a 4 ft. drop onto cement) and i can only find one little scratch on it's corner (not the screen might I add) after a nasty fall in a parking lot. Altogether, this little (or big, depending on how you look at it) device has been great for about a year so far and is still going strong. I would definitely recommend it to a friend.

Happy with the product

Generally, I'm happy with the Samsung 5. I received it as a Christmas gift. It took a while to get the wi-fi to work but now that it does I'm happy. It does suck battery life so I won't use it as much as I thought I might. I did turn off things to make the battery life longer and it seems to work. I like the sound quality and the fact that I can put both mp3s and waves on the mini sd card. I do wish I could download apps from the Web site and put them on the device instead of having to use wi-fi and download them. I installed Kies and except for the fact that I can back up material on to my computer I don't see myself using it much since I can't really do much with it. There is (and according to answers posted here there won't be) no upgrade to ICS or Jelly Bean and the device can't upgrade with Kies anyway so it's rather useless. I'll keep the software on my computer for a while to see if it's worthwhile. I do like the camera and the video. I used both tools on Christmas day and was very happy with the quality.

lousy as an MP3 player, decent as a wifi-only smartphone

Customer review by dstarfire

As an mp3 player, the Galaxy Player is worse than the low cost players that cost about half as much. The default media player has noticeably poor sound quality, and lacks a way to change tracks without using the touch screen or even from the lock screen. The best use for the Galaxy Player, however, is as a cheap, wifi-only smartphone. It's got sufficient power and memory for the vast majority of applications (complex games the primary exception). Unfortunately, even that's limited by Samsung's lack of updates, and support in general. There's still no support for Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), and trying to email support about this device is impossible (not an option in model number, a required field). However, if you don't mind relying on community support and giving up certain hardware functionality (camera, bluetooth) to try newer versions of android, or you just don't like the iPad, it's a great way to join the smartphone revolution.

Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0

I have had the Galaxy 5.0 for three weeks now and think it is an outstanding product. I was looking for a tablet that would fit comfortably in my pocket and yet have a large screen. The Galaxy 5 fit the bill. The screen is huge at 5 inches. Since I also carry an Android cell phone with a web plan and can make it a hot spot, I can connect the Galaxy 5 to it and have web service all the time to watch movies surf the web and do email. The camera is excellent and takes very good pictures. The display screen is sharp and clear. I enjoy the large internal storage and can add up to 32 GB's more with a micro SD card. I added only 16 more and feel it will serve me well for what I want but I can always add more. The device is fast. Web pages open rather quickly. The case is metal and has the feel of a high quality product. Two stereo speakers are much louder than a cell phone. It also serves well as a book reader with the addition of certain apps. Battery life is excellent and much better than the average smart phone. I would highly recommend this device.

Great Player

I have used "other" MP3 players in the past from the two big names in computing etc. And now finally I have my hands on a Samsung player 5. Using Android, i must say I have been impressed with the battery life, screen size and ease of use of the Player 5 although it does run Honeycomb and with no update to ICS (Nor will there be), it is slightly slower on at times a little less responsive as my S3 or even my S2 Galaxy phones. I also look forward to the Galaxy Player 5.8 once it finally ships (There are already many reviews online and that device will run ICS and maybe even Jellybean). One of the many features is battery life, this is up there with the other "top" media players along with access to the Android market (However you may have to install the new Google Play store app manually if you get stuck with a "terms and conditions page"). I also like the whole range of file extensions it will play without having to install codecs. It will also run a 64Gb card if you know how to format it through your PC making it the best value for money player you can buy right now.

Outstanding in every way!

First off I was trying to pick between this galaxy player and an ipod touch. At first sight i knew this would be an outstanding media player. The audio/video quality is amazing. It seems bulky and heavy when looking at it, but often i forget about it when its in my pocket (and yes it has fit in ever pocket that i have tried putting it into). Playing games, listening to music, watching videos, etc... by far out rates my friends ipod touch. The best thing about it is the LONG battery life, no im not being sarcastic. I was able to play games, watch videos and listen to music for a solid 3 days without charging it, and it still had i think 25% left. The only thing i wish different about it is that the battery was removable, but im happy the way it is. Im able to take my galaxy into restaurants, stores, and other places where my brother has to leave his tablet in the car because its too bulky.

Best "PDA" I've ever had!

Customer review by OwnerofTigger

After being a Palm PDA user, I finally decided to upgrade. And since I don't need a cell phone, this has been a perfect fit for my needs. I love that I can quickly look up stuff on the internet, have ALL my music on the player, keep copies of Office documents that I refer to frequently and I also downloaded a copy of the US Constitution so that I always have it with me! Both my girls have iTouches and I think they are kicking themselves a bit. I love that I am able to connect to my computer and just drag & drop items to my device. Though I do wish the camera had the ability to zoom before taking a photo and perhaps having keys/buttons to control brightness or the ability to access "settings" for outside viewing or inside viewing, because there seems to be too many steps to get there and maybe a sleeptimer. But there aren't too many negatives I've found with this player. The battery life is excellant. I plug it in every night to charge and it lasts a long time. I'm glad I made this purchase. If only there was a larger selection of cases/clips for this device, that would be even better!
