64GB Samsung Android MP3 Player

Samsung Galaxy Player 4.0I just bought a new toy. It’s an Android MP3 player.

In Europe it’s called the “Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 4.2” (YP-G1) and in America it’s called the “Samsung Galaxy Player 4.2”. This should not be confused with the latest phone from Samsung called the S4. The MP3 player has no phone features.

You can add a 64GB MicroSDXC card which comes pre-formatted with the exFAT file-system and format it to the FAT32 file-system using Android, and use it immediately.

Plus

+ 64GB of storage along with 4GB local storage
+ 4.2″ inch touch display
+ Android – need I say more ? Lots of apps available in the Google Play Store.
+ Excellent for holidays/office desk
+ Works well with a ‘portable’ BlueTooth speaker
+ DroidSound – Android app which plays Amiga/Other music works a treat
+ WinAmp/PowerAMP/whatever can play high quality Ogg, FLAC audio format files
+ Competitively priced, £90 GBP for the player and £43 GBP for the storage
+ MP3’s remain intact in their original file format. So we avoid the awful situation where iTunes renames your precious media
+ Long battery life, and replaceable/spare battery possible

Minus

– Old version of Android 2.3.6 (Gingerbread), Kernel 2.6.35.7-CL1041571se.infra@SEI-28 #1
– No stable/reliable replacement CyanogenMod firmware
– Large form factor, not so good for day to day in the pocket portability/use
– Largest size of a file on a FAT32 volume is only 4 GB
